In an interview with George Marsden, Professor of History, Notre Dame University, regarding the fundamentalist - modernist controversy of the late 1800’s - early 1900’s the question was asked: "What do you appreciate most about fundamentalists?" Marsden replied thusly:

"Fundamentalists are willing to take a stand, and that’s often been a difficult thing to do. If you let culture make tolerance the preeminent virtue, pretty soon you won’t have anything else. So it’s good that there are Christians who have said we need to draw a line somewhere." (Christian History, Issue #55, page 43)
