I never thought of Warfield as a fundie.
"What you describe is American Fundamentalism of the worst sort."
Read what I wrote. Not a claim, but a list of "candidate concepts." I find
these characteristics in certain people, some of whom are personal friends.
I find these characteristics (generally) in certain leaders of the
"Ridiculous Right" (sorry) -- see the recent book FOR A CHRISTIAN AMERICA by
the late Ruth Murray Brown. My real concern is that the yahoos are winning.
ICR and AIG are just that tip of the iceberg. Did you know that there have
been THIRTY-SEVEN MILLION copies of the "Left Behind" series sold? People
believe that stuff. What you and I know today as "traditional Xtianity" may
be a faint memory in a few decades.
Your list of 11 out of the 29 is interesting. But what do you do with those
you have passed over?
