Pope Francis taking on the fundamentalists (Robby, Ryan and Brian)

Pope Francis had some interesting things to say on a Sunday radio interview. I am not giving him a pass on his blatant homophobia but he does make some interesting good sense from time to time:
Our God is a God who is close, who accompanies. Fundamentalists keep God away from accompanying his people, they divert their minds from him and transform him into an ideology. So in the name of this ideological god, they kill, they attack, destroy, slander. Practically speaking, they transform that God into a Baal, an idol. … In every religion there will be a small group of fundamentalists whose work is to destroy for the sake of an idea, and not reality. And reality is superior to ideas.
Of course, Robert George, Brian Brown and Ryan Anderson would all deny that they are fundamentalists. However, the text seems very fitting.
