I would say so. But the reason I suggested that name is:

-Fundamentalist is generally accepted to mean the same as “biblicist”
- Fundamentalist is more well known and understood than “biblicist”

This assumes that *you* mean the same thing by “biblicist” though; the same meaning that is usually understood.

If you mean only that “Bible is fundamental” then it’s really not the same meaning in general usage (which seems a bit odd to me.)

However, if you *don’t* mean biblical literalism, then Fundamentalist would not be a good name - because fundamentalism and literalism are taken as the same in meaning.

And more easily denegrated.

Just pickin' nits ...

My original intent was to disparage the use of 'protestant' when referring to someone that is not Catholic

(ain't gonn'a go there to Jew or Budhist or whatever)
