I've seen it. I think it represents a scary element in Christianity. The people in this documentary were political and ignorant, using this camp to brainwash children into a cult sect of Christianity.

Most of those children will probably grow up to be agnostics, atheists and legalists

I'll also add that I think this is a very fringe group and not representative of your average Christian fundamentalist.

As a Christian, I can say honestly that that documentary scared the everlovin' crap out of me.

It's not indicative of Christianity nor is it indicative of Christianity in North Dakota.

I've seen it. I think it''s scary. It's very extremist. I found myself wondering throughout the movie if the children who attended the camp would be mentally scarred for it.
I also don't know how they can justify praying to the cardboard cut-out of George Bush when Christianity is implicitly against idolatry.

I've noticed churches use a lot of humor these days and then guilt induce you at later least expected times .........
