Let's explore some real persecution perpetrated BY Christians through the centuries. I will start the ball rolling with Banburg Witch Trials. http://malefiz-house.blogspot.com/2008/08/details-of-tortures-in-malefiz-house-of.html?m=1

Anyone else have specific examples of real persecution they would like to share, in hopes of opening the eyes of those who boohooo into their coffee that they are being "persecuted" by being told to put a nativity on private grounds as opposed to city hall?

This is not a holiday greeting thread but if that is all you can contribute, so be it. Happy Thanksgiving - I am thankful to live in a country where I am not tortured and burned at the stake because a power hungry Church abuses people's belief to get them to support real persecution.


Quoting Claire-Huxtable:

And Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

I once had some rednecks shoot at my house because I had a lighted pentacle on the front door.

 Exactly. It's Thanksgiving..You would think one day away from hating on Christians and spending it being thankful for your(general) blessings wouldn't be so hard. *sigh*

How is this hating Christians? AH, you are one of those who thinks any criticism of wrongdoing by Christians is hatred. Well, I am sure you would prefer we all believe nary a Christian has done a bad thing ever in the history of being but .. too bad.

http://www.religiondispatches.org/archive/politics/315/confronting_the_abusive_legacy_of_native_american_boarding_schools Just the first article I found. My Grandmother was a victim of this, She was taken away from her mother (Dakota Souix) and sent to a christian boarding school. She and her brother were beaten if they tried to use their language or follow their traditions.

Nah, but I grew up Catholic and all of my family and manyt of my friends still are. She is just oneof those who thinks if you do not pat Christians on the head and agree they are a persecuted majority, you MUST hate them.

 You assume too much. I hope some day you can let go of negative for one day, ...Hope you have a very blessed day!
