Another example of your reading comprehension problem.
You suggested we ask Jim specifically if he thinks Jesus Christ is evil
. My response to that: he said before he is an atheist.
Look up the word atheist.

NOW he has answered, PJ. At the time you got my response, he had not answered. You are a little too impressed by your 20/20 hindsight.

he is obviously not talking about Christ because he already said that Christ is not evil
I'm glad Jim elaborated; doesn't change that I was absolutely correct in my response to his choice of words. Now that he set the record straight, we know that A) he agreed with my response, that Christianity actually isn't fundamentally evil, and B) he didn't ever really mean he's an atheist--more along the lines of agnostic.

If he was thinking about a different
christianity, it contradicts his "fundamentally evil" wording. Christianity, at its fundamental meaning, is what it is. As a rule people write what they mean, and use words as they are defined.
