A few months ago I posted a question about the word xtians and was told it wasn't an insult, it was just handy shorthand. So explain this lovely little variation:
There are a lot of things I hate about Christianity but I think referring to them this way is pretty low. Anyone want to defend this?
I realize they are very different. When I first came to the site I thought the use of the word xtian was meant to be insulting but the cute variation is OBVIOUSLY meant to be nothing but insulting. I think this just feeds the notion that atheists are dirty, mean, evil, bad and nasty. No I haven't seen it used a lot. Still, too many times I think.
