Only 5% of Americans are 'real' Christians.
The only 'real' Christian is _________
And no, Christians will not be persecuted in the US. Never have, and never will (at least not based solely on the fact that they're Christian)
You may see prayer removed from public schools, but it's because there is a separation of church and state

Interesting that I have been in the US for over 27 years and I have never seen anybody been persecuted for saying that they are Christians.
What a bunch of propaganda.
Persecution is persistent mistreatment of an individual/group by another group. The most common forms are religious persecution, ethnic persecution, and political persecution, though there is naturally some overlap between these terms

You are correct marg... I would add though that they also bring it on themselves... with their (evangelical protestants) self righteous attempts (and ours is the only true way attitude) to convert the world (even other Christian groups) to their faith... it is at its heart very intolerant in and of its self and not so very far from the attitude of many other radical faiths they decry.
