All Over America Evangelical Christians Are Being Labeled As “Extremists” And “Hate Groups”

All Over America Evangelical Christians Are Being Labeled As Extremists And Hate GroupsAre evangelical Christians rapidly becoming one of the most hated minorities in America?  Once upon a time such a notion would have been unthinkable, but these days things are changing dramatically.  All over the United States, evangelical Christians are being called “extremists” and evangelical Christian organizations are being labeled as “hate groups”.  In fact, as I will detail later on in this article, a U.S. Army Reserve training presentation recently specifically identified evangelical Christians as “religious extremists”.  This should be extremely chilling for all evangelical Christians out there, because as history has shown us over and over again, when you want to persecute a particular group of people the first step is always to demonize them.  And that is exactly what is being done to evangelical Christians today.  Just look at how evangelical Christians are being portrayed on television and in the movies.  Just look at how much hate is being spewed at Christians on the Internet.  The Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU, both of which are considered to be among the most prominent “civil rights” organizations in the United States, are seemingly obsessed with attacking evangelical Christians.  It has become trendy to bash Christians, and that is a very frightening thing.  After they have finished demonizing evangelical Christians, what will the next step be?

A U.S. Army Reserve equal opportunity training presentation entitled “Extremism and Extremist Organizations” actually included “Evangelical Christianity” as an example of “Religious Extremism” in a list that also included al-Qaeda, Hamas and the Ku Klux Klan.  You can find a copy of the entire presentation right here.

Is this how evangelical Christians will be treated in the future?  Will evangelical Christians be treated like members of the Ku Klux Klan or like members of al-Qaeda?

The following is how a Christian Post article described this chilling report…

A U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief describes “Evangelical Christianity” and “Catholicism” as examples of “religious extremism,” according to the Archdiocese for the Military Services and the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, who shared a copy of the documents with The Christian Post.

“The number of hate groups, extremists and anti‐govt organizations in the U.S. has continued to grow over the past three years, according to reports by the Southern Poverty Law Center. They increased to 1,018 in 2011, up from 1,002 in 2010 and 602 in 2000,” reads the first page of the slide presentation labeled “Extremism & Extremist Organizations.”

Listed alongside “extremist” groups and organizations like the Klu Klux Klan and al-Qaida, the U.S. Army slideshow has “Evangelical Christianity” as the first bullet, followed by the Muslim Brotherhood, Ultra-Orthodox Judaism and farther down on the slide, Catholicism.

Posted below is a picture of the slide entitled “Religious Extremism”…

Religious Extremism

Below that slide there is accompanying text that condemns any religion that believes that it is the only “right way” and that believes that other religions are wrong…

Extremism is a complex phenomenon; it is defined as beliefs, attitudes, feelings, actions, or strategies of a character far removed from the “ordinary.” Because “ordinary” is subjective, no religious group would label itself extreme or its doctrine “extremism.” However, religious extremism is not limited to any single religion, ethnic group, or region of the world; every religion has some followers that believe that their beliefs, customs and traditions are the only “right way” and that all others are practicing their faith the “wrong way,” seeing and believing that their faith/religion superior to all others.

Well, that is exactly what evangelical Christians believe.  They believe that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross is the only payment for sin and thus the only way to be reconciled to God.  Unfortunately, this belief is now enough to be labeled as a “religious extremist”.

And sadly this is far from an isolated incident.  Since Barack Obama was first elected, Christians have been demonized in government report after government report.  In a previous article entitled “Patriots And Christians Have Been Repeatedly Labeled As Potential Terrorists Since Obama Became President” I detailed many of these instances.

But of course it is not just the government that is demonizing Christians these days.

Just look at what the reaction on social media has been to the death of the son of Pastor Rick Warren.

A lot of people out there have decided to use the death of his mentally ill son as an opportunity to spew hatred toward Pastor Rick Warren and his faith.  The following are a few examples of this hate that have been posted on Twitter…

-@Goatyeah Rick Warren compared Gay 2 mental illness/his son just killed himself 4 mental illness..Is Karma paying a visit 2 the ?

-@WagCasey So pastor Rick Warren’s son killed himself? Gee, I wonder what drove him to that?

-@BarberaLaPeters @BryanJFischer well after all the dead gay kids Rick Warren is responsible for, I guess one of his is a small price to pay.

-@SamirPerez Was @RickWarren‘s son gay? Maybe conversion therapy, condemnation and hatred towards gays was too much for matt…

-@War_of_Kings I wonder if Rick Warren’s son was gay and killed himself because of his father’s anti-gay bashing?

-@rashid7053 @BlazePhoenix_ I would’ve committed suicide if my dad was Rick Warren too.

-@GinsburgJobs @marlenan21 Rick Warren has done terrible damage; my first thought was that his son was gay thats why he did it. Its sad for the boy.

-@anyprophet so who else is shocked that rick warren drove his gay son to suicide?

-@TheReallyRick Son of Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren has committed suicide. Place your bets on when its discovered he was gay.

Sadly, those are some of the cleaner examples.  There are many more which include language that is definitely not appropriate for children to read.

So why are evangelical Christians hated so much?  Well, the truth is that they are primarily hated because of what they believe.  Attempts to intimidate evangelical Christians into changing their beliefs continue to become more frightening.  The following are just a few examples…

1 – A student at Florida Atlantic University was recently suspended from class for refusing “to write the word ‘Jesus’ on a piece of paper, fold it up, and step on it.”

2 – A 14-year-old homeschooler in Maryland received multiple death threats after testifying in favor of traditional marriage before the Maryland state senate.

3 – A 14-year-old student at a public school in Texas was suspended from school for saying that he believes that homosexuality is wrong.

4 – A gay activist group that smashed up a church in Oregon says that it hopes that it will “strike fear into the hearts” of Christian leaders…

The group that allegedly smashed up a Portland church hopes its “small act of vengeance will strike fear into the hearts of” Christian leaders who teach traditional sexual morality, according to an e-mail message the group released to the public. A group calling itself “Angry Queers” has claimed responsibility for throwing baseball-sized rocks through nine church windows in Portland’s Mars Hill Church, including two 100-year-old stained glass panes.

5 – A high school teacher in Oregon was recently escorted from his school by police for objecting to the presence of Planned Parenthood in the school.

