I picked it because thatís what I was named as a child. I am not one to hide behind aliases, nor am I ashamed of the names roots, that story was written before I was born, nor am I surprised that crustards try and take the p|ss out of it. I have had the name all my life, do you really think you are the first fool to wet yourself laughing.<quoted text>I figured that since it is your "Topix" name that you must have picked it for a reason. If it is your real name... Why would someone use their real name?
<quoted text>In other words you have decided to tream them as you believe that you were treated by them.. Way to rise above the "christian hate".
I see no point nor can I understand why people need to hide behind disguises, if they have not got the bottle to be themselves that thatís their problem. I suppose what we have here is completely different outlooks on life, there is me who as an atheist sees no need to lie about who I am and there is you who does.
Itís not belief, itís fact, there were witnesses to that fact including the vicar who eventually apologised for his and his congregationís treatment of me, I suppose he must have felt some guilt to demean himself to apologise to a 14 year old child.
Itís not the only or the worst occurrence of christian hatred and spite that I have had to endure in my life but it was the one that occurred during my childhood when people learn a considerable amount from experience.
FYI, this does not apply to all christians, I know some nice ones, for example my best friend is the wife of a christian minister, she has a masters degree in theology and is herself very well up in the hierarchy of their church. I have even come across a few genuine christians here on topix, christians who are upset and embarrassed by the antics of there fellow believers. Nope itís just the hate merchants, the liars for their god that I find objectionable.
