On reading a post in the blog "Debunking Christianity", authored by a former Christian named John Loftus who is now an atheist, I was struck by the fact that, except for a few changes of wording here and there, the entry could have been posted in a fundamentalist blog. It illustrates the point that I've seen time and time again, that a lot of former Christians-turned-atheist have changed teams without changing a lot of their assumptions about the nature of Christianity. It's the same fundamentalist mindset--just the team has changed.
For example, Loftus writes in his blog that "liberal Christians"
should just acknowledge that and admit they have cut themselves off from any historic understanding of what defines a ChristianI always find it interesting when atheists claim the right to decide who is and is not a Christian.
