I suppose it's no longer acceptable to refer to someone's forename as a Christian name in case it offends somebody.

I fully believe that if one is Christian there is no problem referring to his first names as Christian names. If he is not a christian, whether he be atheist (as i am) jewish , muslim, hindu, sikh , taoist , or whatever , then it is surely inappropriate to refer to his "christian" name. That person is not a christian. I learnt that at secondary school aged 13 when my jewish classmate Terry told me that he did not have a christian name. I understood then aged 13, that my inbuilt "prejudice " was clearly wrong

there is no "good point " here , it is more a question of both utter ignorance and a will and wish to live in a different century.

my earlier question referred to first names. that those from the shallow end of the gene pool might wish to twist it to being a "political" point should surely look to themselves , and not try to scoring "good points" especially when they are "not good points"

they are points of ignorance, compounded by levels of intellect.

it would be interesting to know how many of the professed "christians actually believe in the fundamental tenets of Christianity

and how many just wish to refer to "christian" as a means of saying something akin to White anglo-saxon protestants
