There's a simple reason Christians don't get any respect in America.
It's because we don't DESERVE IT.
Tell me that I'm wrong....but right after you do, explain to me why liberals WET THEMSELVES IN FEAR when they merely THINK ABOUT doing something that could offend Muslims.
There's a simple reason that Hollywood and liberals don't take shots at Muslims: Muslims take notice and get offended. You make fun of Allah today and your head might end up in a mailbox tomorrow or some bucktoothed Imam in Pakistan might use it as an excuse to start riots that end up killing a dozen people. CAIR can complain about "stereotypes" all it wants, but that's reality and judging by the silence we hear coming from most "moderate Muslims" over the way their radical brethren behave, this sort of violent intimidation either doesn't bother them very much or they're as frightened as liberals to say anything about it.
So, what lesson can Christians take away from that?
No, it's not burn down the New York Times if Maureen Dowd makes a crack about Jesus. We're Christians, not radical Islamists; so we don't do that. Additionally, Muslims are also a tiny sliver of the population, while Christians make up roughly 70% of the country. The truth is, we don't need to take extreme measures to get the deference we're due.
We just need to stop ignoring grotesque provocations aimed at our faith. If Christians here in the United States won't even pick the low hanging fruit and make companies that rely on our business to survive pay a price for disrespecting us, not only do we not deserve respect, people have every reason to question the sincerity of our beliefs.
That brings us to OkCupid and Mozilla Firefox.
OkCupid is a third rate, anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-free speech dating site that got extremely upset at Mozilla Firefox.
Because Mozilla Firefox, a third rate, anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-free speech browser company, had a CEO named Brendan Eich who gave $1000 to support Prop 8 in 2008.
As you may remember, Prop 8 did nothing more than state the standard Christian position on marriage. It said, "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." Not only do 33 other states have similar laws in place, but 52% of Californians supported the constitutional amendment before activist left-wing judges ran roughshod over the will of the people and replaced the law with their personal opinion.
