The opiate of the masses

My friend turned me on to this trailer of a documentary about the evangelical right's bible camp movement and how they, well, indoctrinate children to the most radical aspect of fundamentalist christianity. Note that the one person make an analogy to muslim fundamentalist indoctrination. My question is: if one is evil (muslim terrorist ideology, isn't the analogous, christian extremism just as evil? How can one really make a principled distinction without positing the "My God is the true God" argument which works for either side.

I think I will try to catch this one.
