Persecution



Christians say they are persecuted.
  They can’t pray in public school,
 but they can pray where or whenever they want
 if they say it quietly.
  According to them they can’t say Merry Christmas,
  I’m 65, no one has ever stopped me
  from saying Merry Christmas.
  I say Happy Holidays so that all people feel included
  in the season out of respect for them.
  Real persecution was suffered by the early Christian
  They were thrown to the lions for the amusement of
  the Romans.
  They were stoned and beaten.
 They had to have Mass in Catacombs or caves
  using a password to keep spies out.
  That is real persecution.
  Christians, today, seem to be the persecutors.
  They want to force their beliefs on all people.
  I don’t think Jesus would approve.
  You teach and convert by good example not force.
