This means that the founders and leaders of the American Republic and the movement that supposedly despises democracy intend for similar goals. Christianity is perhaps the ultimate top-down enterprise. Judging seems to be a fundamentalist’s favorite past time. The consequences include a development of symbolic function and the emergence of reparative capacities which become possible when thinking no longer has to remain concrete (Steiner, 1987, pp. 69-70; see also Steiner, 1994, pp. 26-34).

These self-professed fundamentalists often follow the latest trends in ministry, disparage theological labels such as Baptist, and aggressively criticize any version of Fundamentalism not following their ministry style. They're willing to understand that there's metaphor and poetry in the Bible, and it's just that the truth expressed in that metaphor and poetry is without error; whereas fundamentalists would tend to want to read even the metaphor and the poetry literally.

The moderates demand participation as equals in the democratic process, while the extremists threaten violence and revolution. The global turn in the study of fundamentalism was partly inspired by widespread concern about the possible public influence of fundamentalism. They were not accusing me of inventing a fact. There was a widespread belief among the less-educated ancients that the diameter of a circle was one third of its circumference. The consequences of this trend have become obvious to all the world since Sept. 11.

They had hoped that use of this new term would cause people to think that murderous Muslims were somehow the same, (or in some sense related to), Fundamentalist Baptists. But there is a huge portion of the straight population who regularly indulge in sex hookups, one-night stands, and sex for pay, all trying to have a good time and maybe find their soul-mates. Vietnam has recently been the site for “ ethnic cleansing.” Within the blueprint for ethnic cleansing promoted in Vietnam, we find extrajudicial killings, imprisonment and torture, transmigration and confiscation of ancestral land, deforestation and environmental destruction, religious persecution of Christians, sterilizations, fines, coercion, abuse of family planning, and refugee persecution.

But Wirathu was quoted telling a reporter, “I am proud to be called a radical Buddhist.” Many criticisms of the fundamentalism have been leveled by its opponents. On the other hand, she was transformed into a martial deity. It should be emphasized that the notion that vmPFC damage leads to a bias to accept and believe more religious dogmatisms does not mean that individuals high in authoritarianism or religious fundamentalism have some kind of “dysfunction” in the vmPFC.

Its chief danger is that its teaching gives out that attaining a place in heaven is hardly, if at all, dependent on conduct and that the simple act of faith involved in inviting Jesus into one’s life secures paradise. Of anything they have, if you ask them for it, they never say no; rather they invite the person to share it, and show as much love as if they were giving their hearts…” But Colombus’ mission was to take the land for Christendom and convert all these peoples to Christianity or exterminate them and replace their culture, hence: In whichever island he touched (on his second voyage) his men killed indiscriminately whatever animals and natives they found, “looting and destroying all they found,” as Columbus’ son Fernando put it.

Hayes, "uninfibulated women are generally considered to be prostitutes in Sudanese society."38 The Sudanese case reflects the male concern with virginity and sexual purity, which is a hallmark of many cultures. In In Nomine, Khalid, the Archangel of Faith, goes through this for a few centuries, becoming increasingly devoted to a xenophobic, fundamentalist interpretation of Islam. The list goes on ad nauseam as do the alibis and "state of denial" apologetics used to explain away many such verses.

They are to exercise “dominion” over the entire world, hence the term “Dominionists.” Don’t believe me or other liberals on this topic? To each person, a verse may mean something quite different. In contrast, DagoodS said on his blog that he knows everything he needs to know about orthodox Christianity, but he (and you) failed to answer a number of arguments I made on his blog. There is still a little work to be done before we reach Nirvana, so how can we begin to adjust some of the extremities of human behavior that plague our daily lives?

YES! "God our Savior will have all men to be saved." Sandeen, The Roots of Fundamentalism (1970); M. Christ is the Head, and the saints are the Body. You may only know of me, but you're also related to my mother, to my grandmother, my great-grandmother, my great-great-grandmother, my great-great-great-grandmother etc. Its hostility to intellectual inquiry—by its very nature an interrogation of authority—causes it to wage war on scientific research and modern medicine.

He wants voluntary love from us, which means we must take a free decision to repent and to worship and love Him after being convicted by the Holy Spirit. No-one could slip in to such a building for a private moment without having to struggle against the annihilating nature of the void. I do not consider these churches Protestant (they are separate sects) and really question if they are Christian at all. But I become concerned when a group - any group - has a clear and aggressive mission of subverting and disrupting the rights of other people in an effort to impose its edicts upon the masses.
