I am no more Christophobic than I am Islamaphobic. I don't understand why you think we live in a Christophobic society - it's the dominant religion. Our biggest holidays are Christian (although they pre-date Christianity but that's another thread.) Criticising a religion does not make you afraid of it, dislike those who follow the religion or practice or wish any follows to experience discrimination on their religious beliefs.
For the record I really appreciate your input and you've taught me a new word.
Personally I don't agree with Christening babies etc as I feel it is indoctrinating a child against their will but I know that many people wouldn't agree. I'm not really sure what the options are as the parents have the right to their religious beliefs but children are so impressionable. Having said that I have to accept that my children are also not given a real choice as my husband and I are not religious so we won't be exposing our child (if possible) to religion so potentially I am denying them in that way too?
What does annoy me though is non-religious parents who christen their children to get them into a "better" private school! I grew up in NZ where private schooling is not as common so I was horrified when I first heard this.
