I always get a laugh when Christians complain about being "persecuted"
Advertisements [?]
in the US in this day and age.

This is Stephanie, by the way, and not Michael...in case I am posting under his name.

I am in school studying Religion.

Over the years, churches have demonized people of color, ALL other Religions, women, and people who are not heterosexual.

Now, where am I supposed to find sympathy for Christians who are claiming harrassment?

Ridiculous. As far as DU posts about Religion are concerned: this is a political board with the general public involved. Take the religious stuff to the religious forum; and urge your politicians to quit attempting to base public policy on a belief system.
