    Because he was being approached by an angry mob before he was knifed by one of them; and this is only one of many, many, videos that I have seen on the subject?

    By the way, I can't link this video; because of the profanity that was being shouted by the mob; but the knifeman didn't say a word. He attacked like a silent snake.

    Not in that case; but it appears that his attackers got off Scott free.

    I have seen cases however, where the preacher gets unjustly arrested.

    Wow! ...and they violated the cameraman's 1st amendment rights. The SCOTUS has ruled on this.

    This is about Ambrose University in Canada which claims to represent Christ. Dated May 6,2021. It involves a Christian brother who was invited there to speak. Afterwards they shunned him because of what he said about systematic racism.

    Although this is far less significant on the scale of persecution where immediate threats to life and body happen. It is type of an academic persecution/shunning of ideas within the Christian community.

    Black Christian denounced by Christian university over systemic racism comment

    Any thoughts?

    This is sexual assault, and a hate crime, IMO.



    No one cared. Nobody came to his rescue.

    This situation waxes to the oppression of the messengers in the days of Lott.

    From what i saw and read on the incident the assailant and the "angry mod" were not connected. It was in fact the "angry mob" that stopped the assailant and provided first aid to the victim.

    So why were they angry in the first place?

    the right to speak doesn't include using a microphone and thus violating noise ordnance and disturbing the peace (charges he pled guilty to in court BTW). Just because he is a preacher doesn't mean he is above the law

    Yeah right. If a gang of men had done the same thing to a lesbian; it would have made national headlines.

    So you're OK with the homosexuals' behavior?

    sorry, my internet has been down. I wanted to compile some examples. To start, I never said I was; I said Christians across the world are the most persecuted. I also said just because something is in law does not mean its applied equally as governments mistreat minorities and dissenting groups all the time. Take the first amedment

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Yet they do this all the time. What was a guarantee of freedom of religion has become freedom of atheism and freedom from religion. Christianity is kicked out of the public square. Teach the truth of the bible to kids or in the government see how long you have a job. And yet I have my money stolen by the government to fund what I see as evil, for example, what is taught in public schools where I was as a youth, and kids today, are being indoctrinated in anti-christ propaganda.

    Kicked out or no longer has exclusive access?

    Treating Christianity the same as other religions isn't oppressing Christianity

    The result would be if one were to go into a public school and teach the truth of the quaran or the truth of the Bhagavad Gita.

    and others view teaching creationism as evil.

    treating Christianity less than secularism is. forcing Christians to fund there worldview via secular schools is.


    mostly agree, and that is my point, we no longer have freedom of, but from religion.


    and they should fund their own religious schools, I have no issue with that. but forcing Christian to fund there worldview i do take issue with.
