Defining Traditionalism

Finish the sentence: Traditionalism is ….

Here is my attempts (trying to cover quite a few religious traditions and seeing the term as primarily derogative) that are not all serious:

  1. …. a worldview where the perceived defined self-identity of a community is being changed by shifting ways of expressing and interpreting that same self-identity.
  2. …. an attitude defined by ‘new’ bad, ‘old’ good.
  3. …. old people who hanker for the good old days.
  4. …. what the religious leaders did and taught when I was growing up.
  5. …. what I say it is so just leave me alone.
  6. …. for those who cover up their ignorance with a religious reason.

Further, is biblicism and fundamentalism a form of Protestant traditionalism??
