Thumbs Down The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
With all the real persecution of their faith out there, couldn't they have just used real life examples... Consider oh wait, that's right, they don't exist. Facepalm

Police helped three pastors stage a fake arrests. The charges... "Defending the faith" Dodgy

Here's the video. An article with more details, and the same video are in the link.

RE: The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
Huh

So if I've understood it correctly, that's state funds being used to endorse one church's marketing strategy?

Isn't there some rule against that over there?

This is perfect. They can just keep on doing things like this, they'll be "persecuted" by people telling them how idiotic they are and getting angry with them in no time!

Allegedly. Except the Good Ol' Boys club loves to ignore it for Jeebus. Especially in places like Ohio.

Yeah, we have pretty clear rules on it. Unfortunately the people in charge of enforcing those rules help put on stunts like this. Dodgy

It is really so fitting. They have to create fake persecution, just so they can prove how persecuted they are. I'd really like to think it doesn't get dumber than this.... But I know I'd be proven wrong.

RE: The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
It's so utterly pathetic the way Christians try to portray themselves as being the victims of persecution when all they have been doing for the last 2,000 years is shoving their religious bullshit down the throats of everybody else in this world. If I wasn't already atheist, seeing some shit like this would probably have pushed me to the atheist side of the fence.

The problem is that the actual definition of "persecute", and the Christian definition are different:

Real definition of the word "persecute": To subject (someone) to hostility and ill-treatment, esp. because of their race or political or religious beliefs.

Christian definition of "persecute": To not allow Christians to force their beliefs on the rest of society.

... and by this definition, persecution is a reality for many.

The makers of this vid obviously have a bias and an agenda but this does not make the data less real:




Here's an interesting thought...

Who here on TTA has thought of religion as a virus?

If that is true, then it makes perfect sense to attempt to purge it.
Examples: North Korea's current policy;
Ancient Japan's policy when Buddhism started to spread;
Killings of early missionaries;
The holocaust;

Given that we are dealing with the spread of information here, international best practice for Information processes are relevant.
Here are the process activities (and measures) for dealing with security incidents, such as viruses:
Threat
(Prevention / Reduction)
Incident
(Detection / Repression)
Damage
(Corrective / Recovery)
Control

Nothing in there about persecution but repression? Yeah, go for it!

In some cultures, of course, historically, there have often been great benefits when a host has learned to live with and adapt to mild viral attacks.

Stand your ground, kill some one, and walk away a free man.

And pastors are arrested for preaching ?

What are you going to do when they come for you, bad boys?

Want something? Then do something.

RE: The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
Hmm...
I know this was fake so don't assume I don't when reading this next text:
I don't think that if this was a real situation and they were getting arrested they wouldn't defend the faith, they would beg, because I know these idiot pastor don't REALLY believe hell and shit and actually want to live their lives.
