The very basis of Christianity is rooted in persecution and Persecution is worn almost with pride by Christians everywhere.
No matter what's happening in the world, Christians are ALWAYS running around in circles, flapping their hands, screaming their heads off about being under constant persecution.
The Romans persecuted the Christians.
Then the Christians TOOK OVER Rome.
So they persecuted each other over what the "right kind" of Christian was.
But, hey, there's those Muslims, so, Christians went out of their way to go get persecuted in the Holy Land in the Crusades.
After a while in taking over pretty much ALL of Europe, Christians had to flap about getting persecuted by the devil, or witches, or the 'wrong kind' of Christians (again).
Fast forward to 2013.
Christians, and Christian dominant Nations own most all the nuclear weapons, and represent the most dominant faith mythology on the planet.
Yet, somehow, they're STILL getting persecuted.
. Get rid of the Christians and the Muslims and all that is left are the Catholics, Protestants and ALL other religions. Only after the religious zealots of all faiths are gone, can we truly have World Peace.
geeze, the crusades started because of the muslims.

isn't the OP fear mongering the possibility of that very thing but, for Christians?
Many times, when directly comparing Albert Pike's World War 3 and current world events where Christians are murdered for their faith, i have noticed that it is greeted by a 'wall of silence'. The thread just dies.
Here we are, the world has supposedly evolved and yet one side kills law-abiding tax-payers (Christians) whilst the other side turns a blind eye.
Once all true Christians are physically killed and spiritually safe with Yahushua in paradise, thats when Judgement Day will occur. So turning a blind eye now will lead this world to its imminent destruction.
People will say 'How can Yahushua allow this to happen ?'. At least He gives everyone a chance to save their sorry asses from the 'Lake of Fire' whilst they are still mortal. Thats a lot more than Lucifer can give.
People will say 'YHWH is Satan' or whatever. In that case Satan has to obey the words that he ordered his elitists to write when the bible was written. Hence true Christians will be removed to a false paradise whilst satan unleashes hell on earth during the 7 Year Tribulation with all of his scalar weapons.
So either way, the situation on Earth is only going to get worse and now MSM cannot even avoid mentioning this fact.
That is because if you say they, those who listen to you are dead, they can't answer and this appears to you as a wall, because if you would go there too you would become part of the dead while you are also the one who imagines it, or the main dreamer who then makes himself believe he is no longer the main dreamer. Which is a dangerous thought and hard to recover from.
What if the Buddah exists and everything will be ok for a small amount of time because on Judgement Day every paradise that the fallen angels have created will be destroyed ?
Then it would mean that God does not care at all for free-will and won't let people live their lives but only be robots to do whatever he says like a slave or suffer.
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” - Galatians 5:14

when you brag about hell and make it seem like God is not a God of Mercy and Love.
Everything that each person does, when they seek war, fighting, taking advantage of others, instead of listening to Jesus and loving others as themselves, it seems like those actions have negative consequences.
'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.
