  •  I recently had a lecture on the subject ... (0+ / 0-)
    What is it about white Christian males that gives them such a persecution complex?
    ... from a white South African who emigrated here a number of years ago and is a member of my church.  His specific point was, "Christians in America are persecuted," and his first example out of the barrel was that kids in school can't form an extracurricular Bible study group without getting permission from school authorities ... a condition which I suggested applied to every other group that wants to meet on school grounds.  

    Some people don't seem to understand the difference between lack of favoritism and actual persecution.
