OK, so the Urban Dictionary is pretty good for us "old timers" to get a grasp on the latest lingo and slang out there. But when it comes to more standard terms and words, it fails completely. PZ Myers mentioned it in regards to the term "atheist" today, so I thought I'd go check it out. He's right -- almost all of the "definitions" are idiotic insults hurled by ignorant religionists.
One thing I noticed while laughing my way through the first couple pages of "atheist" definitions was the links to other terms that were related: Christian, Muslim, Jew, etc. So just for curiosity's sake, I clicked of "Muslim" first. Wow -- what an even worse display of ignorance, prejudice and hatred! Calling all Muslims terrorists, claiming that Muslims are all fantatics and intent on destroying Christianity. Misrepresenting sections of the Koran. Pages and pages of this stuff. It's horridly absurd and would be laughable if this wasn't the attitude of many Christians I know.
So then I clicked over on the "Christian" definition, just to see if the same level of bigotry, hatred and vehemence was shown there. Nope, not a chance. Christians are all fluffy bunnies and rainbows, if you were to believe that site. Hardly a single negative about the whole thing, and the whole lot of them whining about persecution and misunderstanding by the rest of the world! Oh, my -- you're only 75% of the US population, how sad for you to be in such a tiny minority! Sheesh! The arrogant hubris was so thick, I almost choked before I could hit the "back" button.
I'm sick of hearing how downtrodden and stripped of rights those poor Christians are. I'm so sorry that you've lost some of your unconstitutional privileges that you've enjoyed and lorded over the rest of us for decades. I'm almost (but not really) sympathetic to the travails and hardships of the majority now that you can't beat down the minority as easily. I know how hard it must be to swallow the fact that putting your "god" on our money and in our Pledge of Allegiance has been challenged as illegal in the courts. It must be so difficult for you, having all that tax-exempt land overflowing with massive, overly ornate places for you to go prostrate yourself before your chosen mythos.