6 – Some gay activists up in Illinois actually threw concrete brick pavers through the glass doors of one Christian organization in an attempt to intimidate them…

Pro-homosexual activists attacked the Christian Liberty Academy early October 15th – throwing two large, concrete brick pavers through its glass doors with a hate-note attached– and then issued an online statement claiming responsibility for the crime. The attackers demanded that CLA “shut down” a banquet it was hosting later that evening for the “homophobic hate group,” Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH).

7 – All over the country people are being fired from their jobs for expressing their belief in the Biblical view of sexual morality.

8 – Street preachers all over America are being threatened with arrest just for standing on street corners and preaching the gospel.  Here is one recent example from Illinois

“I did pretty much the same thing: I preached about twenty minutes, and I handed out a few tracts,” Johnson explained. “[W]hen I got in my car to leave, … and as I was getting ready to start the car, the police zoomed up and turned on their lights, and told me to get out of the car.”

“They pretty much said the same thing,” he continued. “They said, ‘You’re not supposed to raise your voice or scare anybody and tell people they’re going to die.’ I said, ‘Well, what if that building’s on fire and I raise my voice and tell people if they don’t leave, they’re going to die? Is that wrong?’”

And the Southern Poverty Law Center is very open about who they consider the enemy to be.  The following are just a few prominent evangelical Christian organizations that the SPLC identifies as hate groups

The American Family Association

Concerned Women for America

Coral Ridge Ministries

Family Research Council

Anyone that is familiar with any of those groups knows that they are absolutely not hate groups.  In fact, they are filled with tremendously loving people.  The people that make up organizations such as those are the backbone of America.

But these days there are many liberal organizations that will label anyone that does not agree with them as a “hate group” at the drop of a hat.

In another report entitled “The Year in Hate and Extremism“, the Southern Poverty Law Center mentions the following individuals and groups…

Rand Paul

Chuck Baldwin

TeaParty.org

ConservativeDaily.com

Judicial Watch

The Oath Keepers

The truth, of course, is that all of those individuals and organizations are deeply patriotic and are trying to turn America around.  It is the SPLC that is the one that is filled with hate, and they clearly have a very deep hatred for anyone that does not agree with them.

Sadly, what is happening to evangelical Christians in America is just part of a larger trend that is happening all over the globe.  The following is from a recent Reuters article

About 100 million Christians are persecuted around the world, with conditions worsening for them most rapidly in Syria and Ethiopia, according to an annual report by a group supporting oppressed Christians worldwide.

Open Doors, a non-denominational Christian group, listed North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan as the three toughest countries for Christians last year. They topped the 50-country ranking for 2011 as well.

Persecution of Christians is on the rise, and it is probably only going to get worse in the years ahead.

Remember what happened in Nazi Germany.  There was a long program of demonization against the groups that the Nazis hated before they ever started to round them up and take them off to camps.

In the end, those that are now demonizing evangelical Christians will not just be satisfied with calling them names.  They ultimately want much more, and what we are witnessing now is just the warm-up act.

    Christians are fast becoming the Jews of modern times. In the UK, our dear leader has also been charged guilty in the media of seeking to destroy Christians.

    Can anyone say “the end times are nigh”?

  • Kukye

    Don’t you love it when the haters come out and start labeling the Christians as the haters???

    Like that number one hate group the SPLC? They hate anyone and anything that does not hate like them.

    Notice how the SPLC never hates the Muslims and their terrorist?

    As someone said liberals thrive on hypocrisy. They live by it.

    • Colin

      According to their website,

      “The Southern Poverty Law Center monitors hate groups and other
      extremists throughout the United States and exposes their activities to
      law enforcement agencies, the media and the public.” (Hate and Extremism)

      They don’t monitor such groups outside the US.

      • Veritae

        Great, a hate group monitoring other hate groups. Makes perfect sense. Oh, but they are not a hate group. Shhhhhh. Neither are we.

        • Philostratos

          Of course not. I expect the moral equivalents of the KKK and Al Qaeda to say that. But sensible people know better, and it won’t be long before you receive your well-deserved comeuppance.

    • THEanon

      Actually, both sides live on hypocrisy. Because EVERYONE, even god, is a hypocrite. He doesn’t even Listen to his own rules!

      • Dan

        shhh! Don’t be so angry; we’re co-creators with God. All iniquity will die when we realize God wants to fill the universe with beautiful replicas (us) of himself.

        • THEanon

          So technically that makes him egotistical and borderline narcissistic.

      • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

        lol what rules are you speaking of that you think God broke?

        • THEanon

          He doesn’t want humans to have jealousy right? Yet in the bible he said “for I am a jealous god”. That and they say “love thy neighbor” but if your a athiest you exclude them. Wouldn’t it make sence to tolerate their decisions, and respect that they don’t share their beleifes?

          Just sayin.

          • Cornelius

            He is what God means about being “jealous”. God is speaking of people making idols and bowing down and worshiping
            those idols instead of giving God the worship that belongs to Him alone.
            God is possessive of the worship and service that belong to Him. It is a
            sin (as God points out in this commandment) to worship or serve
            anything other than God. A little studying will go a long way to explaining things.

            Just saying.

          • THEanon

            So … That means I can’t worship Primus? Or Unicron?

          • thomas jefferson

            MY DEAR FRIEND,you need to study your bible more,it teaches you how to do things correctly,if you reject that, your life will really be a mess,as many americans have found out the hard way,and DON’T take the mark of the beast,its LUCIFERS wedding ring,and leads straight to hell…………………

          • Disapp

            You need prayer because Jesus died for your and my sins. We don’t exclude atheist, they exclude themselves. Why join a group that you do not share common interest? Christians don’t care about atheist sharing their beliefs with themselves and are invited to attend a fellowship. If they don’t want to hear preaching, then is not a Christian’s fault.

          • THEanon

            So … You’re saying that Christians can preach to atheists, but atheists can’t call Christians stupid? Okay, (sarcasm starts) that makes complete sense(end sarcasm).

            Also, what about Raptor Jesus? He went extinct for your sins!

            :P

          • Disapp

            Who is Raptor Jesus? Atheists are free to call Christians stupid and Christians are free to call atheists fools. According to Psalm 14:1, The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. You appear to hostile and I’m not hostile. I’m praying for you.

