Grooming little fundies for a holy war

A while ago I posted about a Christian violent video game called Left Behind: Eternal Forces, based upon the series of novels by Christian Reconstructionist Tim LaHaye. There is a good post about the game on Political Cortex, which mentions that it has been described by some as "orientation software for the Christian militias of a coming religious war in America." The post also looks at the background of the game's developers, and questions to what extent the militaristic rhetoric of the game itself, as well as of the "Kids on Fire Summer Camp" that is the subject of the documentary Jesus Camp, should be taken literally.

Worth a read. And if you get bored, you can always convert some heathens yourself with "Billy Graham's Bible Blaster." Just follow this link, open drawer "F-H" and click on "Rod Flanders".
