  • We may be in the majority, but we are the most restricted, hated, bashed and yes, oppressed group in America.

    Really? How many times have you had to hide your religious jewelry because if it were seen you would risk being fired? How many times have you had to make special arrangements to get time off for a religious holiday without being able to say why because it would risk being fired? How many times has your child been beaten up for being a Christian? Does your church have to blur the kids' faces in pictures from events on their website so they won't be bullied if someone at school sees it? How often have you invited a neighbor in only to have them quit speaking to you after they see a Christian symbol or book in your living room? How many Christians have had their businesses burned to the ground, or rocks thrown through the windows, because they are Christian owned?

    Right!  Gays and non-Christians have no idea what hatred is!

  • I'm tired of christian privilege. They've had a two-hundred year run of government offices closing on THEIR holidays, whoring for their "god" on our money and in our national pledge and generally having the "right" to silence anyone who doesn't believe as they do and block human progress with the bronze-age rantings of their bible. Now that we hell-bound non-believers are demanding the same right to put our religion--or lack of it--out there, they clutch their myths and non-existent god to their little chests and scream, "Mine! Mine! Mine!" like freakin' two year olds. Enough IS enough.

  • This IS America baby and if you are sick of Christians saying they are oppressed there is not anything you can do about it.

    Oh yes, there is. We can exercise our right to tell you to grow up and get over yourself. Sooner, rather than later, please.

  • What really irks me is the mentality of some that say "if we don't like it leave" Instead of sharing beliefs and respected time, we should just leave. Hmmm, that sounds rather Anti-American to me

  • No actually I'm sick of the MINORITY RELIGIONS demanding that we Christians silence ourselves because they are OFFENDED. America might not be a nation of a certain religion but the majority of us are Christians, and I'm sick and tired of having to cater to the minorites.

  • We may be in the majority, but we are the most restricted, hated, bashed and yes, oppressed group in America. Case in point, your question and how you worded it.
