I cannot remember the quotation accurately and so I apologise: but among us there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free , nor male or female........
So some of the observations and insinuations which appear to stem from them appear to originate from something other than an Orthodox mindset, me thinks. And what is wrong with people being male or white? Did not God make them so? And define fundamentalist? This appears to be an easy and perjorative 'label' much bandied around but often both unhelpful and uninformative.
I suspect St Seraphim of Sarov would be considered by the majority of people in the western world today as a fundamentalist among fundamentalists, and so would many of the other monastic elders we commerate in our calendar today.
Or is a fundamentalist one whose commitment is anything greater than a luke warm adherence to a belief system, something greater than a joining the Sunday (Saturday) (Friday) parade of 'worshippers'. Total commitment. But again is not following Christ a total commitment?
I abhor the word and feel it belongs not at all in the mouths of Christians. Extremists, Bigots, Fanatics, etc., etc, may describe something but the term fundamentalist has become so loosely defined, if at all, and indescriminately used it is useless except at a perjorative label and/or as a reductionist one, thus absenting the user having to offer reasons why he or she believes differently. In other words in belongs in the world of spin and propaganda, activities incompatible with Christianity, surely?
