|From Greta Christina's Blog: "I get angry when believers use the phrase 'atheist fundamentalist' without apparently knowing what the word 'fundamentalist' means. Call people pig-headed, call them stubborn, call them snarky, call them intolerant even. But unless you can point to the text to which these 'fundamentalist' atheists literally and strictly adhere without question, then please shut the hell up about us being fundamentalist."|
(shrug) Sheer sophistry.
Jello Biafra got knee-capped by what he called "punk fundamentalists", for daring to question aspects of the movement / lifestyle / hairstyle / whateverthefuckpunkisorwassupposedtobe.
There are "fundamentals" that hard-core whatevers subscribe to. Just because zealous Christian literalists were tagged with it doesn't mean no-one else can be.
Apatheism rules. Or not. Whatever.
