    Sounds like a cult.

    I bet we'd agree on a lot of things; Shopping, Music, our believe that homosexuality is just a 'giving up' to one's carnal, lusts and without biological and social benefit. :D

    May not have been in the link posted; which didn't work for me. I google'd "Jesus Camp" and pulled that from another article.

    I've been to camps with similar concepts, but this one's just a little wierd. Praying is normal. Speaking in tongues is part of the Pentecostal movement. Saying a reworded Pledge of Allegience to a cardboard effigy of Bush is a little creepy. Crying over plastic fetii is VERY creepy. Now, I've been to church camp before, and it was a good thing. This one, however, is just a little off the deep end.

    I've been to Catholic "church" camps before I left the church. They were fun and they are the reason I do believe there is a god.

    But this one's a bit whacko.

    Yup, people who are inflexible on abortion and gay marriage are bad! Very very bad! Does any Christian actually think Jesus would approve of abortion and gay marriage?

    Imagine that! Christians teaching that sin is evil, and if you don't believe in Jesus you aren't getting into heaven....just like Jesus said!
