  • It's easier to play the victim card than it is to accept that maybe your ideas are not as widely accepted as you think, or that when you push your views on other people they might balk or push back.
  • because it is being targeted for destruction
  • Some christians are upset they can't control the lives of other people that don't believe what they do.
  • Because then they have the potential of getting other clueless people to fight for them so that they can get what they want. If they make it seem like alittle war people will fight however if they say everything is okay then they there followers will not even bother. I bet they say this due to the fact that we are not completely brainwashed by religion.
  • People like the role of underdog no matter how overwhelming their advantages are. You never hear anyone say "we are culturally, financially and politically dominant to the point where we unfairly force our will on the minority more than not". The only time you hear any such strong statements are in sports and other very limited arenas where such talk can actually increase one's celebrity. For the christian, claiming to be under attack gives them the "justified" self-righteous posturing of the victim while maintaining the power, influence and safety in numbers that being the majority provides. Christianity is extremely powerful in the US. Nothing illustrates this more clearly than the fact that each candidate for the last election bent over backwards to make it known what a good christian he/she was. The odds of an openly non-christian becoming president anytime soon is ...ZERO.
  • It is inevitable that some people are not going to believe, or agree with, the thoughts and actions of others. And some may not approve simply because these people are different than themselves. Is Christianity under attack? Sure! How about Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, etc.? How about the non-believers even? They all fit the category too. With any set of beliefs you will have opposition. And that's what opposition does; they attack. Complaining about your opposition usually does nothing more than make you appear weak. It is action that makes you stronger. Complaints can be useful to form a plan, but without action you are still at square one, or sometimes even further back.
  • I was going to say what Blackberry said =[ they're mad more and more people are figuring out their lies.
  • Because they are. Just read some of these "answers" with a dispassionate and fair eye and it's obvious. On a more national level, the media does their fair share of ridiculing and attacking Christianity. For instance, today's Washington Times has an article attacking Catholicism...calling it "The Cult of the Condom" in it's headline. Churches are bombed and burned. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5200226 Seriously, could it be more obvious?
  • paranoia and just too much worry about what other people think
  • that is because it is. The attackers say things like, "Christians have been attacking every body else for 200 years, now it is their turn." Or they deny it by saying, "Oh boo hoo! Lets cry for the poor little Christians. You only make this stuff up so you will look like martyrs and feel more spiritual." Example, The ACLU represents child rapists for free in court, but sues to have the ten commandment (the document our laws were based on) removed from all court houses. Bill Maher says every foul, rude and nasty thing he can about God and Christians and it is considered comic genius. Imus repeated Spike Lee when calling those basketball players "Nappy Headed Hoes" and he lost his job and had death threats Neighborhoods will not allow red and green Christmas lights because they are too Christian and may offend non-Christians. Gay activists attacked church members inside a church by throwing used condoms at them and shouting profanities, but the mayor refused to press charges. Christians were attacked again in a mostly gay neighborhood while giving out food to homeless. The gays said they were not welcome in their part of town, no criminal charges were brought up against the gays, even though some of the Christians were teens and had to go to the hospital. If it were reversed it would have been a hate crime and people would have went to jail.
  • So you are saying that if a Christian group were to represent a child rapist they would be considered hateful and wrong while when the ACLU does it they called American and constitutional? I don't really understand the dichotomy you are setting up.
  • Because their percentages are dropping. People are starting to realize that this is one nation under God, not Jesus.
  • 9/11 was a wake up call.
  • Freedom of speech is evolving or disappearing
  • ™Æƒuoɹʍ ʇı ƃuıop ǝɹ’ʎǝɥʇ ǝsnɐɔǝq ˙ɐıouɐɹɐd
  • Because Christians are often vocal about what they stand for and that just makes the non christian majority want to fight back. Things like christians saying homosexualiy is a sin can greatly offend not just the gay community but anyone who is a friend or relative of a gay person. The catholic churches objections to contraception can cause outrage amongst the medical professionals. Many women also feel that the churches to not oppose gender discrimination to the extent that they should. Particularly the catholic church. I also think non christians object to the fact that christians use the Bible. As someone once said on answerbag 'It would be fairy tale if it was not so dangerous.' This is just meaning that many of the things in the Bible are completly nutty, although of course there are some good bits in it too. We have seen extremist right wing churches interperating the Bible to fit in with them just as some Christians interperate it to do good.
