WOW, a danger to read the Word of God for themselves?<quoted text>
We are not saying that there is not much that is sound in some of these principles nor that as Catholics we do not share some of the same beliefs. For, after all, we are a Church of basics -- basic beliefs grounded in Scripture and our tradition developed over almost twenty centuries. But we do see certain tenets of Fundamentalism as contrary to Catholic belief. While we have always been a Church of fundamentals, we are not a Church of fundamentalism. As bishops of these deep South dioceses we note that while modern Fundamentalism is of rather RECENT origin, its roots are a part of our American religious experience, especially within the Southern Bible Belt.
Do these roots of modern Fundamentalism pose a temptation and a danger to our people? We think so. The Fundamentalist stance of literal interpretation of Scripture by each believer violates the history and tradition of Scripture itself. That is the danger.
Well yes it is they will leave catholism.
