Guess how many American pastors have been jailed for the “crime” of being Christian?
None. And it’s never going to happen. It doesn’t matter how anti-gay or anti-women they get, the laws will continue to be on the side of free (even idiotic) speech — with the support of most atheists, I would add. No pastor will ever be arrested for refusing to perform a same-sex marriage ceremony or condemning birth control.
But if you listen to Todd Starnes and Tony Perkins, conservative Christians who thrive on promoting the idea of Christian Persecution, you’d think Obama was going to start arresting pastors before his term is over.