  • Every group with an ideology has an opposition... that's sort of how the whole game works: If I say "I'm for X!", somewhere out there someone will react with "I'm for Not-X!". This is called "dualism": a magnet has a north and south pole. If you try to cut the magnet in half to isolate the poles, you don't get JUST a north pole and a south pole, you get two whole new magents, each with it's own north and south pole. Likewise, any time you take an adamant position about something which is in doubt, you create your own opposition by drawing out those who disagree. Its completely unavoidable. Of course, there are other "reasons" in here... having to do with the specific incidents and behaviors of both sides, but in general the principle is what governs the large-scale outcome: conflict is a side effect of taking a fixed position about something doubtful.
  • From the Arabs?
  • Christianity, like any other religion, thrives best when they can make themselves out to be the victim. It's the best way to avoid a lot of those salient questions.
  • Liberal media and Goverment IS trying to push christianity out the door. The morals and values that this country started with are now under attack. Which were created by our God loving ancestors. The countries foundation is crumblings bc these little bitches are afraid of a little religion. What ever happen to freedom of religion and speech? This country is sad.
  • Martyr complex. It's a common pathology.
  • They're just paranoid. It's their nature.
  • Because they realize their time is at an end, and don't know how to fight the logic and values of reality and fairness that are turning so many people against their outdated views. It's not an attack though, it's just the natural attrition of a more enlightened society.
  • So what do you want me to say in answering your question? That the question is irrelevant ? So be it .
  • Well, I am no Christian, but if I were, I would feel as if atheism was taking over the role as prime religion. Slowly, yes, but inevitably. With the advance of science, the theory of creationism is slowly dieing out, as with all old theories such as spontaneous generation or geocentricity. People are finally looking beyond the book and starting to doubt that a random magic man appeared and poofed everything into existence. In other words, humans became fore intelligent.
  • Now more so than ever with a Muslim President
  • Because they view the USA being anything but christian majority backing a christian government the end of their faith. I hate when peope say "This country was started by christians, one nation under god blah blah blah", as if christianity were synonymous with democracy?! How ridiculous. Our forefathers were not all christian, they came from countries that had christianity AND a dictatorship or monarchy NOT democracy, and one nation under god, does not specify which god or gods this includes. One of my biggest problems with religions are how they seek to assimilate and entitle themselves to certain things in this country which belong to ALL free men, not just christian ones. .
  • They like the sympathy that they think they get.
  • Because it is. Just as it's under attack in many other countries. It has been under attack since the beginnings of the New Testament church and history bears that out. Christians aren't being martyred in America like they are in other countries but the attacks here come under the guise of "Separation Of Church and State" and every sub-topic that an individual or group of people may want to arbitrarily add to their list of "can't allows." Anyone that is familiar with the Separation of Church and State scenario knows that this is not found in the Constitution and has nothing to do with keeping religion out of the government, rather it has all to do with keeping the government from forming their own religion. Obviously 1st Amendment is meaningless to those who choose to attack by twisting and subverting the Constitution to reach their goal. Wanting God and everything associated with Him to "go away" is the impetus behind what we see in the United States. The attackers are a small but vocal and militant group of people that has had some success unfortunately. It will only get worse unless the sleeping giant awakens.
  • Maybe its because so many people make fun of Christians and their beliefs. Anyone ever thought of that? Or are the majority of people answering "no it isn't" not Christians?
  • They've been fed that bull by their manipulators. People who are afraid are much easier to manipulate.
  • Fox News told them so
  • Christianity has always been under attack. It's nothing new. Those people who don't like christians seem to feel somehow justified in doing so. They feel that they have attained some sort of great victory, when they say things like, " everone knows the Bible is full of contradictions" or "christians force their beliefs on others" Just because someone answers one of these questions on this website with a christian point of view, it is somehow considered labeled as "forcing". Someone said, "if you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen" or something like that. If you don't like christians, and think they are full of s... , then why do you ask these questions? probably because you just want to hide your own fear, and loneliness behind a mask of hate.
