Take a famous essay on privilege (PDF), apply it to religion, add Christmas music, ask whether Christians are really being “oppressed” this holiday season, and you get this simple-but-insightful video:
Christians aren’t oppressed over Christmas. And they’re certainly not oppressed in America. They have damn near every privilege you can imagine.That’s why it’s so frustrating (or laughable) when they complain about one of our billboards, or that an atheist said something anti-religious on TV, or that separation of church and state harms Christianity somehow.
They have their own TV channels and music genres. They have buildings in every city — often multiple ones. Their message is well-known to just about everyone. We all know a Christian. They can run for public office in every state, and their beliefs are simply accepted without question.
But we’re the oppressors because we put up a couple signs or shared space with them in a state capitol building.
