    Putting On My Moderator's Hat

    The term Jesus Freak as used by secularists is considered derogatory against Christians in general, and I get the feeling it's being used to antagonize people here.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_freak

    The phrase Jesus freak was originally a derogatory term applied to those involved in the Jesus movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The term came into existence within the context of the freak scene of that era. However, some Christians now consider it a reclaimed word, as Christians, especially Christian youth, occasionally use it today as a positive term to let others know that they are not ashamed of their belief in Jesus. At first, the term was used only in reference to members of the Jesus movement, but it has since found wide usage outside of that scene. Secularists still sometimes level Jesus freak as a derogatory epithet against Christians in general.
