Jesus Camp and the Excited States of America

A documentary about fundamentalist day-camping depicts another theological, spiritual and cultural divide between red and blue states

BY SOUL’S CODE — Introducing the new documentary, Jesus Camp, and a new tire-fire in America’s religious wars. According to an account in The L.A. Times the filmmakers are being terrorized:

When Fischer arrived home Tuesday after a few days touring with the filmmakers, her e-mail inbox was loaded with hate mail. She spent the next two days writing lengthy explanations to the most common accusations – “How dare you brainwash those kids!” and “Are you raising up Christian terrorists or another Hitler Youth movement?” – then posted them on her website Tuesday.

“I’ve gotten thousands of hits on my website from those people,” she said. “I’m wearing sunglasses in the airports. It’s really making me nervous.”
