There is another religious sect now growing in the United States. The number of its adherents is growing. Its number of intense practitioners is multiplying. The number of its low key sympathizers is growing. I am calling it the ABC religion. ABC stands for Anything But Christianity. Prominent tenets of ABC doctrine include public support for abortion, normalization of deviant sexuality, public indoctrination of youth in evolutionary myth, freedom for violence in entertainment, acceptance of vulgar speech, intolerance for Christian sentiment and practice and evangelism, freedom for sexual immorality (except for when even ABC people are embarrassed), and popularity of pagan entertainment in various forms. Is Islamic persecution of Christians, in Africa and Asia, fair? Obviously not. Do the People’s Republic of China or North Korea treat Christians fairly? No way. Is persecution of Christians within Hindu-majority populations fair? Is the treatment of non-Russian Orthodox citizens within the Russian orbit fair? No. Be ready: the mistreatment of U.S. Christians is not and will not be fair. But twisting or abandoning Christian values in hope of moderating the unfairness is not a good strategy or a successful defense. “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them ….” Hebrews 13:3
