via Will Religious Freedom Continue to Ring?
If America persecutes Christians so badly, she should try living in Pakistan, Iran, or North Korea. THEN she can grouse & kvetch about persecution & ” oppression “, etc.
Oddly enough, in half a heartbeat, these same folks would start a theocracy where no differing opinions, views or expressions thereof would be tolerated. But Christians should be given a free pass, I guess…..
Trust me, any group would get the same ” no confidence ” vote from me – Religious, extreme Dawkins atheist, neo – Conservative, Uber – Liberal or extreme vegan. Religious extremists get little to no sympathy from me even in the U.S. Bible Belt anymore than any other group.
I really have no idea what to think about this. Contemporary media seems to think that depicting Southern U.S. ” Bible Belt ” companies & groups as ” racist ” & homophobic as well as mega – Conservative ( & I have known & do presently some Southerners who are extremely Conservative, like in my own family ) can boost readership / viewership.
Chick – fil – a makes a TASTY ( If somewhat cholesterol – laden ) line of poultry – based items, but ever since my big move in ’08, I haven’t seen a Chick – Fil – A, nor do I really miss them. & I’m trying to eat healthier, too. So, unless one opens up a couple of blocks away, I’m not going to stress about boycotting them.
What bothers me is that the founders & managers are – or at least CLAIM to be – Christian conservatives espousing family values. The last time I checked, homophobia & racism were DEFINITELY NOT Christian family values. Unless you were a Tea Party member or member of the Religious Right.

In June 2012, fast-food chain Chick-fil-A was placed in an extremely unfavorable light following a series of public comments made by its chief operating officer and son of the company’s found…

I have NO room for ISIS extremists, Christian hyper – Evangelicals on steroids who want to turn the U.S. into ” Jesus – Land ” & ostracize everyone who ISN’T a WASP Christian ( Or at least programmed with their particular version of Protestant Fundamentalist Christianity & xenophobic distrust / hatred. ) or the ” Extreme ” atheists who believe that everyone who believes in things unseen & unmeasurable are poor mindless, blind, deluded sheep – or maybe lemmings.
To be continued, again, later –
To a substantial number of people if they talk like ISIS and behead people for religious non-compliance like ISIS, the Saudis are ISIS-like.

You tell him, girl ! Making a good choice of symbols aimed at that deluded fascist nut – case.
Too bad the GOP puts so much weight on division & mindless paranoia. Things could’ve been SO different for them if they embraced unity & sanity.
