The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Greatest Hits From the IFB Church Movement

bible literalism

The Sounds of Fundamentalism 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 compilation of video clips from various Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) preachers. This video is a twenty-four minute infomercial for why IFB beliefs and practices can and do cause psychological problems, for both preachers and congregants. Keep in mind that many of the stories you will hear are lies — just good preaching, AMEN!

    That big guy could have had a career in stand-up comedy if he hadn’t drunk the Jesus juice and become a xenophobic, misogynistic fundamentalist Christian preacher!

    wow! Pentecostal preachers could be just as and even more nutty. they were competing for attention most of the time. I could not watch all of this because I found myself feeling too sad over the life that was wasted listening to these bozos. my parents listened to these idiots and ruined their own lives and seriously affected their kids lives. I am thankful for people I met along the way who helped me see that none of this is normal or desirable. when will we all wake up?
