Op-ed piece on Fox today from Douglas MacKinnon expressing his fear that soon he may have to go underground in America because he is a Christian. Normally, I wouldn’t give this guy the time of day; he’s the one who once suggested that Southern states should secede from the union because of same-sex marriage, and name their new territory “Reagan.”
To the point of the article, however: MacKinnon is not alone in his belief that Christianity is being oppressed and persecuted here in America. We have had the same concerns expressed here. MacKinnon does the usual conflation of persecution of Christians in the Middle East with the experience of Christians in America, equating the violence over there with Christianity being “mocked, belittled, smeared, and attacked” here in America. He laments that while we are still a majority Christian nation, Christians are fearful of saying “Merry Christmas” anymore, and warns believers that it is only a matter of time before they are attacked for their faith. He suspects this is partly due to the fact that many Americans now associate Christianity with the right in general, and Donald Trump in particular.
As a Christian living in the United States, do you feel attacked? Persecuted? Oppressed?
