It's not a simple case of just having an opinion they're intent on forcing their beliefs upon me.

Christian bashing is all I hear here...
Your statement makes me wonder something... Do you let your children watch television? Enough said.
I feel so sorry for your children, what chance do they have of an after-life?
Open your heart, not just your mind. Not all christians are a true example of christianity,
Ask yourself what it is that you are truly scared of!
Imagine a ship of families leaving for happy land, your child; where are they going daddy? you; happy land sweetheart your child; can we go to happy land daddy? you; no sweety your child; why not daddy is it full? you; no theres plenty of room sweety your child; dont we have enough money daddy? you; no sweetheart its free your child; so why cant we just go daddy? you; i guess we are a little late your child; can we catch the next boat daddy? you; there is no next boat sweetheart your child; why are you crying daddy?

I do appreciate some christians believe the bibles less than others and some take the bibles less literal than others.
Rather than generalize, if I want to know what a christian is supposed to believe, I only have to pick up a bible the same as them. I read with a critical mind and don't take the extraordinary claims of men at face value where as some people do which makes them christians.
The only thing that scares me are people that give books to children which clearly state among other disgusting ideas that homosexuals and naughty boys should be stoned to death. Whether or not the individual reader chooses to obey those orders I am not to know, a bit like I don't know if the next muslim I meet will suddenly decide to follow his orders and kill me.

Your very response to my post outright admits that I am correct. You are an extremist.
It is extremism which is the greatest threat to our society.
Where will you draw the line?
What acts of extremism would you not be able to justify if you "hope to be on the extreme side?"
You say you're not a Baptist, or a Methodist, or whatever, but you're naming mainstream Christianity. A Christianity that you yourself have admitted you want nothing to do with.
You call yourself "nondenominational?" Hey buddy? That is the largest grouping of xtian terrorists on the planet.
Nearly every single abortion clinic bomber has been "non-denominational" and ALL of the so-called mega-churches in the US are non-denominational.
Jesus Camp was filmed at a non-denominational evangelical camp.
So don't use the also classic deflectionary of "I'm non-denominational, don't lump me in with the Methodists who lost Christ..." The Methodists don't want you lumped in with them either, so no worries there.
I have a problem with xtians like you who want to see the world turned into some "godly" totalitarian theocratic dictatorship. Again, you will get your "Handmaid's Tale" only after much bloodshed.

It doesn't really matter if you're member of an organized denomination or not, because your own words define you rather clearly, no matter how evasive you are or how much you sugarcoat your attitude, to make it look socially harmless.
"Silencing the heretics";
"Enlisted in the lord's army"
From your post:
"I hope to be on the extreme side as in the "fringe", not mainstream whatsoever."
So even if you nominally aren't a calvinist, you manifest some of the insanities of his version of christianity. The glee of the selfrighteous, when they lightened the fires under 'heretics'. The genocides recommended by 'soldiers of god'.
As you spend most of your time on ATS defending the god-given christian right to be fascist, it's only to be guessed at how far in atrocities you will go.
You are a brilliant example of the need of such threads as this. Your ilk ruled most of Europe some centuries ago, and the only equalent to this period of terror-regime is Hitler's nazi Germany.
We don't want your type back ever again in positions of power, education or whatever.
