    Fundamentalism is all about a return to the early church, before Popes and other things they consider perversions of the original Christian message. In this way fundamentalism is analogous to Wahhabism in Islam. The idea that one should follow one's bishop/priest/pastor instead of the Bible is the antithesis of fundamentalism; in fact, it's Roman Catholic.

    There's noting in the Bible about abortion, contraception, isolationism, xenophobia, race-hatred, or guns. These are all cultural issues that people choose to wrap in their own religious beliefs. Someone needs to make that point.

    I was married to an evangelical for fifteen years. She was a socialist.
