Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter: Good or Bad Witch part II
I think a good, valid question in regard to this discussion is: What religion(s) if pared down to their actual "fundamentals" would be a threat to a culture or society.

Some to whom we refer as "fundamentalists" are actually NOT following the fundamentals of their religion-----this is the current claim of many moslems right now, and it is my claim regarding Christianity.

I personally question whether this is right---in other words, though I don't believe the name "fundamentalist" applies accurately to the fundamentalist Christians to whom most of this thread refers, I do think that it is aptly applied to fundamentalist Islam

I think that the true fundamentals of Christianity at the very least would do no harm in society, and at best would be a boon to it. Islam on the other hand, though it started its life as an enlightenment to it culture, has not been so for centuries.

What religions would you really fear for life and limb if their fundamentals dominated your society?
