Yeah, unless our evangelical puritanism is the only religion, we’re oppressed.

Such victims.

Next weekend my former denomination is “celebrating” Religious Liberty Week, or some such designation. And yes, it’s all about them being ‘free’ to be and say whatever they want because it’s their religious beliefs.

While suppressing others?

This lines right up with the GOP attitude of “Mr President either do whatever we want or you aren’t bi-partisan and are, in fact a divisive socialist, fascist, nazi, arrogant, unconstitutional, non-citizen anti-Christ”.

Same thing with lots of your vocal far right nut jobs. Losing an election mean it was fixed. A law passing you don’t like means the President is a dictator and you should violently revolt.

Is it really that hard to figure our the whole “Do unto others” thing? How about an even easier version “Don’t do unto others what you wouldn’t want done to you”.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

“Outsized Evangelical Angst.”

And we all know how painful that can be.

Dr Butthurt is working on a ‘Miraculous Unction’ for it as we speak.

If it lasts for more than 4 hours, seek medical treatment

The problem with religious head cases is that they possess unsubstantiated
righteousness in being prejudiced with respect to unbelievers.
As Bill Maher said after an interview with the clear thinking Richard Dawkins.
It’s time to have “The God Delusion” in hotel rooms.(replacing Gideon’s)
It’s a lot less boring and fanciful than the ” Holey Babble”

Their constant whining about “religious freedom” and their “fearful” outlook for the next five years says to me that maybe the evangelicals are not as certain about the “supremacy” of their brand of Christianity as they would like us to believe. This is great news!

Evangelicals seem to forget that without the religious freedom provisions of the Constitution, they would have been persecuted. That’s what annoys me the most about modern Evangelicals how they want to ignore how much their ancestors suffered under states where church and state were one but want to bring that back now that they’re large in numbers. And on a personal note, it annoys me when Catholics do it too, cough Penal Laws.

Some of this goes all the way back to colonial times.

The “religious freedom” sought by a significant block of the immigrants (e.g., the Puritans of Massachusetts) was the freedom to persecute others on religious grounds in ways that were becoming unacceptable to English authorities.
