The reason Christian are h*m*ph*bic is because it is not natural. And is considered a sin. But we are called this if we bring up the subject. And for what reason?

Guilt, shame and peer pressure is the best tool to get someone to either back off, or conform through fear of ridicule. So where does this type of control come from when one person controls another in this fashion?

It's a form of witchcraft. When one person is controlled by another, and is forced to do things against their will through all the things mentioned above. It's a form of witchcraft. It is more so when you use these things to keep someone from doing what is right, and make them do what is wrong.

But what about the Christianphobics? Are they really against all religion, or only one religion? Let us take the Islamic candidate for U.S. President. Do we hear separation of church and state while this guy tries to run? Do we hear that he may try and turn the nation into a religion through his faith? NO!

And You won't hear it either. Even from the side that he is running on which always makes it a subject if the opposing side has a candidate that is Christian. So by their own admission, they admit who they really are against. And also admit who the real God is. because if all deities were the problem. This Islamic candidate would have run into as much problem as any person who was Christian would have. Just like they did when Bush ran for office, and used his Christian faith.

So will any Athiest speak out against the Islamic Candidate? Or is the A, in front of theist only for one God? One by your actions even admits to who the real God is.

What does God's word have to say about this action, and why it happens like this?

mt 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

lk 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

I too have given some thought as to why atheist and liberals seem to only attack Christianity. My conclusion is Christianity is the only one they view as a relegion. All others they view as cultural. As liberal lexicon mandates all cultures are equal, all other religions are therefore off limits where critisism is concerned.

Furthermore, they don't really view all cultures as equal. In thier view western culture is the root of all evil and as such all other cultures are equal on a plane above it. Christianity is part of western culture and is therefore fair game.

In addition to suffering from Christaphobia, they also suffer from ethnocentricity.

He is Keith Ellison, a Democrat from Minneapolis.

Also, at the recent 2007 Democratic National Committee Winter Meeting they had a Muslim Imam with known ties to radical groups open with a pray to Allah. In his pray he basically asked that Allah help defeat the US, help the US see the error of their ways and to embrace Islam.

I can only imagine what their reaction would be if someone opened by praying in the name of Jesus, asking for his help and guidance for them to see the error of their ways. It would probably be far worse than the hisses and boos they flung at Boy Scouts when they dared to exercise their 1st amendment rights.

A couple of observations:

The reason Christian are h*m*ph*bic is because it is not natural.


IMO anyone, Christian or otherwise, who is h*m*ph*bic is that way because it is natural to feel that way. We (And yes I mean everyone) see difference (S@xual orientation, race, political allegiance, etc) as being a threat at some level. However, it is how you act upon these feelings that is most important, i.e. do you submit to the internal disgust you feel and then persecute those that are different from you, or can you divorce yourself from you feelings and give those that are different from you equality, sympathy, aid, communication?

So will any Athiest speak out against the Islamic Candidate? Or is the A, in front of theist only for one God?


I would speak out against Islamic candidates if it was their platform to change our democratic way of life into a theocracy.
But I assume that an Islamic candidate like any other, takes an oath of office that he will uphold the law of the land, and if elected, would be expected to do so.

I seem to recall that President Kennedy had to defend his catholic religion in much the same manor, i.e. that he would not let his religion influence laws or decisions favouring one group over another.

IMO it’s nothing more complicated than you are in a majority are more vocal and more political, when compared to Islamic equivalents.

Christianity is part of western culture and is therefore fair game.


I think there is some truth to this aspect.

In addition to suffering from Christaphobia, they also suffer from ethnocentricity.


Not sure I understand what you mean here. I presume you are implying some sort of ethnic division amongst Christians that is also the focus of attention by the opposition.

As far as not believing there are any Gods, you would be agnostic if you truly believed that. And like most agnostics, you would not be here, or on other websites debating the issue all the time. Because you would know that debating what you do not believe in, is a waste of time.

It's like waging war against an enemy you say does not exist. Who would you bomb? Who would you have the soldiers fight? Thin air?

This is why I call atheist Christianphobics. For they have no real reason to fight what they don't believe exist, except they have a phobia about God that drives them to do it. And until they get rid of the phobia, they can never become a agnostic.

'Call to Renewal' Keynote Address (Wednesday, June 28, 2006)

"It was because of these newfound understandings that I was finally able to walk down the aisle of Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street in the Southside of Chicago one day and affirm my Christian faith. It came about as a choice, and not an epiphany. I didn't fall out in church. The questions I had didn't magically disappear. But kneeling beneath that cross on the South Side, I felt that I heard God's spirit beckoning me. I submitted myself to His will, and dedicated myself to discovering His truth."

Its not a quip at all, and it is a very real danger.

From a human perspective, you make sure that the citizens are armed. Our founders knew that, and that's why the right to Keep and Bear Arms in specified as an individual right in our constitution.

(my bold)

We agree on this 100%

Arming citizens, only has one consequence, i.e. your opponents will likely do the same.

Aside: Nations do the same, one only has to witness the ‘arms race’. The reason we have a military is specifically because We do not trust our neighbours, its insurance.


But Hitler, Stalin etc did not ‘initially’ get to where they were by direct conflict, they manipulated the existing system, they persuaded people to follow them, they bullied and threatened opposition, key people ‘disappeared’, they became the quintessential 1984 big brother, with out a shot being fired (metaphor)!





From a Divine perspective:

PSA 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.


I’m not sure of the relevance of this quote.

In this case, the oppents of the Citizens, e.g. a standing army and police forces, are already armed, so you would only be somewhat equalizing the playing field. If no one had guns, that would be fine, but we both know its not going to be that way.

As has been pointed out, we are off topic, so I would appreciate it if you would direct further discussion to me via PM, or another thread if you are really interested in understanding what our Founding Fathers felt we as a people should be armed.

You could also argue that the army and the police are made up of those same citizens. It made sense to have a well armed militia made up of ordinary citizens when you had the prospect of the king of England knocking on your front door at any moment. But today the army and the national guard can deploy far quicker than any civilian militia can.

Because they sin. After being told they are sinning, they continue to do so and even celebrate thier sin. The Holy Bible even warns us to watch out for people that behave like this.

No, they do it in the legislature and in the courts and threaten you with financial ruin and/or jail time if you dare to simply disagree with them.

Please note the word disagree... there in nothing phobic or hostile about disagreement but that is what it has now come to mean.

Now before you feign puzzlement over evidence for this, spend a little time doing research. It's all over the place and not that hard to find. I see articles almost every day without even trying. I'll give you a hint to get you started... (pastor, hate-crime, Sweden)
