Our christian brothers and sisters around the world are feeling the persecution.  But I would say, we too are feeling it here in the US but in a much more subtle, deadly way.  We are slowly being told we can not be open with our faith, we have to be guarded with our views, as the very mention could “offend” someone, or cause unforeseen consequences.  I hope we can stand strong, and not bend to the pressure.

On a side note, it always amazes me that in the public debate, that in christian nations, any religion can be practices without persecution, but in Islamic nations, only Islam can be practiced.  That is never noted.  Who is truly tolerant?  Tolerance doesn’t mean you have to agree, just allow the practicing of the religion.
