Christians are so persecuted in this country it is practically like ancient Rome, except instead of being thrown to the lions, they are punished for discriminating against gays. Well they have decided to take a stand by suing for the right to be intolerant and bigoted, or in their words, “Christian.” We personally don’t see intolerance and bigotry as parts of the Christian faith so integral that they should be legislatively protected, but others see it differently:
Policies intended to protect gays and lesbians from discrimination end up discriminating against conservative Christians. Evangelicals have been suspended for wearing anti-gay T-shirts to high school, fired for denouncing Gay Pride Month at work, reprimanded for refusing to attend diversity training.
And our personal favorite: “When they protest tolerance codes, they’re labeled intolerant.”
Fancy that. We think this is all a publicity ploy, but is a downright offensive one.
