Unfortunately they do, though in ways that can't be challenged in a court of law. They've pretty well perfected the art of making invisible prisons.


I've been wondering if (and to what extent) the Christian Persecution thing is exaggerated. Christians are persecuted for their faith, obviously, but do other faithful face any less persecution on the whole? I know fundies love to embellish various evidences of their great faith, and my view of the evangelical crowd isn't much less cynical.

Dear SFL Forum Reader:

What I always find amazing is that even when MasculineChirstianMan's observation re: secret prisons is mentioned, no one thinks 'Star Chamber' or 'extra-judicial imprisonment.' Nobody smells the fascism.
