The Unfair and Unconstitutional Persecution of Conservative Christians

flag-and-bibleI think it’s time someone finally takes a stand to defend this group of people who for too long now have faced public ridicule, inequality, and have had their constitutional values trashed.  We live in a society where it’s unfair that millions of Americans are denied their constitutional rights, while enduring intense hate and judgement by so many simply because of who they are.

It’s time we put an end to this unconstitutional persecution of conservative Christians.

Every day they face unfair criticism simply because of their lifestyle.  Millions of people demand that they adhere to a certain definition of “family” or “marriage” based on beliefs that they do not share.

Their right to be themselves, without fear of discrimination for who they are, is under constant attack by those who seem determined to violate one of the most important parts of our Constitution – the First Amendment.

Because without that freedom of religion, who knows what kind of dark hole this country might spiral down into.  Imagine a day and age where millions of Americans are forced to obey laws and rules based on a religion they don’t follow or believe in.

It is unfair, and unjust, to say to these people who love their family that their feelings are not valid because we do not accept their views on what they believe constitutes a family.

We cannot continue to say we’re a nation built on freedom and liberty for all while we continue to say to millions of people, “You are not equal.  You are not accepted by society.  Your lifestyle is an abomination to everything for which this country stands.  Because we disagree with what you feel constitutes a family, we’ll seek out the passage of laws to define what constitutes a family.”

Enough is enough!  This horrible and unconstitutional persecution against conservative Christians simply because we do not agree with the way they live their lives must stop.

Oh wait, my mistake.  That’s actually what conservative Christians do toward homosexuals and anyone with which they disagree.
