Why has it become acceptable in our society to publicly and maliciously hate Christians? Recent examples in just this past week include attacking Mike Pence at the Oscars, forcing Mike Huckabee off the Country Music Foundation's Board of Directors and vicious articles about Billy Graham at his death. As anyone following our popular culture and the media in the past several years would know, these attacks are not unusual. They are now commonplace. Why has spewing hate at a group of citizens in our society because of their sincerely held religious beliefs become acceptable, even encouraged? Is this the inclusive society I keep hearing so much about? We need as a society to ask what is the end game of all this, and who is next?
