Does rejection of Christianity mean the rejection of Christ.?

Update: The source of the question is http://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comm... where the supposition is advanced that "Rejection of Christianity may not mean the rejection of Christ."
Update 2: One could "reject" Christ as being divine, as being a prophet, as a teacher, as a Jew, as someone who understands the will of God, as being an object of worship, or in many other ways. The horrors committed in the name of Christ by Christians make that part of the question less complicated.
