I am a Christian. I cannot tell you how upset some people who claim to be Christians make me. For those who just think of Christians as closed minded, judgmental, unloving individuals - please know that those are fake Christians. What the core beliefs are love, forgiveness, that everyone is a sinner, all sins are equal, if you believe your sins are forgiven. Even if you aren't a Christian you have probably heard "Let the one who is without sin cast the first stone." Apparently this was left out of those "thumpers" Bibles.
