    are threatening, illogical, not based in reality and  do not accept valid & science-based human history.  They are not understanding of context and unwilling to listen to anyone who is an "other."  I have never seen a group of people like this in all my travels all over the world.  I was among the first baby boomers.  The extremist Evangelical/Fudamentalists were essentially non-existent when I was a child and a young man in Greater Cincinnati.

    To be honest, they are a very frightening bunch of ignorant people who have gained strength all across our country.  And that is deeply regrettable.  They do not contribute to the common good

      There is a difference between evangelicals and fundamentalists. Evangelicals believe in spreading the Good News--the Gospel-- of Jesus Christ. It may surprise you, but there are a number of first class scientists that are evangelicals. Fundamentalists supposedly believe in the inerrancy of the Bible and purport to live their lives in that vein. I say purport because if you read the Bible, there is a lot more about feeding the poor, helping the orphan,greed,fornication and adultery than there is about abortion and homosexuality (dubious). So while there certainly is an intersection between the two, they are not one and the same.
