Short for fundamentalist. But what is that?
Some one who adheres to the fundamentals of a particular premise or religion?
Is it like an extremist? Extremie...
An extremist is one that takes things to the limit, maybe even going
to far. It's like one that believes he is justified to kill a doctor that performs
abortions because the doctor is killing an unborn baby. Instead he should
put his efforts into getting the law changed that permits the aborting of
the unborn baby. A fundamentalist is an adherent to the basic Christian
beliefs, like inerrancy of the Holy Bible, the Triune God, the virgin birth of
Jesus, the physical resurrection of Jesus the christ, and other biblical
miracles, and salvation by faith in Jesus the Christ. I believe "fundie" is
a derogatory term used for all that believe in the Christian religion by
those that do not believe. But I believe it is derived from fundamentalism.
In the USA we are told we have freedom of religion, which is partly true;
but in many cases it has become freedom from religion.
