Conservatives religious fundamentalist groups are trying to impose their narrow religious views and beliefs on the entire country. Their actions are a threat to the civil and religious liberties to all who follow another or no religion. One of their goals is to end secularism and prevent heresy in the whole country. They want strict limits on the freedom of women, on how they dress, date, work, who they associate with. Thy want to ban much of the popular culture and entertainment sectors, all that do not meet their moral code. They want to suppress minority religions and atheists. They want their beliefs enacted into law. They want their religious monitors to enforce these laws.
Their beliefs, if imposed an all of society would suppress civil rights and personal and religious freedoms. They want most women to stay home and take care of husband and family. Some of their members harass women who choose to wear in public what the fundamentalists call immodest clothing. They also harass those women with phone calls. Some physical threats have been made.
These fundamentalist groups have more numbers and influence on government than most people believe they have. They are not just a tiny minority.
