Yes, I know this will probably start drama, but it doesn't stop it from being a good video. (And making a good point.)

Video has good point. I also know that there are christians all over the world who are persecuted and killed for their religion. Jesus Christ was bashed and hung on a cross. We just have freedom here in America to practice our own religions....thank a vet for that! I don't think anyone should be bashed. I don't think these two sides should be compared.

That's true, but this post is more about what happens here in the US, where the majority of the population is Christian and not killed for their religion. (Persecuted, yes, but everyone is persecuted for something these days.)

Not trying to be nasty, but I did make that point.  I agree with you it shouldn't be happening.  I We just have freedom here in America to practice our own religions....thank a vet for that!

Thanks! My cousin posted it on her blog and I kind of stole it from her, but I really enjoyed it and thought it made a very good point. I'm afraid that it will make some people mad (I'm sure it will), but oh well.

I thought it was an excellent video.

I would say, however, that in the sense he uses "bashing", Christian-Bashing does exist:

  • August 12, 2007: A lone gunman, Eiken Elam Saimon, opened fire in a Missouri Micronesian church, killing a pastor and two other churchgoers.
  • May 20, 2007: A standoff between police and a suspect in the shootings of three people in a Moscow, Idaho, Presbyterian Church ended with three dead, including one police officer.
  • Although not at a church building, the Oct. 2, 2006, attack in Lancaster County, Pa., by a gunman who killed five girls and then himself at an Amish school targeted a religious site.
  • May 21, 2006: Louisiana. Four were killed by a man at Jesus Christ Church.
  • Feb. 26, 2006: Michigan. Two people were killed at Zion Hope Missionary Baptist Church by a man who reportedly went to the church looking for his girlfriend. He later killed himself.
  • April 9, 2005: A 27-year-old airman died after being shot at a church in College Park, Ga., where he had once worked as a security guard.
  • March 12, 2005: A man walked into the services of the Living Church of God in Milwaukee and open fired immediately, killing seven people.
  • Oct. 5, 2003: A woman opened fire in Turner Monumental AME church in Kirkwood, east of Atlanta, killing the pastor and two others.
  • Sept. 16, 1999: Seven young people were killed when a man opened fire during a prayer service for teen-agers at the Wedgewood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas.

And that's not touching on places outside the USA, like China


Of course it is debatable how many of those were done by someone who considered themselves to be specifically anti-Christian.

I was going to say that I know a couple of those were not religiously related, but were targeting specific people.

Why can't we just live and let live... why is that so hard for some people to do??
