Poor persecuted U.S. Christians

Invisible Christian Privilege

I’ve been writing about Christians a lot lately. It’s seems largely unavoidable, as the influence of Christianity often haunts even the most Pagan of stories. We may be slowly moving into a post-Christian era, and some may question if the United States is really Christian at all nowadays, but the facts on the ground show that the vast majority of Americans (and Britons, Canadians, and Australians) identify as some flavor of Christian. Contrary to the fear-mongering of some about the evils of secularism, Christians still have massive influence on our culture, our economics, and our politics. The terms of debate on issues like same-sex marriage and abortion are framed by Christians.

Really. Really?? Still, always - my evangelical sister has whined about her supposed persecution. The bible admires her martyrdom.
