Christian persecution in America?

The New York Times cultural critic Frank Rich takes on the notion that Christians are persecuted in today's edition:

As Mr. Gibson shrewdly contrived his own crucifixion all the way to the bank, trumping up nonexistent threats to his movie to hype it, so the creation of imagined enemies and exaggerated threats to Christianity by "moral values" mongers of the right has its own secular purpose. The idea is to intimidate and marginalize anyone who objects to their efforts to impose the most conservative of Christian dogma on public policy. If you're against their views, you don't have a differing opinion — you're anti-Christian (even if you are a Christian).

The ACLU tearing down crosses and legislating against freedom and religion.

An out of control judiciary.

State-enforced euthanasia of non-vegetative citizens.

A culture of death that promotes pedophilia, homosexuality taught in public schools.

A news media with a leftist agenda.

Abortion of 45 million American citizens in utero.

Seems like alot of victims to me.
