Interesting comparison with Christianity.  So if I think someone is clutching onto Christianity as basis for intolerance, you don't see the irony in throwing out "you Christian" as an insult when the person takes no offense to being called a Christian?

ETA  - you're saying that my repugnance of Christianity in this hypothetical scenario is enough for the term Christian to be an insult to someone else?  That's not very logical.

Yep, I would say that approach backfired "bigly".

I am saying the use of the term "Evangelical Christian" in the bubbles that you normally reside is understood to be an insult. The claim that Harper is an "Evangelical Christian" was often put out there as a reason to not vote for him which makes no sense unless it was an insult.

At this point it is clear that you lack any capacity for self awareness (a problem common among SJWs)

I have been chastised for my so called Christian beliefs and I'm not a Christian or any other religious denomination.

Fascist is a particular favourite of the left when referring to conservatives.

conservative is a label the regressives like to pretend they are. The fact is they are environmentally irresponsible, economically dangerous, financially incompetent and socially awkward.

I get what you're saying but I don't think you get what I'm saying.  Do you think Harper should take offense with being called an Evangelical Christian, even if it's used pejoratively by someone like me, if he identifies as an Evangelical Christian?

At this point it is clear that you lack any capacity for self awareness (a problem common among SJWs)

Oh that's about as insulting coming from you as being called SJW by Argus.

That's something completely different, I wouldn't want to be called something I don't identify with either.  I'm talking about being called something that you do identify with and which doesn't bother you. 

Is it really an insult if someone is not insulted by the term?

Sounds like you are projecting your own feelings/failings onto others.

That about sums up the far right.
More so the far left - or even just left

You are missing point entirely. No one who uses the term "Evangelical Christian" as an insult cares what Harper thinks. It term used to communicate ideas to others. Similarly, no one who uses the term "SJW" as an insult cares what you think about it.

So basically it is a pejorative, and too bad I never grew out of grade 4.

Oh Tim you're such a conservative!

That was my way of insulting you even though you're not really offended.  But using your logic, it really was an insult because in my mind conservative is a bad thing.   :D
