The youth programs are the absolute center of Mormon cult brainwashing. I remember all the pressure to get up during Youth Conference and proclaim how much you loved the church and God.
It was strange for me to see kids who swore, stole things daily, and were awful people get up and talk about their love for Jesus. The leaders seemed to think they were doing a great job with this.
From what I understand, EFY is even worse. People have told me of kids getting so psychologically amped up that they claimed to have seen angels and all sorts of superstitious stuff.
