"The secular media demonizes Christians."
"The Western media demonizes Muslims."
"Everybody's after the Jews."
"The anti-Christian forces are gathering to stop the spread of Jesus's love."
"It's Satan!"

Whine, whine, whine! Sure there are some people who want to screw all those groups (espcially the Jews historically and the Muslims currently) but what makes all these religions think they are so oppressed? They have millions, in the case of Christianity and Islam, billions of members. Their leaders are more powerful than the leaders of some political groups. And whenever there is a war, they usually either started it or are fighting amongst each other (Christians vs. Muslims, etc)

What is it about this group of religions that creates the delusion that their religion is "the most perscuted?" Is it in the historical formation of these religions? What is it?

I don't know.

But....

You need proof of native american heritage to practice some aspects of our religious ceremonies.........and some times the way natives engage in prayer is against the law in some places.

you know i think its all seen as something to make you think they're all oppressed what's oppressing is the damn thing called a war when it isn't a war its an invasion, an occupation or whatever you wanna call it. its over the oil, the region and the holy land so promient in all three major religions.

all of the religions came from the middle east.
Russia has a very large number of Orthodox Christians and Russia is an eastern nation.
