As per my word, given to a fellow member of the OPP, on my last 'Definitions' post, this week's definition will be the term 'anti-christian'...
"Anti" is defined as "opposed, against", therefore "anti-christian" would be defined as, "being opposed to or against" the beliefs and practices of Christianity.
As with any belief, there are various levels of "anti-christian".
The first level would be, "Thank you for your concern, but, I just don't agree with or accept those beliefs".
Next would be, "I don't accept that, don't ever bring it up to me again".
Then would come, "You keep telling me that what I am doing is wrong and dangerous, therefore you hate me".
I equate this with an incident in Yukon, Oklahoma recently:
A young student stepped off the curb at an intersection to cross the street, he did have a green light. A crossing guard grabbed the student's coat collar and pulled him back to the curb. The student's first thought was probably anger at being stopped from exercising his right to cross the street (my guess, only he knows what he really thought) after all he did have a green light. The rest of the story that he did not see was the speeding car on the cross street going through the intersection against the red light.
The difference between the crossing guard and a Christian, the crossing guard can restrain the student whereas the Christian can only warn of the danger, the "student" has to chose whether or not to believe
the warning and follow the Saviour.
Next: You cannot make business decisions based on your religious beliefs, but you can be forced to act against those beliefs.
Next would be "You cannot express your religious beliefs in public".
The ultimate "anti-christian" is: "The penalty for professing Christianity is death".
The reason main stream Democrats are anti christian: The party of the democrats has been taken over by socialists and communists and one huge tenet of Christianity that is totally 100% opposite from the socialist/communist philosophy is PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