          • Philostratos

            Then throw away your computer, because that’s not the work of Bible-thumping scum, it’s the work of thinking people.

            Go pray for your non-existent friend to give you some wits, an education and a brain, Talibangelical.

          • THEanon

            But, what about the Internet? Couldn’t live without the Internet!

            XD

          • Disapp

            I didn’t call you a name; I quoted the Word of God. I feel sorry for you.

          • Philostratos

            You quoted from your Bronze Age rag that is in no way the “word” of your imaginary friend, delusional freak.

          • THEanon

            Google him you half wit, he’s way more interesting than Jesus.

            Okay, since you said I could:

            CATHOLICS ARE STUPI IDIOTS WHO HAVE THEIR HEADS UP THEIR BUTTS ALL DAY!!! WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP

            (V) ( 0,,,0 ) (V)

          • Disapp

            I feel sorry for you.

          • Philostratos

            I feel sorry for you that you don’t have a brain or an education, Taliban-like freak.

            Seriously, how stupid does one have to be to publicly expose that one has been brainwashed as a child?

    • Dan

      Don’t Republicans side with Saudi Arabia? Hypocrisy!

    • Nancy Shorts

      Maybe that is because both sides have haters.

  • Colin

    Michael, as an evangelical Christian, I don’t believe you are aware of how frightening your brothers and sisters are to other Christians and to other peoples. There was a recent poll, which was reported on Huffingtonpost.com, which revealed that a third of this nation believed that there should be one religion, Christianity, in this land.

    You say, Michael, that you believe that “…every religion has some followers that believe that their beliefs,
    customs and traditions are the only “right way” and that all others are
    practicing their faith the “wrong way,” seeing and believing that their
    faith/religion superior to all others.” This may be your belief; however, it doesn’t give you the right to impose your beliefs on others. And, this is where hate groups come in. They do believe that it is their mission to impose their beliefs on others, while protecting their members in a supportive community. They say calumniating comments about others.

    The place of judging and sentencing others for “false beliefs” Michael rests in the hands of Christ, on the day of the parousia. The power that you have as a disciple of Christ is, “If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” (John 20:23) For evangelizing, “And whoever may not receive you or listen to your words, go out of that house or that city and shake the dust off your feet.” (Matthew 10:14)

    I am not going to comment on your assertion that these groups are patriotic. I don’t know them personally, and, even at a distance, I feel uncomfortable with their teachings.

    And just who, exactly, were you expecting to be persecuted during the Tribulation? Apart from being lied to about Christians not being here during the Tribulation, you should be excited! I am!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jamie.ashley.967 Jamie Ashley

      Exactly Jason! Christians WILL be here….we are to let the Holy Spirit speak through US during this time of Tribulation. We are living in exciting times! Christ IS returning….and he will be returning in an ANGRY way… but He is not angry with his followers, just those who chose to follow satan. Actually, life will probably be a LOT better for us after He comes to deal with them for us!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tom-Brown/100001795000290 Tom Brown

        Very good Jamie. 2 Thess 2:1 speaks of our gathering to Jesus (rapture) and that it won’t happen until the apostasy and man of lawlessness is revealed. The church will go through the Tribulation and hopefully we will be a witness that will bring others to trust Jesus in those dreadful days.

        • Chris

          The tribulation isn’t for the salvation of christians. We already believe. The tribulation is for the salvation of Israel to bring them to belief in Jesus. The church is gone before the tribulation and raptures out. Snatched out if the way from sonething bad coming as the definition of rapture is. We’ll return in 7 years with Jesus at Armageddon to defeat evil. Who out there would beat up their bride before a marriage? Why would jesus want to beat up the church then and christians? Desiring to go through the tribulation is dumb to try and fulfill some kind of false humility or guilt. God saved us for a reason and not to go thru the tribulation with sinners. We who believe are sons of God. The antichrist can’t be revealed until the Holy Spirit stops restraining and holding him back. The Holy Spirit lives in all christians so we have to be gone before he’s revealed. 500 million to 1 billion believers would def resist the antichrist.

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            i totally agree though i believe it will be much less amount that go up in the first rapture than forseen, for Christ only said 1 of the 7 churches would, i see that as 1/7 of those who say they are Christian

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            trust me, i don’t want to go through the tribulation , but if I am left to go through it, I will have to try to be better according to what Jesus said for us to be like and when it comes to be my time to die, i shall not back down , i will not deny my Lord

        • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

          actually there is a pre-tribulational rapture, but it is not for everyone whom calls themselves Christian, when Jesus spoke to the 7 churches, only 1 church found favor in His eyes to be taken up and not have to go through the HOUR of TESTING = Tribulation, this is very clear that it means the tribulation and not the bowls of wrath for there will be no testing then but only destruction (Revelation 3:10) so keep in mind when this happens and if you are not one that goes up in this rapture that God expects more out of you

      • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

        not probably jamie, He has promised it will be!!!!

        • Philostratos

          Hahaha – you actually believe that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1124894434 Jason Whittington

    Dude, the end is here. If you bought the lie that the Church won’t be here for the Tribulation, well, surprise!

      You’re free to go to hell if you want, people who love Jesus and care about people’s souls have a right to let you know how serious it is that you’ve rejected the Word of God as the only blueprint back to God.

    You really think that 80% of the USA would be killed in a Christian Holocaust? Because of twitter and a few left-wing nuts, you really think that Christians are going to be rounded up, sent to concentration camps, and killed? So puerile.

    • RobsWalk

      Could happen, as a Christian im prepared to die for my beliefs, others arent

      • RobsWalk

        and you think 80% of the US is Christians? We as Christians and in Jesus’ would love that to be true

        • Hammerstrike

          I suspect 80% of christians (rough estimate) are politically correct first and christian second.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jamie.ashley.967 Jamie Ashley

            The majority of the ones I know certainly are. They only ‘claim’ to be Christians…and they feel that going to Church on Sunday and paying their tithes is sufficient…..but when it comes to standing up for Christian values that are spoke of in the Bible…that we are SUPPOSED to hold dear because Jesus taught them…they start backing up. Political Correctness has taken over the nation…. and most people, even the majority of Christians, are SO afraid of saying something that might ‘offend’ someone, they keep silent and let liberal immorality take over our nation. We wouldn’t want to be “unpopular” now, would we?

