United With Christians?...
Christians are not a people anymore than horse thieves are a people.
Christianity is a behavior. Like stealing horses is a behavior.
Irish are a people. English are a people. Scottish are a people.
Identity is biological, not choice. To argue otherwise is to assent to Bruce Jenner being a woman.
Making an alliance with Christians is not about working with a people, but about working with individuals who behave in a certain way.
This is why there are “good” Christians and “bad” Christians and so many different denominations of Christians. For about the past 800 years everyone has been basically forced to call themselves Christian. However, genetics determines your identity and your proclivities.
So it’s a question of what kinds of people lay behind the descriptor. Some people are born to steal horses, others are born with the potential to steal horses and others are born that can never steal horses. Hence, devout believers and apathetic believers and atheists.
It’s genetics, not personal choice.
