"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."
-- Pat Robertson, interview with Molly Ivins, 1993.
Oh, really? No one has ever suffered like you, oh White Christian Male?

Congratulations! You are less persecuted than: Jews, Africans, Native Americans, third-world populations, women, gays, and any minority in history! You are probably also contributing to the oppression of women, gays, and minorities.
Please, White Christian Males…don't make me come over there. You won't like it.
