Christian names?

The other day someone asked me what my christian name was. Well, I told them that I dont have one as im not a christian. They then told me that what they meant was is my first name. Well if they meant that why didnt they say so? What we see is people deliberately trying to push their religion down your nose. I asked them why they didnt call it an atheist name and they said that this was what everyone else they know calls it whereas they've never heard it called an atheist name before. Well, I then started telling them about how they shouldnt just follow everyone and be brainwashed. I asked them if they were an xian and they said no and so I must have had some impact on them. Anyway, I told them my first name and made them promise to never use the phrase 'christian name' again. Job well done.

Well, the term "Christian name" i believe, is in reference to the name a person was baptized as, which would include first, middle and last. In some instances, i think it could also be a name chosen by the person, when that person is Confirmed (i think Catholics do this, but i'm not sure).

You do live in the USA, correct? Midwest i'm guessing. I would think that you should have a clue.

Then i also laughed that you claimed you had some impact on them....

I suspected they didn't bother to respond to respond back because they discovered Mikey had the brain of a fruit loop and further discussion was fruitless.

Mike might want to look up the name Michael and see where it comes from. Besides being a "Christian name" it is a "Jewish name" predating Jesus by centuries if not some millennia.

Most ironically it means "Who is like God". ;-)
