  •  "Christianist" (4+ / 0-)

    is a term I've seen used for years now, applied to an adherent of the type of socially conservative, politicized Christianity that the American right wing thinks is the only type of Christianity. If you are offended as a thoughtful and sincere Christian, you shouldn't be. It doesn't apply to you.

    I think it's a very good way of distinguishing it from the metaphysical belief system commonly known as Christianity, just as I think "Islamism" is a good way of demarcating the political use of Islam.
