  •  That may be true at a subconscious level (4+ / 0-)

    But that doesn't change the fact that at the conscious level they believe with passion all kinds of things that may be contradictory and ACT on them.

    My wife had a very good childhood friend that was essentially brainwashed by fundies for much of her adult life.   At the height of it her world was so restricted that she didn't feel she was allowed to do much of anything except cook and clean.   They did not lock her up.  Her family and husband weren't part of it.  She did it to herself.  This was especially problematic as she also had a medical condition and it was going untreated during this period.

    Thankfully her husband was more sane and eventually got her away from them.   They're still religious, but of the more mainstream, tolerant kind of Christianity.

    Do NOT assume that they don't believe what they preach.  Most of them actually do, no matter how bizzare and contradictory it seems to the outside.   Their leaders? Probably not so much but it's hard to tell without getting into their heads.
