Pope Francis: Fundamentalism is a Disease

For years, we have said that in hierarchical religions, "man" is not made in the image of God, but God is made in the image of a man on top of a hierarchy. We have the quotes around the word man, because even though we are using the phrase, the phrase was coined when man supposedly did represent everyone, as the top of the hierarchy is supposed to represent everyone in hierarchies.

Now Pope Francis is saying the same thing, but naming it Fundamentalism.

"Religious fundamentalism must be combated. It is not religious, God is lacking, it is idolatrous," says the pontiff.
