The children can be found speaking in tongues, praying to God for abortions to end, weeping long and loud for their salvation, but perhaps most disturbing of all, these children worship a picture of President Bush.

The flood of young Christians into the US Army to fight for Jesus will take care of recruitment problems in the years to come.

But first they have to be indoctrinated.

And as all the great worldpowers have always known, you've got to get it into their heads while they're still children that they are going to be warriors.

The children's camp in the US where all this false-idol worshipping is going on is called 'Pastor Becky Fischer's Bible Camp'. The program is called....ahh, 'Kids On Fire'.

If the ultra-metal-gore rock band Cannibal Corpse tried to release an album in the US called 'Kids On Fire' it would be banned from Walmart.

Actually, none of the below story is funny. It sounds like they're talking about training American Christian kids to be as devoted and life-sacrificing to their god as Islamist suicide bombers.

From ABC News (America) :

"I want to see them as radically laying down their lives for the gospel as they are in Palestine, Pakistan and all those different places," Fisher said...

"A lot of people die for God," one camper said, "and they're not afraid."

"We're kinda being trained to be warriors," said another, "only in a funner way."

The evangelicals are the mostly non-violent American Christian version of what Bush calls 'Islamic extremists' - those who pull quotes (in and out of context) from their holy books and use the words as justification for exteme behaviour and beliefs.

The ABC News story describes what is happening in the US as a ..."intensifying evangelical youth movement."

Over the past decade and a half, enrollment at Christian colleges is up 70 percent. Sales of Christian music are up 300 percent. Tens of thousands of youth pastors have been trained.

Young people are targeted through Christian music festivals, skateboard competitions and rodeos.

A critic says the movement is infexible in its beliefs, and potentially dangerous :

"It's an absolute, straight-up us-against-them...It's, you're either with us or you're against us. … Not only are you a sinner, but you are working for the enemy -- the enemy being Satan."
