This Should Be Christian Not Abrahamic (Yes / No)
I have been known to take the side of the argument everyone is against. Even if it makes me look evil, mean, sadistic or plain old crazy. -myself
Question everything. - multiple people, including myself.
All actions have consequences.

Think of all the "religions" out there and how many empty tabs it would generate. You could also take it one step further and you will have people who want sections for their specific denomination, i.e. catholic, baptist, sunni, theraveda, etc. This could lead to feelings of isolation, which may cause individuals to leave, or feel unwanted.
I agree with that completely
We have no need to divide them further. Maybe one day we will... but at the moment I think the way we have them is fine
Considering there would probably not be many people in those places, and it would be very desolate other than, say, a passing tumbleweed... yeah, it might be a bit of a waste.

As much as I am new here, and as much as I have yet to establish any significant credibility, I realize that the following could be weighted accordingly. That said:
Lumping the many different - Abrahamic faiths as stated - into the same assumes that they are collectively the 'same', which of course they are not. Now, that said, as an organizer of my own website and other such content that requires organization it would be silly to break things apart to provide - as others have pointed out - desolate places for certain topics of like nature.
My concern here is that Christianity is not the same across the different faith groups, not in the slightest, and without some sort of legend to decipher this, it could be come apparent to those passing and without prior knowledge, that they are.
I would however, vote to change it to "Christian(ity)" versus Abrahamic...but in doing so, I would also cut out things such as Judaism, Islam, etc and re-house those elsewhere...since they are not Christian in the slightest (but deserving of their own section).
My 32 cents.
