I run into people all the time who claim to be religious fundamentalists.
They are actually the most ruthless kind of cunning, willing to stoop to any level, and thus requiring the cover, or 'front', of being so religious
as to be unconfrontable.
I used to be a total Christian/conservative Republican. Today's right wing religious fanatics are freaky, man. Their leaders (Dobson, Robertson,
Kennedy et. al.) are fascists cloaking themselves in Christianity. Their followers are being led down a path straight to hell.
I'm a Christian who was raised to KNOW what the scriptures say, myself. These people are anything but Jesus-following.
EastCoastKid proves exactly my point.
These people who commit these crimes, they are not christian, they are not muslim, and they are not jewish. Because if you commit crimes like that,
you don't follow the teachings. In which case, "fundemantalist" is not the right word, because it's not "an extreme version of christianity",
it's either christianity, or not christianity.
