    Alright, I'll list two of the big ones. Same sex marriage and homosexuality in general, and abortion. Both are inconsistent with Christianity.

    May I ask what denomination, if any, you are a member of? What type of church do you attend? Do your fellow church members know you support SSM and abortion on demand?

    Some Evangelicals/Christians want to socially persecute others, and thus they are treated appropriately for trying to do so.

    Fanatics are rarely well tolerated outside their fringe group. They tend to assume the world revolves around them.

    No. It's actually quite insulting to Christians in other countries that are discriminated against when some Christians in the U.S. claim they are being persecuted against because of gay marriage being legalized or some other reason that holds no weight.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    So, it's not Christians that face derision, just people that are douchebags about it.

    There is no violation. Plenty of churches around where religious belief can be practiced.

    That the two latter principles (bolded) are held societally higher than the delusional belief of being entitled to using one's business to null them, is a good thing.

    To use one's business as a tool of discrimination against any group, simply based on its way of life (provided there is no ensuing illegality attached to it) is unlawful.

    It precludes nobody from finding that particular way of life abhorrent, on whatever pretext.

    not a lot of people are mocking them or attacking them for living out their faith, not unless their "living out their faith" means denouncing others, discriminating against people who are themselves living "out their faith or non-religious way of life".

    And not being allowed to discriminate or being intolerant is not evidence of being discriminated against as some Christians claim.
