"The New Fundamentalism" by Tom Junod - Esquire.com

Esquire's Tom Junod tries to make sense of that idiot pastor down in Florida who burned the Koran, as well as the lethal attacks (beheadings!) the book burning inspired in Afghanistan. As a news story, this whole episode just blows my mind. Too many fundamentalist morons and hypocritical pieces of shit to count. But as political commentary, Junod's argument is nearly as visceral. Damning just about everyone with equal passion, showing us that we all may have blood on our hands.
