I am not offended by "Xian" . I think it is a deliberate sign of disrespect on your part so I point it out. You are very selective in your disrespect for religious groups. I find that funny.evilconempire wrote: ↑Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:05 amWay too many people looking to offended by silly things like cotton and "Xian."

the centerpiece contained cotton stalks.
apparently, that's offensive to people who have never picked cotton. as if all cotton pickers were former slaves.
The president of Lipscomb University invited African American students over to his Nashville home for dinner Friday, where he had cotton stalks as centerpieces. After the students deemed the tableware offensive, he issued an apology.
President L. Randolph Lowry, who is white, invited black students to his home for dinner to discuss their experiences at Lipscomb, according to a Facebook post. The students noticed his dinner table was laden with cotton stalks, which offended them, according to the post. Lowry apologized through a campus-wide email.
"As we arrived to the president's home and proceeded to go in we seen cotton as the center pieces," a student identified as Nakayla Yvonne wrote under a picture she took of the centerpiece on Instagram. "We also stood and ate dinner, there were no seats to sit in and it felt very uncomfortable.
now that seems a bit strange.
"We were very offended, and also the meals that were provided resembled many "black meals" they had mac n cheese, collard greens, corn bread etc. The night before Latinos also had dinner at his house and they had tacos. They also DIDN'T have the center piece that we HAD tonight."
that kind of meal is now, offensive?
I would have liked the previous meal very much, also.
I like that kind of food very much!
"I think..." You don't think at all. I've already told you that it's just shorthand, but please do pretend to know my intentions. It's funny to watch you be so wrong.
Not selective at all. That's just your bias preventing you from having a clear perspective.
yeah, lol!!! you use shorthand so much!!!!
that's great comedy, I tell you!
I personally, find it offensive when people use the term Xtian / xtian. I forgive them for their ignorance but it's not likely that they're going to start typing Christian. so, I looked up some of the reasons people do type xtian(s).
here are some of the "results"
abbreviated form of Christian, often used as a derogatory term by Satanists, militant Atheists, etc. It is derived from the use of X as an abbreviation for Christ, as in Xmas. Strictly speaking, this rule dictates it be spelled "xian," but it is spelled "xtian" to avoid confusion with the city of Xian,China.
Satanist(online): "Modern society has such a disregard for the living world. I blame the xtian scum!"
Term used by irrational atheists/wiccans/pantheists to refer to Christians. It comes from the Greek name for Christ, Xristos. Normally used by the most aggressive and militant of anti-Christians.
Dumbass: "Y0u XtiAns are all braInWAShed! i aM SMArt !11 herp derp!"
A word that atheists use because for some reason they think it's supposed to insult Christians.
You stupid xtians need to realize that the Church of Virus is the only true church.

people who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ, but have a pattern of behavior that is contradictory to the teachings of Christ.
a christian in name only.
a religious person who lacks empathy.
a religious person who is not to be trusted.
Unlike the rest of her gossiping xtian coworkers, Sarah didn't think that yelling racist insults at a Trump rally was what Jesus would do.
