marty D Fundamentalists of ANY stripe. yuchh! (75* d) Fundamentalists of ANY stripe. yuchh! 10 Jun 01


Sometimes it gets so tedious trying to see issues from all sides when there are so many narrow insular people around. How does a person reach adulthood and see things as black and white as it would appear from listening to talk radio or even reading some of the political threads here? I'm not talking just about the 'born agains' and their 'one way' blather, but those on both sides of Irish or Palestinian issues who'll happily watch a death-toll as long as it favors 'their' side. Even on this side of the ocean, having moderate views (trying to understand the other's guy's position) is seen as weakness. I'm sick of killers being 'freedom fighters' or 'terrorists', no matter what the issue. they're killers and intimidaters period. I didn't know I'd be venting today til I stupidly checked up on that 'Happy Birthday Israel' Thread. I guess I'm just tired of ALL fundamentalists.
