Resources on Today’s Extreme Fundamentalism

My fundamentalism of the 1950s and 1960s was bad enough, but today’s fundamentalism has become much worse, more extreme, and more harmful. Issues include patriarchy, child rearing abuse, purity and shame culture, isolated homeschooling, sexual abuse, and others. This complex mixture of interacting beliefs impact millions of believers with severe pain and baggage.

In addition, many evangelicals are returning to fundamentalism. I plan to post a number of articles on these baggage issues this year. Some of them will focus on specific personalities–which I don’t usually do on this blog; but the story of today’s extreme fundamentalism is incomplete without mentioning some of the significant leaders.
