Now there is Islamophobia, so wondering especially in light of all the hatred for Christians and ridicule of Christians, including here on HubPages, if there should be a new "phobic" called Christianphobic? Of course, then the "hate speech" rule would have to apply to this phobia as well as all the others.
Did you ever think that threads like these might be one of the reasons that there is such animosity?
Secondly... no one is really scared of Christianity... they just don't agree with the ideas.
Thirdly... you really need to rethink your definition of hate speech. Having someone disagree with your chosen philosophy isn't quite the same thing as having someone say you should be lynched. It's insulting to minorities that truly are oppressed and threatened.
Oh no no no! ONLY liberal activists are allowed to coin new words and re-write things like dictionaries, Constitutions, and Bibles. Surely you can see that. Why, one of the "experts" in that field already jumped on your post. So you better straighten up and fly right....errrr I mean LEFT...if you don't wanna be accused of bein' a troublemaker by a flurry of liberals and atheists. Especially, don't ever use the "hate speech" term in a truthful way again! 'Cause most libs don't tolerate any backtalk, even if it makes total common sense.
P.S. Dubuquedogtrainer, you rock; love your fearless approach
They shouldn't have to even consider that project. If libs hadn't tried twisting the meaning of the Bible, there'd be no need to try to correct THEIR manipulations. But then, America shouldn't be having to consider laws against baby-killing and laws to defend heterosexuality and laws to protect school children from immoral teachings either. Yet, strangely, we do.
So - is there some rule against pointing out how ridiculous most Christian's beliefs are? Your bible tells you this will happen. Paraphrased:
1. Go around spouting irrational nonsense and scare mongering. 2. People will tell you you are spouting nonsense and scare mongering. 3. You can call this being "persecuted," and "attacked for loving Jesus." 4. Prophecy fulfilled - the majik book was right and your beliefs are validated.
(Have to say I don't need a majik book to prophecy this.)
Will my knee bow to Jesus when he returns? Does this not class as "hate speech."
In any case - you are mistaken. We love you so much, we want you to see the irrationality of your beliefs and come join the rest of us in reality. We love the believer and hate the irrational beliefs.
Just think about that for a moment and you will feel the love. Admittedly a tough sort of love - but it is for your own good.
Jesus told us that people will hate us and we will suffer. We need to keep strong, persevere and remember who is ultimately in control. Fellowship with other believers, read your Bible and PRAY! God rewards those who stay faithful.
I find it curious that you attempt to begin a discussion with a misused term. A gentle attempt to explain this to you is perceived as 'picking a fight'. I go to the trouble of posting the definition of the word, to help you understand that you have misused it, and you claim that arttempt defines me as having a phobia.
I'd say I had to go to bed too, if I were you. Your entire presence in this thread, from the outset, displays a phobia of reason.
One last thought. I think you mislabeled this as a discussion. It doesn't really fit the definition as well as some other words might. This thread was not started in order to exchange ideas, or debate.
Division, division, division. The header of this forum demonstrates something I already accept. Try as you might, for God or against...you still do his will. Jesus said, "I come, not to bring peace, but DIVISION!"
Given the unrelenting, hugely funded campaign by so-called Christians to deprive groups of citizens of their rights and impose their so-called morals (read: judgment and hate) on others, I think it is appropriate to use the term Christianophobic. Hadn't thought about it in quite that way until just now.
To be clear:
I am not afraid of Christ or Christ's teachings. I am very afraid -- with increasingly valid reason -- of the harm some men and women will do in His name.
P.S. I do realize that a phobia is more than fear, it's an intense, irrational fear. In this instance, my fear is directly proportional to the intensely irrational views expressed by these so-called Christians. Their militance = my phobia.
Fear is present, but it's nothing compared to how perplexed I am with some of this stuff. Where do American Christians get off with this martyr-complex? If there's one place on this planet that people can be as Christian as they want, its the USA
How about nonorthodoxophobia. The irrational fear that Evangelical Christians have of others who don't agree with their man made doctrines. This fear causes the afflicted to dismiss any alternative interpretations out of hand, and to use phrases such as "In the last days there will be false prophets, a great apostasy, and people following doctrines of demons" to describe any Christian who dares to veer from the official party line.
We all have phobias without exceptions, but the question is, how do we generate them? Some people are afraid of spiders (Arachnophobia) but others don't, some are afraid of funny things like fear of number 13...
Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other...
On Facebook I know of at least two profiles where the people running them have offended some Pagans by comments they have made from a Christian viewpoint and links they have posted. I have seen this sort of problem...
I keep hearing that the lack of religion is what is wrong with this country. Tell me what good has come from the christian religion here in America. What advancement in our society is a direct benefit of christianity?
I once heard a quote, which I really like."You can lead an atheist to the truth, but you can't make him/her believe".Christianity has always been a matter of the heart, and not the intellect, though, falsely...
