  •  Not saying "get rid of" religion (0+ / 0-)

    But I am saying that if a line is going to be drawn between fundamentalist religions and non-fundamentalist religions, that line is going to be entirely arbitrary by the very nature of religion.  So is the point of isolating "fundamentalism" to "get rid of" fundamentalism?  If not, then what is the point?  To deprive fundamentalists of their government tax breaks and any official government recognition?  Then why draw a line at all?  Why not include all religions?

    That's my point, I'm not nearly delusional enough to think that we could literally "get rid of" all religion but I also know it is an exercise in futility to try to segregate religions between fundamentalism and non-fundamentalism.  Just include them all for any sanction that you think should be applied only to fundamentalists.
