  •  There's a key statement (0+ / 0-)
    discussing how they are being attacked by rightwing Christians and suddenly the progressive Christian tries to make it a discussion about them

    When the issue is attacks on women, GLBT folks, people of other faiths, etc. I think you will generally find that pretty much everybody on this site is on board - and you might well not have a clue who is/isn't a person of religious faith, because it doesn't come up. Who do we boycott? Which legislators do we need to call? What should we write in LTEs?

    I think you will find that progressive Christians don't "suddenly" initiate such discussion until the post (diary or comment) starts applying broad brush statement to all Christians, not just rightwing Christians; and perhaps taking it further to opine that all Christians (or all people of any faith) are delusional and ignorant mouthbreathers bent on creating a theocracy. In such cases it's the critics of religion who changed the subject.

    from a bright young conservative: “I’m watching my first GOP debate…and WE SOUND LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE!!!!”
