I have noticed a huge trend among internet users who are christian. they are now starting to "come out" about their christianity, and quite frankly, I find it funny that they think they're in danger on the internet. but I want to know why this trend is suddenly occuring. why is it that christians are suddenly deciding that christianity is under fire, when a majority of people on this very planet are christian as well? is it the fact that they are seeing people besides christians on the internet, which makes them feel like a minority?

to clarify, I'm not against christianity, I'm against stupid trends. one that happens to involve christians.

Well certainly in the UK there's been rumblings of Muslim oppression of Christianity and a (frankly disgusting) growing undercurrent of racist ideology that states if you're not with us (us in this case being Christians) then you're obviously batting for the enemy (Muslims). The racially and religiously charged comments by former Archbishops probably isn't helping things when they talk about Christians being an oppressed minority in Britain and groups like the BNP are capitalizing on that and telling people to be obnoxiously in your face about your white Christianness.

Nothing in particular, it's just antagonistic.

They spent their time making the time stamps more inaccurate and moving the report flag to be more obnoxious. Job well done.

why is that?
i don't care if they blame me, my goal was to make them think about it.
aslong that happend. no hard feelings from this side.

and enough christians are not noisy about their religion.
i got nothing against those either. they don't care about me = i don't care about them

Ugh, now you've made me think twice about moving to England.
So, are the Muslims oppressing Christians in the first country to properly convert to christianity?

why is that?


...

One, you bring up the "Atheism vs Theism" debate in that statement, which can easily lead to an argument not on the topic.

Two, you're indirectly saying that Christians can't hold their own in a debate about their own religion, regardless of whether or not they can.

Three, it just sounds arrogant.

Need I go on?

I haven't heard anything about this, so it can't be too severe. Anyone want to elaborate on what this "oppression" looks like?

i havnt read the first 3 pages and didnt have time so sorry if me refering to the first post isnt important anymore.

well i think the difference is the fact that when you support something that christianity (usually) rejects many people think you are against them.

how many christians have called atheists followers of satan even though its so illogical? and how come supporting gay rights means your against "normal families"? thing is, more and more people are being less close minded/religious/supportive of the things christianity rejects and they see it as threatening for some reason.

of course i only say this based on my experiences in the internet.

yes plz.

i don't see why is shouldn't say it of that is what i think is true.

which can easily lead to an argument not on the topic.

that doesn't make the line less valid for the this topic's question.

Sigh. Again. I only said that it was antagonistic. You were asking what he meant, I explained, and you continue to misinterpret.

I never said it was invalid.

That's basically the first warning sign of a radical. When someone else has a different belief and that = bad/against yours, it's not a long walk to hatred/violence/mania.

No......zomg this made me giggle. No! There have just been an influx of Muslims and an increase in Muslims in the UK. For example, Palistani immigrants who moved there after the Partition. It's not oppression from what I heard, but growing enclaves of Muslims.

No UK isn't the first to convert to Christianity, unless you're only narrowly defining Christianity as those of the Protestant denominations....

Message to all, It still isn't bad that people are exclaiming they are christian, just be glad they haven't tried to convert you with anything from here. If they do, RUN FOR THE HILLS.

Unless some other insane monarch switched to Christianity (Protestants) first?

The "oppression" is the sort of thing you'd hear uber-conservative Christian white Americans complain about. Like the building of more mosques in the UK, Islamic schools, there's more people around with 'funny' last names and skin tones not consistent with the pitiful amount of sun we get in the UK - and, in the mind of small-minded bigots, that translates over to "we're being oppressed". The Daily Mail, former archbishops and radical parties like the BNP are pushing this train of thought along too and it's just ridiculous.