    • Angel Peace

      Well, Jews stayed in Berlin thinking the same exact thing, Ed. That they were German, so they were safe and nothing would happen to them. Many served in WWI, they served honorably and were among those that were gassed.
      Cambodians under Pol Pot’s regime of “re-education” didn’t see their bloody, fate coming.
      Chairman Mao didn’t telegraph his sinister intentions to murder 50 million of his fellow countrymen and no one realized what he was up to until it was too late.
      Same for Stalin and Lenin…
      As a Christian, I can honestly say that the hostility I have met lately is overwhelming and frightening. There is nothing childish or immature in feeling nervous or scared when one is attacked for their faith in a higher power especially when it is happening all the time. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you go pose as a Christian in public and see how you are received in this country…

      • Gay Veteran

        and how do you “pose” as a Christian in public? go around knocking on doors? yeah, you’ll get some hostility

      • Ed Lockwood

        Pol-Pot, Mao, and Hitler were all government figureheads who were dictators that could do what ever they so please. Not a few liberal activists who have misused the right to peaceable assembly and use violent protests in some situations. Before I “pose as a christian” as you describe, I’d suggest you understand it’s a lot more difficult to pose as a Muslim or a Jew or an Atheist that receives death threats from fundies and real Christian extremists. As a Jew, I can honestly say that the attacks on the UPC for having Jewish services and graffiti on Jewish centers in my hometown are disturbing. Violent religious persecution is not government enforced, it is performed by psychopathic bigots.

  • Humbrage

    I have no problems with Christians, just as I don’t have problems with those of the Jewish or Muslim faiths. When I start having problems is when members of a religion start inflicting their religious beliefs on others. My belief is you choose to follow which ever religion or philosophy that best suits you. But don’t think that you have the right or power to tell others to believe as you do. I don’t expect people to follow my philosophies, so I expect not to be told how to live my life. Live and let live.

    • Gay Veteran

      Poor fundamentalists. Losing your political power to impose your religion on everyone else.
      Fired because of your religion? Illegal in 50 states.
      Fired because of your sexual orientation? Legal in most states.

      • Veritae

        What, as to impose your ‘religion’ on anyone else? Nice try but you’re guilty of the very thing you wish to accuse. Have some nice parting gifts…nice try though to introduce an ‘ought,’ into what, ‘is.’ A nice example of a circular argument. Please feel free to actually prove what you are trying to assert. It makes the dialogue so much more interesting.

        • Gay Veteran

          And what “religion” am I imposing on anyone??? Forcing you to marry someone of the same gender? Sorry, you want theocracy then move to Saudi Arabia

          • Veritae

            Straw man… Besides, we’re all here today because the Founders ensured no provision for a theocracy or an ecclesiacracy. And based upon what often happens to SS participants in some countries that do, I don’t think either one of us would care to see a Saudi Arabian type of political system based upon their source of law.

      Post modernism at its best. Except, it leaves no criterion for distinguishing the truth. It’s a warm comfortable fuzzy ideology, but you cannot disguise relativism which is, itself, a self-defeating ideology. You, at some point, have to take a stand, even if you take this view which is itself, self-refuting. Either a belief is true, or it is not. You are going to have to, at some point, make a decision. Choosing not to decide, is still a decision.

      • Humbrage

        I choose not to believe in myths and fairytales. I choose to believe in facts and reality. I’ve made my choice. I don’t force that choice or belief on others; they’re welcome to believe anything they want.
        I don’t see your point, Veritae.

        • Angel Peace

          Humbrage – As a Christian, I do believe that you have the right to believe as you wish and no one should coerce you into thinking or believing anything you do not believe in. And that includes Christianity, we have no right to try and dissuade you from your Chosen Path.
          It’s a matter of basic respect and dignity for every person’s right to believe as they wish.

      I believe the Christians in those Churches were practicing their beliefs and if you didn’t want to believe as they did, you did not have to enter their church. But to THROW rocks and bricks through windows shows HATE and INTOLERANCE on the part of the gays in this case. Gays, Lesbians, and Transgenders only represent a mere 3% of the population….don’t you agree it is a little arrogant and BULLYING of them to attempt to re-define the religious meaning of MARRIAGE for the other 97% of the population? I agree that everyone has the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness under the Constitution of this nation…..I’m a Christian and I don’t agree with the lifestyle of homosexuals, but I also don’t feel that there should be any LEGAL recourse that supports my belief. I feel they have the rights, under the Constitution, to file joint tax returns, carry one another on their insurance, and secure property rights and inheritance rights….they can achieve all these goals by calling what they do a Legal Civil Union. I’m ok with that….but I don’t feel ANY group has the right to re-define marriage….this is a religious ceremony and defined by our Bible as being between a man and a woman. The government has NO business deciding whether marriage should be re-defined as there is SEPARATION of Church and State. I suppose my view is looked upon by Liberals as HATE and INTOLERANCE, but I, at this point, would like to see a little tolerance of MY views for a change.

      • Gay Veteran

        I agree, but there are more than 3% of us. I don’t dig our lifestyle either: when our brothers have a domestic quarrel, it often ends with one or both in the emergency room. But he who is without sin may throw the first stone–that too is punishable by death.

        So you don’t have a real job. What a surprise. Take it from the most despicable, immoral, uneducated and least intelligent people on the planet: Christian fundamentalism is correct.

  • Kim

    I used to be a Christian. Until I realized that the main problem with Christians was the people who professed this very faith. Interjecting their own interpretations into what the Bible actually says. For example: Tithing 10% to your local church is not a scriptural requirement nor should this even be something pastors say is required. Second: The concept that when people die that they will burn forever and be tortured in hell for all eternity this is unbiblical also. These are my two biggest complaints.

    • LDMack

      You make a very good point;

      You assumed that you realized that people were pulling a gnostic game with Bible interpretation. That should tell you something. You are assuming such is wrong and you are correct as well. Remember, if you are standing in the shadow of a hypocrite, they are closer to the light than you are. Forget what other people do. You are right about the tithing thing, Paul clearly wrote that we should tithe what we are able, and if we are able. So what is the problem?

      The concept of Hell is a common complaint. I’d like to address it if I may? First, Hell is not torture. The Book never uses the word. The word – torment, however, is used. There is a profound difference. Think about it: If God will not be present in Hell, then whom shall be doing the torturing?

