I think it is to some. Look at Facebook - half of the people in my church won't even list themselves as Christian, but anything else you bet including acting like childish fools. To me omtting Christian says "I want to be anynomous". I thought we were supposed to be salt and LIGHT. Well, seems people love the world more than Christ, but they want Heaven not hell, so . . .
Anytime you can mention Christ's name even there is power. Saying Merry Christmas may be the only Christ a person even hears that day.
I do believe people are ashamed of Christ. I used to be one of them.
