Use of extreme tolerance and equality by far-left Liberals to remove Christianity is increasing in the USA
Satan’s first attempt to use politics to persecute Christians began with Madalyn Murray O’Hair, Steven Engel, and Ellery Schempp. They used the U.S. Constitution to declare prayers and reading of the Bible in public schools, violating the law.
Christian persecution and martyrdom worldwide are much worse today than at any time in history, reveals ACN. An increasing number of Liberal-Atheists in the USA no longer hide their hostility towards Christians. Here are examples:
- Prayers are banned in public schools, but Satan School Club is OK.
- The display of the nativity should be removed from public property; it’s unconstitutional.
- Cross memorials in public places should be removed.
- The Bible is banned in classrooms.
- Christian prayer was removed from government invocation.
- Malls like Macy’s calls the Christmas tree the “Great Tree.”
- Going to church is non-essential, but abortion clinics are.
1. Jack Philips: “Poster child” of LGBTQ persecution
Christian baker Jack Philips was first sued in 2012 after refusing services to a gay couple. He was sued twice after the courts decided in his favor. In 2019, the case was finally dropped after evidence showed “ongoing hostility” toward religious freedom.
Just when you think it’s over, Phillips faced the third lawsuit for refusing to make a “gender transition cake” this time.
The list of LGBTQ bullies grows, and politics is now used to silence Christians. In April 2021, photographer Emilee Carpenter fought liberal New York for its “public accommodation law.” The law makes it illegal to refuse service to anyone—even if her faith and values are compromised.
Carpenter refused to reply to at least seven requests from “same-sex couples.” If she refuses, the law can punish her with fines, jail, and losing her job.
2. U.S. Democrats want to close churches
According to USA Today, left-liberal Democrats want to close churches, promote LGTBQ in schools, raise taxes, and pay for sex reassignment surgery. Other examples of Christian persecution include bills that undermine religious freedom.
During the pandemic, Grace Community Church senior pastor, John MacArthur, was threatened with imprisonment for gathering for worship. California’s Democrat Governor and Mayor led the crackdown on any gathering, even if unconstitutional.
3. Discrimination against Christian schools
The state of Montana’s Blaine Amendment, or the “No-Aid” provision, barred state aid to religious schools. It was motivated by bigotry against Catholic immigrants, according to Eric Rassbach. [Separation of church and state]

President Biden threatened to punish religious schools, organizations, and churches if they went against the parameters of the gender equality act. In 2022, the Christian school Ozarks College filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration because it forced them to adopt a policy that makes dorm rooms and shower spaces open to any sex or gender.

Difficult times ahead, says Timothy
The problem, Revelation 13 describes a similar beast in which the dragon (Satan) gave his power and authority to persecute followers of Jesus towards the end times.
The book of Revelation is a glimpse of what is to come, but the book of 2 Timothy summarizes the kind of millennial persecution happening. It is associated with the powerful political and demonic liberal influence sweeping many countries.
2 Timothy 3-6
“But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!”
