This is how radical Christian parents homeschool their children

The documentary Jesus Camp was released in 2006, and it provided a shocking window into the indoctrination of kids who participated in an evangelical Christian summer camp in North Dakota.

One fascinating part of the film shows how the indoctrination continues inside the home. Levi, who the filmmakers follow fairly closely, is a charismatic kid who fashions himself to be somewhat of a preacher. Watching him and his brother interact with their mother is revealing, considering that she smashes any notion of independent thought or questioning.

“If you look at creationism, you realize it’s the only possible answer to all the questions,” Levi’s mother tells him during a lesson.
