 ...are like millionaires who feel poor because they are no longer billionaires.

America is filled with laws and customs steeped in Christian tradition.

You can call a Christmas tree a "holiday tree" at the Capitol, but we still know what it is.

(For the record, I quite enjoy Christmas trees, so the little hypocrite in me doesn't care...)

 I agree.  I think too many Christians throw around the word persecuted when the reality is, we can't even imagine what's it like to REALLY be truly persecuted for our faith.

Its an annoyance. Persecuted people usually have to worry about whether or not they will live to see the sun rise tomorrow because of their beliefs. That just isn't the case here. Just people getting butt hurt.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 Persecuted?  I personally, have never heard any Christians use that word.  Bashed, put-down, derided, heckled, sneered, scorned, mocked, scoffed-YES.

 I've never heard it IRL, but I've heard it on here several times. It always makes me smh.

There's nothing Christian about a Christmas tree. It is a pre-Christian Germanic tradition. The bible actually forbids the cutting of a tree and adorning it.

I have. I actually had quite the facebook debate with a pagan who insists that Christians in America are persecuted.
