I’m astonished by your level of denial and your shameful refusal to face the evil that Christians are working in the United States. “The reverse appears to be true?”

Are you on crack?

Christians in the United States have formed a close and fruitful alliance with Donald Trump, and he’s giving them everything they’re asking for — which is primarily the right to force non-Christians (and other sorts of Christians) to be restricted by Christian views.

No, the intolerant ones are the Christians who have just won the legal right to fire LGBTQ people. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

No, the intolerant ones are the Christian medical professionals who just won the deny routine medical care to LGBTQ people. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

No, the intolerant ones are the Christians who just won the right to deny children the opportunity to be fostered or adopted by LGBTQ parents. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

No, the intolerant ones are the Christians who pushed the US State Department in June of 2018 to stop pressuring African nations to desist from putting LGBTQ people in prison. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

No, the intolerant ones are the Christians who urged Trump and gang to treat immigrants like animals, separating families and throwing children in cages. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

No, the intolerant ones are the Christians fighting for laws that make it all but impossible for poor women to get an abortion — while simultaneously slashing food benefits to poor families. Or hadn’t you heard about that?

I could go on and on and on and on. Christians in the United States are incredibly politically powerful, and they’re wielding that power ruthlessly. They’re in charge. They’re privileged.

Yet your position is that the truly intolerant people are those who oppose those Christians?

Words can’t even begin to express how sick and twisted your point of view is.
