I don't hate Christians but I fear Christian Laws being enacted or that my children will be taught genisis creation over evolution and real science. That's my fear.
Nope - don't hate Christians. I have family members and good friends who consider themselves Christians. If I make any negative comments about Christians, I am talking about the ones who use their religious affiliation to discriminate or control other people's personal lives.

All the time on ATS, when debating the different aspects of Christianity, you will see Christians unhappy with the evidence (true or false) presented begin to accuse any non Christians of hating either Christianity or Christians themselves. This is almost always followed by the posted accused saying that they don't hate Christians they just don't buy it...
So I was wondering how many people on here actually hate Christians??? And how many don't?
Personally, I was raised southern baptist and a big part of my social circle claims ( very few actually practice it in any circles) Christianity. So the thought that I hate my friends and family is just silly.
From my pov, I just think Christians have been brainwashed and lied to, but would never hate some one who hasn't ever wronged me.

Hate is very personal.
I don't hate many people. Less than five.
Aside from the fact that claiming that Christians are "hated" is an easily-recognized rhetorical device, I would say that there is a strain in Christianity from the start that belies a victim mentality ...
Luke 22: 17 "Everyone will hate you because of me." (Jesus)
Matthew 10: 22 "You will be hated by everyone because of me." (Jesus)
John 15:18 "If the world hates you keep in mind that it hated me first." (Jesus)
That's part of the fundamental schtick as it were.
