Seven No True Scotsmen Fallacies

Despite what you may have read, there is such a thing as a non-fundamentalist, non-literalist Christian (#2, #7). Also, you can be liberal and Christian at the same time (#3, #4). You can be tolerant and also Christian (#1, #3, #5). You can disregard the entirety of Leviticus and still be Christian (#3, seriously now).

And - it's appalling that I have to point this out - you can be simultaneously black and Christian (#6 - wtf).

This may come to a shock to some, but the term "Christian" covers a very specific type of belief. Generally it involves this dude Jesus Christ, maybe you've heard of him? From what I understand, that's the important thing as far as, y'know, Christianity is concerned.

Though, what do I know, I'm a godless heathen Atheist.
