Christians aren't persecuted in America, numbnutz. They were at one time, but it was by other Christians, hence the First Amendment, keeping your nasty, vile, immoral religion out of government.<quoted text>
"You set the bar when you professed your religious beliefs and the requirements that come with it"
so if i'm reading you correctly, you think it's appropriate to persecute me because of my faith! get in line pal, it's what y'all been doing since you killed Christ and before that you've been trying to annihilate the Jews!
Christians only stopped killing Jews in 1945. You really might be the most ignorant person I have ever encountered. Wasn't the plan for the kid to be tortured to death? Looks like the old man was responsible, no one else. You can't even follow your own immoral theology.
