    The author of this article writes about people defined as hateful extremists. He speaks of labelling non-Jews as Amalekites (enemies of the Jewish people) who should leave or die. I don't know these people, or the truthfulness of this article. But one thing I do know: I am a conservative Evangelical Christian, and I guess some people would call me a "fundamentalist". However, comparing us and our summer camps with the description above is ignorant, mean and hateful. Growing up, I received religious education at summer camp. I studied the Bible and prayed, worshipping, not like a Catholic reciting prayers, but like the Evangelical I am. But I also had time to laugh, play and make friends from across the country. Yes, I believe in the triune God, Jesus is my best Friend, I speak in tounges and I follow the biblical value system of Evangelical Christianity (no gay marriage, no abortion etc.). But our summer camps, or our lives in general, are peaceful, friendly and fun.
