I Don’t Think Christians Should Get to Use the #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion Hashtag…

Yesterday, #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion was trending on Twitter. You would think people using the tag would be declaring, you know, their unpopular opinions: They think MySpace is still cool, or the Cubs will win the World Series this year, or Anthony Weiner will make another comeback.

That’s just a random assortment of tweets. There are plenty more where those came from.

In case you’re wondering, a Gallup poll from 2012 said that 77% of Americans identified as Christians. They’re not unpopular.

I wish they were, but — by definition — they’re not. It’s just their persecution complex in action.
