I’m a Christian, too. No one was being bigoted toward religious people in that thread. In fact, quite the opposite: people were defending Christianity throughout the thread.
A poster pointed out that they were scared to come out as queer because of the well-known and well-documented bigoted violence and discrimination from Christians toward LGBT people. He didn’t say that all Christians would be that way, but it only takes one.
You then decided to mock him by acting like the only thing an LGBT person would have to fear is being prayed for. That’s not even true now, let alone in decades past. And even if you were somehow unaware of the history, the tone was clearly mockery.
We have a duty as Christians to care for the oppressed. Mocking them is not caring for them. Their talking about the darker parts of our history is not them oppressing us.
The attitude that we Christians are the oppression victims is what gets us labeled as selfish people who only care about those who are like us. The reality is that, 99 times out of 100, we are not the one facing persecution—at least, not for being Christian.
Having such a large chip on your shoulder is not good. It’s exactly what leads to the politics of resentment we see today, where people are willing to compromise their Christian principles to go after “the enemy.” You know, where you hear Christians talking about “owning the libs” and “liberal tears.” It’s almost as damaging as the other childish attitude of “you can’t tell me what to do!”
