    For what its worth, I don't have a dog in this fight PoRob; I'm simply pointing out the obvious_
    Christians in this nation are NOT victims either. Plot out how many of our political leaders do not declare themselves Christian. Christians have had their way and still get their way almost all the freegin' time. Anyone whining that they are victims of anything in this country is beyond laughable.

    Occam's razor__I thought I made that quite clear several posts back Gimme!

    Although I suppose the long history of far-left attacks on Christianity was a dead giveaway as well_
    In a country that is overwhelmingly right of center, far left attacks are more useless than far right attacks. If you think hearing something they don't like means Christians are under attack, everyone everywhere s constantly under attack. As a Christian myself, i can state with certainty that the claim we are under attacks pure nonsense.

    ie; don't worry, we're on the same page_____I think?!
    Based on this, I believe we are. Between the wording and the lack of visual/audio cue, I just wasn't sure, which is why I asked for the expansion upon your comment.

    Not Occam, but jumping to conclusions.

    And I hate to break it to you, but this wasn't an "attack". As I said, people with irrational beliefs often come to delusional conclusions.

    Hatred would be displayed by lynching or burning someone at the stake......or shooting someone at an abortion clinic.


    Besides, you brought up getting an eye, a pound of flesh....
    Yea, there's really alot of lynchings and stake burnings and clinic shootings goin on these days, huh Gimme?!

    In reality, the very few abortion clinic shootings that did occur were publicly condemned by the great majority of the Christian community for committing such violence in the name of their faith_

    Your irrational hate has caused you to believe these isolated acts of violence of being common place_

    This is a far-left tactic, utilized to influence public opinion_(which only works on the weak of mind...hint)

    Seriously??? Christians have "had their way"???

    It appears to me that Christians have rarely had their way for the past few decades_

    The Marx inspired far-left hatred of religion has been very successful in that area_

    Your denial of the far-left's relentless war on religion indicates your politics takes precedence over your faith_

    Sorry Boo, but it's quite obvious that you don't take your Christian Faith very seriously_

    Oh please, spare us. The far left is too few and too powerless to do much of anything.

    As for my faith, you know next nothing about, but I'm secure enough in it not to see threats around every corner. Being paranoid and over sensitive is not a sign of strength nor faith. If your faith is so weak you get upset hearing the opinions of those who don't share your beliefs, well, you lack faith. This is what is happening with Christians today. They lack faith, and thus whine about how they are pick on instead of actually doing what their faith calls them to do. Gods work isn't about how many gays we can bash or liberals we can demagogue, but to feed the hungry, shelter the poor, and show God's love in ourselves. Do more of that, and people will flock to your doors. Keep up the pity party, and it will become clear there is nothing there to join.

    Were we discussion the number of times a thing happens or whether it happens? You posted a extremely minor, tiny, rare occurrence......and called it HATE!!!!

    You have jumped to an unsupported conclusion. this was not an example of hate, I gave you examples of acts of hatred.

    It got you wound up. You recognized that these were examples of hatred carried out by believers.

    Your irrational hate has caused you to believe these isolated acts of violence of being common place_

    LOL....you got yourself into such a frenzy when REAL examples of HATRED by believers were presented....that you thought you could read my mind and imagined I thought they were "common" now. I didn't, that is your JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS AGAIN.

    Breathe.

    I posted a tiny occurrence that is anything but rare or minor_

    This is but one of many attacks on Christianity that has been occurring regularly and for quite some time_

    And if you seriously don't know this then you are far too uninformed to participate in this discussion_

    I suppose this is the case for most people who get their news exclusively from source's such as MSNBC_

    You have jumped to an unsupported conclusion. this was not an example of hate, I gave you examples of acts of hatred.

    It got you wound up. You recognized that these were examples of hatred carried out by believers.

    If I posted examples of persecution by your standards, I could include Romans feeding Christians to lions in the colosseum_

    But such historical extremes aren't necessary with so many modern day examples still occurring regularly_

    You mean like that Jesus guy did before his execution? Why?

    such a passionate cry from someone who claims not to have a dog in the fight. I guess you're just their white in shining armor.

    yes. Christians pretty much own this country. no amount of crying victim is going to change this fact.
