It’s the same old, tired argument. The people on top love to feel like they’re being dragged down by the people on the bottom. I’ve heard a few white people claim that they are treated worse than black people, because everyone hates them and blames them for their problems. Christians are no different. Actually, they’re FAR worse. Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Law Center, said, “religion clauses protect atheists but afford no comparable protection for Christians.”
This is not uncommon. Bryan Fischer, American Family Radio, claims homosexuals are purposely trying to destroy marriage (he also claims homosexuals gave us Hitler). Pat Robertson believes atheistic professors and liberals are going after evangelicals like Hitler went after the Jews. The list goes on and on…and on. At this point, it’s hard to say anything but, “WAAAAHH!!!”
The Internet is littered with blogs, articles, and videos screaming that there is a “War on Christianity.” Why? Who can really answer that? Perhaps it is because they love to feel hated. Maybe it’s because playing the victim gets more sympathy.
AtheistConnect has the real answer. Christianity in America IS under attack. Not so much Christianity as much as the uncivilized, ancient rhetoric and hate shoved down the throat of every American today. Despite the war waged by us, the tiny and most distrusted minority group in the U.S., Christianity is still doing surprisingly well.
Look at these shocking, yet still boring statistics:
2. In 2002, 82% of the country claimed to be Christian. . That makes Christians the largest majority group in the United States, but then again, those dirty Mormons probably claimed to be Christian too, but we all know they’re just a cult.
4. Christians have successfully stopped legislation granting equality to homosexuals (marriage and adoption) is several U.S. States.
Christianity has declared war on the minority groups in America. It’s declared war on humanity. Homosexuals are chastised and hated, called immoral, condemned to hell, and denied equal rights. The vast majority of churches in the U.S. remain segregated. Science teachers, college professors, and other intellectuals are painted as Liberals and Communists who hate America. Smaller denominations within the Christian church are referred to as cults.
When a person who is not plagued by religious thought takes a second and analyzes the world around him/her, it becomes obvious that something is wrong. Something does not measure up to true morality, which acts outside of religion and tells us that the oppression of any other human beings is wrong. Yes, there is a war on Christianity today! And it’s a good thing too.
