Christians are being oppressed in the US? Not likely. Christians, and other religious groups including Islam have been some of the biggest oppressors and persecutors throughout history. Of course, when they are not allowed to persecute everyone according to their religious desires, they insist that this is a form of persecution or oppression enacted against them!
Yes, I know that the Stalinist Empire and the Mao Tse Tung Empire were barbaric, cruel and bloodthirsty, but when you consider that virtually EVERY other skirmish known on the face of the planet has had a religious ideology going along for the ride, or as its primary agenda and focus, it makes religious ideology, the perpetrator of the majority of barbarism and inhumanity to mankind ever witnessed. Most wars, military adventures and colonialist ideologies have had at the basis of their endeavour, the belief and absolute faith that the inhumanity that they perpetrated upon other people was right and meet according to the will of their god or gods. The irony of war and conflict is that both sides have absolute faith that they are doing the will of their god or gods.
