Did My Fundamentalist Upbringing Prepare Me for Coronavirus?

Here is an interesting article about a woman who was raised in a Christian fundamentalist household and how she believes that her upbringing may have helped prepare her in some way for a global pandemic.

The author describes how one of her friends was raised in a bubble and had little contact with the 'outside world', "[whatever] exposure we had to the outside world occurred at church, surrounded by like-minded families, or sometimes the public library; the world was the size of our house, or of a church gym, and outside it waited persecution and terror."

This article could be used for Beliefs in Society as part of a discussion about religious practices and religious organisations.
