Quote of the Day

Fundamentalists of any religious, political, or other kind of persuasion typically hold a number of things in common. One commonality, at least from the little I have observed over the years, is mentioned in a post about fundamentalist colleges (read the post here) and it’s my quote of the day.

 For if a strong voice speaks with apparently authority for long enough it will eventually be accepted as the voice of truth.

In some fundamentalist circles, this could be amended to read “For if a loud voice speaks…long enough” A key component to persuading the gullible and disillusioned is the mere appearance of authority.

Αυτω η δοξα
