On October 15, 2002 The Boston Globe printed an Op-Ed piece that stated, "Fundamentalist leaders like Jerry Falwell are a threat to democracy not because of their claims of exclusive truth but because they attempt to ignite religious wars.    Just like Osama bin Laden's version of Islam, some Christian fundamentalist clergymen are aggressive in delegitimizing other believers about their religious traditions. In particular, they are driven to forcing their brand of Christianity on others; they read scripture with a narrow lens and are obsessed with the implementation of religious law over secular law."
