    I believe the rather harsh comparisons demonstrate the unrealistic views applied to and from the antagonists on each side of the issues of religions being used as a political tool (weapon).

    Well, except for the horde of Political Hotwire Liberals, who pretty much go out of their way to match the description of "Christophobes" as explained in the article....several times a day.

    A Bad Case of Christophobia

    By John Steinreich


    Among those phenomena most dreaded in liberal-progressive orthodoxy is "Islamophobia." Because the left continues to shape the boundaries of public discourse, any question regarding Islamic doctrine or the conduct of Muslims that might suggest that Islam is not a religion of peace is routinely labeled as Islamophobic. Despite voluminous evidence supporting a rational interpretation of Islam as a warrior ideology with a religious veneer, concerned non-Muslims are slandered as irrational xenophobes by the media, Hollywood, and academia. As these cultural grandees ignore the medieval brutality of ISIS; the screams of "Allahu akbar" by jihadists at places like Fort Hood, San Bernardino, and Orlando; and the anti-Western provocations of imams and mullahs around the globe, they show themselves to be engaged in a toxic romance with anything Islamic.

    While leftists have a slobbering love affair with Islam "Islamophilia," we might call it they concurrently suffer from a raving hysteria of what could be termed "Christophobia."

    The left smears those concerned about the dangers of Islam as "Islamophobes" a moniker that essentially accuses the latter of mental instability. The right can quite adequately counter-argue that the term "Christophobia" should be assigned to the radical elements of the left-wing polity as a diagnosis of the way they regularly lose their minds over anything in the public square resembling America's Christian heritage.
    What is stopping Christians from re-embracing their own old warrior ideology?


    The Russians sure seem to have done that by now

    lol

    Priest blessing troops on board carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov", on way to Syria


    Priest blessing Russian fighter jets at an air base in Crimea


    High-ranking cleric, regional bishop, I believe, blesses jets which later went to participate in missions in Syria


    Russian soldier kisses a cross as a priest blesses him


    Elderly priest prepares young Paratroopers (fresh recruits, just graduated from the Academy) for a mess service as part of their initiation ceremony


    Same for other Orthodox Christian nations in former USSR.

    Georgia


    Ukraine


    Ukraine Donbass separatists

    Separatist leader Aleksandr Zakharchenko kisses a high ranking priest during a ceremony.

    Ukrainian priests have gone to front lines in Donbass and posed with weapons, to encourage their side: https://www.facenews.ua/images/doc/4...a7--------.jpg

    Meanwhile, on separatist side, a number of priests, local and from Russia, are known to have actually joined in combat: http://nashaplaneta.su/_bl/642/97112464.jpg

    Big misconception, it is, that Christianity is less of a warrior faith than Islam. In the West, perhaps...

    Hmmmmm.

    So, you are claiming that Atheism has consistently been "peaceful" and "in the classroom...?"

    Then, how do you explain THIS:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dechri...nch_Revolution

    Or, any of THESE examples???

    But, he loves you....

    From that link:

    Come on, they need to be scared to be good people.
    http://politicalhotwire.com/philosop...ml#post5024534

    From the link:

    As a religious person, I am not threatened by a secular government, because I have no wish to force my religion on anyone. American conservative Xians, however, do wish to shove their religion down everyone else's throats (including liberal Xians, btw), and therefore are threatened by the prospect of a secular government.
    (NOT that I, and several others have asked Ian Jeffery to NOT use the term "xian" as we contend it is a slur. But, he doesn't give a fuck, and continues using it anyways, even as he goes on to accuse Conservative Christians of FORCING our views on everyone else, at all junctures....)

    Is Islam The Most Dangerous Religion And Why

    From the link:

    AND SO IS CHRISTIANITY--DANGEROUS. WE have been 'dealing' with ISLAM, almost all OFF OUR SHORES for 3 decades. Millions and millions have 'dealt with' and DIED under christianity for MILLENIA.

    Don't be such an arrogant IGNORANT ass.

    PS Hitchens was an avowed ATHEIST.
    Is Islam The Most Dangerous Religion And Why

    From the Link:

    Sure it's political. Look at the source of your videos. Xians have been killing and wallowing in ignorance for 2000 years. There are Xian terrorists, they are trying to take over government...and probably will now that The Jackass is in office. What percentage of America is Xian? As for Sharia Law, just read your bible. That book spells it all out.

    Of course, I understand that I have wasted my time with these links, as you already know this, and still refuse to acknowledge any of this as "Christophobic" behavior. Even as you use LESSER examples to call people Islamophobic, Dominionist, Theocrat, Homophobic, etc."

    You mean the French people rising up, and breaking the hold that the aristocracy had over the people, using the church to fund it? Yeah, I don't really see that as violent atheism, so much as the revolt of the people against a monarchy that had stopped representing its people, and a repressive church.

    As to the "State Atheism". That's rather different. In the case of Russia communism, that wasn't atheism organically growing into a secular government like Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and other places, today. Rather it was Marxists - specifically Stalin - demanding that "good communists" denounce their religions in the name of their ideologies. In other words, it was political, and ideological, not theological. And we all see from history how well that worked out.

    You're right. You DID waste your time. I was just expecting to see references to examples true Christophobia, such as the defacing of and property damage to, Christian churches, with clear messages that they were indeed targeted precisely because they were Christian churches; or the violent assault on individuals or groups of Christians, again with the clear message that they were targeted precisely because they were Christian. Instead, you provide examples of people either pointing out the darker chapters of the history of Christianity (which are true, BTW) or expressing reasonable objections to the unreasonable push to shove Christianity down the throats of unwilling believers. I guess objecting to that is "Christophobia."
