I know fundamentalists. This tee is a testimony to some I know who are willing to relax their dogmatic beliefs for the sake of love. They come across as stubbornly dogmatic, but when a crisis arises, their gentleness and openness takes precedence. Grace, for these fundamentalists, trumps doctrine. Then there are some other fundamentalists I know who are dogmatic and hard through and through. Even in the most heart-wrenching situations, they seem coldly indifferent. I am convinced that religion or faith is not the problem, but the fundamentalist mindset in all its forms, whether in a religious, non-religious, scientific, political, intellectual, cultural or atheistic context. It is the mindset that is willing to reject, expel, alienate or even destroy those who disagree or differ.