      However, the absence of God in totality will serve as a basis of personal despair for many – torments. But you might think about what you mean by, “burn forever.” Jesus told a story of two men who died, one went to heaven and the other to “Hell.” The one in “Hell,” asked Abraham for a drink which could not be obtained. The man had a burning thirst of despair which could not be quenched. Not sure I agree with people running all over the place on fire.

      Oh, and a lot of people say a lot of things. So far, you’ve said some of the most right things I’ve yet to read here…

      Good evening.

      Yes whenever a Christian questions things in the bible they are backslidden. What a crock. I am rejecting the concept of God based on what man believes not God himself. Funny how you did not remark about what I commented on.

      Christians love to smugly proclaim their salvation while in secret they do bad backslidden things. If you are supposed to be a new creature once saved why do so many use the excuse about still being sinful? Life is hard enough without Christians adding the mantra that you are going to burn in hell for not believing. That you are going to be eternally tortured for acting exactly as God made you – a sinful creature.

      • Liz

        Kim, I would love to encourage you to continue to seek for truth in God’s Word. I am impressed that you have chosen to not go “man’s way” in your faith. I too, believe, that the tithe as it is preached in churches today is not Biblical. I also believe that hell is a real place, but that many who don’t choose faith in Yeshua will not burn FOREVER… (Malachi 4) Scripture seems clear that eternal torture is reserved for Satan and his demons. While the judgment causes those who didn’t choose faith in Him to die and be done with it. It doesn’t match Yahweh’s character to need to torture his created beings for all eternity.

        Keep searching for truth. Please don’t forsake your Creator because of the lies and traditions of men. Your Father loves you for wanting to search out the secret things. Be still and know that He is God.

        Even Jesus (Yeshua) fought against the traditions of men in his time here in ministry. Knowing His ways, His worship, His days… these all bring peace and wisdom in a world going mad.

        Know the truth y’all. It’ll set you free. No matter what persecution or fear-mongering comes… you will step up in love and serve the hurting world around you and that is what it’s all about.
        Thanks again, Kim, for questioning the status quo. It’s what we’re told to do in Acts 17:11

Supporting the elimination of lives deemed inferior or unfit to live. Support of socialist economic policies.

      • Gay Veteran

        Jonathan Zimmerman, an historian at New York University, wrote the claim that gay people helped bring Nazism to Germany “is a flat-out lie.”[9] Zimmerman, points out that “Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis arrested roughly 100,000 men as homosexuals. Most convicted gays were sent to prison; between 5,000 and 15,000 were interned in concentration camps, where they wore pink triangles to signify their supposed crime.”[9] He further notes, “To win their release from the camps, some gays were forced to undergo castration. Others were mutilated or murdered in so-called medical experiments by Nazi doctors, who insisted that homosexuality was a disease that could be ‘cured’.”[9] In addition, “Hitler authorized an edict in 1941 prescribing the death penalty—yes, the death penalty—for SS and police members found guilty of gay activity.”[

    Mark reports the Lord speaking in regard to persecution:

    But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations.

    But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

    Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    So, by the Lord’s testimony on the matter we can see it coming and we should prepare accordingly. The only thing about this that bothers me is that I don’t think He would want me to take out my pistol and send a few of them ahead of me….and that is vexing. Drats!!

      The organized churches must part ways with the exempt status so they can speak openly. Until that occurs, the government will have full control of what churches, preachers, pastors say to their people. That is already unconstitutional – government making, enforcing laws and rules to silence or shape church concepts.

    I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my Master and as my savior. When I truly want something, I ask in prayer with other Christians for what I want. If it is in accordance with Christian law as stated in the Bible, it normally happens for me. That makes me a slave to Jesus Christ when and if he comes back in my lifetime.
    Am I perfect? Not in this lifetime! I put my clothes on exactly the same way as everyone else. I am flawed like everyone else on this planet. I ask forgiveness when I screw up and try to make it right whenever I do.

    That being said, I believe you have the right to believe whatever you want to believe in this country. That is the way the Constitution was set up originally. It is being distorted by various groups.
    I also believe that those that lose their life to Christ gain their life and those that save their life will lose their lives. I believe that is in the Bible too.

    We, as a nation, try to make all religious beliefs neutral in our governing. The problem occurs when any one group attempts to make everyone forced to believe as they do.
    If you want to believe in a physical universe in which the Earth is the center of the Universe and is FLAT then by all means do so.

    If you want to believe that the Universe is 6,000 years old, please do so. No one has a right to stop you from believing whatever you want.
    I would go even further. I say if you want to pray where ever you are, you should have the right to do so.
    If you wish to express your beliefs, as long as it is not in a government building, then do so.
    A lot of people disagree. I personally find the stand in the schools to be ridiculous. You can take neutrality to extremes.
    I do not like lies. Whether it is a scientist lying or a so called Christian lying it is wrong.
    I do not like legislation telling a teacher that they must teach certain things, even if those things have since been proven to be not true.
    Evolution as taught by Darwin is one example. Our study of genetics proves somethings true and others false. It is complicated.
    The one thing about science is that what is thought true today will likely be proven false tomorrow. It is changing rapidly as we speak.
    Do gays have rights? I think they have the same rights as me. Nothing more, nothing less.
    Should they be allowed to marry? I think that is a matter of legal issues as much as religious issues. I am against being Gay. But that is my personal decision. Not a legal stand for the government to take one way or the other.
    I would be more concerned with diseases of any group that has multiple partners. That has consequences for all of us.
    Are their religious concerns? Yes. It quite clearly states in the Bible that there are concerns and our God considers it bad.
    What happens when Gays marry and then divorce? That is an entire legal field yet to be explored.
    Why are they gay? Is it a personal choice or is it biological?

    Should churches ber forced to marry gays? Not if it is against their religious beliefs. That is the whole idea of neutrality. Your right to practice your religion as you see fit as a religious leader should not be legislated away.

    The satanists that run humanity are trying to destroy christiananty to corrupt humanity so they can control them easier. They are doing this by making it look “cool” and “trendy” to bash christans, by making fun of them in the media (aka the thing they use to brainwash people) and by making christianity look as insane as bogus religions such as islasm.

