- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
Many can't disagree civilly, and that's why there is hatred.

Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
And I think Jews would have an issue with you calling Christians the most persecuted religion in the world.
And I would really like to see how Christians and Jews and Muslims would react if someone tried to open a Church of Satan in any part of the world.
But to answer your question, no, I don't think most mainstream liberal media outlets hate Christians. Sure, there are media outlets that do, but there's also conservative media outlets (not mainstream) that hates anybody but Christians. So it probably evens out in the end.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
How many Atheists are in Congress these days compared to Christians, Jews, Muslims even Buddhists?

It's not the same though. Social conservatism demands priority for a mindset and lifestyle. Social liberalism generally distances itself from a specific mindset or lifestyle in favor of cultural relativism.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
