1. Not surprised there has long been a strain of racism and bigotry in fundamentalism

while most churches are not this racist there still major issues lurking. You just have to look at some of the most popular homeschooling curriculums they're at minimum very patronizing to non white European cultures to . When you read in a "history" book that colonialism was a good thing and slavery in America wasn't that bad, it goes a long way in explaining these peoples politics. The fundie view of history is one that basically designed to defend white christian privilege.