    God loves everyone…it pains his heart when the wicked perish….He died on calvary’s cross for EVERYONE!!! so he says if you hear my voice do not harden you heart, but come to me all you who are heavy laden and burden and i will give you rest For all have fallen sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, that’s why Jesus who knew no sin became sin for us that through him we may become the righteousness of God…God does not want religion he wants relationship with you! That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised him from the dead YOU WILL BE SAVED!!! for it is with your mouth you confess and are saved, and with your heart you believe and are justified! what on this earth is so important that you would not choose Christ for?

    Unfortunately
    the Evangelicals are responsible for this attitude , they brought it on themselves and now run around crying like babies that everyone is abusing them because they are so good and “proper” and “nice”. The truth is they as a group
    are not so wonderful, most of them just want power over other people, they want to force their beliefs on everyone else by using political power. Also they wish to make America a third world country by denying scientific truths which stand all the tests of veracity.

    Most “born agains” are Republicans simply because they are greedy, stingy and have no concern or compassion for the poor.

    Christ would be horrified at what these bigoted, racist rodents do in his name. They actually believe that all they have to do is bleat out that they accept Jesus as their Savior and they get God waiting on them hand and foot for trillions of years. Anyone with a brain could never believe such nonsense,

    all religions of every stripe along with their man-written scriptures haven’t got a clue as to what God really is and God’s not in the business of making personal appearances. Of course Evangelicals feel God’s presence, talk to him, get instructions from him and it is all just real in their imaginations….and that’s ALL it is …Hallucinating.
    God or Jesus, despite being the “star of the show” has never appeared to a congregation no matter how much noise & hoopala they make.
    And he’s not going to appear, no Armageddon, no rapture…..not going to happen , not soon….not ever. So why don’t this bunch of disillusioned Hippocrates just try to really thank God for the one life they are going to get on this garden of Eden called Earth and learn to love and cherish one another? No, this smug bunch of starry eyed selfish self centered mean spirited narcissists are going to heaven but first they are going to rack up brownie points with God by sticking their nose in everyone else’s business supposedly on his behalf. Yes, we don’t like Evangelicals or Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons or Muslims or Scientologists or any other cult that wants to control our lives or our politics. You have brought on your unpopularity and our numbers are growing and we are fed up with you and your kind so get
    used to it. We don’t like you and niether does Christ.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jamie.ashley.967 Jamie Ashley

      Yes. Jesus DID suffer and die on the cross as payment for ALL our sins…even yours. We all sin…and God, knowing that we could not be perfect enough, loved us SO much that he sent his only son to suffer and die FOR us. It really IS that simple….once you are saved and belong to Jesus Christ you will WANT to live better, and DO better, and be more CHRISTLIKE…..but you cannot get to heaven by your good works, and you will NEVER be without any sin and therefor perfect enough to deserve heaven on your own merits. Thank God that we are forgiven in his name, and saved through his blood. No one wants to control you….God gives everyone free will and we all have a choice. Our job as Christians is not to judge….that is the job of God. Our job is to tell his amazing story and give as many as possible the chance to accept Him and His gift of eternal life. There IS an eternity….where you spend it is your choice…and God believes in YOU, even if YOU don’t believe in Him.

  • Piglet

    Don’t get too excited over a briefing in an Army Reserve unit. As someone who spent many years in the Reserve, I can tell you that most Reserve training is ill-prepared and worthless, something that was seconded by the general in command of the Army Reserve a decade ago. I suspect this briefing was locally generated and is not a standard for presentation Army-wide; otherwise it would have turned up elsewhere as well.

  • jaxon

    Michael, I usually enjoy the comments but I am not even going to read a few of them. I know fully what it will be filled with–the very evidence supporting your assertion. I bet there will be dozens of people hating, blaspheming and ridiculing Christians for their beliefs.
    Ultimately this has been in motion for quite a while. We have joked and kidded about “PC” ( political correctness) but the ned result is not funny.
    It is extremely “politically incorrect” to have any differing opinion or any semblence of morals or faith in our present time. I foresee a time approaching where we will see imprisonment or even persecution of those who do not espouse the trending lifestyles of homosexuality, beastiality etc…
    Even TLC channel and History channel runs shows about strange perversions and attempts to normalize them ( adults wearing diapers, people who are aroused by cars or machines, naked mannequin collections etc etc..just to name a few tame ones– shows which get graphic commercial time during normal history programs. Heck, even the ID channel has been getting really bad with all of the soft lesbo porn ( there were 2 straight days where I was flipping channels and saw scenes of naked ladies french kissing in bed while the narrator explained the eventual affairwhich led to a murdered husband.)
    Since I am rambling I will make a bold prediction. Thirty years ago homosexuality was considered a perversion and crime..simple fact, don’t shoot the messenger. Then the psychiatric institutes ( a godless liberal bastion of humanism if there ever was one) began to transform the view of homosexuality to ” a mental disease or disorder” later that disorder made its natural transition to ” born that way”- after all, these people are programmed that way in their very genes right? We must accept them and show compassion for them. Then it has become what it is now- a protected and powerful minority group that bullies the 98% of hetero’s.
    The prediction?……………We are already seeing the beginnings within the psychiatric, sociologists and psychologists worlds that pedophilia is a mental disorder or disease. It may seem far fetched at this time, however in 20 years we may see groups like NAMBLA with a powerful lobby and activists. We may not last that long as a society the way we are headed right now but the course is all too familiar. Who would have thought 30 years ago that we would allow a tiny % of people to completely bully the masses and even re-define marriage?–

  • Leigha

    I am very sympathetic to Warren’s loss, but to use him as an example here, I disagree. Warren is a false teacher, preaches a watered down gospel and has had very notable pastors speak out against because of his false teachigs. Before you bash me, look into it yourselves, and you will see. There is even an excellent documentary made about his erroneous teachings called “Church of Tares” on YouTube. As I said, I AM symphatgetic to his loss and I pray this loss may cause him to come back to the Truth of God’s Word, but to use him as an example here when the man clearly preaches another gospel is too far fetched. I digress.

  • http://twitter.com/1913Intel Matt

    The Bible did tell us that this was coming. It suggests that things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.

    Why is this happening?

