Christianity Derangement Syndrome?

The brilliant and clear-minded Dr Sanity has a posting about the Left and why it hates Christianity so much. As a direct quote from her blog.

A definition of Christianophobia or Christianity Derangement Syndrome (CDS), could be formulated thusly:

"The excacerbation of acute and severe paranoia about the imminent imposition of a Christian theocracy in the U.S.; in an individual already suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome as a reaction to the very existence of (1) the Christian religion; (2) the practitioners of Christianity; and (3) symbols of Christianity anywhere within the culture; while simultaneously completely ignoring and dismissing any threat from the religious fanatics of Islam who repeatedly and clearly have stated that their goal is the imposition of a world-wide Islamic theocracy (or "Caliphate")."

So, as a result of this interesting disorder, here we are in a war with Islamic fundamentalism, and many on the left seem to think that the U.S. is at risk in having a Christian theocracy imposed and that the Bushitler is more dangerous than Bin Laden.

This leads to her blog, but her blog navigates a little differently from most (I have yet to figure out how to link to a specific posting of hers.) Go to the posting entitled CDS - CHRISTIANITY DERANGEMENT SYNDROME.

I have often wondered why the extreme left would support the Moslems in their attempt to build a worldwide Caliphate as it would truly enslave them in the manner that they accuse the Religious Right of wanting to do.

I agree with the commenter that said that their hatred of Christianity might actually be a rejection of their parents. It is also true that their fear of Christianity allows them to be in a state of denial about the real threat to their freedom -- Militant Islam. They know they can never defeat Christianity, but believe Islam can and then, in some magic way, they will defeat or control Islam. They are not thinking about this rationally.

By the way, Dr. Sanity claims to be an agnostic, so this is not just some Christian making noise.

Some sort of an explanation at last! Excellent post, Shoprat, and I do believe you are on to something. There does, after all, have to be some sort of explanation for all this weird behavior, but if this is true, they are really idiots. There is absolutely no reasoning with Muslim Extremists, and if they don't know that, they are so stupid it's beyond belief!

I am a Christian, but I am also afraid of the Christian right. Militant religion is militant religion.

Paula, in my opinion, is what most of the left is afraid of. I have no fear of Christians (I am one) who do not wish to impose their social veiw upon the rest of society. I am concerned about Christians who try to enact laws that limit personal freedom because they are "called on" by God to do so.
