'Wrong kind' ? What is that or who are they ?
Um, I guess some people don't even know their own religion.
It's a little sad when an Atheist has to teach a Christian about their own mythology.
Look up Huguenot
, for one.
Half a Million Huguenots fled France due persecution.
Need I name other types?
Catholic, Protestant, Orthodoxy?
Do the Knights Templar getting hunted down, imprisoned, tortured, and burned at the stake ring any bells?
Does the ever popular charge of Heresy
sound familiar at all?
I'd say that Christians burning different flavored Christians alive would very much fall under the domain of 'persecution', especially when minority
flavors were being actively hunted down.
Getting tortured into making a confession, and then getting burned alive is also quite the bit more brutal than a quick decapitation.
Thus, yeah, if Christians can't wave around their little persecution flag in blaming either dark magical forces, witches, and/or some other religion,
they'll go out of their way to persecute each other in mutually gratifying persecution circles down to the last one standing.
The foundation of Persecution in Christianity is almost on equal footing with the belief in the Christ myth.
I'm personally very much in favor of The Rapture myth actually being real and happening as soon as possible where some Jesus Spaceship zaps all the
Christians away to their happy heaven.
The world will then be free of Christians, and the Christians get their happy Jesus spaceship heaven.
Oh? wait? what? not ALL christians will get zapped up into the Jesus Spaceship?
Oh, Ah-ha, the 'wrong' kind of Christians will be left behind?
Interesting how once someone is sold the Christian snake oil, simply being a Christian is no longer good ENOUGH.
