    No, but extremist Christianity is tolerated by the mainstream way more than it should be. The average American Christian may not be an extremist, but for all you know his next door neighbor might be. It's similar to how many mainstream Muslims don't support terrorism, but refuse to condemn the radicals directly just because they seem to believe that Muslims have to stick together. In the US, the end result is that radical Christians can get away with way more hate speech and have more political influence than any non-Christian would who spouts the same kind of vitriol. That's whyJerry Falwel got himself a nice little memorial special on CNN - had Jerry been a Muslim spouting the same kind of insanity, no one in the US would have touched him with a 10-foot pole.

    Of course. But it's the 21st century. Most everything is political. Even feeding the hungry.

    What protections? There are no such protections for anyone.

    That was on a discussion about forum rules. Pay no attention to it.

    "Christianity" in theory should not be political. However, what has happened is that the radical right wing has politicized the term "Christian" to advance their far-right wing agenda.
    As a result, there are many of us who are Christian who are now embarassed to be associated with them.
    I am Christian...but not "Christian".
    When people today ask me what religion I am I tell that that I believe in Christ and strive to live a Christ-like life...which today is about as far away from "Christian as there is.

    The argument was that a user's signature violated hate speech rules because it merged the swastika with a cross.

    By the way Catz and Tooth, I am also an ex-evangelical.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Is Christianity - All of Christianity, not just any political movement within it - a political movement?
    Worshiping a Cosmic Jewish Zombie is not political. The people who practice it make it political.
