I am still Homeschool Atheist Momma!Tonight I was just clicking around the internet as I gathered my thoughts for another blog post that I was working on so I went to a thesaurus page and typed in the word Christian.
Can you guess what synonyms were offered for that word?
moral, righteous, honest, honorable, principled, proper, clean, conscientious, correct, decent, elevated, equitable, fair, fitting, good, high-principled, just, kosher, moralistic, noble, respectable, right, right-minded, square, straight, true blue, upright, upstanding
Well, that just got me to wondering...
The synonyms for atheist are:
nonbeliever, free thinker, infidel, agnostic, pagan, skeptic, heathen, irreligionist, gentile, heathen, heretic, non worshiper, unbeliever, iconoclast, idolater, idolist, scoffer, apostate, cynic, undogmatic, doubter, doubting Thomas, materialist, misanthrope, misbeliever, nihilist, pessimist, profaner, questioner, rationalist, libertine
I must say, I am quite OK with those words for atheist, though I can't say the same for Dictionary.com, but the synonyms for Christian are a bit much, don't you think?
I mean, GEEZ, I'm clean!
