It's actually called child abuse.
Reading this and the testimonies is an example of cultism and mental disorders being transmitted, contact highs are transmitted especially through people who probably suffer from epileptic seizures. When they see visions, they are probably having mild temporal lobe seizures, which can induce hallucinations, especially spiritual ones. One should read about "John Slocum and the Shaker church" if they want to see this phenomenon played out in real life. Here on the west coast in the early part of the 20th century some Puget sound natives had visions and founded the Shaker Church. It was in reaction to their oppression and loss of traditions. They adopted the jesus story so they could practice their traditional forms of belief under the guise of christianity. The American government had banned all meetings for traditional religious meetings when the ghost dance was banned in the late 1900's, so they came up with this compromise. They go into the same types of possession, shaking and chanting etc., as this article describes.
It has grown into a form of perhaps occultism, since then, but they do attract some wild people- mental illness and child molesters, outcasts downtrodden, rejects and loners- there is an electrical charge to this belief and they hold hands to transmit their feelings to each other. Some of the stories I have heard, like people bursting into flames, seeing visions of a snakes attacking your heart- there is a lot of mystery around their meetings. Another thing about these churches and meetings- there isn't one that has electricity! They use candles only for lighting and they have meetings that go on late into the nite. Perhaps the frequency that electrons travel at or the electrical field in wire interferes with their rituals.
It is believed that the visionaries and those that see auras are suffering from epileptic type problems and the visionaries are a way of reaching across to their ancestral ways and is a way for native peoples to try to recapture their lost mystic roots of belief. Perhaps this is what the people who run these camps have modelled their camps after, to get the reactions they want with poor innocent children as the receptors of this adult form of control and abuse on their children. Ain't programming the easiest thing to do when you're dealing with an empty slate like a childs mind, ready to receive the wonders of faith. All you have to do is yell FIRE or something like that when they're vulnerable and they've got it. The god meme. Triggers work!!
Thanks for bringing this up again. Wonder how mga is doing? Check out this post and go to the testimonials to find examples of how manipulating children and designing their intelligence is the new wave thing to do in America. Hope this never catches on!

Disgusting that parents would allow this, worse that churches endorse it, worst is the government has an obvious agenda to create their own type of country with a fixated and controlled belief system. Soon it won't just be a war on drugs coming into your country- it will be a war on information coming into your country!! Keep the infidels and their ideas out of our garden !!! Can we say Christibans?(as in Taliban?)
Intelligent design or designing intelligence?
