    All these other things appear up front (and it's extremely important to oppose them). But underlying them is the fundie character--they perceive the world in black and white absolutes. Critical thinking requires one to consider nuance and gradations.

    John Dean highlighted this in his last book--he came across a study that showed that the right wing is filled with people with an authoritarian bent. This is how they want to raise their children--do what you're told, believe what we tell you.

    Blessed are the arrogant...for they shall be really impressed with themselves.
