A look into the world of Fundamentalism

June 29, 2010 at 10:59 am (Uncategorized)

There’s an episode of Buffy the Vampire slayer in season 2 where Giles and Buffy are prowling round a crypt. Buffy then utters the following line.

“Note to self: Religion. Freaky.”

With that in mind, read this interview with Nate Phelps . Phelps is the son of Fred Phelps, the U.S. evangelist who pickets the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq, convinced this is God’s judgement for U.S. policy towards gays and lesbians.  

Phelps has abandoned his father’s views and embraced atheism, and, it should be noted, he is also working on a book deal. Nevertheless, I’d want to read the book when if comes out. It’s a little window into this odd little world.
