David Benham: ‘Persecution Is Coming!’

There’s a powerful narrative circulating that Christians are on the brink of persecution in America.

(Let’s set aside, for the moment, that white American Christians are arguably the most powerful, wealthiest group of human beings in human history.)

Here, ancient Rome is held up as a direct example of what American Christians may soon face.

And here’s my response: this comparison is a disgrace to the martyrs.

Haven’t you the least amount of shame? As you prance around the country raking in speaking fees, you dare to desecrate the suffering and death of the martyrs by comparing yourself to them?

Sickening.

We need to do better than this. We have to do better than this.
