What if it is? What if the government is slowly, but surely, chipping away at our rights until it can say, "You can't be Christians anymore,"?
Take a stroll through history. It was done in the decline of the Roman Empire, it can be done again. Ask a person on the street what defines Christians and they will likely say that Christians hate gays. That is all that too many people know about Christians, that they disapprove of homosexuality.
That is not what the mainstream media says Christians are, and the mainstream media makes the truth in America, at least for many people.
In ancient Rome, Christians were a threat because they didn't worship the emperor. Today, Christians are a threat because they do not take everything the government and its cronies say as absolute truth.
Be in the world, but not of the world.
