Jesus Camp to shut down

Hope no one has posted about this already. Dug up some information on Democratic Underground.

The controversial camp profiled in the recent documentary will close for 'at least several years,' according to reports.

'Kids on Fire' is run by Becky Fischer. After the reaction to the film, which included an appearance by disgraced pastor Ted Haggard, Fischer said the camp was 'not a safe ministry.'

The vandalism of the camp

The vandalism of the camp being thrown into the stories and related to the movie is unfortunate.

Too early to celebrate. This bitch could still play the 'persecution' card and wind up being stronger.

Any media attention that could garner sympathy towards this Fischer woman could enflame the freaks elsewhere. She's obviously good at preaching to idiots and kids.

THere is a wave people, the xtian right is folding..but I'm afraid this is temporary. Now is the time to organize, now is the time to act. We now have a washington lobby. We need to spread teh word across campuses, on the streets, online..everywhere...education is the key. good news. very good news.

Delay: Gone
Santorum: Gone
Allen: Gone
Haggard: Gone
Jesus Camp: Gone
Rumsfeld: Gone

Boy...it's like the foundation cracked and crumbled.

But they'll regroup, that's why we have to be ready.
