‘Tis the season… For Christians to claim persecution. Every year, they start the “Happy Holidays” versus “Merry Christmas” debate. They somehow think that not saying “Merry Christmas” to them means you are persecuting them.
I don’t think they know what persecution means. They have been persecuting other people for decades.
This time, the Christians think they are being persecuted by retail companies who are in favor of LGBT rights. Hello… Is anyone forcing you to go to those stores? Nope.
Linda Harvey, founder of a RWNJ Christian outfit called Mission America has been railing against many of these retailers. She says that they are “discriminating against” Christians. Harvey has also said that she is on the “right side of history” for opposing LGBT rights.
In the last few years, she has stopped going to Macy’s and Target because they support transgender people using the fitting rooms that correspond to their gender identity.
Now, Walmart is on her radar. In Arkansas, they supported the “religious freedom” bills that the GOP was backing. These bills would allow business owners and other employers to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
Yes, she’s the one being persecuted. People like this think they have the right to take away other people’s rights because of their beliefs. Well, guess what? That’s not true, Mrs Harvey.
