"The Five Classic Statements of Fundamentalism"

One of my frequent visitors, Public Theologian, left an interesting comment yesterday.
"all kinds of people on the right bristle if you call them a fundamentalist, even though they hold to the five classic statements of fundamentalism and even though they would vote the same way as fundamentalists 98 times out of a 100. They want to be called evangleicals so as to distinguish themselves from the Bob Joneses of this world."
I asked Public Theologian what those five classic statements of fundamentalism were and here was his response:
1) inerrancy of scripture
2) virgin birth/deity of Christ
3) substitutionary atonement
4)bodily resurrection
5)bodily second coming


I am still mulling through this. I'd love to get my readers thoughts on Public Theologian's assertion.
