  •  The confusion has to do (none)
    with the co-opted of the term "Christian" by right wing fundamentalists who see themselves as the followers of the only true religion.

    And that mainstream church Christians and Catholics aren't true Christians.

    However, I personally get a little irritated when "Christians" of any stripe get all excited about persecution....and "hate" directed at "Christians" when they know damn well that most of this comes out the abject failure of mainstream and liberal Christians to reject the stealing of the term "Christian" by theocrats and followers of authoritarian religion.

    This is problems which Christians have to deal with.....and attacking people you assume to be atheists when they are only using the language of the literalists is disengenious.

    •  You know, (none)
      I think I have to agree with you.  I hope you do not think that you were being "attacked".  Just engaging in an exchange of ideas.
