David Brooks makes my head hurt

So David Broooks read a book by a guy who seems much more reasonable (to him) than Jerry Falwell, and concludes that everyone is completely misinformed about fundamentalists.

Speaking as one with considerably more experience in these matters than David Brooks (I spent a significant chunk of my adolescence in the heart of the Bible Belt attending Southern Baptist churches), I would politely suggest to Mr. Brooks that wanting a thing to be true does not actually make it true.
