There are those who hate Christianity and call their hatred all-embracing love for all religions. G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
Christianophobia = an irrational animosity towards or hatred of Christians, or Christianity in general. (McMillan Dictionary)
Many Christians believe they have experienced animosity or discrimination because of their faith. Not all Christians are equally likely to be victimized by Christianophobia, but certain kinds of Christians (e.g. here), are much more likely to be attacked, even by political groups who identify themselves as “christian.”
Research on Christianophobia has found patterns of bigotry, hatred, prejudice, stereotyping and dehumanization…..Here, Christianophobia is apparently driving opposition and personal attacks toward Mr. Graham.
Instead of being opposed, the Lancashire Festival of Hope deserves full support for the positive impact the event will have on this community.
