Son, I want you to STUDY my words below and get the BRIGHTEST of your religion to contemplate them as they are challenging words for your intellect among other things.

Before you all read them let me say something which everybody in the world knows i.e. a JEW can be a Christian. Christian is RELIGION whereas Jew has to do with family lineage.

Christianity was started by JEWS and so this in itself should tell THAT fool something contrary to the LIES and DECEPTION that is promoted over that side of the Jordan.

Oh your substitution recommendation was actually BS as it does not apply to my post below.

Do CHRISTIANS call themselves Xtians? ANSWER.

How many Christians know your Xtians? ANSWER

I am CERTAIN that the "word" was NOT coined by any Christians. I am confident that it MUST be from those who are HOSTILE to Christians.

There are over 2 BILLION Christians and I can tell you that NOT a SINGLE one of them call himself or herself a Xtian.

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.
In fairness, the definition does mention, despite the words heritage, that it could be considered offensive. Terms and usage is not always black and white. Look at the N word for black people.

However the homophobic but gay islander with the extreme tan deserves a good tongue lashing.

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.
not impressed with a sample size of 2, of which one already has a private vocabulary and yet is still convinced that he does not.

Come now, I never use the word regularly here. And the "MY PEOPLE" betrays your extreme prejudice.(And is COR a member of my people?)
I probably SHOULD start using the word - just for you - considering you hate gay people.
FUNGUS when will the LIES and DECEPTION end? Why do you reply on LIES and DECEPTION?

Your nastiness of "Outside of ME AND MY PEOPLE?" should indeed be puzzling to even THAT CRUFF as I said no such thing.

My words to that spawn REMAINS----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 stand by those words, spawn, and they mean something TOTALLY different than what you are implying in your FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION.

Just as the haters have a right to espouse their beliefs, so do the Gays. And Gays have substantial buying power right now. They have more disposable funds than probably any other group. HGTV made a business decision, as did the NBA.
For a while, CT was enjoying a mini economic boom performing gay marriage to NYers and others. With the ceremony came the party. And since many of these couples had been together for a while, and were financially well off, they skipped the exotic honeymoon and spent copious amounts of cash locally. I think it has waned a bit now that NY and others have caught up.

People who want to be offended because of their persecution complex will always find a way to be offended.

The Xtian guy from sarcasticxtian ( http://sarcasticxtian.com/about/ ) sums it up nicely...

Why the name?

Why “Sarcastic Xtian”? Well, you need a name, and catchy or provocative names are a bit more memorable than “Scott’s Blog”. As for the “sarcastic” part, I covered that in an early post.

As far as “Xtian” as opposed to “Christian”… This one is kind of funny to me. I’ve heard people say “Writing ‘Xmas’ is trying to eliminate Christ from Christmas”. I’ve heard similar comments about “Xtian”. This strikes me as incredibly fearful – not to mention ignorant of history. I don’t think there is anyone alive today that doesn’t know Xmas is an abbreviation for Christmas, which contains the word “Christ”. But this is not a new movement to hide Christ. This abbreviation has been around a very long time.

The labarum, often called the Chi-Rho, is a Christian symbol representing Christ. It is a symbol comprised of our letters X and P, which in Greek are the first two letters of “Christ”. This symbol has been around, and directly representative of Christ, since at least the 4th century. There have also been numerous versions of ichthys symbols since the first century – all representing Jesus. Ichthys is Greek for fish, but in their alphabet looks like ‘&#921;&#935;&#920 ;&#933;&#931;’. It is an acrostic for “Jesus Christ, God’s son, savior” and writing it or one of its representative symbols has always identified someone as Christian. It was often shortened to simply ‘X’, as the X was the letter in the ichthys that represented Christ’s name, and the letter is also reminiscent of a cross.

Xtian (and Xian) are widely accepted as shorthand for Christian. I chose the former because Xian is a city in China and has other uses. Xtian seems to be less cluttered in its understood uses.

The short version is this: if you want to be offended, you will likely find a way. But in these days of texting and Twittering, abbreviations are making a comeback. It’s just the way it’s done. So, if LOL and BRB don’t offend you, then you should be just fine with xmas, xtian

Truth NEVER impresses people like YOU. Do as you are told, I would make it a sample of 3 on this FORUM and NOT 2. So it would be 3 out of 3.

In your country of well over 300 MILLION persons YOU have debated and supported a sample size of under 50 to speak for the ENTIRE country. Now you have a problem with my survey and note I know THOUSANDS of Christians and NOT one calls himself Xtian.

Shamma and Buford would also know many based on church, family, work, school etc and so the sample size would not even be 3 but THOUSANDS.

Did YOU understand the questions ?

Get someone to explain them to you, Judaist.

Ask Shamma if he calls himself a Xtian.

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

I have also said ask them if they know of any Christian who calls himself Xtian.

Now get behind me Judaist.
