It starts somewhere
Christians in the United States have never been publicly persecuted for their faith -- yet. But when a President visits a Catholic university and tells them to cover up every hint that it is a Christian institution so he can speak, it sends chills up the spines of those who watch the patterns. When they do as he says, it ought to raise an outcry. When the major news media hardly notice San Franciscans stomping old women and attacking churches because an election didn't come out as some (not most) had hoped, it rings a solemn historic note that lingers. And then when the legislature nearly orders the (impossible) reorganization of the largest Christian institution in the world, we ought to be speaking out for our right to worship God in the USA, while speech is possible.
