It's not possible to heap enough scorn and abuse upon the heads of Christians for all the atrocities and idiocies perpetrated by Christians, both historically-speaking, and every day in the world around us. (Full disclosure -- I happen to be a Christian.)
Having said that, the measure of any community's tolerance and openness lies in how its minorities are treated. At Elliquiy, people who openly profess to be Christians, Republicans, or conservatives are in the minority. (I don't know if those kinds of people are actually in the minority or not, but the ones who openly profess to be one of those people are definitely in the minority, I think.) If one of those people feels they've been mistreated or discriminated against, whether they have been or not, it ought to be looked at and taken seriously by other people who care about the community, because that's a direct measure of how tolerant and sensitive the community is to the treatment of its minorities.
So for what it's worth, Brandon, if you're still reading this thread, I'm glad you post to these boards and occasionally voice dissenting views, and I think it's a shame if your religious views are discriminated against around here, in any way. To be frank, I have not read this particular thread closely enough to say whether or not there's been any misbehavior by anyone in this thread, although I have seen a few instances (however rare) of insensitive remarks directed towards certain minorities at Elliquiy.
