'It is dramatic, I have never seen levels of attacks like these'

A report by two U.S.-based religious freedom groups says anti-Christian persecution is on the rise in America.
The joint report   by Texas-based Liberty Institute and Washington-based Family Research Council says groups like the American Civil Liberties Union aren’t the only culprits. The report says government agencies around the U.S. are trying to push Christian expression out the door.
 “It is dramatic,” says Liberty Institute Founder Kelly Shackleford, of the recent hike in reported incidents of persecution. “I have been doing these types of cases for almost 25 years now. I have never seen the levels of attacks like these and how quickly they are now proliferating.”

Nobody is attacking Christianity. Christians just cant accept that this is not a christian nation and never has been.

Nobody is telling you to stop practicing your religion. Nobody is telling you to stop going to church or to stop living a christian lifestyle.

However, when Christians are using their religion in order to press social or legal issues in this country, thats when it becomes a problem. Muslims arent voicing out. Buddhists arent. Nobody except christians.

Marriage never has and never will be a christian word. You need to learn to live your own life and not try to control everyone elses. Youre against abortion? Great, dont get an abortion. Youre against Same-sex marriage? Great, dont get married to the same sex.

Nobody is forcing you to actually go through with any social issues.

Nobody is trying to take your religion from you. That would be stupid, because it would never happen. It WILL never happen. However, when you are opposing someone basic civil/human rights simply because YOUR religion suggests that its wrong, thats when youve crossed the line. That is your religion, not theirs, so stop trying to make them live by it.

another four years of obama will certainly see more discrimination of Bible believing Christians.
