One of several things could be going on here. You could be quote-mining, misreading, or just plain wanting to pick a fight. I'm not sure what yet

I think it is more of just wanting to see how much back peddling you will do and how much you trip yourself up whilst doing it.

Hi Yenmor,

"The lady doth protest to much, me thinks."

Airing out your boyfriend and his familie's dirty laundry on a anonymous internet forum is not a way to reconcile the way you feel about it. This has nothing to do with the Dunning-Krueger effect and perhaps more to do with you not wanting to appear elitist and judgemental. Which is precisely how many fundies act.
