pillar of fundamentalism

9.6: relig/bible/pillar of salt:
. salt was once money,
money is an icon of symbolism;
symbolism is related to being used as an example .
. they were told to
not even look back at the evil city,
and when the warning was not taken literally,
that person was worth nothing by an example of wrong .
[12.21:
. this passage in the bible
could be the source of "(fundamentalism)
defined as concrete thinking:
interpreting a text literally
even when the language is obviously figurative .
. fundamentalism is a form of bowing, paying respects .]
