Happy Hour News Briefs
Dear President Trump,
I cannot believe I’m writing to Penthouse Forum. Oh, wait.
I thank God every day that you are my president. Tens of thousands of other pastors do too.
Thousands of us have sacrificed our standing in our denominations. Some have been fired from our congregations for supporting you. We have suffered in many ways, but our families have suffered the most…
I never thought this would happen to me… Oh, wait.
Today’s media apparatus do to Christians what they did to African Americans years ago.
Sweet Jeebus, just stop. Right there.
Christians in this country are pursued and attacked by government and fake news in tandem.
And the author drones on and on, listing fake news item and conspiracy theories as proof of their persecution. Here’s a small sample, in the author’s own words:
- the Houston 5 Pastors who were sued for opposing bathroom laws- that would have been required to be enforced inside Churches
- the persecution of pastors who support a wall on the southern border of the United States
- radical activists in America to make Biblical preaching unlawful hate speech
Oh, and now they are turning on the Jews:
What they see as persecution is that they no longer feel that they can call minorities, gays, women, and yes, Jews the words that they want to use.
They can preach all the hatred that they want inside their churches (and they do), but they cannot use their indoor voices outdoors anymore. Pity the poor KKKlansman who gets chased down the street after one of their rituals is what he is actually lamenting, or that the Phelps family when they show up with their hateful signs at funerals gets counter-protested, or that no one cheers them on when they bomb the women’s health clinic or kills the doctor.
These are people who would compete to be the person to nail that filthy hippie to the cross and brag about it afterwards.
