I had an interesting discussion with my mother today. Mom's a pastor in a fairly conservative denomination (Nazarene...same one that Dobson came out of, actually). I asked her if she believed that the rights of Christians are being taken away in America, and if she thought the world was getting more hostile towards Christians. After all, so many dominionist leaders install fear in their followers by claiming that the "liberals" want to make Christianity illegal.

Well, mom just looked at me for a moment, then answered, "If Christianity becomes illegal in America, it will be the Christian's fault. There's always backlash. Remember, if you take away the rights of any group of people, what will happen when that group comes into power?"

Just thought it was an interesting response.
