Do you think that Christian could become a term of abuse in the way that Jew has been in the past?

Could happen here - but probably not in the near future.

Probably already has happened in the middle east.

It is in Muslim countries like Indonesia

I believe it is often misused because people did not fully understand what it means to be a Christian.

I guess in the same way that other groups arre abused.

Jews were consired mean so mean people were abused with the term Jew.

Makes me wonder what negative qualities could be attached to the Christian insult.

For those of you who think it's already here, I don't think so. You'd have to be in the minority for something like that. Jews were scapegoats because there were less of them and they were an easy target. I think it's very possible for this to happen to Christens, just not any time soon unless come major converting is involved.

Christianity is on its way out; Technology is really the new religion these days. I mean look when some one is sick they go to the doctor right? 100 years ago they would have gone to the local priest for prayer. Hmmm come to think of it that was cheaper.....

In many parts of Europe ‘Christian’ is used to mean crazy. It’s used to connote images of puritans beating themselves in penance and/or crusaders going to war over nothing.

I hate when people use the word Jew in that way thats enough for me to get in a fight with someone over. sad but i got in a fist fight and one of the reasons was that

That's wierd to think about. I can't ever imagine myself taking offense if someone called me a Christian. Even if everyone else did, I don't think I could ever take it as an insult.
