Quote# 54257

[Regarding Prop 8; the entire post, and all the comments, could qualify for this site]

I've never been one to buy into the gloom and doom prophecies among many believers that persecution is imminent for American Christians. But the reaction by the mainstream media and Hollywood elite over the passage of Proposition 8 in California has been so profoundly antagonistic toward Christians, I'm beginning to wonder if there's something to those dire predictions.

...

During my time on Capitol Hill, I had a Christian mentor who would say that if persecution ever comes to America, it will begin over political issues surrounding homosexuality. And when I say persecution, I mean being locked up, beaten or even killed for proclaiming Scriptural truths in the public square.

Fascism came to USA dressed in a priests robe and wrapped in the bible!

Is Prop 8 really such a good example of the way you're the ones being persecuted?

Religion is an aberrant lifestyle choice and, as such, is not worthy of legal protection. So there!

You're kidding, right? Persecution of Christians because civil/human rights are denied to a group of people who have no impact on your life? I've heard it all. This is ridiculous. But then it's Phukus on the Family.

Yeah, it seems pretty likely that the huge Christian majority in the U.S. will be locked up, beaten and/or killed for spouting religious nonsense in public. You're a paranoid idiot. Now STFU and go away.

"Scriptural truth" isn't.

Oh wah. The court told you that banning Gay Marriage is unconstitutional, so you ran over, grabbed the constitution, and started scribbling things out. And then you wonder why we get pissy. Apparently rights are only rights when they're YOUR rights.

If you are going to act like bigots, you shouldn't be surprised when others disagree with you.

I fucking hope this guys completely right, give them a taste of how they treat others. After all you chose to be Christian, you shouldnt care if we strip away your rights and treat you like shit.

No.

Take your meds.

Allegory for Jesus

"And when I say persecution, I mean being locked up, beaten or even killed for proclaiming Scriptural truths in the public square."

I think that anyone who begins an argument with "But, the Bible says" deserves a beating. Just consider yourself lucky I don't control the law (and think about that next time you are trying to control the law yourselves!).

"I mean being locked up, beaten or even killed for in the public square."

Scriptural Truth...HAHAHAHAHAHA
Truth in the bible is just like the WMDs in Iraq. I still don't think they ever found the WMDs.

If that's the punishment for incitement to violence, then so be it.

The reaction? Protests, mostly peaceful (better than most fundie protests). A few boycotts (i recall fundie Christian groups calling for a lot of these). Maybe a lawsuit here and there (again, funie groups like these)

Yep, they really have it in for "Christians"
