This was originally written as a side-note for the One world religion article, and requires reading of that article for context.

Fundies are like the immortals from Highlander.Wikipedia As far as they're concerned, there can be only one religion — theirs. (Yes, they do see atheism as a competitor false religion that distracts people from the "truth" of what they believe. And, yes, the conspiracy theories about the Antichrist establishing a one world religion and relentlessly persecuting anyone who doesn't fall in line are likely to be quasi-subconscious fantasizing about what they want to do to everyone who disagrees with them.)
