First we had the Fortnight for Freedom because Roman Catholic's freedom was in jeopardy and then there was Missouri's Amendment 2 because Christians' freedom to pray was in trouble. This persecution complex is problematic because it paints us Christians as paranoid for our "rights".
And yet the real fight for religious freedom is not there...
It happened in Wisconsin when a Sikh Community was attacked.
It happened in Missouri when a Mosque was burnt to the ground.
I think the Christians in the USA should worry less about their rights and more about the other religions in our country who are attacked, defamed and made to worship in fear everyday.
Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart and especially the hearts of the people of this land, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
