So, according to you, Steven, a "phony Christian" is one who wishes injury or death upon another human being, whereas a "real Christian" is one who never has these kinds of thoughts. Is that correct?

Isn't this precisely the type of black/white, right/wrong, one-size-fits-all thinking that atheists criticize in believers?

16 year old Rhode Island High School student, and atheist, Jessica Ahlquist, has won her court case regarding her school posting some type of religious banner. It is not the place of government, local or otherwise to promote religion. Now she is now the victim of harassment and death threats by her "Christian" classmates. I think it important for atheists from around the country to give her our support so she knows that she is not alone. I think she also deserves support from real Christians so they can show these phony Christians what it is supposed to mean to follow the teachings of Christ.
