Kid, you will never be persecuted. I don't think you would even know what persecution really is.

It starts with "It's coming... persecution. "
And end with "... did you know Bibles are a non-tax item in Texas?"
All the possible credibility was lost with that last line.

As Bibles are available (and openly displayed) in every bookstore in secular atheistic Sweden, and most households have a Bible or two, I don't think there's any imminent danger of Bible's being outlawed in the US.
The problem is not that we haven't received the message, the problem is that it's contradictory and divorced from reality. We are deliberately staying away from it, making an informed decision.

I think you people are more upset that you're not being persecuted as much as you wish you were.
They're $5.00 at Dollar General. I got mine at a thrift store for a quarter.

Did you know Acts5:41 that you are a very important person and that you are providing a very important service? For instance, did you realize that you're more important than all the medical staff in the whole of Nigeria, to give you an example of where you should position yourself. And that the service you provide is more vital and important than that provided by all the sanitation workers in the whole of California, for instance. Imagine the dire consequences should you ever feel compelled to stop doing this utterly necessary job. When the persecution comes, ask God if He wouldn't mind sending down Peter's shadow for a couple of hours, so that it might fall on you. That should rejuvenate you sufficiently enough to perform all your required tasks. Go on. Be a hero. Do it for God. You know He wants you to.

Salvation army won't even charge you for a donated Bible. Got a great Old/New Testament, unabriged and leather-bound copy years ago. I didn't have the Old Testament then.
I actually only have them as resource and fundie-check-mate tools. You can damn near pick up a Bible free anywhere. How many Bibles does one fundie need?
Have you ever noticed you see no ragged worn from use Bibles? (the copy I mentioned was thirty years old and in near new condition) Try finding a shiny-new Doc Savage paperback anywhere

How long? Not in your lifetime if we have anything to do with it. We're not trying to take anything away from you, just get the same as you have for everybody. I know to you that's the same as taking away, but still.
7/25/2010 5:14:26 AM
They're ignoring me! When, oh when will this persecution ever end?
7/25/2010 5:44:32 AM
I read about the afterlife
"How long before they shut down my providers of literature?"
The Bible? Literature? That's a good one!
7/25/2010 5:50:45 AM
I can buy a Bible on my Nook for a dollar! :D
And I'm pretty sure that the Bible is safe for re-printing...like, for a long ass time. Believe it or not, religious freedom is still working hard to make sure you aren't persecuted. Not that you seem to notice, but it's there.
7/25/2010 7:02:32 AM
"It's coming... persecution."
So is the Rapture.
Any time now...
"I really wonder sometimes when I'm handing out Bibles, how long I'll be ABLE to do it. How long before they shut down my providers of literature? How long before anything to do with evangelism is targeted?"
I suggest you familiarize yourself with the Constitution. Specifically the First Amendment.
"I think that is one reason I feel so compelled to do it. Better get your tracts now while you still can."
Oh, yes. They'll be snatching you off the streets any day now and taking you to some undisclosed location to "reeducate" you, I'm sure.
"On the positive side, did you know Bibles are a non-tax item in Texas?"
Perhaps they should be. They could finally fund that secession they keep yapping about.
7/25/2010 7:15:50 AM
Wow, that's a whole lot of paranoia right there.
Personally, I hope you keep handing out your
toilet paper kindling literature.
7/25/2010 9:55:10 AM
Eternity. That's how long it will take before Christianity experiences genuine persecution.
Cue PERSECUTED PERSECUTED NOT PERSECUTED.
7/25/2010 10:30:05 AM
Yah, I'm raising lions and tigers and having a big amphitheatre build on my property. when they are ready I will get some friends together and we will go hunting some fundies to really persecute. My only fear is that the prevention of cruelty to animals people might object because the fundies might start persecuting the lions and tigers by preaching at them.
BTW, I bought a bible in a motorway rest area for Euro 5, here in France. It'sno better than the KJV. Turgid.

"did you know Bibles are a non-tax item in Texas? "
Another reason to leave this shithole.
7/25/2010 11:06:05 AM
National persecute a Christian day: Let's teach them what the word means.
7/25/2010 12:38:25 PM
I'm in on the persecution. But I'm retired, so I do mine at home, just before and just after naps.
7/25/2010 12:45:36 PM
It's coming... persecution.
On the positive side, did you know Bibles are a non-tax item in Texas?
Is a little fucking consistency too much to ask for?
I really wonder sometimes when I'm handing out Bibles, how long I'll be ABLE to do it.
As long as you like, the first amendment guarantees it. Now here's my question: how long can an atheist billboard be up without you fuckers either vandalizing it or condoning the vandalization of it?
How long before they shut down my providers of literature? How long before anything to do with evangelism is targeted?
As long as the first amendment exists, you're protected. Because see, we actually respect the first amendment unlike you fuckers.
I think that is one reason I feel so compelled to do it. Better get your tracts now while you still can.
Don't worry, we won't run short of Bibles and tracts. Those things are like weeds, they're everywhere and even if someone DID try to get rid of them they wouldn't go away.
7/25/2010 2:05:14 PM
I wonder how many dommes can report stories of clients with really twisted end-times fetishes and a thing for crucifixion.
7/25/2010 3:49:38 PM
I used to be given Gideon Bibles a LOT as a girl. At one point, we had a dozen of those pocket Bibles that had never been opened, because we already had a half-dozen full-size, COMPLETE versions of the Bible to which we could easily refer whenever we wanted.
The people who accept those Bibles, don't need them. And those of us who actually read the Chick Tracts, generally do so for the unintentional humor.
7/25/2010 5:57:54 PM
Dude, the Gideons were handing out Bibles on my college campus. There's no persecution. In order for Christians to be persecuted, two things would need to happen:
1. Christians would need to be a minority
2. The majority would have to really, really dislike not only Christianity, but Christians themselves.
Neither of these seems likely to happen, for which I am personally thankful.
7/25/2010 6:40:28 PM
Yes, we're coming to get you. And yes, we will most definitely kill every christian we come across, we'll burn the bibles and eat their children. So batter up, buddy! 'Cause hoverboards may not work on water, but the PERSECUTION IS COMING! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!
7/25/2010 6:55:24 PM
7/25/2010 7:16:25 PM
Um, there's umpteen copies of the bible available on the Internet, in public libraries, in book stores and available for free from many evangelists. I don't think there will be a shortage any time soon.
7/25/2010 7:55:38 PM
People who receive tax exemption for their religious institutions and scriptures should better not dare to speak of persecution
