Politicians Confused About What Makes A Minority

The Wild Hunt reports that Rep. Tim Scott seems to think Christians are a minority in the US:

If Rep. Scott were clear-eyed on the issue of religion he’d see which religious groups were truly struggling in his state. He’d see a Wiccan ostracized and harassed when she objected to sectarian government prayer (and later held up as an example of Christians being denied their freedom of religion), he’d see Pagans in local interfaith groups fighting to be recognized as something other than “other,” a place where any religion can get a religiously-themed license plate, so long as it isn’t a Wiccan wanting one. Despite this, we are forced through the looking glass into an inverted world where the increase of freedom and rights for a non-Christian group somehow decreases their rights and freedoms. It’s as if anything short of total hegemony were oppression.

    Well said Star.

    The uncomfortable secret for extreme Christians is that in fact they will always be a minority religion because each person interprets doctrine “literally” and each literal description is an interpretation because as soon as you put anything very complex into your own words, you change it.  Therefore other sincere Christians are ‘false Christians’ because they could not help but interpret what the ‘literalist’ claims to be the real meaning into their own words. 

    What such ‘conservative’ Christians really worship is their own flawed minds and understandings which in an extreme act of idolatry they call “God.” I suspect no greater pride is possible.
