From: Charles Nemo To: Thomas Frost Subject: Re: Talking To Fundamentalists Your points are interesting. I'd like to "chill out and wait", but fundies make me VERY nervous. They actually LUST for Armageddon and bitterly resent those (such as environmentalists, New Agers, etc.) who delay it by seeking to make the planet a better place to live. As for the docile majority, their sheer weight may carry the process along (e.g., via war in the Middle East fought by lots of "good soldiers") as mobs frequently do under the influence of charismatic leaders. It is true that there may be some disagreement in televangelist ranks, but their overall thrust is a common one. Independent thought, not platitudinous handwringing, may be the thing that saves us all. Keep the spotlight on what they're REALLY doing via press coverage, etc.! Rigid thinking of any sort (from the now-deceased Ayatollah Khomeini, his successors, or anyone else, including me!) is VERY dangerous! --- KramMail v3.15 * Origin: Opera=Amorum, BaphoNet-At-Night -> (718) 499-9277 (1:107/666.0)
