that is actually an absurdly bad analysis, like

  1. despite what some christians might lead you to believe, "christian culture" is not a contradiction in terms! christianity is as culturally particular as any religion - if it isn't then the normative christian claim to human universality may be correct! i do not think that is a line of thinking you'd be comfortable with, for obvious reasons.

  2. to say "white people have no culture" seems to reproduce colonial narratives that present whiteness as neutral. i can understanding saying this just to mock white people but it shouldn't ever be taken all that seriously.

  3. you also shouldn't take the category of "pagan" too seriously either, i mean its literally a christian construct
