I hope (and think, based on history) the radical guys will slowly get less radical.
I hope (and think, based on history) the radical guys will slowly get less radical. Of course there will always be a group considered the most radical of whomever is left, just as getting rid of the shortest person in a group just creates a new shortest person.
I consider fundamentalists of all religions as having far more in common with other fundamentalists of different religions that they do with their own religion. They're basically all saying, "I'm right and you;re wrong, and I will do anything at all to prove that fact to you." Fundamentalism is a danger for all religions.
I tend to think of it as a part of human nature, not religion, per se.
I think there is a too-easy tendency to blame institutions, as a means of not confronting ourselves.
Maybe "radical" is a western point of view. From the point of view of the "radical", they may be traditionalists reacting against what they might see as assimilation by the secular west.
Where do you see blaming of institutions? or Religion?
