Jesus Camp on TV tonight

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Readers in the UK might be interested to hear that the Oscar-nominated documentary Jesus Camp is showing on Channel 4 tonight at 11.05pm.

The film profiles the Kids on Fire School of Ministry, a Pentecostal summer camp in North Dakota where fire and brimstone pastor Becky Fisher trains children to join the "army of God".

I haven't seen it, but it was critically acclaimed when it was released in 2006 and it looks suitably disturbing – see the trailer below:

I post on a lot of American new media sites and the stuff I see there is very disturbing. Just as disturbing as the fact that around 50% of Americans do not see anything wrong with Jesus Camp and similar promotions.

I managed to conjure a comic article out of the programme, but it is quite dark humour.
