More Persecution of the Christian Minority

Err, majority. Yeah, that’s right.

This World Net Daily link to a FOX “News” story is entitled, “Airmen Say U.S. Air Force Punishing Christians.” To quote:

“There is an atmosphere of intimidation at Lackland Air Force Base,” said Steve Branson, the pastor of Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio. “Gay commanders and officers are pushing their agenda on the airmen. There is a culture of fear in the military and it’s gone to a new level with the issue of homosexuality.”

Branson tells me at least 80 airmen attended a private meeting at the church where he heard them voice their concerns about religious hostilities at the Air Force base. It was a standing-room only crowd.

“The religious persecution is happening,” the pastor said. “It’s getting bigger every day. Gay and lesbian airmen can talk about their lifestyle, but the rest have to stay completely quiet about what they believe.”

Ah yes, it’s ’cause of The Gay. I think I should give my standard statement on this again: Replace “gay” with “black.” Or “Chinese.” So, “Black airmen can talk about their lifestyle, but the rest have to stay completely quiet about what they believe.” How ludicrous does that sound? Very. If you want to be a bigot, you’re going to be punished in an organization that does not allow you to be a bigot.

Of course, the nearly 100 commenters have a different view than I. Let’s just take the top-rated one by “Annette”:

There should be a huge public outcry about this! They need to have all kinds of pressure put on them from the outside. Those who don’t have anything to lose (ie. are not in the military) should be writing letters, protesting, and doing whatever it takes to show these bullies that their INTOLERANCE is not acceptable!

Christians are so used to just being quiet and letting this kind of thing happen. Why is it that we are in this situation now? Because the homosexual movement has been so vocal and persistent. I think they need a little bit of their own medicine.

Yeah, intolerance. Uh huh. And Christians used to “being quiet and letting this kind of thing happen”? Seriously? Really? I think a reality check is needed.
