Almost three years ago, Ex-Gay Watch complimented Real Live Preacher regarding a thoughtful post on the difficulty that both Christians and people of other faiths face when attempting to relate to fundamentalists.
In comments at Ex-Gay Watch, RLP responded:
I tried to be careful in saying that fundamentalism is not a set of beliefs. I bear no anger to those who differ from me, nor will I treat them unkindly. Fundamentalism is a way of relating to people who do not share your beliefs.
Fundamentalism is that very attitude that says, “I am right, you are wrong, and I WILL confront you and condemn you.”
Unrepentant of their own moral wrongs, fundamentalists spend inordinate amounts of time, energy and money telling innocents to “Go and sin no more.”
At it’s core, RLP said, fundamentalism is a refusal to engage in an honest relationships with people.
