Fundamentalists v Evangelicals
I can be an evangelical
multiculturally intelligent Christian
if I am not an anti-historical literalist,
a fundamentally white patriarchal dogmatist,
using holy scripture to divide and conquer
what divine creation has compassioned to regather.
I also know beyond death's shadow
and within life's promise
A fundamentally patriarchal believer
in God's might makes Earth right
cannot be a good news gospel driven
evangelical Christian believer
of polypathic cosmic-conscious Christ
What is healthy evangelical loving witness
is antithetical to patriarchal fundamentalist dogmatism.
Evangelical Christians follow Christ's win/win multiculturing heart path
Fundamentalists, fake-Christian and fake-Islamic
and fake empowerers of all faiths
and all natural/spiritual systems,
lead win/lose monoculturing mind pathology
To learn the difference
between fundamentalism and evangelical vocation
is to know us by our communal natural love
and our divisive anti-spiritual judgments
against those who shrink
down into fundamentally shriveled
win/lose zero-sum narcissists.
