Jesus Camp


I just saw the trailer for the documentary, Jesus Camp. I haven't seen the movie itself, and I don't know whether I will. But after watching the trailer, I felt a tight knot in the pit of my stomach. Look, I'm all for Christian camps. I attended them as a kid. In high school, college, and graduate school, I served as a counselor. They serve many valuable purposes, both recreational and spiritual. I worry, however, about a camp that seems to get kids so riled up emotionally. What's worse is that I'm pretty sure the camp in the documentary comes out of thatPentecostal wing of Christianity, which is to say, my wing. Oy vey!
