Christian Persecution Complex

Christian Conservatives are now suing for the right to discriminate.

I think this was the most telling comment from the article:

By equating homosexuality with race, Baylor said, tolerance policies put conservative evangelicals in the same category as racists. He predicts the government will one day revoke the tax-exempt status of churches that preach homosexuality is sinful or that refuse to hire gays and lesbians.

“Think how marginalized racists are,” said Baylor, who directs the Christian Legal Society’s Center for Law and Religious Freedom. “If we don’t address this now, it will only get worse.”

Well, yeah, duh, because they should be marginalized just like racists are because it’s the same prejudice, backed up by the same misused book that these same bigots tried to use to deny civil rights to non-whites and women. A shame that bit of self-discovery (that they’re being treated the same) hasn’t penetrated their consciousness to show them that they’re wrong.
