Christianophobia

Christianophobia is a form of bigotry, which is an irrational fear and hatred of groups or persons who are different from oneself. Christianophobia occurs when this form of bigotry is applied to Christians. Not all non-Christians are Christianophobic or anti-christian. There is a moderate overlap among Christianophobia, evolution belief, leftism, and irreligion. These feelings of contempt for Christians have historically contributed to numerous genocides, and examples of democide and irreligious violence. Irrational fear and hatred of Christians and their faith is also very popular among the power elite and Hollywood.

"Another aspect that drove me to work on this project was that while I consistently saw evidence of Christianophobia in other areas of my life and in our society, unlike other types of intolerances, those who exhibited Christianophobia do not tend to think that they are intolerant. Usually those who do not like blacks or Muslims admit that they are intolerant but simply try to justify their intolerance. Those with Christianophobia tend to deny that they are intolerant but rather that they are fairly interpreting social reality. Envisioning themselves as fair and free of intolerance allows them to blame those they detest rather than recognize how their emotions have distorted their intellectual judgments." --sociologist George Yancey in an email interview with Napp Nazworth of the Christian Post [1].
