Religious Oppression

So, John Kerry did a little speechifying about religious persecution, did he?

And for a moment, I thought perhaps he was addressing what’s been going on in the US itself.  I mean, he did say:
"This report shines light on the challenges people face as they seek nothing more than basic religious freedom and the right to worship as they wish," Kerry said. "And its release is a demonstration of the abiding commitment of the American people and the entire U.S. government to the advancement of freedom of religion worldwide."
And considering this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this, perhaps you can understand my error in thinking he was talking about the US.

Turns out, he was talking about Christian persecution abroad.

Certainly, the persecution of Christians is much more physical and violent overseas than here in the US of A, but persecution is persecution, and I think the only reason it hasn’t gotten physical is because of the constraints of our Bill of Rights.

Something that’s under assault even as I type this.
