The latest derogatory term for Christians

Bereans:

Since God created the world, everything that He does is logical, orderly, and good. Rebellion against His law and created order produces chaos and degradation (see Romans 1:18-32).

When unbelievers try to justify their sin, their arguments do not withstand scrutiny, because at the root they are rebellion against God's created order. They cannot "win" the argument because their logic always breaks down. If you try to make a justification for any deviation from God's command, you have to make a justification for all deviations.

For example, God's design for marriage is one man and one woman for one lifetime. Instead of basing marriage on the standard set by God, the secular culture advocates that people ought to be allowed to "love whom they want to love." Under this reasoning, those who argue that polygamy is a moral alternative cannot claim that it is immoral for two men or two women to marry or for a pedophile to be able to marry a child because the basis of their logic is that we should be able to do whatever makes the individual happy.

They set themselves up to be the ones who define what is moral and what is not, and in the process they remove all logic for putting limits on anything. In other words, you get what we are seeing, that anything goes.
All of that was to say that the anti-God/Christ voices in our culture cannot win their arguments on logic, so they resort to epithets (name-calling) in order to intimidate and silence anyone who opposes them. As an example of what I'm talking about, watch this short, but very disturbing clip:
The primary epithets they've been using against Christians for the past couple of decades (bigot, hater, racist, homophobe, xenophobe, misogynist, transphobe) have lost their luster and no longer have the impact they once did, so these enemies of Christ must develop new labels for those who oppose them.

This article on the latest pejorative (another fancy word for name-calling) gets closer to the real issue...naming the One they really hate. Pay close attention, because you'll soon start to hear this one more frequently in the mainstream media.
