I think I have devised a term for this type of fundementalist.

Its equally applicable to folks like Glenn Beck, Ray Comfort, Miss 'i'm not a witch', this guy, and pretty much anyone who has gained financially just from spouting such misinformation.

In much the same way an arms dealer or other unscrupulous opportunist can be seen as a war profiteer - these people are Ignorance profiteers.

And business is clearly booming. Its a pretty cozy place for these guys to be.

I just think perhaps in future, when engaging with such people - perhaps their financing is the first place that could be discussed? I think some might quietly walk away and not discuss any further.
