Jesus Camp. Only in America.
Well, also in Pakistan. But they’re called “madrassas” there. And it isn’t Jesus the children are being trained to die for.
However, in fairness to the camp director, Pastor Becky Fischer, I heard an interview with her on the Ed Schultz show.
She said, convincingly, that the Jesus Camp documentary didn’t include all of her “radically laying down their lives for the Gospel” comment. (Which you can see here, if you have broadband).
Fischer said that what she means by “lay down your life” is dedicating yourself to Jesus 100%. Makes sense. I really don’t believe that Jesus Camp is out to produce little Christian suicide bombers.
It’s still scary though.
