Both non-believers and non-literal Christians vary widely in the size of their actual Jesus. I guess I can see the emotional draw to each position. For me, dangerous Christians are those who: want to limit science, women, and gays; are exclusivists; desire any degree of theocracy; suppress sexuality; suppress questioning and doubt; … well the list goes on. And you can find those folks among both Fundies or non-Literalists Christians. But then we also find those kind of folks in other religions and even in secular circles. Jesus is just clothing and a nefarious sanctification trick for Christians who do it.
