It’s Only Fundamentalist Christians They Hate

Arden Chatfield explains that the Darwinian narrative apologists don’t hate all Christians. That would be wrong says he. They only hate fundamentalist Christians and that’s okay because the fundamentalists, he explains, desire to enslave and dominate others.
Let’s dissect this a bit.
Wikipedia defines a Christian fundmentalist as a Christian who believes in
the inerrancy of the Bible, the virgin birth of Christ, the doctrine of substitutionary atonement, the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and the authenticity of his miracles.
According to this 2002 CNN/Time Poll
CNN/Time Poll conducted by Harris Interactive. June 19-20, 2002. N=1,003 adults nationwide. MoE Ã‚Â± 3.1.
“Which of these statements comes closest to describing your feelings about the Bible? The Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word. The Bible is the word of God, but not everything in it should be taken literally, word for word. The Bible is a book written by men and is not the word of God.”
To be taken literally: 36% of all adults
So roughly 70 million adult Americans are “fundamentalist” Christians.
Boy oh boy, Arden. That’s a lot of people to hate. Are you sure you have that much hate in you?
And what exactly is your definition of “enslave” and “indoctrinate”? Pardon me for asking but it seems that putting a sticker in a biology textbook saying that evolution is a theory, not a fact, falls a bit short of enslaving and indoctrinating doesn’t it?
Indoctrinating, at the least, would be like having your pet story of past evolution be the only one that can be legally discussed in a public school biology class and even going so far as to make it illegal to even criticize that theory.
It also seems a bit of stretch for you to claim this is an attack on science. Attacks would be like burning down PZ Meyers’ laboratory in the dead of night like it was an Alabama fundamentalist Christian church.
What you are doing Arden, is called “projection”. You are assigning your own rotten motives and methods to others. Shame on you.
