CHAPTER EIGHT THE DANGER OF RELIGION

Description

My heart tells me there is a god. Yours may tell you something different. I am okay with that.
Fundamentalists are not. This defines the greatest complaint I have with fundamentalism as a
whole. They are dissatisfied with and unable to accept the fact that someone might disagree with
their belief system. They are determined—required, really—to go beyond a friendly
disagreement. They must convert the unbeliever.
To be fair, one must realize that a cornerstone of religion is conversion. A religion without
converts will quickly fade and die. To truly accept a religion, with all its nebulous facets and airy
promises, one must wholly embrace it. One must become a near fanatic. Anyone who feels
strongly enough to convert will likely feel strongly enough to share it with others and be
disappointed when they don’t exhibit the same level of enthusiasm.
