EVANGELICALISM AND FUNDAMENTALISM --- DELUSION AND BRAINWASHING 8/86 Evangelicalism. Fundamentalism. Isn't there a dark side to them. If one is to be perfectly blunt about it, aren't these religious movements deeply wrapped up in deep mind-bending, brainwashing, self-hypnosis and self-delusion? I think they are. And they can so powerfully delude and brainwash that one is very lucky if he can ever get out from under them once they have a firm hold on him. If he does manage to break away from their hold it is likely to take years. And there is nothing more able to cause emotional and mental imbalance and confusion than deep self-delusion, self-deception and brainwashing. The most confused and unhappy people I have known have been evangelical fundamentalists. It is a whole body of theory and practice that I am deathly afraid of. I have to consider it a variety of Christian apostasy.
