Steve, the key is that Jesus is Everyman - we are Jesus, Jesus is us. That's why the legend persists, and indeed the origin of the nativity myths. If we can use Jesus to help us see others, then as an atheist I have no problems in standing alongside my Christian friends. But so many people use Jesus as a barrier or an excuse to ignore others. A wall instead of a window. That's the sort of thing that breeds Bad Christianity, such as fundamentalism, creationism, SPUC etc. I think Christianity needs to change, to turn its back to the cross and towards the real people suffering here, in Gaza, Syria or anywhere.
Cheers!
