Yes, There Is Christian Persecution in America And Here’s What it Looks Like

B

I’ve often written about the American persecution complex that tends to see anti-Christian persecution under every rock, and have long been a proponent that such claims of persecution are often simply a loss of privilege or the ability to persecute others. Each time I say something along these lines, I usually get a flood of [Read More...]

Please, American Christians: Can We Stop Complaining About Persecution Now?

Screenshot 2015-02-16 11.09.17

No group of people has tested my resolve in following the ways of Jesus as does ISIS. Yesterday I was deeply grieved to see CNN news reports of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt– most of them who had been poor immigrants who had migrated to look for work- were kidnapped by ISIS, and beheaded in [Read More...]

Ken Ham, founder of the Creation Museum, is sporting a new look lately. No, he didn’t shave that beard. He’s not trying on skinny jeans for size. He hasn’t switched up his hair. He’s just sporting the ever trendy and fashionable anti-Christian persecution complex that’s so en vogue these days. Ken recently took to his [Read More...]

Iraqi Genocide: Our Violence Got Us Here

My spirit has been grieved in a way I haven’t experienced before as the situation in Iraq and Syria has turned for the worse as of late, and is now straight up out of control. The ISIS has made amazing strides in gaining power throughout the region, taking over whole areas, and has now begun [Read More...]

So Listen– It’s Not Religious Discrimination Just Because You Can’t Discriminate.

Earlier this week, the President signed an executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation. In a supposed civilized society with a separation of church and state, such a measure should be welcomed by all because anti-discrimination policies protect the rights of everyone. For me, anti-discrimination laws transcend theology and [Read More...]

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim and The First World Problem of “Religious Persecution”

It seems that what has happened here is that persecution in America has become just another example of the way we view “problems” in a first world setting. Regardless of what actually is occurring elsewhere, we’re consumed with what we perceive is happening here, and behave on a practical level as if our “problem” is way worse. The way we’ve come to view persecution is no different than how we’ve come to view so many other issues. [Read more...]

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim arrested AGAIN in Sudan! This is what real persecution looks like.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the woman who was just freed from death row in Sudan, has been arrested AGAIN. Ibrahim had been previously arrested on death row and awaiting 100 lashes plus death by hanging once her baby, born in prison, was older and weaned. She was sentenced to the 100 lashes for adultery as the [Read More...]

Examples Of Anti-Christian Persecution In Present Day America

In light of the fact that Phil Robertson’s employer has suspended him from the show Duck Dynasty over anti-gay and racist statements in a recent interview, I felt compelled to put together a list of examples of anti-Christian persecution in modern day America. I think it’s important for us as Christians to be aware of [Read More...]

Real vs. Fake Christian Persecution: how you can spot the difference

One of my biggest pet peeves in this world, is when folks in my tribe play the “persecution” card. On one hand, we can’t help it– we’ve been programmed to label any negative experience related to our faith in the category of “persecution”. However, we should know better– and should know that this is actually [Read More...]
