Yes, Christians do come in for special abuse these days. If you say anything negative toward Jews, you're an anti-Semite. If you make a comment against Islam, you're an infidel. If you don't agree with homosexuality, you're a gay-bashing hater. If you say anything that goes against the grain of political correctness, they'll find some way to make an example out of you.What I think is sickening is the fact people can bash Christians all day long, and no one will say anything. However you say something about negative about gay people, and everyone is ready to hang you. Being a Christian is almost more low respecting then being gay. Everyone is fine with someone being gay, but if some one is a Christian and try's to live a Godly life with morals and beliefs then there is something wrong with you. I'm A Christian, and I am proud of it. I believe in God, and that he sent his only son to die for our sins. The Bible is very clear on what a sin is, and I believe that it is the Holy Word of God. I live by faith, and I don't need anyone to tell me otherwise!
But it hurts me to see too many Christians portrayed as Bible-thumping, intolerant hypocrites.
To some degree it is unfortunately true. But there are others who do try to follow the word of God, who try to adhere to Jesus' wisdom, and impart that love to others the best we can.We're still going to make mistakes, we're still going to screw up, we're still going to fall far short of God's expectations, we're still going to stumble around the same blocks, and if only for God's grace and the sacrifice Jesus made do we stand any chance of making it.
