Fundamentalist Plague

We all know about Islamic fundamentalists but just about every religion has their own version of wacko extremists.

Jews (Haredi)
This post was originally going to talk only about these guys who cursed and spat upon an eight year-old girl (at right with her mother). Her crime? She wore long sleeves and a calf-length skirt, just like a whore. They have organized gangs of thugs who assault any woman they deem immodest and then attack the police should they try to rescue her.

Because the Likud Party needs the ultra-orthodox parties to form a ruling coalition their extremist beliefs are gaining official recognition. When a female pediatrics professor was honored for her research she was forbidden to appear on the podium by the government minister because he demanded gender segregation.

Catholics (Opus Dei)
Blessed be pain. Loved be pain. Sanctified be pain. . . Glorify pain! ~ The Way 208
Believes in self-abuse and that the only thing wrong with the Spanish Inquisition was that it ever ended. They don't believe in overt action, their membership is a closely held secret. Their modus operandi is to secrete themselves into positions of political power where they can impose their will upon an unaware public. Supreme Court justices John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, and Samuel Alito are almost certainly Opus Dei. Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has openly praised Opus Dei.

Opus Dei has held a strange affection for fascism. Founder Josemaría Escrivá supported both Hitler and Francisco Franco. Most military dictatorships in Latin America, notably Chile's Pinochot, have been supported by Opus Dei.

Protestants (Christian Identity)
The Oklahoma City bombing? A Christian Identity terrorist act. So too have been an orgy of black church burnings, abortion clinic bombings, and an alarming array of violent crimes.

Their belief system is simple: Only Nordic and Celtic peoples are God's chosen, other whites are of polluted blood; darker races are all the soulless spawn of Satan. Science is a Jewish conspiracy, so is peace, so is freedom.

Hindus (Sri Ram Sena and others)
Eastern religions are no better. Gandhi was assassinated by a Hindu extremist. Like the others on this list Hindu extremists abhor peace and love. They believe women ought to be unseen, unheard, and treated like chattel. And they believe the only use for those of other faiths is a painful death.

Mormons (polygamists)
There is no such thing as a 'Mormon Fundamentalist.' ~ Gordon B. Hinckley
There are extremist Mormon sects that still practice polygamy and its recreational sideline of child rape. Officially, Mormons no longer practice plural marriage. However they do believe there was nothing wrong with it, it's just out of favor at the moment.

Mitt Romney's great grandfather fled the United States to Mexico in 1884 to continue his polygamist lifestyle. Miles Romney married four women in the US and a fifth in Mexico. There is no direct evidence that Mitt has married more than once. Mormonism is unique in many regards, including the church policy of stealing the souls of the dead.
