Take a look at this: Persecution.org
I have dearly-loved family members who became born-again Christians sometime in the 1980s. I didn’t know how to act around them for a couple of years. Seemed like they were mad all the time. Then, things got better and they seemed pretty much back to normal.
But over the last five years, I started hearing them talk about how they were persecuted. I was like “huh?” There’s a Christian church every five blocks. And if there isn’t a Christian church then there is a mosque, temple, or other house of worship.
As far as I can tell, these kinds of Christians feel persecuted because other people won’t act like they are told to act.
So, here we have this website persecution.org. I found it tonight when following the story of a man who was jailed for holding Bible Study in his home. Although I am not a Christian, I believe that people should be able to hold any kind of meeting they want in their home.
Turns out that wasn’t the real story. The man who was jailed built an unsafe building and has been crowding 80 people at a time into it for what he calls “Bible Study.” He is actually operating a church from a building that he promised not to use as a church. He was cited and properly advised by the city to stop using the building illegally, but he refused to stop. So, now he’s in jail.
That’s OK with me. What is the matter with these persecution people that they have to reach for bogus stories like this? Seems like there isn’t enough real persecution, eh?
Take a look at their financial statement here.