    Modern liberalism basically says that we’re all equal – no better or worse. If you are better off – like the West or Israel – then you cheated. If you are worse off then you are a victim. Only evil can drive a society above the rest, since we’re all equal – by definition. And Christianity is the driving force behind the rise of the West. That means conservative Christianity is evil and must be transformed or enlightened.

    • Hammerstrike

      “And Christianity is the driving force behind the rise of the West.”

      Nope, it isn´t but it did not end the rise of the west either, unlike liberalism.

    • Philostratos

      I’m sorry, you’re not equal to anyone else, except maybe Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

  • Kim

    I don’t fel a bit sorry for the Christian evangelical movement in American, the Catholic Church or any other of these fraud religionists and claim they follow Jesus. Theyve earned all the animosity being hurled at them now. They’ve deviated from the true teachings of the bible long ago in exchange for God-dishonoring doctrines of the trinity, prosperity gospel, hell-fire and immortality of the soul. The scandals, child abuse prostitution scandals, money scandals — all sickening. These people are money grubbing shiesters and those who follow them are blind. It’s sad really.

    • Veritae

      I tried to reply to your two complaints last night, but for some reason got the moderator axe?? But tonight, you’ve got far more than two issues. I think however, you are a bit confused?

      In my opinion, the animosity stems largely from the fact the Christianity by and large has simply become a label for yet another moral system of ethics (and not a particularly desirable one by itself). C. S. Lewis warned that if this happened, there was going to be trouble. He was right.

      Your docket of complaints is legitimate, but Is it fair to judge the actions of everyone by the actions of a few? Perhaps returning to the founder and examining his life might reveal that you cannot necessarily judge by the actions of the followers if you’ve selectively chosen to only focus on the bad. It represents a formal logic fallacy, but it is, however, rather popular to do so.

      IMHO…

      • Philostratos

        “Evangelical Christianity” has become a label for the ethics of Iran, Saudi Arabia and other places Talibangelicals would like to turn America into.

    • LibertyDwells

      So you don’t believe in the Trinity, hell, the immortal soul or, obviously by extension, Salvation. But you seem to think there are true teachings of the Bible. It seems you may have a bit of conflict going on…

  • CorruptionInColumbia

    Perhaps this wouldn’t be an issue, if the Evangelical Christians were not and did not have a long history of acting like Muslims, and trying to crush any and every group who does not believe as they do. There is nothing wrong with Christians practicing their “faith” and beliefs, but it would do them wonders to understand that not everyone shares their faith and beliefs and to accept that.

    Going back to the days when they burned Witches or maybe longer, they have a pattern of trying to quash every group which did not think as they do, act as they do, say as they do. They try constantly to legislate their morality into law, regarding birth control, abortion, sexual activity and/or orientation.

    If they would learn to live and let live as Jesus seemed to have been trying to tell them to do, they might have greater acceptance.

    • Philostratos

      I disagree, they’re not trying to legislate their morality. They’re trying to legislate their immorality.

  • martae

    Yes, SPLC is demonizing Christians, and patriots, but the ACLU? The author gives no examples. The ACLU is not a civil rights group, it is a constitutional rights group. It’s just a shame they have forgotten the second amendment.

  • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/ Ted R. Weiland

    It was inevitable that the First Amendment’s provision for the freedom of religion (which enabled polytheism to thrive in America) would eventually take aim at monotheistic Christianity. This explains, in part, the Constitutional Republic’s selective persecution against Christianity.

  • Angel Peace

    If I leave a comment with the simple words, “God Bless” on most comment boards, I am verbally attacked and bullied. And it seems that the attacks are becoming more brazen, rude, cruel and just downright vile. I’ve had people try and kick me off the boards, I’ve had people try and get me to leave my faith, I’ve had people scream at me to prove God exists, I’ve been called so many vile names because I’ve written two simple words. The reactions are so bombastic that you would think that I had written something so horribly heinous that I should be jailed for it. In the past year, I’ve noticed this type of cyber bullying moreso than at any other time. I get the feeling that there is a group that absolutely has made it the goal to rid this country of anyone who believes in a higher power whether it be Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist or anyone else worshipping a God. They are actively going after Christians, but they will not stop with us just as Hitler did with Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Mentally Incompetent, the weak and feeble, the politically undesirable.
    Thank you for writing this article, I honestly thought I was being too sensitive when I kept getting bombarded with vile comments for simply writing God Bless. Whenever I say I am a Christian the insults materialize and the badgering and bullying commences. And most of the time, it doesn’t stop.
    In the end, it won’t matter and people will never be able to change my faith in God. Although, I never thought I would be persecuted for believing in my faith, at least, not in the US. I was very wrong on that account. Martin Niemoller’s poem was spot on and people should take heed, because once they come after everyone else, the only one standing is You. No one is truly safe in this type of atmosphere.
    God Bless…

            “Your killing yourselves”? And your [sic] killing the English language. I don’t think it’s humanly possible to be even more immoral, uneducated and ignorant than a Talibangelical.

    My main worry is what’s going to happen to the State of Utah? I saw the Fundamentalist Mormons on that list and I’m hoping it doesn’t include the mainstream Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints based in Salt Lake City that forbids the polygamy practiced by the Fundamentalist group. In Utah, something like 60% of the population including myself are LDS, so if the government suddenly decides Mormons are a “hate group” or some other nonsense, they would have an absolute field day in Utah.

  • BG

    It didnt take long enough for this type of thing to happen. In what way are evangelical christians not extremists? They blow up churches, picket/harass funerals, say that being gay is a disease, say that women should keep a baby after they’ve been raped, etc.

    However, I dont believe that ALL evangelical christians believe these things. In the same vein that all Muslims are not terrorists.

    I am a Jew, and I am very happy that the Jewish Defense League is on this list. Why? Because they are not representative of what being Jewish is, they are bad for Jews and the world at large. It is time for christianity to live up to its true potential, and figure out what practical good it can do for the world, practical good being something that directly helps EVERYONE, not just evangelical christians and their constituents. Is that not what religion is for?

    Its time to wake up, stop complaining, and figure out how to adapt to modern times. You’re not the only people struggling to do this. I see many religions struggling. You’re just moving the slowest.

It is time for humans with a brain to realize that if you subscribe to modern day religions you are no more than a cult member. The extent of which I don’t have the space to go into here in this forum.

