Also uniates from Galicia (part of Ukraine which were under Austro-Hungarian rule before WWI, they have kept their Orthodox rituals but consider Roman Pope the head of their church) and several others. All these factions almost hate each other.
    I would point out that the word "fundamentalist" often has negative connotations today, but the word was originally coined by American Protestants who wanted to AVOID fighting and hatred between Christians -- they hoped that believers in Jesus could agree about the "basic fundamentals of Christian theology" (that Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God, that Jesus was physically resurrected after the crucifixion, etc.)...

    ...while "agreeing to disagree" about non-fundamentals (the precise forms of rituals; the exact phrasing of prayers; whether a baptized person must go completely under water or if "sprinkling" water is sufficient; whether women can be pastors; etc.).

    It is easy for Protestants as they consider only the Holy Scripture to be sacred. Catholicism and Orthodoxy consider the Sacred Tradition a necessary part of the religion and that the very Church is the Christ's body. It is an absolutely fundamental norm and thus violating the (particular) Church is an act of blasphemy.

    "Fundamentalists" today mainly means people who deny the tradition and rely on the original sacred texts only, that is come to fundamentals. That's what al-Wahhab have done in Islam and he created islamic fundamentalism. In such a definition all Protestants are Christian fundamentalists.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
