It is. Although i feel obligated to point out that I've known too many Pagans over the years who have the opposite of Rev. Kosak's problem: while they may know that most Christians aren't rabid fundies who would burn them at the stake given a chance, they find it hard to act on that knowledge and quit thinking "Christian" = "Pagan hater".

I concur with this. I still have a lot of problems letting go of pointless resentment toward a title (Christian) that encompasses SO many people, many of whom I know for a fact through personal experience are extremely warm, loving, tolerant, and kind people. Once a person's been mistreated it's very easy - too easy - to view everyone associated with a loaded label with negativity. Which, of course, can simply serve to justify the negative feelings/behaviors of the people that wounded them in the first place.

I have that problem as well, even though hanging out here for the...decade and a half?...that I have has softened my stance a bit.
