The "Religious" mind-set.

Here's a quote from Lee Salisbury which I think says a lot. I would normally link to the article, but I don't think the rest is worth reading. Thanks to Mitch for sharing this quote with me.

The fundamentalist religious mind-set, whether Muslim or Christian have no tolerance for alternative or contradictory teaching. Their success is rooted in fear of disapproval and a God's vindictive punishment. The psychological cost for this self-accepted intimidation is the inability to think clearly. Worse, the adherent's sense of courage to change course is neutralized. From "The Fundamentalist Christian Mind-Set and The Problem It Presents For America" at Planet Preterist.
