I do agree that there is a limit to how far reason can take you, though it can be very far for some. Unfortunately, fundamentalist and evangelicals will only understand this if they have an open mind and heart. Religious fundamentalists tend to take the view that 'God said it, so it will have to be this way.' Because anything short of God’s will is unacceptable, religious fundamentalists don't allow for a middle ground - which is a vital element of the democratic process.

The symbol of their terror was a burning cross � a fitting representation of perverted religiousity. Since the late 1970s fundamentalists have embraced electoral and legislative politics and the "electronic church" in their fight against perceived threats to traditional religious values: so-called secular humanism, Communism, feminism, legalized abortion, homosexuality, and the ban on school prayer. He represents a movement that arose within fundamentalism, but has increasingly become distinct from it, known as Neo-evangelicalism or New Evangelicalism (a term coined by Harold J.

As I note, I believe Gothard’s teachings are a deadly poison which has tainted generations of Evangelicals, and a part of me is glad to see yet another spokesperson for his organization and ideas go down in flames. Fundamentalists will insist in their blog posts (see the “ On Faith ” section of the Washington Post) that all you have to do is “read” the Bible—an assertion that ignores the multiple translations the Bible has undergone, both into English and into different idioms of English.

But Fundamentalism did not fade away, and the second aim of this essay is to assess the influence of Fundamentalism on contemporary Southern culture. Fundamentalists look to alleviate that fear by way of what I would call their desperate belief that it's 'God's will'--and at the end they will be transported to Heaven. In its widest sense, the modern is that transition and epoch, whose primary setting is Europe, which brought an end to that medley of feudalism, ecclesiastical hegemony, monarchy, and guild-based economies usually called the Middle Ages.

Why did these morally driven Christians, with their fear of God, kill their fellow man in the millions just because an 'atheist' told them to? The same thing for the homeless, prostitutes, crooks, etc. (All the people Jesus cares about) Well my response is...
