Why does it only have to be about Christians?

It seems that some or others need to say something negative about Chrisitans. Why be so concern about the Christians. Is it because they are suppost to be like Jesus Christ or is it the name Christians?

  • I think a lot of it has to do with either some sort of negative experience in the Christian religion, or some sort of hateful or unChristianlike behaviour exhibited towards people from Christians - I'm not saying ALL Christians do this, as I am one and know better, lol, but it does happen.
    And I do see other religions/beliefs get bashed, quite frequently, actually... Just not so much in the Q&A, but in other places.

  • I think people have problems with others telling them their belief is "wrong" or that they are "going to hell" for their beliefs. I think that is more the problem then anything else. It's more about tolerance and respect for one's religion rather than if you are Christian or non-Christian.

  • For me it's neither. Everything (essentially) that I will say that negative about CHristians/Christianity is based on my personal experience or on my desire for those of differing views & beliefs to not be oppressed in anyway due to the "majority" status of that religion. I think if more Christians were in touch with Christ (and everything he's supposed to be about) the whole world would probably be a much better place. In my experience, (some) Christians have simply proven to be more vocal & imposing than most other groups and that colors my view of them, & fair or not, that's the truth.

  • Because Christians are more tolerant than other religions.

    You see one bad remark from a misguided Christian and all of the sudden Christians are the most horrible women in the world. You see a bad remark towards a Christian and is understandable.

    Christains are expected to act better and are under a microscope.

  • I agree with dragonfly....I think it has a lot to do with the Christian belief that they need to spread their religion to others and that they need to let people know they're going to hell. I am an atheist, so technically, I think Pagan, Jews, Muslims, etc. are just as wrong about the existence of a god or gods....but I have more RESPECT for people who don't feel the need to spread their religion.

  • Actually, it's neither. It's the BEHAVIOR of christians. No other group prosleytizes so violently. Is the light never going to go on?
