Why Silencing Christians
Will Continue
WASHINGTON, DC, April 24, 2014 -- The number of subjects we cannot talk about in public discourse are rapidly multiplying. The older notion of “free speech” as a search for the truth through reasonable argument is being replaced. We no longer want to hear speech if it “offends” someone’s feelings or self-defined identity. We would rather “just get along” than to have to decide about the truth of any issue or confront the consequences of its violation.

Vatican to UN: More than 100,000
Christians Killed for Their Faith Each Year

QUEENS, NY, May 29, 2013--For reasons I’ve discussed before, elite opinion in the West is uncomfortable with the idea of Christians as a persecuted minority. At least since the Enlightenment, Western intellectuals, as a class, have seen traditional Christians as adversaries to be resisted, not victims to be rescued. The idea that in some circumstances Christians might actually be victims complicates the narrative in unpleasant ways. 


- The head of Italy's new religious liberty watchdog group warned that present threats of “discriminatory legislation” in the U.S. could eventually result in violence against Christians in America.

Interracial Marriage Bans Were About Eugenics,
Not Redefining Marriage
Claimed "Fundamental Right to Marry" is Bogus

People defending the reality of marriage often have difficulty responding to claims that excluding same-sex couples from marriage is similar to the bans on interracial marriage that were in place in some U.S. states as lated as 1967.  From the cases overturning those bans, those advocating for the redefinition of marriage alsofalsely claim that the courts established a fundamental right to marriage that applies to same-sex couples. What is going on is another attempt to confuse people about the redefinition of marriage, trying to claim discrimination against same-sex couples is similar to discrimination against interracial couples seeking marriage. This is a scurulous distortion and cover up of one of the most ugly eras in American history.
