"....I think that "fundamentalist" Christianity is acting so goofy these days for much the same reason--it has become severly weakened by (at least) two major heresies, Gnosticism and Legalism. The heresies have made Christians feel a stronger need to convert everyone out of a sense that their weak faith will be proven as it is strong enough to convert others (misery loves company?).


John, you may feel that you are having a problem making your points clear, but you could not have said this any better. I find those that are most comfortable and assured with and within their own beliefs to be far less zealotic (is that a word?) in their attitudes.
