The further one moves away from the mean level of concept definition the less claim one can lay to being within the ballpark of accuracy. Here is the tale of the Christian preacher who also claimed that she was a full-fledged Muslim at the same time.

She does both, she says, because she's Christian and Muslim.
Redding, who until recently was director of faith formation at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, has been a priest for more than 20 years. Now she's ready to tell people that, for the last 15 months, she's also been a Muslim — drawn to the faith after an introduction to Islamic prayers left her profoundly moved.
Her announcement has provoked surprise and bewilderment in many, raising an obvious question: How can someone be both a Christian and a Muslim?
ABB is in her territory of crafting his own definitions. People upthread claim that anyone who claims to be something is that something. So if I claim that I am a tree, then everyone must accept me as a tree. That's a purposely extreme example, but so is ABBs case. He manages to reconcile the existence of Christian Atheists, you know people who believe in god and reject his existence at the same time.
Being a Christian Muslim, being a Christian Atheist, me being a tree, are all claims that are divorced from reality.
