The only "persecuted" group in this country is the white heterosexual adult male. The government, far from prying into everyone's bedroom, has now become a tool for forcing the acceptance of other's bedroom behavior on to those that find it immoral and offensive, and subsidizing it. Children are not being forced to pray in school; rather, they are being force-fed a curriculum of political correctness tripe consisting of tolerance, diversity, and self-esteem rather than those boring unimportant subjects such as reading, writing and arithmetic. This explains why the country's educational system is going downhill in spite of the ungodly amounts of money thrown at it. These things alone mark liberal Democrats as the true fascist abominations.
