The Way of the Soul

DESCRIPTION: Fundamentalism is to the spirit as cancer is to the body, a diseased parody of growth that makes death a welcome release. If we are looking for "dark powers," this is where we will find them most readily, not in "dens of iniquity," but within the precincts of temple, church, and mosque. The bond between man and God that is religion is twisted and severed in the murderous rants of militant mullahs who are no more Islamic than the ignorant reverend -- who sees September 11 as his god's vengeance -- is Christian. Malignant "mullah" or foul-mouthed "reverend", their god is one and the same, Lord of the Flies, Father of Lies, the Enermy of Man, a deformed creature aping God even as their perverted ideologies ape faith. This is darkness made visible, the "rough beast" of Yeats slouching toward Bethlehem. God is on our side!, they scream. God is with us!, we shout, falling into the devil's snare. And the God Who Cares suffers as the blood of innocents is poured forth in His name. The seventh of thirteen pages on Paths (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is the last of five concerned with extremism in political and religious belief. This page lists links to on-line resources for the study of religious extremism and fundamentalism in general and of terrorist cults in particular, the two preceding to the aftermath of the attack of September 11, the long war on global terrorism (counterterrorism), while the first of the set is concerned with political extremism and terrorism in general, and the second with 911 in particular. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources for the study of oncomemes in general, and of hate and violence in particular; links to resources for the study of pseudoscience; and links to resources for the study and practice of religion.

KEYWORDS: Al Qaeda; al-Qaida; authoritarianism; belief; blasphemy; cognitive dissonance; counterknowledge; cult; deceit; evil; extremism; false religion; false worship; fanaticism; fundamentalism; Hamas; heresy; Hezbollah; holy war; ideological pathology; ignorance; intolerance; islamism; jihad; jihadism; literalism; mass suicide; oncomeme; Opus Dei; perversion; phony religion; pop theology; proselytism; pseudotheology; Qutbism; religious bigotry; religious right; Salafism; satanism; sectarian violence; social disease; spiritual perversion; theocon; theocracy; Wahhabism; zealotry

But they were all true believers, both sides. Secular terrorists or holy terrorists, what difference?

Religious Extremism and Fundamentalism

The Ultimate Blasphemy: Terrorist Cults

While preserving the outward form of religion, they are a standing denial of its power. Keep clear of them.
Paul of Tarsus (2 Timothy 3:5, Revised English Bible)

Ecclesiastical claims to possess infallibility in any formulated version of Scripture and creed or in the articulations of any council, synod, or hierarchical figure are to me manifestations of idolatry. Such claims do not serve the truth. They serve only the power and control needs of the ecclesiastical institution. ... If the church provides security, it cannot provide truth.
John Shelby Spong

The truth is, we lack the touchstone by which to distinguish authenticity. The real hiddenness and the real corruption of tradition stem from the ignorance of this fact.
Jacob Needleman

It's becoming increasingly difficult to tell the 'Phonies' from the 'Realies'.
Lucy (from a Peanuts cartoon by Charles Schulz)

I'm afraid of the dark, and suspicious of the light.
Woody Allen

The Ultimate Blasphemy: Terrorist Cults

In Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and in the internal politics of almost all Arab countries, violent tensions have been created by the upsurge of a form of Islam that finds the tolerant co-existence of religious beliefs incomprehensible, indeed threatening to the process of salvation.
Bryan Appleyard

Prison could be more spacious and more beautiful than this oppressive and darkened society.
Alia Shuaib

For the September 11 "Islamic" terrorist attack on NATO and the West and its aftermath, the war on terrorism (i.e., global or international terrorism, and counterterrorism, including emergency preparedness and response, special forces and special operations, and the global coalition against terrorism), see September 11 and Aftermath and Response: The War on Terror. (Not all terrorists are fundamentalists, and not all fundamentalists are terrorists, but if (as I believe) all fundamentalism is blasphemy, then terror in the name of God is the ultimate blasphemy.)
