You are back on this again?More information, from Christian sources, that illustrate the problem.
Does Christianity Have an Image Problem?
" Broadly speaking, outsiders are hostile toward Christianity because of its perceived "swagger," our sense of self-importance, even arrogance: "We have become famous for what we oppose, rather than who we are for." More specifically, the negative image centers on the following six themes:
We are hypocritical, with a morally superior attitude.
We are too focused on getting converts.
We are anti-homosexual, with bigoted and intolerant attitudes toward gays and lesbians.
We are sheltered and isolated, out of touch with the rest of the world.
We are too political, in that our views too often reflect conservative ideology and the right wing.
We are judgmental, lacking in love, and too quick to condemn."
Christianity's Image Problem
" If Jesus' public relations committee were working for anyone else, they'd have been fired long ago. Anyone else with such a bad image problem would disappear. The campaign would be over, the bus tour cancelled, the public appearances would stop."
'My Confession' Campaign Aims to Reverse Christianity's Bad Image
"A group that seeks to reverse the bad image of Christianity in America launched a new campaign Tuesday that encourages Christians to publicly confess their shortcomings by leaving notes in public places and reporting them on a website.
The My Confession campaign, organized by Changing the Face of Christianity, Inc., hopes to get Christians to acknowledge problems such as hidden hypocrisy, intolerance and homophobia – failings that give the faith a bad name."
Just about everything mentioned in the sites provided above, and previously, echo what atheists and the others that frequent here non theists, agnostics etc...commonly referred to as "Trolls" have been saying from the beginning.
Christians recognize and say it too.
It isn't just atheists and non theists that speak out and confront the issue.
It isn't trolling to point that out.
But still won't answer 2 simple questions
You want to pretend you aren't stereotyping. But you can't even bring yourself to say any group will have people that do bad things and thus be considered "tainted" or admit if an individual negative action can taint an entire group then individual positive actions should make it look better
If you were capable of being honest you would have to concede it goes both ways and there are a lot of people within the faith doing good and making Christianity look good
But that doesn't serve your purpose.
You want to only focus on the negative and only focus on one group even though it applies to every group. Why do you not spend time giving credit for all the good that is done?
Yeah I would say coming here and refusing to answer any question that doesn't further your goal to slam Christianity is pretty much trolling. You enter exchanges under false pretenses. And refuse to even verbalize anything that can't be used as an insult
There are several hundred million Christians in the U.S. alone. The good far outweighs the bad. But people don't find the good interesting. It is why the news always focuses on negative things way more than positive. People like negative. They like to feel superior. They like to judge and tell themselves how they are so much better. They don't want to talk about all the good being done because how does that help their ego?
