What's wrong with fundamentalist "Christianity"? This.

Here is an example of the ways the people who call themselves "Christians" sow divisiveness for no rational reason. From SF Gate:
(02-27) 15:08 PST SACRAMENTO, (AP) --

An evangelical chaplain who leads Bible studies for California lawmakers says God is disgusted with a rival fellowship group that includes people of all faiths.

"Although they are pleasant men in their personal demeanor, their group is more than disgusting to our Lord and Savior," Drollinger wrote on the Capitol Ministries' Web site.

The comments drew immediate fire from others in the capital, including the Republican lawmaker who sponsors Drollinger's Bible study group.

Drollinger said "progressive religious tolerance" is an offense against God and causes harm to its practitioners.

He said the other Bible study group was perpetrating a "deadly lie" by presenting Jesus as "a good moral teacher who loves everyone without distinction."
Drollinger believes that his unproven religious fantasies, of no better validity than those of Joseph Smith of the Mormons or Muhammad who established Islam, are sufficient reason to set men against each other. He'll not be happy until America is trapped in a set of religious civil wars like those bedeviling Iraq today.

Drollinger's behavior itself is totally immoral and is dangerous to others. He imagines that his personal beliefs are justification for shunning others, and if he were given government police powers, he would happily do worse in the name of his warped "God." He is quite unsuited to minister to elected politicians who are trying to make government work to improve society.
