This is the thirty-fourth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip from a sermon preached by TD Jakes, pastor of The Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas.

    Once again, utter nonsense dressed up as deep spiritual teaching, which most of his congregation won’t fact check. The origin of the word “hymn” is:
    before 1000; < Latin hymnus < Greek hýmnos song in praise of gods orheroes; replacing Middle English ymne (< Old French) and Old English ymn(< Late Latin ymnus)
    The origin of the word "hymen" is: 1605-15; < Late Latin hymēn < Greek hymḗn skin, membrane, the virginal membrane
    That guy is a pervert. I guess the words sound similar so he decided they came from the same root.
