    Do you think we need to use this term "Christianphobes" to counter our culture? Atheist,homosexuals, Muslims etc like to coin "phobe" to push their hate agenda. What say ye?

    Actually the name Christian came about as the result of hate towards Christ and Christianity was originally called "The Way".

    When I hear the word [insert group]ophobe, I think of special interests with an agenda playing a victim card to get their way.

    WIKI Definition:

    Anti-Christian sentiment is an opposition to Christians, the Christian religion, or the practice of Christianity. Christophobia or Christianophobia are also names for "every form of discrimination and intolerance against Christians"
    _______________________________________
    A phobia (from the Greek: φόβος, Phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is, when used in the context of clinical psychology, a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational.

    It is my own personal belief that "Phobia" is not accurately being used in Christophobia.

    There is a difference between discrimination and intolerance. And at times we should insist on intolerance.
    For example, would we be intolerant if we demande someone to stop smoking during a church service?

    True, they seem to be cut from the same cloth.

    I guess your right.....when I hear "homophobic" that sounds just plain stupid to me. No fear in love but perfect love casts out fear.
