TSP 87: Fundamentalism in Rural America

The whole gang is here to discuss one single article that someone had posted on Chad's Facebook feed. It's about how fundamentalists see the outside world. There was so much to talk about that we actually just cut the conversation short in the interest of time. It's a really long article.
