9. I think too many people
began to recognize "Christian" as a code word for religious fanatacism and intolerance and lost interest in this group. The new code word of course is "family" - it sounds so wholesome and harmless, like Ward and June Cleaver. But of course it implies to some of us the same bullshit that "christian" has come to mean and eventually it will turn off most thinking people as well.

I even hate "The Family Circus" although that's probably just because its the lamest cartoon in our local paper now that they axed "Mallard Fillmore".
