Imagine my surprise this week when I finally realized that the war has started. I come back from a weekend of celebration and worship to find that there is a war raging and the target is Christianity.
Wait… that’s Christian America. The war is against Christian America.
Nevermind. I’ve just been reminded by fox news that there is no difference between the two.
My favorite example so far was the ‘hit piece’ above that recently ripped apart the University of Maryland’s student senate for voting to take a Judeo-Christian prayer out of the graduation ceremony. Imagine that – a public university made up of students representing multiple religions removing a part of a ceremony that only represents the beliefs of a portion.
Oh, thank goodness fox news is there for me. This senate is made up of “liberal professors and activist students.” Those dang profs and crazy students in Maryland… why must you hate Christians?
These are the same students who are showing porn at a closed event. Oh the whore horror (ha!).
Do you want to know what the real war on Christianity is? It’s agents like fox news and the heritage foundation and their goons who think that Christian college students can’t make their own decisions to avoid porn being shown on campus. That is a war on Christianity. It’s these ridiculous ‘news’ stories that continue to weaken American Christianity and drive it to the fringe. And good riddens. The sooner we can cast this fake, watered down version of Christianity into a fiery lake of sulfur where it belongs, the better.
Christians at the University of Maryland don’t need a student senate telling them there will be a theatrical prayer to open up the graduation ceremony. Christians at the University of Maryland, and apparently fox news and the heritage foundation, need to realize that every single person at the graduation ceremony can pray as much as they want whenever they want. They can pray as they line up to head to the ceremony. They can pray as they pull on their cap for the first time. They can pray as their name is called. They can pray as they walk across the stage and shake a trustee’s hand. They can pray as the ceremony comes to a close. Is some fake corporate prayer that was written weeks prior and vetted by a team of administrators somehow more powerful than individual Christians offering up words of thanks and worship?
Apparently so, according to fox news and the heritage foundation. Hope they enjoy their superficial white suburban Jesus religion.
