"Christian Is Not Synonymous With Conservative"

Share |

 Anybody who believes a genocidal, baby-killer who plans to torture innocent people eternally, simply because they "didn't know" his own son's death by human sacrifice was designed to "save" them from how "evil they are" is not just conservative. That's reactionary, sadistic and necrophiliac. Religion destroys whole civilizations, ESPECIALLY christianity! How anybody with a conscience could call herself a "christian" and, in the same breath, pretend to be "progressive" is such an act of cognitive dissonance as to make a rational person's head pop like a tick!

Who are "the Christians"?
This beguilingly simple question was provoked by a Morning Edition report in which host David Greene referred to an anti-abortion movie, "October Baby", as a "Christian film." Many Christians objected. They didn't identify with the movie or its message.
Roughly 78 percent of Americans are Christian and have a wide variety of views—even on abortion.
"I've been troubled for years that conservative, evangelical Christians have appropriated the name 'Christian' as if Christians holding progressive views don't exist," wrote Theodore Johnson of Basye, VA. "In today's story, the reporter seemed to go along with that fiction by using the word 'Christian' without adding 'conservative' or 'evangelical' or some other words to indicate that these are Christians with one point of view that isn't held by everyone who consider themselves Christians."
