"Jesus Camp." directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady ("The Boys of Baraka"), follows Levi, Rachael, and Tory to Pastor Becky Fischer's "Kids on Fire" summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota, where kids as young as 6 years-old are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in "God's army."

The film follows these children at camp as they hone their "prophetic gifts" and are schooled in how to "take back America for Christ." The film offers a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future.

This reminds me of Dogma... \"Gotta get them hooked while they're young.\"

They already have'em while they're young, Wolight. It's just that the complete indoctrination and mind-control intensity is being stepped up.

Boot camp for future FSTDT celebrities.

I still prefer CampQuest.

Who wouldn't want to go to a camp called \"Kids on Fire\"?

8/30/2006 3:39:55 AM


Some of these people want to see kids in America acting like islamic fundiementalists.

Sounds like a good Al-Qaeda training camp for kids. What age do they begin their flight lessions and high exsplosives for dumbies?

8/30/2006 4:01:22 AM


And they chose a place called \"Devil's Lake\" to host it?

8/30/2006 4:02:17 AM


Oh, I'm in irony overload....they chose to hold \"Jesus Camp\" in Devil's Lake, ND. What, were there no campgrounds available in Hell, MI?

8/30/2006 4:21:00 AM


It ought to be considered a form of child abuse to subject children to religion. \"Prophetic gifts,\" indeed.

\"Kids on Fire?\" Drop and roll, kids, drop and roll.

See what kind of shit I have to put up with? This is the kind of stuff that goes on in a red state. HELP!
Devil's Lake floods every year as well. The jokes just start to write themselves.

The American Al Qaeda are here.

Wow, do they realize it sounds like they're following the example of African militias and paramilitary groups in recruiting child soldiers? What's next, give these kids rifles and send them to school? \"Join the Kristian Kids Korps or die!\"

Next projects for Heidi and Rachel -

\"AlQaeda Camp: The Movie\"

\"KKK Camp: The Movie\"

David Byrne had a blog article about this.

It's pretty sick.

^Do you have a link to that article? I'd love to see it.

I think I'd like to see this movie. From the previews, as twisted as this looks (and is), to me it seems like mostly bark and no bite. Twirling light-weight sticks in camo-clothes while singing Jesus songs is a far cry from any genuine training in weapons or warfare. Commentary from that crazy lady notwithstanding, of course. I need to see more before I can consider this to be more serious than a ploy to get people to pay attention to their mental illness.

The Center for Inquiry recently hosted its first skepticism camp. Sadly, it has quite a job cut out for it, with fundie indoctrination camps all over the world having such a head start on brainwashing kids everywhere. This is truly chilling.

Oh, but the Devil's Lake bit -- that piece of irony is priceless. It at least provides something of genuine humor in this otherwise terribly depressing item.

This is terrifying. I went to Church Camp when I was young, but that was still basically normal Summer Camp. This is brainwashing.

Be sure to check out the video clips on the website. Creepy stuff.

Could this be the article that you're looking for?
