Christians cry persecution once more!

One of the most laughable things Christians say (yes I know, I have a lot to choose from) is “Help we’re being persecuted in the US!” If you don’t know why that’s laughable, then you’re probably not from the United States, or else you’ve been living under a rock since Columbus discovered the Americas. I’m astounded by the latest video that the religious right tallies up as “one more war on religion speech”. If you haven’t seen it already (it’s gone fairly viral in the last few days) it involves Dan Savage giving a speech meant to discount the biblical argument against homosexuality. In it he says: “We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people the same way we have learned to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation. We ignore bullshit in the Bible about all sorts of things.” and then the Christians walk out on him. I repeat: THE CHRISTIANS WALK OUT ON HIM! Are they really offended that he insulted the way their holy book talks bout shellfish? Is this why they cry persecution? Check the video out if you haven’t already, and see for yourself why this is so laughable a concept.
