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 video clip of IFB pastor Jack Hyles saying that if women dress immodestly and get raped that they are asking for it. The story told by Hyles is likely a bald-faced lie.

    Women in communities where covering is compulsory are raped. Sometimes I feel like these strident fundamentalists want women to be locked in a house at all times.

    I always wonder about the men who say stuff like this. I think it reveals a lot about who they really are behind the facade. And this one is a particularly disgusting creep.
