lol "everyone loves the gay agenda"

 

as gay people still can't get married in 40 states

 

e: also that first paragraph in the very last comment looks straight out of at least one carolina huddle dot com poster's playbook

When did The Golden Calf of Bristol become the poster boy for victimization?

 

Seriously, I have seen at least 10 fb post in the last two days regarding The Golden Calf of Bristol and how he's treated.  These post are by people who wouldn't even know the name Alex Smith. No one should even know his name yet he is probably the most known QB in football why? Because he wears his religion. DId any of the fb post have anything to do with football skillz? not one.

Christians are supposed to be persecuted. It's one of the basic tenets of the religion. Many will bend over backwards to make it seem they are as persecuted just as the early followers were in Rome.

Thus the cartoon shown above and the constant howling over prayer in school.

Very true.

I recommend the book The Myth of Persecution: How Early Christians Invented a Story of Martydom, by Candida Moss a professor of New Testament and Christian Origins in the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame

Russell Wilson mentions God more than any other player I know (look at his twitter ffs) and to my knowledge doesn't get criticised for it. He actually says that God helps him win football games too, unlike teblow

Maybe it's because teblow belongs to the most persecuted group in america, the SWCM

LOLOL RT @TimBrando: Being a Christian White male over 50 that's raised a family means nothing in today's culture. The sad truth. Period.

Sometimes I think a world where we have to survive by fighting in a giant Thunderdome does not seem so bad.

If you live in the south and in a conversation with group of neighbors or parents at a soccer game and someone says that they are not attending a church and more of a "spritual" person...or i do not follow any religion...Or better yet..i am an atheist! Agnostic! Whatever!

Tell me who will be the most persecuted person in that circle. Hint: it will not be the Christians!!

I feel sorry for the middle-eastern-black- gay atheist..the most persecuted person on earth...or in the South at least.

No kidding. Been there. So often I'm asked, "where do you go to church". I use to say, "oh we don't go to church" or "we're between churches" and the conversation got somewhat uncomfortable. Now I say, "I'm agnostic" and they stumble over their words and typically they never approach me again.

 

I've noticed similar treatment to anyone who is not Orthodox Christian as well. Especially when I was in church. We were often pre-warned of their antics (questions) and beliefs before Bible studies etc.  They'd eventually get kicked out of the church or shunned away.  This is experiences from churchs like Elevation not some uptight Presbyterian enviroment.

Let's quantify the persecution instead of conjecture.

How often does it happen in the media be tv or print? When it happens what % of christians retaliate thru boycotts or violence? What is the number of christians that move to other countries and envoke violence in the name of God?

Just for a sample size what % of christians feel comfortable enough to even mention God or church at soccer matches or work?

What % of companies have policies in place where if you forward an email with anything religious you can be fired? Not an email inviting someone to church but maybe a quote or an article?

Finally. What % of threads in the tinderbox are started with sole intent to bash or bully someone who is religious as opposed to someone religious starting threads bashing or bullying non believers? Is it 50/50 or leans heavily one way or the other?

Just curious how this all can be quantified.
