I have noticed a couple of comments on other posts and was wondering. Do the Christians in this country really feel persecuted?
The majority in the US are Christian, most of our political leaders are, Christmas is a national holiday. Besides having people disagree with you and wanting you to keep your religion to yourself how are you persecuted?
Has any Christian here ever been told they could not worship in private or at their church?
I don't think others believing differently than you and not wanting your beliefs enforced as law or treated as more valid than theirs is persecution.

It's a serious and legitimate question. I could be missing something and be enlightened.

Actual born again Bible believing Christians make up a tiny percent of the population. Many attend church but that does not make them a Christian. Unless one has accepted Christ into their heart they are not saved. There are churches filled with people who will go to hell someday. Many churches today are Seeker friendly or Emergent churches and never teach that one has to be saved to be with God. So most Americans are not Christians and call those of us who are crazies. That is OK with me. I don't mind the weird looks when we pray in a restaurant. I don't mind the moms not talking to me at the school because my Jesus germs might spread to them. I have great born again friends and a few friends who are actually tolerant of my beliefs that I hang out with. Life is good.
