Surprise: Christians feel persecuted

The Christian Anti-Defamation League has just released their “Top 10 Instances of Christian Bashing” for 2009, and as you’ll see, most of them are centered around homosexuality:

10. Pro-life Pastor Reverend Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA was jailed for exercising peaceful, pro-life speech.

9. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois.

8. HBO’s program “Curb Your Enthusiasm” aired an episode where the main actor urinates on painting of Jesus. When confronted HBO would not apologize.

7. The overt homosexual participation in Obama’s presidential inaugural events by “Bishop” Vickie Eugene Robinson, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington D. C., and a homosexual marching band.

6. Police called to East Jessamine Middle School in Lexington, Kentucky to stop 8th graders from praying during their lunch break for a student whose mother was tragically killed.

5. Pro-life activist Jim Pullion was murdered in front of his granddaughter’s high school for showing the truth about abortion.

4. An activist judge ordered a home school mom in New Hampshire to stop home schooling her daughter because the little girl “reflected too strongly” her mother’s Christian faith.

3. The Federal Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate” that labeled conservative Christians extremists and potential terrorists.

2. President Obama’s appointment of radical anti-Christians like homosexual activist Kevin Jennings as the “safe school czar;” pro-abortion advocate Kathleen Seblius made Secretary of Human and Health Services, and Chai Feldblum, pro-homosexual and anti-religious liberty judge nominated for Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

1. The Federal Hate Crimes Bill that attacks religious liberty and freedom of speech. For the first time in our history ministers are vulnerable to investigation and prosecution for telling the truth about homosexuality.

Classically Liberal does a great job of boiling down every single point to show how none of these are the result of any specific anger or hatred against Christianity. Suffice it to say Christians have it pretty damn good, and this list is probably the weakest shit I’ve ever seen. It just confirms my beliefs that Christians are a bunch of fucking crybabies who can’t stand the idea of not being “in charge” anymore. Grow a pair, guys.

    Wow… tax-exempt status, a national majority following and political sway. Where do these C-words (christians) get off complaining of persecution?

    Wait, what about all the persecution of Mormons after Prop 8? The boycotts! The Thinking of Mean Thoughts About Them! The… uh… can’t think of anything else.

    Oh, wait, Mormons aren’t Christians. Forgot.

    Just as well. The imagined grievances of the Mormons would take up all ten slots, at least to hear them tell it.

    Well, the bible does say quite clearly that if you are a christian, you will be persecuted. If this is the best they can come up with, it’s yet another example of failed bible prophecy.

    Personally, I don’t understand why christians won’t let us throw them to the lions anymore; they get to go to heaven as martyrs, bible prophecy regarding their persecution is fulfilled (gay marching bands my arse), and we also benefit by not having to listen to them whining. Everybody wins…

    So Christians feel persecuted because gay rights is being brought onto the table now?

    I’m sorry… does anyone else see the blatant hypocrisy in that statement?

    I love my family, I seriously do, but I hope that soon they open their eyes to the idiocy that is the Christian faith. Doubtful, but I can always hope.

    Why is it that the Christians who made this list feel that just by treating gay people normally is an overt attack against Christians? And why is the fact that having safe schools for gay students is an offense to them? How are they being Christ-like here?

    Gay people aren’t the arch-enemies of the Christians. It’s some Christians who are wanting it to be that because in order for their churches to unite they create an “other” out of the gay community. “These are the bad guys, and we are the good guys” is what they are essentially doing.

    Well gay people aren’t an enemy. They just want to be treated normally, equally and with basic human respect. Sure some gay activist take action refuting organizations like this who have attacked the rights of gay people or are advocating violence. Of course they should defend themselves too.

    I think the only solution is education. Hopefully the younger generations will see that all this prejudice towards GBLTs is just ridiculous.

    about 171,000 christians are martyred worldwide every year.

    perhaps that is the kind of persecution, along with other acts of violence that really need to be of concern.

    although, restriction of rights- for anybody- is fucked.

    stop the name calling. its’ childish, dude.

    Why are you so fucking angry and intolerant? I’m an Atheist, not a Christian hater, and I cannot imagine spending every waking moment being pissed off at Christians and demonizing them. Moron. Get therapy.

    It becomes clearly obvious that there is a lot to know about this. I believe you have made a lot of excellent points in your article.

    If you are a christian,then you dont hate one sin! all sin is ugly.Jesus wants to have a relationship with all of us.Sadly, some will never heed the words of Christ,but they are to be loved,as our fellow human beings,sharing this rock! Only the sin itself is to be hated.And yes all persecution is to be considered pure joy,passing the test the enemy throws our way,shunning the hate against Gods truth. And as the writer suggested destroying Christians by bringing back the lions,God wants so very much to have a relationship with you too,even while desiring something so truly ugly,to your fellow man. Yes you would not be hurting the Christians,just sending them home!
