Campus Crusade for Christ

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]angel_of_olore)

Tomorrow, I go back to university for the fall semester. I frequently encounter other people on campus who want me to join Campus Crusade for Christ. They portray themselves on my campus as being a casual, 'everyone's welcome' group. My only personal experience with them was a religiously insensitive at best and downright ignorant at worst survey offered to students near the Easter holidays, with a prize drawing out of the finished surveys. As it is, the answer that I give to people when they ask me why I'm not part of "Cru" sounds just as shallow and ignorant, and I'd like to be better informed and prepared to answer the question in the future.

I seem to remember seeing a passing reference in a recent post about it being linked with Dominionism, and I was wondering if any of you have resources or just general knowledge about it. The DC Wiki just mentions that it "has been noted for using coercive tactics" on college campuses. Does anyone have any more information about the tactics in question?
