"Why don't Xtians just die already? Seems like they should have by now."

Replace "Xtians" with "Jews" and that person would be hated by all, would be fired if her employer saw that,could well end up on some government watch list, and might be given a good talking-to by Foxman, et al. But with "Xtians," it's all peachy.  It's absolutely astounding how people "can't" see that sort of hatred for what it is. And the fact that such comments are very, very common is really scary as Hell. And it's almost beyond belief how quickly that sort of attitude has risen to prominence. Think of the world of the 1950s, for ex. And think of now -- a mere 60 years later. The power of the media and public education is truly phenomenal.

Well, in the 50s you could have replaced 'Xtians' with 'Catholics' and most people (other than Catholics, of course) wouldn't have batted an eyelash.
