The irony here being, that if these assholes had their way this would be legal; for use against faiths other than their own.

Because who needs the First and Fourteenth Amendments, right? Facepalm

RE: The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
Are there any examples of the majority being subject to persecution?

A recent one is Iraq with Saddam Hussein. The majority of the country are Shia Muslims which are about sixty percent of the population. The upper controlled Sunni class is the minority with about thirty percent but they did persecute the majority. Killing civilians, destroying their homes, farms and livestock and many were exiled to Iran.

Of course there are times the majority can be persecuted but the Christian's within the United States are hardly even remotely close to that. If anything they persecute people and want to continually be able to persecute people like the recent Arizona Bill that they were trying to pass until people started to freak out about it.

And pastors are arrested for preaching ?

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

I suggest you actually read the article. Drinking Beverage

RE: The religious are so persecuted... They have to stage their persecution
These "arrests" are so clearly fake they are, in fact, cringeworthy. Is anyone going to be fooled by them?

Convenient that the cops left the window down so that each of the pastors could be interviewed by the also conveniently available Christian cameraman. Do the police routinely leave windows open in police cars when there's snow on the ground?

And the cost. It seems there are 4 cops at each arrest. Two of them are filmed coming out of a police car (there's that handy filmmaker again). Presumably, the other two also had a car (OK, maybe they walked...or took a bus...nah!). So, 4 cops and 2 cars. All on the public bill. Nice.

Would the police also help a rabbi or an iman if such individuals wanted to stage such a stunt? Got me doubts.

And pastors...isn't lying one of the things you are most against?

The idea was "...to show their congregations how Christians are persecuted in the U.S". So, an update on the scoreline

Fake arrests 3 Real arrests 0
