The discussion has been wonderful. I hope to be posting more in a few
days. In the meantime I'm trying to track down when/who/where the modern
Christian use of the fish symbol came about, and what were the meanings
attached. Preliminary discussion with colleagues and friends suggests
that it started out in the mid-70s much like the usage in the early church
days as a sign of mutual recognition, not really a political statement per
se, but that it's become politicized and more narrowly confined to
conservative Christians of late.
