Persecution For Reading and Holding To Wrong Views

Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year Army veteran and conservative Christian based at Fort Myer in Washington, believes his outspoken opposition to gay marriage prompted higher-ups to take a closer look at his beliefs. The recipient of an Army Commendation Medal and a soloist at the funeral of former First Lady Betty Ford, Sommers said his core beliefs are enough to mark a soldier for persecution in today’s military.
It seems like with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – that the Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet – for fear of retaliation and reprisals,” Sommers told Fox News. “Christians feel like they can’t be forthright with their faith. They have to hide.”

Yup that won't ever happen with a Muslim. Christians are easy prey because they don't retaliate with violence. Nor do they bully and persecute others. By the way, standing on principles, especially biblical ones, and thus declaring sodomy to be immoral is not persecution. Its merely stating a biblical fact.
