"With its literal reading of scripture and legalistic approach to discipleship, fundamentalism turns the Bible into the very sort of thing Jesus rejected in the Pharisees – a weapon to control, manipulate, and exclude. Bound by the particular cultural context of its fundamentalist readers, in the hands of fundamentalism the Bible not only becomes a lifeless book; it becomes the very thing fundamentalists claim to despise: a prooftext for justifying cultural relativism. That is to say, in the hands of fundamentalism, the Bible does little more than divinely sanction the particular tastes, sensibilities, and ideology of the culture that’s reading it."
