About this Episode

We revisit the 2006 documentary Jesus Camp, a film about a pentecostal Christian summer camp, to re-evaluate their perspective on the movie and to understand our current political moment. Unlike our experience when it first came out, we were more disturbed by the film makers than the documentary's content. We talk about how everything feels like Jesus Camp now--both form and content--and then talk about the deadlock of victimhood and moral license in American politics.
