The left - roughly half of the US population.
Christians - over 80% of the US population.
Since there are plenty of conservatives who are atheists, simple math should tell you that the vast majority of \"the left\" is Christian.
Christians have to be downtrodden Muslims to get any appreciation.

That's a mighty twisted strawman.
\"Hippies\"? How fucking old are you?
3) is just a laugh. When was the last time you heard about atheists as a group complaining about ANYTHING?
Churches have money is a bad thing because of its tax-exempt status.
And just where do get the idea that christians are thought less of then muslims? You are both equally nutty.

Anyway, what the US thinks of as the far-left is regarded as pretty far to the right in most of the free world.

Ranma: My name is ranma, and I'm a failcoholic.
Group: (in unenthusiastic fashion) Hi ranma.

Nothing wrong with equality pal.
5/2/2007 12:20:15 PM
Oh no, we can't have equality! That might interfere with ranma's dream of a bigoted theocracy! Quick, hold up that shiny \"persecution\" mirror! Construct more strawmen! Make baseless links between religion and political affiliation!
Hurry, or we're all DOOMED!

Oh Noes!! There are people who oppose bigotry and oppression. How awful! Kill them!

Anime fans, meet Ranma Half-a-Brain!
5/2/2007 1:37:54 PM
There is still oppression in the US. Same groups as it was fifty years ago? Some, yes, and some, no. Same degree of oppression? Not always, but any is too much and worth fighting against. Does it still feel good to try and help people? Hell yes.

Ranma, go take a cold shower....

4. Christianity is not poor.
Churches have money. and thats a bad thing obviously. Christians have to be downtrodden Muslims to get any appreciation.\"
Have you suddenly become Catholic?
5/2/2007 2:28:09 PM
Since when a law dating to late XVIII century is traditional?, in Europe and the rest of the world it doesn´t exist, incidentally. And besides, wasn´t Jesus the one who said blessed the poor or love thy neighbour?, alternative bizarro Christian religion award?

I'm what you'd call \"left\". I don't hate Christianity. I honestly don't give a fuck about it. It's just another religion.
I dislike asshats that do evil shit in the name of religion. I hate holier-than-thou pricks that think they're better than me because they \"found Jesus\" or whatever the fuck. Douchebags are the only ones I really have anything against. Live and let live, mate.
5/2/2007 3:11:24 PM
Holy shit, could you imagine waking up to the paranoid, deluded world that this guy lives in every day?!
5/2/2007 3:24:22 PM
america doesnt have traditions, just nasty habits
5/2/2007 3:53:33 PM
Wow! Those are some awesome social and political insights! You should be a TV pundit. I'm sure with thinking like that you could easily get a job at Fox News!
5/2/2007 3:54:05 PM
Lots of lefties are Christians dickwad.
5/2/2007 5:23:54 PM
Guess this guy hasn't ever heard of the 'Religious/Christian Left'. It's a shame, really.
5/2/2007 5:37:02 PM
Perhaps we should thow this Ranma back into a Jusenkyo,
5/2/2007 6:03:06 PM
I just love finely reasoned political analysis.

:( True Christianity and capitalism aren't particularly compatible, sweetheart. Seriously.

1)Why do fundies assume that God is spelled G-O-P? 2) Why do fundies hate moderate Christians? 3)Why do fundies call themselves Christians when they always quote Paul? 4)As for #4, I think if there is a God, he will ask a lot of supposed Christians that question! \"As you have done to the least of these so have you to me!\"
5/2/2007 9:09:19 PM
Why do fundies hate America.
1 They hate common American traditions.
Almost any traditional value is bad. And freedom of religion is a traditional value. Freedom of speech is a traditional value. Capitalism is a traditional value.
2They live in lala land where anything can be true.
Because Christianity should be the number 1 religion in the US. Everything else has to be subordinated to it.
3. Many are idiots with an ignorant and proud of it mentality.
They feel the need to make everyone as stupid as they are to make then feel worthwhile. So they creat imaginary facts. They feel because Christianity is the number 1 religion, their made up shit should be better than actual facts. Right now they feel their fairy tale is being opressed, so they made the government force schools to teach their malarky with government money that comes from our tax money.
4. America is not fundie.
America still has some freedom and thats a bad thing obviously. America has to be a christian dictatorship to be any good.

Most liberals I know are Christian. I even know a conservative kid who was agnostic.
