It seems to be atheists mostly that can't stand overly religious people who "think they're perfect." You know, boasting about how they don't do this or that, they live their life according to the Bible, they think this and that are wrong etc. I notice atheists seem to bash these type of people, but when it's someone who doesn't act like that, and is a Christian you say smart comments like "Aren't you suppose to be like Christ?" "You're not a true Christian." So, what's the deal? Do you just try to find anything wrong with the religion? It seems like you're never pleased no matter what. Just something I've noticed on cafemom. Not a "true christian?" That's like saying you're not a "true atheist."Answer Question

Christians are always criticising our lifestyle choices. Trying to scare us with the idea of hell because we don't live up to their biblical standards. The irony is that these browbeating Christians don't live up to that standard either.

I consider it a judgment; because declaring something is a sin is judging it as such even if you are talking only about the "sin" & not the person. I don't personally have much issue with that when it comes to things deemed sins that I believe are wrong such as murder or stealing. But, there are thing professed to be sins that I don't find wrong in the least such as homosexuality & "worshipping other Gods"; and there really is no way in my opinion to seperate the judgment from the declarationof something being sinnful when you are someone that doesn't follow the same assesment of what a sin is.

Plenty of Christians are hypocrites, and plenty of so-called "atheists aren't true atheists (they just hate Christianity).
That's the way it is. People are always going to find some way to argue. Human nature.
I refuse to get worked up over it.
