I sometimes think a bishop of my church who called Francis the first Episcopal Pope had it right. His Holiness has summarized my thesis that fundamentalism is a mental condition or sin, not a theology and infects any number of religions. Consider that Gandhi was shot and killed by a fundamentalist Hindu, and Mr. Rabin was killed by a fundamentalist Jew. Fundamentalism is a disease.
On other subjects however, His Holiness gives me ample reason to stay where I am, if not in the same congregation. None-the-less, he is definitely on to something with this comment.
