When I was an independent Baptist pastor, I was a very militant, belligerent, fighting fundamentalist. Later, I learned that the spirit of the fighting fundamentalist originated not with my then-heroes J. Frank Norris and J. R. Graves, but with unloving, hateful men like Martin Luther. I asked God to forgive me for having such a bad spirit and prayed that He would make me the most loving Christian that I can be. I am still growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ and have a long ways to go in becoming more Christ-like, but I at least have this as my life's goal. Fighting fundamentalism is Satanic in nature.
