GUEST,Musket curious BS: Christian Persecution (2040* d) RE: BS: Christian Persecution 28 Sep 13

Cult is not an insult. Religion is a group term and although they are all the same to me personally, I give them the respect of observing there are different sects within the term religion that see themselves as unique, hence cult is an accurate term of reference.

I repeat yet again. Whilst the Christianity "section? will that do? "of religion does seem to be getting violent oppression and stigmatising acts committed against them in some areas, so are other "sections" of religion. Who would be Shia in Iraq or Sunni in Iran? The Bosnian Muslims who suffered ethnic cleansing by the Christian Serbs, etc etc. Who prayed for them?

Pointing out the issues of one particular section of religion based communities leads to awful division. You know, the worst thing about those who discriminate is those who make excuses for them.

If it weren't for the much publicised effort by UK Christian organisations to push the persecution button because the law doesn't let them discriminate against Gays now, and if they don't get their act together and allow top jobs to be sought on merit, women soon, I could take this thread at face value but whilst religious equality isn't good enough for some, these threads just feed the need for privilege and that will never return.

Thank Clapton.
