You're probably right. I haven't really studied either. But the point goes which I made elsewhere that when one calls them fundamentalists, one should use the word in scare quotes. Back in their day, the idea that the Bible should be taken literally was not all that crazy, since the tension between religion and science was not that great. Luther started a long learning process that ended with modernity, but he wasn't (fully) modern himself.
