An insider's view of fundamentalist rural America
This article on fundamentalist, Christian, rural white America provides an insider's valuable perspective on this population group and its belief system. Reading it doesn't make me feel any better about our country, and the obstacles it faces toward greater enlightenment. It's hard to see how one can change these people's beliefs, and it's easy enough to transpose this scenario to much of the Islamic world, and their dismissal of the West. But it does present a more detailed portrait of rural fundamentalist America than one usually finds, and there is value in that.
