Oppressed Christians

Sometimes we nonbelievers forget how difficult times have become for Christians who can no longer make bigoted statements without experiencing pushback. They are being bullied and called meanies and worse. They are simply not used to it and are suffering deeply. Samantha Bee of The Daily Show lends a sympathetic ear to their plight.

    My elderly parents were deeply offended this past weekend, when they started their right-wing hatefulness at the table while eating the meal I had prepared for them. I cruelly and horribly wounded them when I pointed out that not everyone believes as they do. Oh, the drama! They’re still not speaking to me.

    Just tell me, do these right-wing interviewees on the Daily Show *agree* to be parodied and laughed at? Are they reading scripts written by the Daily Show, or are they actually sincere, and just don’t realize how they sound?

    I have a difficult time believing that this guy’s words were his own, but then, I have been fooled many times by wingnuts, whose thoughts truly are beyond belief.

    So, I am ready to face the harsh truth, please just tell me.
