A very timely recent blog post reminded me of our conversation here. There's more if you follow the link (including steps for keeping us from falling into fundamentalism), but here's the key points for those who just want the gist of it:
Three Mistakes Fundamentalists Make:
Mistake 1: Failing to distinguish between an interpretation of their sacred text and the text, itself.
Mistake 2: Giving undue authority to their particular interpretation of that text.
Mistake 3: Defending that interpretation at all costs, b/c what they really think they are defending is the text, itself.
