Being an atheist myself, I still have some familiarity with the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and for the most part, those teachings are not being practiced by the religious right in this country which seeks to bully anyone different from themselves and uses any subterfuge, lying being almost a given, to get their way.
More than one person has stated the obvious: a radical fundamentalist is a radical fundamentalist whether they worship Allah, Jehovah, or Jesus.The biggest fallacy I see is that MEN are deciding what their GOD intended, and then acting as if they were gods themselves. It’s all a very durable and pervasive scam … but a scam nevertheless.
