A great op-ed piece by a sociologist, of course … “To move forward, we, as a country, need to lower the political conflict. Yes, the views found in fundamentalist churches are not exactly the same as those at the National Science Foundation. But we would see less of the polarizing “we real Americans” rhetoric from the religious right if its members were not ridiculed as know-nothings.” And I agree … he actually derives his opinion from data he’s gathered in regard to actual Fundamentalist and Evangelical Christians as well.

Understanding what concerns the other side
By Jaime Wright
About Jaime Wright
An individual so traumatized by his parents' late-in-life conversion from "life in the fast lane" to born again Christianity that he has been driven to study religion for the rest of his life. His main interest is in religion "outside the box" ... religiosity as it happens in small groups, subcultures, and organizations. View all posts by Jaime Wright
