Yesterday, while folding laundry in front of the TV, I chanced upon The 700 Club. The host, Pat Robertson, was whining that the new Hate Crimes Bill was just another example of the "persecution" of "believing Christians." Why? Because he's afraid that pastors whose sermons condemn what he calls the "lifestyles" of gays and transgendered folks could go to jail. Oh, get real, Pat! Believe me, you and your "believing Christians" are not the victims here. Do you want to know what a real victim looks like? A real victim gets tied to a fence and beaten to death because someone can't tolerate his "lifestyle."
