I believe it was Arthur Koestler who coined the neologism 'mimophant'. He used it to describe those people who are excessively sensitive to criticism of themselves, reacting like the tender mimosa, but are utterly insensitive and indifferent to the feelings of others, like a raging elephant.
In his last post addressed to me Steve Shaw referred to me as 'Christian Brendan'. Why? My belief or non-belief was not and is not an issue. As I have said before my faith is my business and I am not interested in pushing it on anybody. I do not refer to or categorise other people by their beliefs. They are a non-issue for me. Homophobia, racism, religious fundamentalism, sexism, anti-semitism (not a comprehensive list) they are issues to be challenged. People's faith, or lack of it, is of no interest to me at all.
I am not interested in bullying anyone but nor am I prepared to be bullied - and if anyone thinks that calling me Christian is somehow demeaning they are deluding themselves, and it wouldn't be the first time.s
