Are American Christians Facing Persecution Or Is It Just A Myth?
Reader, you can't go onto any right-wing blogosphere, Facebook, You-Tube, etc., for this terror of "the persecuted Christian in America" myth. My question is just where are Christians being persecuted in America? It's accurate to say that some folks claim they are being persecuted, but this is a highly questionable claim. This claim almost always has to do with some school doing away with prayers at football games, or a kid told that she/he can't bring their Bible to school, or read it, or pray before meals, etc. I just don't see the "persecution" they do and wonder if any Christians are being persecuted in the US?
Sorry, there's zero evidence that they are. What you do have, however, is a small group of rightwing Christians who see any challenge to their way of life as "persecution," including being required to treat other people with the same respect they'd treat people inside their tight little group.
Is It Accurate to Say that American Christians are “Under Persecution”?
