    Their Double Standards And Hypocracy Amuses Me

    Their view on the bible.They seem to chastize liberal Christians, claiming that they do not follow the bible in their entirety, while they accept everything the good and the bad.  Oh Really?  First of all, being a blind follower is not something to be proud of.  However they...

    Well..fundamentalism

    Dislike the behavior, not the person. Unless the person is cruel to me or does something bad to me in the name of their cause. And fundamentalism of every kind, not just religious. It tends to breed extremists (*but not all fundamentalists are extremists).

    The Danger of Fundmenatalism

    I have spent years dialoging with fundamentalists. Their search for certainty takes all the mystery out of life. Their assertion of certainty is a denial of faith. (Faith and doubt are part of the same thing) Deep down it comes from their own deep insecurty and a need to...
