I haven’t seen “Jesus Camp” yet. But even if we assume the worse about its young Pentacostalists’ degree of potential militancy, I find it somewhat laughable that people are at all fearful.

It seems to me, the co-directors of the movie (Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady) would’ve shown far more guts had they documented, say, how an Islamist madrasah incubates terrorists. I mean, strictly in terms of body count, isn’t something like radical Christianity: 0 versus radical Islam’s umpteen-thousand murdered? And, please, spare me the bit about abortion clinic violence; it’s the fringe of a fringe that barely merits a radar blip. The only reason one hears it mentioned in the same breath as Islamism is because of media “impartiality” run amok.

Anyway, you’ll never see a movie about madrasah extremism. Nobody in Hollywood wants to end up like Theo Van Gogh. In the meantime, the likes of Ewing and Grady will happily poke risk-free fun at those crazy Christians!
