>Wrong. The term fundamentalism is just rigid adherence to the principles of whatever theology someone holds.
That's exactly right, and what I meant. This is what the muslims are doing, fighting the oppression tried on them, ofcourse in a very aggressive style, not that they began in this style, but has only grown into this style, a style adopted from the enemy.
>The only thing is that their violence is usually a little less extreme than Muslim fundamentalists use and therefore it is less in the news.
Don't you get news about that is happening in and around Israel, a land controlled by "Man of Peace" , a Christian?
Search for more and you'll get plenty more.In 1122 Christian crusaders swept over Jerusalem and slaughtered men, women and children, 'until their horses were knee deep in blood. We then went to the church to thank the Lord for his mercy.'
In 777 , Charlemagne, a devout Christian, after conquering the Saxon rebels, gave them a choice between baptism and execution. When they refused to convert, he had 4500 of them beheaded in one morning.
In the fourth century, Emporor Constantine, the first Roman Emperor to become a Christian, had over 3000 Christians executed because their interpretation of the Bible did not agree with his. That is more than the number of Christians who died at the hands of the Romans during the well known 1st century "Christians to the lions" persecutions.
