I saw a blog the other day while surfing Blogmad that complained about the current "persecution of Christians" in this country.
What persecution of Christians?
Christians made "Happy Holidays" a curse word a few months ago. Bills were introduced into Congress requiring the respect of Christian symbols. And "The Book of Daniel" was cancelled after two episodes as a result of Christian protests.
In Washington, DC, a 9th grade art teacher was suspended for suggesting that his advanced students who interested in pursuing their education in art take life drawing classes. You know, drawing nudes.
He never said, by the way, that his students had to take the classes, nor that they shouldn't tell their parents. He simply recommended the classes.
Well, naturally, everyone freaked out because their darling children might see boobies, buttocks or penii; and a highly respected art teacher could lose his job.
At one time in our history, Christianity was the driving force behind art. Now, Christianity has adopted the model of Islam and is beginning to prohibit depictions of the human body. Before long, getting into the National Gallery of Art will require an ID, and no minors allowed!
The only persecution that is going on involving Christians is just their persecution of anything they dislike.
