“I would never be a Christian; they’re a bunch of hypocrites.”

A few years ago I received an e-mail from a man living in south London which said (in part),

“I choose not to believe in the incredible hotchpotch of superstition which is Christianity… which is all the more understandable if you come from Northern Ireland, a place where religion has been the excuse for appalling barbarity.”

This man, like so many others with whom I have spoken over the years, claims to have rejected Christianity because of what he perceives to be blatant hypocrisy on the part of Christians, historically and presently—people who “profess what they don’t possess”—who are phony, empty, and hollow to the core.
