I'd also be labeled a "homosexual activist" because as everyone knows, gays want to destroy Christianity - it's all part of the "gay agenda." So it was really no surprise to me to find out about the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission's "Top Ten Anti-Christian Attacks in 2009." It should be called "The Top Ten Non-Anti-Christian Attacks We Can Blame On Our Enemies, Especially Gays." It should also substitute "attacks" with something more suitable, like "Totally Unrelated Incidents and Fabrications." Stretching some of these "attacks" into anti-Christian violence makes for interesting, novel (as in fiction) reading. So to set matters straight (ugh!), I've listed the "Top Ten" with some minor addenda.
Top Ten Anti-Christian Attacks in 2009
The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) has released its list of the top ten incidents of anti-Christian defamation, bigotry and discrimination in the US from last year. The list was selected by the subscribers to CADC's e-mail list and was selected from a list of twenty of CADC's top stories from 2009.
A helluva lot more, it seems. "Bona fide examples of persecution" would include violence against people for being Christian, just like violence against people for being gay. But the following examples don't prove anything of the sort."It is arguable that anti-Christian hatred has spilled over into material forms of persecution in 2009," said Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "Christians were killed and bullied for their witness, ministers and churches threatened with violence and vandalized for standing for marriage, and Christians were fired for not compromising their faith. If these are not bona fide examples of persecution, than I wonder what more it might take?"
10. Pro-life Pastor Reverend Walter Hoye of Oakland, CA was jailed for exercising peaceful, pro-life speech. Evidently, not that peaceful. And he wasn't jailed for his speech:
SFGate.com: Walter Hoye, 52, of Union City was the first person convicted under an Oakland ordinance barring protesters from coming within 8 feet of anyone entering an abortion clinic.
9. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois.
CBS Series, Guns In America: The man suspected of fatally shooting an Illinois pastor during Sunday services suffered from mental illness stemming from a tick bite, the suspect's family told a newspaper in an interview last August. [Lime Disease].
So who should be jailed - the suspect, or the one who gave him the gun? Absolutely no mention of any form of anti-Christian motive.
8. HBO's program "Curb Your Enthusiasm" aired an episode where the main actor urinates on painting of Jesus. When confronted HBO would not apologize.
New York Daily News: In a statement titled "Urinating on Jesus," Catholic League president Bill Donahue says, "At one point in the show, David goes to the bathroom in a Catholic home and splatters urine ["accidently"] on a picture of Jesus; he doesn't clean it off. Then a Catholic woman goes to the bathroom, sees the picture and concludes that Jesus is crying. She then summons her equally stupid mother and the two of them fall to their knees in prayer."
A Daily News poll: 40% thought it was OK - and funny.
7. The overt homosexual participation in Obama's presidential inaugural events by "Bishop" Vickie Eugene Robinson, the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington D. C., and a homosexual marching band.
