"Jesus Camp" and the Evangelical Youth Movement Jesus Camp , which opens today in New York and Los Angeles, has already won awards at film festivals. The documentary is about a North Dakota summer camp called Kids on Fire--now Families on Fire , which prepares Christian children, ages 7 to 13, to be part of God's Army. The film, which shows kids in camouflage and face paint, practicing war dances with wooden swords, captures a fervor that echoes that of the Madrassas in Pakistan and the Middle East that teach an aggressive form of fundamental Islam.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
