Actually, fundamentalists really arnt that scary, except for the Muslim ones. I can’t think of any christian, hindu, jew, or buddist who would kill for their religion. The fact is, despite what you see in Hollywood, radicals just tend to be creepy, not violent.

(when subsequently challenged over the Crusades:) Ummmmmm, FYI, The Crusades were done by Catholics, not christians. Yes most everybody puts Christians all in one catogory with the catholics, but there is a huge difference. The fact that we use the same religiouse book (sort of) dose not matter.

And neither does spelling or basic knowledge, I see...

So what's so scary about being threatened with death? If I die, I won't be scared, now will I? With Christian fundamentalists, they'll keep trying to impose their will on you, which is worse in my opinion.

And the bottom line is, if you believe Jesus died for your sins, you're a Christian. That's true for Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, Jews for Jesus, etc. It's not really all that hard...

Ummmmmmmm FYI: Catholics ARE IN FACT Christians. They worship the Biblical God and believe that Jesus Christ is their savior, and although they may not believe exactly what you do, they still fall under that category.

And even so, your kind is still responsible for the Witch Trials. You don't kill people for your religion, oh no. You just burn them at the stake. Big difference.

Yet another case of that damn double standard. The crusades were done by Catholics, and in that case they are not Christians. But when you talk statistics -- US is a Christian nation, and Catholics are a large portion of it. Yay.

@Beast: it seems that horrendous spelling is a trademark of most fundies. They are simply not fundie enough without that.

Or you know believe in the same God, and follow Jesus's teachings.

If you're of European heritage, your ancestors were most likely part of the early Christian Church, which we now call the Catholic Church.

Never seen a fundie buddhist...

All fundamentalists are scary. Christian fundamentalists are probably the worst.

5/26/2009 10:40:11 AM

No, Christianity is defined as a religion that believes in Christ. Believe in Christ, and you're a Christian. Catholics believe in Christ. Catholics ARE Christians. Do not expect people to take your interdepartmental squabbles seriously.

Allegory for Jesus

Catholics are not Christian. Except, if that was the case, there were no "Christians" until the Protestant Reformation. Way to make things incomprehensible because of your "no true Christian" mentality.

Dropped out of school a little early, huh?

@ Papabear

V Gard is likely still in school ... picked up and dropped off each day by one of those cute litttle short yellow buses.

As always, careful what you wish for: If Catholics aren't Christians then Christians are a minority religion (behind Muslims, Hindus, and Catholics) and have no reason to make any grandiose claims to "truth by numbers".

You lose.

Translation: "I'm really scary."

Yeah, Charles Manson and Tim McVeigh were just "creepy".

Are Lutherans and Calvinists, Christian?

Yes, you say? Good!

@ explicit_UK

It's also convenient when a christianist gun nut shoots up his former work place and kills multiple people that they can claim, "oh, he wasn't a REAL christian."

It does annoy me that christians are lumped into one in most demographics, there are some major diffences in the beliefs and practices of the various denominations.

This guy is an idiot however, as there are fundamentalists all over the world killing for their beliefs and a simple google search of "religious killings" brings up hundreds of examples of this.

We atheists will decide who's Christian and who's not.