    If you people out there in La La Land actually believe there is going to be a God that will come down and save your royal rear ends, you really do need to get your collective heads out.
    Stop being so stupid…… GOD INDEED?

    If you bother to educate yourselves, you will find out that YOUR GODS are no more than other worldly visitors who manipulated our DNA. They are not gods, but at the time were thought to be. Read some books on what is being discovered in the middle east about our ancient history. The more you begin to understand about who and what we are, the larger the picture of our genetic heritage comes into view.

        The veteran and I don’t want this! Maybe we are born with it; and that’s why I go to church. I know I’m a sinner! And that’s why the price of redemption was so high–it was for people like the veteran and myself. All y’all righteous folks don’t need Jesus, just remember to use extra long twigs for your marshmallows.

          we all need Jesus, and just because you are a homosexual don’t condemn you , you can turn from the wickedness and repent, and that’s bologna that you were born like that, no one is born like that, that’s a huge lie

            Hey, Bro I ask forgiveness.  I’ve never “done it” and I don’t like it!  If not born with it, I have had to fight this demon since the earliest of childhood.  I’m open  to any tips to turn me to girls.  How do you deal with your sins/demons?  I know you have them; all are born short of the mark.

          • Gay Veteran

            sad, very sad. you need to understand that not all Christians believe the same way

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            this is because all are not TRULY Christians , they all just claim by their own words to be Christian, but if they don’t live completely to how the bible states that a Christian is or more specifically how Jesus was, then they are not a TRUE Christian

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            They are then as the bible state “wolves in sheep clothing”

            your arrogance is amazing

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            well, this has to be done from your own freewill, if you talk to Jesus through prayer to ask forgiveness and change this is the first step, just like they say in AA, first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, and the bible was given to us to let us know what God expects from us(what is right and what is wrong) never take someones word for it, always go to the bible for the answers for there are many that claim to walk right or say they are doing things for God and are doing it all wrong, they are just as human as you and me, we fail all the time, even after you receive salvation from Jesus, we still fail, but by studying God’s word and exercising what He tells us how to live and be and actually doing that, then we will feel the Holy Spirit draw us closer to Jesus and being more like Jesus, this is a spiritual matter, but we will always have this human “demon” as you say fighting against us, this is a constant fight to the end till Jesus comes back. I hope this helps

          • http://www.facebook.com/chris.bryan.94 Chris Bryan

            as far as turning you back to girls, that can only happen through time and healing, for the only reason i could see why you wouldn’t like girls in that way , would be cause of experiences you may have gone through in your childhood, i don’t know what they might be cause i wasn’t with you, so i could not possibly attempt to treat you in that way, all i can say is to accept the factor that its in your mindset and to pray to Jesus to help you through this, Jesus can do wonders, He is in control of everything but sometimes He just wants us to want it and ask for it sometimes, and He don’t always respond right away, sometimes He wants to see how bad we want it, how long can you endure asking for help

            The way to deal with your demons is to confront them and conquer them. Pray to God for protection, belive you are protected and loved, with honest faith you attain true fearlessness and this is how you defeat the demons of sin, as they thrive on your fears.

    Evangelical Christianity has all the radical elements of a terrorist group. The rest of this article represents such a small sub- section of events, that it is a non-article.

    What’s also disturbing is the way Christian churches are turning into social clubs instead of a place to worship.

It’s not the media. It’s the Christians. As Ghandi said, I love your Christ. I hate your Christians.

He created man and woman to be happy and rejoice in his presence! Not for what the world has become today. You can just ask for forgiveness ONCE!! And he will forgive you!

I have seen many of these types that say they are holier than thou insult and mistreat others to the point that they turned away from church. These so called Christians are false Christians but yet there are so many of them in this country that spew hatred toward people for misfortunes that are not their faults. I have heard these same people say they think people are poor because of bad choices when they have no clue why that person is poor. They say they worship Jesus but Jesus did not believe in this. I believe that this is why so many people hate Christians.

    The American Dream has been destroyed by non other than evangelical Christians who groveled over those 30 pieces of silver while upholding themselves as being holier than thou. It is no secret that the KKK had close connections with southern “Christians” and credit should be given to those who stood up against such inhumane injustice. Evangelical “Christians” are not hated for what they believe, but are merely recognized for their hatred of anyone who does not adhere to their totalitarian, politically corrupt blasphemy of using God to advance their self serving, class based, hierarchical cult.

  • JRSG

    What hypocrysy! Evangelical’s have been spewing hate and vitriol against other religions with whom they disagree and are now claiming to be persecuted because they are labeled extremists. Evangelical’s are a hate group. They spread lies and twist information to further their agenda. They use scare tactics and shock tactics to get people’s attention and then lie about whatever group they are targeting. They stand outside buildings of other religions and carry signs of hate and false information. They go to funerals of those they hate and disrupt it as much as possible (Westboro Baptist Church is a prime example – they go to military funerals and funerals of other religions leaders whom they hate.) They go to weddings of other religions and call the brides whore, prostitute, and the grooms pimps. They try hard to disrupt the weddings and anything else they can.

    Evangelical’s are not hated for what they believe, as stated in the above article. Evangelical’s are not hated for believing in Jesus. People are finally realizing that Evangelical’s use hate tacticts against those whom they disagree with, with whom they have a differing religious theology. So yes, Evangelical’s are extremeists. An Evangelical lady persecuted me, harassed me, and treated me like I was dirt from the time I was twelve years old to when I graduated high school. And she even harassed me when she saw me when I was visiting in my home town. How Christian of her!. So, when Evangelical’s shut down their over seven hundred (over 700) so called non-profit “counter cult” ministries (which they make good money doing) including what is on the internet and television, viciously attacking other religons, then maybe they will quite being called extremists and a hate group.

    Evangelical Christians are extremists and should be labeled as hate groups.

    I am a Christian and I see the hatred from Christians. It is in the political arena where it is at it’s worst. I think a large portion of Christians are being deceived by false information and the venom that is spewed out of their mouths makes me cringe. Christians are suppose to be a light in the world and now many are doing everything contrary to the teachings of Christ. Horrible example to non believers. Why would they ever except Christ as their savior to be like these hateful Christians? Don’t mistake hatred towards Christians as biblical prophecy as these Christians are not being good servants and messangers of the Lord.
