I've come across responses in this section (as well as in the Journals section) posted by some Christians who really seem to believe that they are losing some rights to non-Christian groups. I've asked this before, but haven't gotten any valid responses. What are these rights (as granted in the Constitution) that have been lost only to Christians?Answer Question
None if they really want to know about religious rights being taken away they should spend some time in Columbia are the middle east. JMHO

Anon :23, I think you are confusing free expression with imposing those beliefs on all. Where, specifically, are you prevented from your expression of religion--keeping in mind that there is also the clause that disallows our government from sanctioning any particular religion?

I think the Christians in this Country have been privileged, and now that time are a changin' they are having tantrums like little babies all because those of other faiths and beliefs want to be treated fairly.

I agree but I see it as a few who really think this way. Most don't and are very happy to be a country where all forms of religion is recognised.

Thank you, oldermomof5, for that reminder. It is certainly not all, nor even most, Christians who seem to believe this, but a few very vocal ones, and it is to them that I post this question. I'm asking it, by the way, not to be contentious, but to understand what they think they really have lost, because I don't see that they've really lost anything.
