[ # ] Jesus Camp shuts down
November 10th, 2006 under Uncategorized

While I’m happy that Jesus Camp has been shutdown, it’s kind of a hollow victory:

The summer camp featured in the documentary “Jesus Camp,” which includes scenes with disgraced preacher Ted Haggard, will shut down for at least several years…

So it’s been shut down for a few years but so what? There’s probably a 100 other camps like this all over the place. If not, they’ll probably spring up to fill some parents insane need to brainwash their children. Do parent’s not trust their children enough to make their own choices? The fact that this came about because vandals hit the campsite in the pocket is also a bit a sad but I guess I didn’t really expect anything less.

As for this:

The married, 50-year-old father of five admitted in a letter read Sunday to his followers that he was “guilty of sexual immorality.”

Wow. I’m stunned. I never expected him to be human. I guess forgiveness doesn’t extend to people in positions of power. But then again, the congregation is also human.
