Christian "Victimists"

"...nothing in the modern church is more anti-Christian than those Christians and Christian leaders in public life who play the politics of resentment and pass their followers off as 'a small, persecuted minority' when they are not.

....Shame on such a deliberately chosen strategy! The merciless persecution of Christians in many parts of the non-western world, simply for confessing Christ, is a crime. And, there is unquestionably a good deal of anti-Christian bias and prejudice in parts of Western society today...But a strategy of victim playing to defend the latter should be unthinkable for followers of Christ. Put simply, it is factually misleading, morally hypocritical, politically ineffective and psychologically dangerous."
