Christian Bashing on the Left

Two fine writers -- Megan Basham and Mary Eberstadt -- point out one of the most enduring lessons from l'affaire Marcotte . . . the new respectability of Christian-bashing on the left.

It will be interesting to see whether the American people are willing to empower a party that tolerates -- even welcomes -- the presence of such haters in their midst.

The Nazis have anti-Semitism.
The Left have intolerance.

Christians are the only group (except for maybe Israel and Jews) for whom hatred is perfectly acceptable, if not encouraged. God is being pushed into the closet formerly inhabited by gays and other deviants. As if that wasn't bad enough, there's been nothing to replace Him. It's been "My Truth" as if everyone has there own. Sad and sad for our country.

Marshall - You Christians are relatively new at this being hated stuff. After 3,000 years you recognize the morons for what they are -- jealous!

I think I've said it before, but I'll say it again -- The American Christian has provided a freedom for Jewish people that has never existed before. You and those liike you have my deep affection and support.

"The American Christian has provided a freedom for Jewish people that has never existed before."

Medved and Prager say it all the time. This country has provided that same freedom for the jerks who rag on us, too. They just don't understand it.

Oh, Poppycock. I'm a serious, faithful Christian. We are not persecuted and we are certainly not 'bashed' the way other groups have been bashed and persecuted in America. Get real!
