Helping or Hurting?

I saw a trailor for a movie coming out in the Fall called JESUS CAMP. Im not sure if there are alterior motives but the whole idea makes me uncomfortable. Here is what the description of the movie from the website says it will be about...

"A growing number of Evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement. JESUS CAMP follows a group of young children to pastor Becky Fisher's "Kids on Fire Summer Camp," where kids are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in God's army and are schooled in how to take back America for Christ. The film is a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future."

Go HERE to view the trailor and please, share with me your thoughts and feelings in the comments section.

The way the site describes it makes it sound good, but in the trailer some things concerned me...the convulsions and chanting creeped me out a bit...I'm not sure what to think of this movie...

We both thought the trailer was a very negative image of christianity. It scared both of us a little. Is this film a positive or a negaive?

As parents we would not want our children to be exposed to influences shown on the trailer. They appeared to be cult like.
