George Will can piss me off from time to time, but he is thoughtful and frequently makes some good points. In today's column, he says something that I have been trying to argue to my parents for months: Christians ARE NOT
persecuted in this country."[Christians'] persecution complex is unbecoming because it is unrealistic".
Some honesty about this would be nice. I think that if modern Christians were to simply study what life was like under Emperor Nero, they would realize how good they have it. No Lions. No Crucifictions. No being covered in pitch, put on a stake, and set on fire to light a garden party. Living in a state that will only sanction and pay for some
religious activities is not the same thing. This whore of babylon is drunk on different blood.
