Bible Belt by NurIzin Bible Belt by NurIzin
For those who would say that we can't compare religious fanatism, religous fundamentalism and integrism with fascism, then read a bit about Franco's regime in Spain.

South conservatives/republicans and dixiecrats are actually quite similar to European extreme-right wing and fascism on many points as well.
Europeans living in progressive countries, or progressive Europeans, consider extreme religiosity and conservatism as seen in the Bible Belt as fascism, or at least, despise it as much as fascists.
Many extreme-right wing groups (in Europe) are "far-christians", in alliance with neo-fascists and neo-nazis.

Many of the Neo-Nazi European groups are actually fairly secular.

I would say that this comparison is a bit extreme, but then again, if you go to Mississippi or Alabama, you wouldn't be hard pressed to find a cracker who doesn't realize the American Civil War is officially over.

Religion = fascism?  Really?  So those missionaries in Africa and elsewhere are not in fact exposing themselves and consuming their own time and money helping the starving and sick, but must obviously be in fact the people responsible for such.  Am I getting the "logic" right here or am I going to be abused with some very "sophisticated" sophistry?

He's not referring to all religious people, he's referring to those who try to impose their religion on others through various means, aka the Christian right, with it's efforts to limit abortion and the rights of homosexuals.
