Fundamentalism, American style

James Dobson was with his buddies in Nashville last Sunday for Justice Sunday II, a nationally broadcast Christian fundamentalist rant against the power of the Supreme Court. In the meantime, Jewish fundamentalists are clinging to their homes in Gaza, trying to hold on to land so dangerous to live on that most Americans wouldn't be willing to visit there. While I certainly support the withdrawal from Gaza, I find it interesting to see the gaping difference in how the Jewish fundamentalists are willing to sacrifice so much for their beliefs, while what American Christian fundies fight for seems so, well... easy.
