Christians Are Being Forced Into Spiritual Ghettos.

So says Tony Perkins, the KKK-affiliated leader of the Family Research Council, a Christian hate group.

Frank Wright, sat down with the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins to discuss “how secularist groups have worked to strip any mention of God and Christianity from the public square,” which Perkins complained was resulting in Christians being forced into “spiritual ghettos.”

“We are not disqualified from engaging in the public square simple because we’re Christian,” Perkins said. “And that’s where we’re at today, where people want us to check our Christian faith at the door of even public service; not just holding public office, but if you’re a fireman, a policeman, a teacher, a football coach, you’re supposed to leave your faith at home or within the confines of the church. [That is] totally contrary to what the founders envisioned and, I would argue, Frank, totally contrary to what God has called us to do.”

When Wright wondered how long it will be before even the private practice of faith is not tolerated by the government, Perkins declared that “we see this administration, we see the left creating these spiritual ghettos where we are forced into, confined to these areas, trying to quarantine faith so it’s more easily controllable.”

    Man, I wish they were quarantined. They’d be so much easier to ignore.

    Also, how can atheists not be in a ghetto? We don’t even have a church!

    Just being a Christian is already being in a spiritual ghetto.

    Umm, at least he is not claiming he will be crucified. [/snark] Still pretty clueless though, claiming that the christians will be the object of the kind of treatment that they themselves would like to inflict upon those they hate.

    It all makes sense. They were right after all.

    Hussein Obama’s Communo-Kenyan Islamic Sharia Plan for the Perpetuation of the War on Christianity and the Subjugation of the Devout and Venerable Populace of this Once Great God-fearing Nation:

    Step 1: Forced healthcare
    Step 2: Usurpation of marriage or the sacred rites of filing taxes jointly, medical proxy and inheritance
    Step 3: Annexation of urination and defecation facilities
    Step 4: Internment into spiritual ghettos
    Step 5: Death panels

    They are? Ok, I’ll get my sandals and find a spongball somewhere and herd them into the, ah, well something… local ice cream shoppe? What does a xian ghetto look like anyways?

    Spiritual gheetos are horrible, I drove through one the other day and the eucharist addicts were all hanging around the front steps waiting for their fix.

    Much harder to satisfy them, now that less churches provide the requisite wine; it’s hard to swallow that Jesus wafer dry.
