Real meaning: Someone who doesn't believe there is a God (an atheist)

Modern meaning: An insulting label used by strict religious people sometimes just to atheist/agnostics, but also to anyone who doesn't follow his/her religion.

Note: Calling someone a heathen, depending on the person, could be seen as very disrespectful.
