Christians being oppressed by gays

'It really is all about religious liberty for us,' says leader of Methodist group

Anyone who doubts that homosexuals are abusing Christians and perverting the nation's laws need only look at examples like the ones below:

* A Christian photographer was forced by the New Mexico Civil Rights Commission to pay $6,637 in attorney's costs after she refused to photograph a gay couple's commitment ceremony.

* A psychologist in Georgia was fired after she declined for religious reasons to counsel a lesbian about her relationship.

* Christian fertility doctors in California who refused to artificially inseminate a lesbian patient were barred by the state Supreme Court from invoking their religious beliefs in refusing treatment.

* A Christian student group was not recognized at a University of California law school because it denies membership to anyone practicing sex outside of traditional marriage.


All these examples are from the article above.

I doubt Alexander uses the King James version.

He probably uses the NIV, or an even more removed version than that.

Truly though - did Jesus ignore those who were sinners in his eyes or did he reach out to them again and again?

After nearly two thousand years of cultural and political dominion, Christians are now the victim of oppression. The forces of oppression against Christianity are atheism, Islam, homosexuals, erotica, proponents of reproductive choice and proponents of scientific fact. According to Christians, any social or political theory or action that does not support Christian dogma is "oppressive" and intended to disenfranchise Christians of their social, legal and political standing. Nonetheless, Christians are still a dominant force in the West, with over 70% of all Americans claiming to be Christian, and many Christian zealots in political, financial and social positions of power. It remains a mystery how the majority can be oppressed; this is only further proof that anyone can play the Victim card.

That's right. Christians are being oppressed. Don't oppress a Christians right to oppress others.

lol

Christians aren't really being oppressed. They're just being told to keep their hands to themselves and play nice. That's all.

Really? Christians aren't being oppressed? You apparently believe all media, and don't read anything outside of your hollywood fantasy land. No one should be forced to disobey their religion, if you are fired, or fined for obeying your faith, and that doesn't hurt anyone else in doing so, you are oppressed. Christians are the MOST oppressed people on the face of the earth. In all countries from China to Sudan, we are tortured, raped, enslaved, and this has been constant, and committed by all religious groups, including atheism. So continue your hate campaign in your ignorance. A majority is oppressed in an oligarchy, when the minority rules the majority. That is America today.

I say to you nonchristian oligarchs that seem to come here to the most tolerant nation and religion, and then spit in their faces. "Keep your religion and hands to yourself"
If a doctor doesn't want to do something that conflicts with their religion, and that another doctor out there will do. That is THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT. It isn't oppression, it is the original idea of the first amendment. Keep your government out of our religion, and if you think that means that most americans who are christian can't take part in government, you support tyrannical oligarchy. Remember, that the founding fathers, who are taken out of context by your horrible people so you can oppress religion in america, held church services in the capitol. Seperation of denomination and state, not church. Get out of america fascist mao!

really? Christians are being oppressed? well look at it this perspective:how about all the years that Christians have hated the homosexuals just because of their own ignorance in their religious beliefs. I as a Catholic found this appalling because it completely ludicrious to be complaining about CHristians being "oppressed by gays" when CHristians and everybody else have been oppressing the gays as far as history goes back.Do not blame anything on the gays and get over yourselves. you see why these people lost their jobs?? because they lacked a certain sense of professionalism that is expected. God loves all his children regardless. God is forgiving to all. If you really search in the Bible you will see that it says nothing about homosexuals is wrong it particular other than sex outside of marriage. But hey if gays are going to Hell then so am I... sure it isn't perfectly saintly but it is not hurting anybody. Love is love. Why can't you ignorant self righteous see that? what does it matter if it is love between a man and a man or a woman and a woman? it was the way they were born. i say that what happens in their bedrooms is their own business. they are as much if a person as anybody else and i know many homosexuals because a lot of them are very much better people then i will ever be. i see gay people as just that: people. so please before you open your mouth to complain remember all the pain that our religion has caused them and please, i urge you, to remember that gays are wonderful and their orientation should have nothing to do with how you treat them.
