Resources on Christian Patriarchy, Abuse, and 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.
