14. I don't think you intended it that way..

there is always a but, however, but when you say they don't worship a deity, then that makes them atheist by definition. Again it's protecting Christianity's reputation calling those you don't agree with not really Christian.

The Intensity of belief in God is what you may be alluding to. I don't know, are you trying to say that they don't believe in God as intensely in private as they do in public?

If so I agree, in some cases (some of them do appear to be as genuinely bat shit crazy as the followers), however we must regard them Christian, as they profess to be, until evidence of their unbelief is presented.

If I was feeling insulted, it is war weariness. I groan under the weight of catapulted "No True Scotsmen"
