“It's important first to understand how religious fundamentalists of all stripes work. In order to drive up their numbers, support and media attention, they need controversies and wedge issues to get the core base fired up. The British Christian fundamentalists are importing tactics from their religious counterparts in the US where gay rights and abortion have been used for decades to wage 'culture wars' that have pushed the country to the right on social issues.”
