Even More Christian Persecution Yet Again and Again
It is not even July -- months before the "official" Christian Persecution season begins (around Halloween, when some Christians attack other Christians for following PAGAN rituals). And yet, there is already blatherings of renewed Christian persecution going on. Over at the 700 Club's "news" page, you will find this story, "Jesus Mural Attacked by ACLU". Apparently, nothing was learned from the whole Judge Roy Moore fiasco a few years back.
It seems incredulous to those of the militant Christian right that there could actually be people out there who are not only not Christian, but do not subscribe to Christian beliefs. They (the militant Christians) seem unable to grasp that this is a country of laws, and that the law applies to everyone equally. To force the religious views of one sect (Christianity) onto others in the context of law is blatantly illegal.
To everyone of the Christian myth/dogma I say this: Keep your religious views in your home, in your church, in your private schools, and on the public streets where preachers are freely allowed to preach next to the wino alcoholics begging for your change. But do not force it upon me and others in the one refuge of all Americans from intolerance, and that is our courts of law.
P.S. The last line of the article says this: "He [one unnamed judge of Slidell, Louisiana] says that the ACLU is acting like a "legal bully." -- Yes because forcing Jesus down the throats of non-Christians is in no way "bullying" them...
