That's some crazy Kool-aid you're drinking.
While Christian persecution is widely recognized in other countries, most do not realize the persecution happening right at home.https://www.beliefnet.com/news/is-there ... erica.aspxChristian persecution not just happening overseas -- many in US targeted for their faith, too
Approximately 215 million Christians worldwide experience very high to extreme persecution. Newsweek reported in January 2018 that “the persecution and genocide of Christians across the world is worse today than at any time in history.”
Now, the threat of religious persecution is rearing its head in the United States. Recently, Sens. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., posed snaring questions to Brian Buescher, an Omaha-based lawyer nominated by President Trump to sit on the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska. As a Catholic, Buescher adheres to traditional religious values. Yet, he was subjected to scrutiny and specifically targeted for his faith in order to cast doubt on his ability to serve in public office.
In general, the beliefs of the right are being called closed minded, however they are beliefs that are found in the Bible and have been a part of this country for years. For example, where Christian bakers are refusing to bake cakes for same-sex weddings, or those in public office are refusing to authorize same-sex wedding certificates. These people that have stood up for what they believe in were given a huge amount of negative publicity, as well as lawsuits filed against them.
At campuses throughout the country, outspoken Christians are regularly demeaned, debased and targeted for their beliefs. Academics, social groups, and college organizations regularly ridicule Christians by calling them hateful, bigoted, and privileged, among other labels.
Just like many campus colleges, public schools are getting hit as well. Student groups like InterVarsity have been kicked off campuses, and a teacher in New Jersey was suspended for giving a student a Bible. A football coach in Washington placed on leave for saying a prayer on the field at the end of a game.
Incidents like these demonstrate how Christians are being targeted in the United States for adhering to their values.https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/christi ... -faith-tooTexas Church Shooting: More Than Two Dozen Parishioners Killedhttps://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/se ... ng-n817751
