"Christians in the U.S. are facing constant attacks in the media, where they are portrayed as bigoted, racist, sexist, and close- minded," the report argues, highlighting in part the battle between traditional marriage and LGBT-supporting groups.

Um, that's because a lot of US Xians are bigoted, racist, sexist, and close-minded.

"In essence, the courts are deciding that you only have full religious freedom and expression in the church and your home. In the public domain, your religious views and thoughts must be restrained and controlled."

Well, yeah! Not everyone in the US are Xian.

Bullshit. Street preachers are everywhere. Roadsigns all over the country promoting their shit.
Televangelists on national networks spewing their shit 24 hours a day.

But they're restrained from using taxpayers' money to spew their shit. Of course, there are those tax breaks to make the yoke a bit easier to bear. That doesn't take away the horror and persecution of hearing "Happy Holidays", though.

Oh exactly I can drive around Oklahoma City and take you plenty of pictures of these things right now. And who isn't called bigoted, sexist, and racist these day when dealing with certain groups, oh and right wing, yeah I am right wing now no matter that every political survey I take says otherwise.
