It's funny, only it's not

So John Rogers posted something going "Holy crap, there are a lot of you, aren't there? Here, go look at these" after Warren Ellis flooded his blog (not by pointing to the post I linked to, I should mention). While poking around some of those things Rogers threw up links to, I came upon this, which is pretty funny. And true. But the thesis that all fundamentalisms are essentially the same is a pretty good one. And then you should go to the link he refers to, which is no longer funny. But it is very good, very interesting and thought provoking. My favorite bit:

"One scholar suggested that it's helpful to understand fundamentalism as religious fascism, and fascism as political fundamentalism."
