The new documentary “Jesus Camp” is the second by filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady “to explore the molding of young minds,” reports Stephen Holden in The New York Times’ review of the film. Having watched the trailer (see below), it appears to be a skillfully shot and edited piece of propaganda designed to paint the entirety of evangelical Christianity as raving lunatics thirsting for power at all costs. In fact, the film was so effective it led Holden to this conclusion:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
