Discrimination Against Christianity
Christians are labeled as uneducated, judged for their beliefs, and discriminated against in the mainstream culture. It is absurd that people have a problem with the right to Freedom of religion, considering that our founding fathers found it so important that it they set in place as an amendment. It is hard to understand why people think that it is ok to discriminate against Christians. The Bible states that we will be persecuted for our beliefs. For example, in Second Timothy 3:12 it says “ Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ jesus shall suffer persecution (Bible KJV).” but that does not mean that it is ok to put forth discrimination on Christians. Christians should not have to be scared on a day-to-day basis of being martyred for what they believe in. It is not being called a bible thumper or a religion pusher that emits a sick

Here is a couple examples 1. a Florida ministry was told that they had to remove the face of jesus if they wanted to receive USDA food to help the poor. 2. a baker faces a year in jail for not making a gay couple 's wedding cake. There are red flags everywhere with just two examples of discrimination against christians. A Florida church wanted to help people who were poor and who could not provide food for themselves, but they could not associate it with god or christianity, so instead of open religion we get starving people because that is totally logical. And so what if a christian baker did not want to make a wedding cake, it is their choice not to make it and it was the gay couple 's choice to go there. But instead because there is obviously no other bakeries around we will selfishly sue you for not going against christian beliefs. People expect christians to abandon their beliefs and get with the modern times and if they do not they could be sued or killed (Hawkins

    Alice Cooper has another great quote, “When you’re a Christian, it doesn’t mean you’re going to be good; it means you’ve got a harder road to pull” (Viola). Being a Christian is no easy task and creating stereotypes does not help the problem. Popular stereotypes include Christians don’t drink, everything we say must come from the Bible, and we only care about you becoming a Christian. All of these stereotypes effect Christians deeply because we are all not the same. A Stern Baptists does not drink, however; Lutherans drink as well as Catholics.…

    There needs to be no problem for a homosexual couple to go to a bakery to ask the baker to make them a cake for their wedding. The homosexual couple just want a cake for their wedding. The couple is not trying to get the business owner to become homosexual by buying a cake. Religious people believe that living among homosexuals is horrible for any civilization. According to “10 Things You Should Know About Focus On the Family” “Akin said that ‘there is no civilization which has condoned homosexual marriage widely and openly that has long survived.’” Homosexuals are being judged by religious business owners because religious people feel that society is going to fail.…

    We push our religion on others instead of talking about Jesus, and that is why people are scared of Christians. Take the Muslims for example they have a good view on Jesus but hate Christians. So many people call themselves Christians but tend to only use that word as some sort of crutch, and fail to realize it is more than just a religion, but it is a true relationship. We are to treat others like Jesus treats them. We are to accept them where they are and point them towards God.…

    The mindset destroys the values, morals and for a believer. Christianity involves around purpose, destiny and faith; existentialism causes distraction from the bigger picture as a whole to fight for one’s destiny before Jesus returns. Otherwise, this Earth would be in void, but God doesn’t make anything in void according to this western religion. Pessimism is tied into the saying “live young, die young,” in a subtle way. For Christianity, it’s something beautiful and everlasting to fulfill destiny in order to not suffer from lack of identity or confusion.…

    However, because some of the beliefs that come with Christianity, Christian’s are given a bad name. The media likes to slander Christian’s because they do not believe in same sex marriage or, in some rare cases, interracial marriages. However, not all of us think that if you get married to someone of a different race or of the same sex that you are going to hell. This is a very outdated way of thinking. Yes, it is true that we were brought up believing that this was a major sin, but, most of us won’t look at you any different.…

    The thought here being that if you don 't assent to some fact or profess your love and belief in God that you will not be saved. Some feel that if this is truly how you feel, then your relationship with God and the religion itself is a bit skewed. The beauty of Christianity is supposed to be that they are tolerant of differences and non-judging towards others. I think that may be the biggest reason that people have a problem with Evangelism. When you hear opinions of the negative side of Evangelism, it seems that it brings out the hypocrites in a way, because they say no one other than Jesus can condemn you to hell or promise you heaven where as the Evangelists seem to believe that your lack of belief is what condemns you, the people fighting Evangelism are being just as judgmental.…

    C.S Lewis’ teachings in Mere Christianity made me question the topic of morality, why there are goodness and badness in the world, and how the goodness of God lives inside Christians. C.S. Lewis believed in a fact that there was an external force that gave us a moral compass of knowing right from wrong. “Quarrelling means trying to show that the other man is wrong. And there would be no sense in trying to do that unless you and he had some sort of agreement as to what Right and Wrong are” (Lewis 18).…

    Kierkegaard indeed continues to reinforce the idea that the untruth is the way how the individual is lost in the crowd through the last reason of how the Christendom removes authenticity from Christianity. Basically, the Christendom is removing the truth from an individual from practicing Christianity because they are claiming the untruth. This restricts the individual from trying to obtain the truth individually. For example, the Christendom would tell individuals all they need to do in order to be a true Christian is to go to church, instead of sincerely praying alone at home and practicing good deeds. Kierkegaard is arguing his reason why he believes this by writing, "If the other hand there were an assemblage of thousands or more and the…

    Grace is getting what we do not deserve from God. We do not deserve forgiveness of our sins, but he gives it to us through Jesus. We do not deserve to go to heaven, but we are able to do that through Jesus. So, to be saved by grace means that the judgment due to us because of our sin against God, i.e. lying, stealing, adultery, fornication, coveting, lust, etc., will not befall us; that is forgiveness.…

    In the essay “The History of Gay Rights” by Minh Nguyen, he elaborates on why religion is constantly brought up when in regards to same­sex marriage. He states: They [gay and lesbians] are considered extremely “immoral” because they do not follow social customs, “unnatural” because homosexuality violates the basic functions of genitals and contradicts the nature. Religious Leaders reason that Jesus asks the mankind in the Bible “to go out and have children.” Since homosexuals are not able to reproduce children, homosexuality is, therefore, from their perspective an act of sin. (Nguyen, n.pag.) The religious leaders need to understand that not everybody believes in the same God they do, therefore making the gay individuals exempt from their accusations of sin.…
