Not just a protest

People Against Fundamentalism (PAF) is a small grassroots association made up of a few people, who have other day jobs, and a Web site: http://endfundamentalism.org.

Paul Chapman said he and others who make up the core of PAF see fundamentalism, Christian and non-Christian, as one of the biggest problems the world faces today. He said fundamentalism is finding power in objectifying other people.

"Fundamentalism at its core takes its holy text and uses them to bash people into oppression," Chapman said.

PAF is an organization that does not base itself in religious beliefs, although many who are organizing and participating in the protest against Driscoll do come from a Christian standpoint.

"This is a broader impact than just Christianity," Chapman said. "This is something that we think is of concern to everybody despite their faith background."
