Jerry Marszalek, a football coach in Michigan, has lost his job after allowing an assistant to pester Muslim students into becoming Christians. As you can expect, the professional Christian set is not happy about the development and have decided to spin it as yet another act of persecution – against Christians.
According to an article on the Christian Newswire condemning the “persecution”, Christian persecution in America has taken on several forms. One of these forms is “a rising intolerance for proselytising”.
In recent years, Christian persecution has taken on a variety of forms in the United States—from a rising intolerance for proselytising to the eradication of nearly all historical Christian references in public school textbooks.
Yes, you read that right. You are not allowed to tell a Christian recruiter to leave you alone. If you do so, you are persecuting that Christian. They have a god given right to annoy and it’s your job to sit in gracious silence when they start prattling on about the Jebus.
So the next time you hear one whining about big bad atheists being oh so mean to them, remember that they think that anything but complete silence is persecution.
