It isn't even about Christianity, really. it's Islam as well, and in some countries it's political rather than religious. Even in this country the insanity is becoming more political. Some people in the U.S. use the word "liberal" the way they used to use the word "nigger". The poison is not the specific religion, the poison is the fear and superstition based ideologies that now perceive modern science, modern reason, and modern reality to be their "satanic" enemy. Almost no one is anti-Christian, or anti-Islam, or anti-any other religion. But the extremism of this toxic religious "fundimentalism" (I prefer the term absolutism), whatever ideology it infects, does cause some people to have an equally extreme reaction to it.Originally posted by Chileice And that does not only apply to fundamentalist Christians but fundamentalist anti- Christians as well.
People who have been abused by this poisonous absolutism in their own past are naturally going to react very strongly to it when they see it happening again. Can you really expect them not to? And they have good reason to be so alarmed. Too bad the rest of us aren't recognizing the danger the way they are.
