Jesus Camp for Hypocritical Gay Bashing Gay Preachers to Shut Down
Posted 10 November 2006 - 07:04 AM
"Right now we're just not a safe ministry," Becky Fischer, the fiery Pentecostal pastor featured in "Jesus Camp," said Tuesday. [note: she may have meant that the kiddies were not safe from the Hyper-Hypocrite]
The documentary, which hit select U.S. theaters during the summer, portrays Fischer, 55, as drill instructor to a group of young evangelical children steeling themselves for spiritual and political warfare.
Led by Fischer, the children pray in tongues, as is common in charismatic strains of Pentecostalism; tearfully beg God to end abortion; and bless Our Glorious Christian Leader at a weeklong camp in Devils Lake, N.D.
See the entire juicy article at the Seattle Times.

It just shows the imaginary level these people are living in. She probably watched this film and thought, "What a great recruiting tool for Jesus!" Why won't God protect her little moonys back home? Hmmmmm? Could the answer be . . . bullshit! (again)

Grady, the co-director of "Jesus Camp," said the negative reaction to the film "has weighed a little heavy on our hearts."
"Not that we had anything to do with it, but [the campground] wasn't getting vandalized before the film and it was after it, and we need to acknowledge that," Grady said.
Nooooo...what you SHOULD be acknowledging is that the people of this country are sending a clear message (see 7 November 2006, RE: Election Results) that A) they are tired of being doormats to be scraped by the boots of those in power and they refuse to have their children grow up shouting whatever the Churchie equivalent of "Allah Uh Akhbar!" is as they blow up busses, bring down historic landmarks and kill thousands of innocent people.
Hey Coyote. You and I line up on most issues, but I can't share your optimism on something like this. Yes, out of the 100 kids who go to that camp, 99 will totally forget about it the minute they spring their first Woody. But that 100th kid? If a camp like this can create even one Eric Rudolph or Timothy McVeigh, then Hank help us all because we know what one McVeigh can do.
