But the most disturbing craziness came from Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey:

In the wake of a gunman targeting Christians at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, taking the lives of nine people before being killed by police, Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey is encouraging Christians in America to arm themselves, according to The Tennessean.

The lawmaker posted a message Friday on Facebook that said "whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West."*

In a country where every hamlet boasts three churches, it's difficult to think about Christian persecution seriously. And while the gunman at Umpqua CC had asked people to identify themselves by religion and administered his form of "justice" accordingly, Christian "persecution" in America is not exactly a picture of coliseums and lions. The paranoia generated by people like Janet Porter (who says that Christians are now being treated like the Jews in Nazi Germany) has created at false atmosphere of fear that now takes over the Right Wing airwaves.

Some preachers are capitalizing on that fear, going so far as to openly promote gun use everywhere.
