"Jesus Camp" Movie Creates Controversy

Kids going to Bible camp... that's not so unusual. But it might be when it's Jesus Camp.

According to Magnolia Pictures' recent press release: "Jesus Camp highlights the life-changing experience of three young children, Levi, Tory and Rachael, attending the Rev. Becky Fischer's 'Kids on Fire' summer camp in Devil's Lake, North Dakota.

"The camp is a riveting example of a world many Amerians either do not understand or dismiss as 'fringe' and irrelevant to their own lives. But we felt perhaps they should take a closer look," said co-directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. "The individuals portrayed in this film -- white, middle-class citizens -- are part of the fastest growing segment of evangelical Christianity worldwide, and we wanted to give an objective, honest look at their beliefs and impact on America."

"The true-to-life documentary," according to Magnolia Pictures, "details the zealous faith of a group of charismatic Christians and their children. The film depicts the passion of these young believers as they speak in tongues, fall on the floor under the power of the Holy Spirit, and shout blessings to a cardboard cut-out of President Bush."
