    That is not true! I am not even sure what you are talking about--or what Pence is talking about. Sure, trolls run their mouths on this board, but other than that, I don't hear Christianity or Christians being "hated" at all. Who ridicules and shuns them? (Remember--we are not talking about the trolls here.)

    In the mainstream media, show me one place where Christianity is "hated." I just never see anything like that or hear it. Most everyone in this country still believes in God, even though they might not be part of an organized religion. I think most consider themselves "Christian" if they have to identify as one of the major faiths. Probably almost as many who believe in God also support Jesus's teachings. He was a good man.

    So what am I missing?

    Nearly eight-in-ten U.S. adults think God or a higher power has protected them, and two-thirds say they have been rewarded by the Almighty.

    Wow!
    !, I am a real Bible based Christian.,Therefore, I am consistent in my beliefs and not just when it's convenient for me, for political reasons.
    2, I have been a consistent moderate Independent for the last twenty years or so. It seems, that anyone to is not as fanatically far right as folks like you, must be a liberal.
    3, Republicans have used fear to rally their minions for decades. Fear, was the number one tool, Trump used in his acceptance speech as the nominee for the presidency at the 2016, Republican Convention.

    Yes, some churches are even burnt, and some old men with gray beards spit on Christians.
    Especially bad for Palestinian Christians I've read.

    What policies do I support that render me a "far-right radical"?
