“If you go to an American town where a fawning crowd of thousands of fundamentalists anxiously await your every tortured word of biblical interpretation, and nobody sends a roving band of Uruk-hai to round you up and throw you in a dank cell in Isengard, maybe persecution isn’t the most pressing problem you face.”

  1. Probably not, but fundamentalists are as devoted as cultists and far more numerous; they’ll believe pretty much anything. So if somebody says “There’s Uruk-Hai at the Gates!” the whole crowd will be riled up to action. It’s not that difficult to paint any rival up as the enemy sent from Isengard to destroy you and yours – particularly with inerrancy as the gospel truth and proof of veracity.
