A moment of clarity in young Joel's evangelical thread

my original point was that it’s an exaggeration to compare Christians in America to what happened to the Native Americans.

You guys are shifting the focus to how a Gov. filled with Christians should run a country. The fact is that our country is very kind to Christians. They can own large corporations, they can live, eat and work anywhere they want. They can practice religion how they want. They can hold the highest positions in government (something that atheists can’t do), they can get an education (even in private schools that teach some rigid beliefs), etc. So how are Xians today (that make up the vast majority of the US) like the Native Americans?

I find it odd that a site called “stop lying to us” is making such an incorrect comparison.

Fross doesn't seem to get the Christian = persecuted victim thing and just because they say "stop lying to us" does not mean they are not going to lie to themselves and lie to others.  Wake up Fross!
