Will a Democratic President Martyr Christians for Their Belief?
No never. Of course not. In fact, most of the Democratic candidates in this cycle, along with the last several Democratic presidents, have made some kind of Christianity. But that will not stop the Republicans from a false alarm,
Last week, during a debate between two conservatives, New York Post Editor (and Catholic) Sohrab Ahmari took the extreme view of his (evangelical) opponent David French, of National review,
… One side, represented by a prominent Catholic journalist, evidently warned seriously about a future in which Christians are thrown to the lions, as in ancient Rome, where Bernie Sanders plays the role of Emperor Nero.
Ahmari, a 34-year-old Iranian immigrant who converted to Catholicism three years ago, has adopted an apocalyptic approach to the cultural war against secular liberalism. He wrote in May that "progressive understand that Cultural war means discrediting their opponents and weakening or destroying their institutions, "
Given that Sanders is a Jew and more than familiar with the heritage of religious persecution, the idea that he will suddenly wage a war against Christians seems, at best … unlikely. (He must defeat the billionaires first.) This should all be obvious, but the logic was tight.
Ahmari spoke of "martyrdom" in the United States as if the execution of Christians because of their religious beliefs was a real danger, "Now there are people who are called to do that, and they will see it when it happens and they should," Ahmari said of the martyrdom. "And here there are also religious people … priests and so on, who are called to such a heroic life. But we should not want that for all Christians as long as we have political freedom. "
At least Frenchmen took him as seriously as he deserved:
French was amused. "Do you think Bernie Sanders would bring the Coliseum? He does not even intend to deal with Mitch McConnell. " Frenchmen said and referred to the Republican Senate majority leader.
Of course, the Frenchman also believes that there is a culture war out there that puts conservative Christians at risk, but he is more excited that bakers are not able to discriminate against gay couples. He worries about the dishes, not about the Coliseum.
Both, however, go too far. In a country where Christians get angry when Starbucks cups are not Christmas-enough, it's hard to imagine conservatives having the makings of dying for their faith. They would not make it that far. They can not even deal with the threat of equal treatment within the government.
