If you wanna whine about being persecuted for your religion, step over...

Ugh! I just read another article about how Christians think they're being persecuted! Give it up already! You have NO CLUE what persecution is.

Don't Silence Christians

I write on this topic often so I think it's fair for me to finally tell you all why this alleged Christian persecution makes me so angry. It's because I know all about being targeted for discrimination because of my religion

I discovered (several years ago) that because of my beliefs (which are considered "occult") I am on a police watch list. We won't go into how I found this out. Actually I suspected I was on such a list back in the 90's, but it wasn't confirmed until later from a reliable source.

The ONLY reason I'm on that watch list is because I openly practice Demonolatry and have written books on the subject. I have to admit it did make me a little uncomfortable at first. It made me wonder what I did that was so wrong for me to be put on a list like that. See, the irony is that I've never done anything criminal. I pay my taxes and work hard. But I'm already labeled a "possible" criminal just because of my religion. The opinion of my religion is based entirely on popular Judeo Christian-based misconceptions rather than fact. So the fact that I'm viewed as a possible criminal is bullshit, IMO. All because people don't understand my religion and therefore fear it.

Here's the point of this article though -- Christians don't often get put on watch lists unless they ARE KNOWN CRIMINALS. So for those who feel persecuted I'll tell you what - I'll quit being so hard on all of you "persecuted" Christians when YOU are put on a police watch list alongside me for no good reason other than your religion. And in my opinion, until you've had something like that happen to you, you don't really understand what it really means to be condemned for your religious beliefs.

"See, the irony is that I've never done anything criminal. I pay my taxes and work hard." Seems so simple, doesn't it? So logical to look around and see exactly who fills the prisons, who doesn't pay taxes? My personal experience is that I don't know one non-Christian criminal, but I know many Christian criminals. I don't know one non-Christian who doesn't pay taxes, or even one who resents paying taxes, yet I know many Christians who brag about not paying taxes and many more who whine and complain about paying taxes. And I know a lot of both - Christians and non-christians. They perceive persecution simply because others have had enough of their duplicity and said enough! But then, I think their perception is off on many things, so it doesn't surprise me. While I'm on my rant, I'll tell you what annoys me more than anything. Christians who feel persecuted and make fun of me for fighting to protect their rights.
