I’ve always found grating the claims of some pundits that Christians, a huge majority of the American population, are some sort of downtrodden, persecuted minority. Usually what’s meant is that in a pluralistic society, it’s less and less the case that one group’s religious conception is woven into the public legal structure, and that cultural products geared to appeal to a wide variety of citizens will be less likely to consistently embed and celebrate the same set of Christian values. There’s a lengthy takedown here of one such screed, David Limbaugh’s Persecution.
