1) Who is worse in general and a bigger detriment to society?

2) Who gets upset and attacks and condescends to others outside of their point of view more when their perspective is challenged and disputed by anybody at all?

3) Who tend to annoy you more and come off as more obnoxious?

4) Who tends to get called out on their beliefs more? And who are more hated?

5) Who is more black-and-white or absolutist with their beliefs/ideologies?

6) Which side would you rather be in a country ruled by?

7) What would happen if both groups met each other in real-life? Who would win in a fight?

In light of the current political climate in the United States, I would say the “fundamentalist” is more dangerous. Though I would preface that with a different definition of “fundamentalist”. I would use a word like dominionist or theonomist, meaning a Christian attempting to move government policy in favor of their beliefs. I don’t think a Christian who has strict biblical beliefs (fundamentalist in its purest form) is dangerous.

2) Who gets upset and attacks and condescends to others outside of their point of view more when their perspective is challenged and disputed by anybody at all?



About equally depending on how you approach either group. My personal issue with SJWs (and progressives in general to a lessor extent) is that they tend to pick favorites among aggrieved minorities.

3) Who tend to annoy you more and come off as more obnoxious?



The “fundamentalist”, it’s like an embarrassing family member for me.

4) Who tends to get called out on their beliefs more? And who are more hated?



The “fundamentalist”. Regardless of the definition of the term.

5) Who is more black-and-white or absolutist with their beliefs/ideologies?



See above point on SJWs.

I would argue that the lack of absolutism (or selective absolutism) is a bigger issue for Christians than absolutism itself.

Ultimately I would say neither of them are truly absolutist.

6) Which side would you rather be in a country ruled by?



I could survive in both. I was raised in a religious household. And I could maneuver in a SJW society. Neither would be better or worse.

7) What would happen if both groups met each other in real-life? Who would win in a fight?



Depends on the terms of the fight. A metaphorical battle of influence, the SJWs have an advantage. They could expand ideologically without sacrificing their beliefs. Christianity isn’t as attractive, speaking as one.
