The Corner

Re: First Amendment “Fundamentalists”

Andrew, Obviously, I agree with your agreement with me (and, yes, I realize that reads like a parody of the Corner). Still I would object to one word “Fundamentalists.” My problem is largely a semantic one. We generally equate fundamentalists with those who want to get to the original, pure or authentic meaning of this or that. And none of those adjectives apply to people who believe the first amendment was ever intended to bleach all references to God from the public square. These folks are first amendment mythologists, for want of a better word.
