The fundamentalists, also known as fundies or by their Latin classification Homo Phobius, are a subspecies of humanity distinguished by their phobia (simultaneous fear and hatred) of most people who differ from them in any way, based on their extreme religious conviction.
The threat of eternal physical torture in the mythical flaming demon zoo known as "Hell" is the fundies' primary method of insulting others. They base this conviction on millenia-old books of badly-written tribal customs, myths and genealogy which have been mistranslated many times by other fundies. In the case of the Muslim fundie, these books are contained in the Koran, while the Christian fundie worships the Bible.
The brain of the "Christian" fundie, while generally underdeveloped and often host of outlandish delusions, has a large capacity for memorization of Bible verses (or in the case of the Islamic fundie, Koran verses), often in the Shakespearian English of the King James Version, as this is less easily understood, and thus more easily twisted into the basic fundie message, which is "hate thy neighbor." Fundies, however, occasionally use the euphemism "love thy neighbor" (a rare example of non-literal fundie language) to convey the same idea.
Fundie dogma, along with what has already been mentioned, includes the concepts that differences between individuals, differences often so insignificant as to be unnoticeable without spying, should be the basis for undying hatred of those who posse...
A person, usually heavily right-winged christian, who tries to force his religion and ideas down other people's throats. Impossible to argue with, because they always use the bible as proof that they are right. Try to censor everything. When anyone tries to stop them, they claim they are being oppressed, and the "opressor" is a liberal activist who is against people of faith. Takes the bible waaaaay too literally. Laughs whenever they are beaten in a debate, stating cockily, "Well, I win 'cause you're going to hell."
If you are a fundie, you are probably not reading this website.
A fundamentalist; a Christian whose ideas are completely in-line with church dogma. Fundies, for the most part, do not think for themselves, and are often frighteningly evangelical.

They're all such fundies, it's hard to have an objective, open-minded discussion about any religious issue.

--atheists/agnostics/non-"born again" Christians
--homosexuals and others with non-heterosexual orientation
-racist lynch mobbing and other related crimes directed against specific races
-protection for those who commit such acts mentioned above (ie. by FILIBUSTERING anti-lynch laws all the way into the 1950s)

and so on.

If you're not a fundie
born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being.
--Jerry Falwell, a fundie himself
fundamentalist. Especially Christian and mainly "non-denominational" and "born again" -- that is, "taken Jesus into his/her heart as his/her 'personal savior'" (saved from?!??) -- Usually pejorative -- used as a negative (as entries at this site show). Often used to express frustration with people who are unwilling to actually debate, especially with regards to religion.
It looks like the fundies are back in the news; this time they're trying to bring prayer back in public schools.
