GUEST,Musket curious BS: Christian Persecution (2040* d) RE: BS: Christian Persecution 28 Sep 13


I suppose atrocities committed yesterday have less excuse than those committed in the past.

Otherwise pete's question could be answered in terms of the crusades, inquisition and the British Raj method of dealing with those refusing to see the supremecy of Christianity, tying them to the mouths of cannons.

Yes. There is always going to be one cult that is oppressed more than any other. Bringing attention to suppression and persecution of just the one though runs the risk of it being seen as more worthy than the rest, pissing off their oppressors all the more and leading to further, I believe the popular term is martyrdom.

My main concern is that raising this fits in with the efforts of Christians and their leaders to regain the influence they once had in Western societies. I would be more sympathetic to armchair Christians raising it if they didn't keep trying to confuse religious freedom with religious privilege.
