There are plenty of businesses that seem to cater only to Christians (i.e. Christian book and music stores), and I wish them well.
As I would hope they would wish Judaica shops and Wiccan shops and Yoga stores well.
Doesnt mean either of us has to shop in the other, if we choose not to. But I have nothing against them making a buck among themselves - goddess bless!
(I should note that there are probably much more fundamentalist and Messianic Christians who shop Judaica than vice versa, but ce la vie!)
And there is a slew of Christian broadcasting stations. They can go there and get a job and espouse their hate with impugnity.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Xtianity

English[edit]
Etymology[edit]
1634,[1] from Christianity, replacing Christ with the abbreviation Xt (from Ancient Greek &#935; (Ch, the letter chi), the first letter of &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962; (Christós,“Christ”)+ t, the last letter of "Christ"). Compare the more common Xmas.

Noun[edit]
Xtianity (uncountable)

Alternative form of Xianity (“abbreviation of Christianity”). &#8195;[quotations &#9660;]
Usage notes[edit]
See also: Xianity#Usage notes
As with Xmas and Xianity, as of the late 20th century this term may be considered informal and potentially disrespectful, though it was traditionally an unobjectionable scribal abbreviation.

References[edit]
^ Oxford English Dictionary, 1884-1928, and First Supplement, 1933

But some of the old time preachers are entertaining!

Locally we have a typically annoying Christian station that competes in frequency with a local NPR. The geographic dividing line is a curve on the larger highway, and a hill on a smaller parallel highway. I often purposely tune into the station when on the highways JUST for the satisfaction and thrill of listening to it be overtaken by the NPR at the curve/hill.

Justice!

No one is consorting anyone/ and the market IS speaking numnuts, that's my point.
You can walk down the street and yell "all fags are going to hell" but don't expect me to hire you to work in my store. Folks would not be happy about it (and my business would suffer) and you would not be reflecting my own values. Not that you have to agree with me on everything but there are limits. No racists. No fag bashers. etc
Do you get it now?
Son, I think that the comparison befits your intelligence. I don't know the actual words of the men in question but I am willing to guess that they were NOT about HATE instead they were about DISAPPROVAL of homosexuality which your type takes as HATE. Why? everyone must say that your ways are good and such minds underscores the need for psychiatric care, in my opinion.

Now although I don't recall your man's words I believe that people took them as HATEFUL- HATE for blacks. What was also important is that the sport in question is predominantly played by BLACKS and lots of money is at stakes for owners and so one could say that there was a level of self-interest in actions taken against your man.

What is the ethnicity of your man? I believe that knowing that would be useful especially in a country like yours but not for Jamaica as WE meaning Christians, Judaists, Muslims, whites, Jews, blacks etc are NOT like unto the mentally challenge children of your soil.

Frijoles---Your private term

HughBe---- How do words come into being, is it with the masses like yourself? NO.

Frijoles----Rest of the world says Jews are Jewish, who follow Judaism

HughBe--- And I say that they are PERFECTLY correct and that JEWS are JEWS even if they don't follow Judaism. It is DECEPTIVE, DISHONEST and in my mind CRIMINAL to equate the Jewish identity to Judaism.

Frijoles---When Websters catches up with you, give us a jangle.

HughBe---- I shall have to STOP and wait. I shall consider it.

I shall leave you with the head start.

Religion is Juda-ism its members are Juda-ists.

Religion is Buddh-ism its members are Buddh-ists

Jews are a FAMILY of people who have descended from a SINGLE man whom God called Israel. They are no more than that in terms of IDENTITY of Jewish IDENTITY.

Any COVENANT relationship that they have with God was made with them ALREADY having that IDENTITY. Now son, I know that it is a nasty habit of yours to TALK and then THINK after but I am telling you this that there is no COURT in ALL the world even in America that would disagree with those self-evident TRUTHS which I have spoken except for in Israel.

How is Israel doing with its spying operations in America?

Are you an agent of the Israeli government?

Outside of you and people like you I know of NO ONE who calls others Xtian and I also of NO ONE who calls herself Xtian. I know many many Christians. Your approach underscores the EVIL plot against Christians.

It can easily be PROVEN that Christians don't call themselves Xtians.

Do this test now. Ask Shamma ,see him on the Allah thread,if he calls himself Xtian and also ask him if he knows of any Christian who calls himself Xtian.

Do so now, Judaist.

The important lesson here (for Huggy) is that the word "Xtian" is recognized by Merriam-Webster as an abbreviation for Christian, contrary to Huggy's childish rants.

He is trying to relabel us Jews as descendants of the Kingdom of Judah (which is true, technically as biblical "israel" was split into 2 territories, and one territory, the north, kind of vaporized after conquest, while the other, the south, is believed by some as to survived in some form)
But what he is really trying to do is de-legitimize the word Jew from Judaism, so he can Christianize the term Jew and/or strictly ethnicize it without any religion. Part of his missionary ideology.
On the other hand, using the term xtian has no stigma or de-legitimize function...
Oh of course. The old "being Jewish has nothing to do with religion" thing.

Otherwise what would he call followers of Judaism?

Cun.----Yes

HughBe--- PROVE it as I know of not even ONE and I am confident that virtually none of them know the "word" Xtian outside of those on forums like this with people like YOU.

HughBe --How many Christians know your Xtians? ANSWER

Cun---Many

HughBe--- You are a COMIC. YOU a Judaist and yet YOU know many such persons and I as A Christian know NOT even ONE.

You are not serious and you are NOT about honesty.

Ask Shamma if he calls himself a Xtian.

Buford was a Christian ask him if he has ever called himself a Xtian

Also ask him if he knows of anyone who does.

Do NOT dodge, Judaist.

4. Tell me the differences in 3.

Eric---You are so dunce the joke went way over your head.
