Rachel Held Evans looks at the world and national LGBT news of the past couple of weeks and examines the evangelical Christian community’s involvement and reactions to it all.
” . . . despite enjoying majority status, significant privilege, and unchallenged religious freedom in this country,” she writes, “we evangelical Christians have become known as a group of people who cry ‘persecution!’ . . . But living in a pluralistic society that also grants freedom and civil rights protection to those with whom one disagrees is not the same as religious persecution. And crying persecution every time one doesn’t get one’s way is an insult to the very real religious persecution happening in the world today.”
