From today’s TFN News Clips:
“It has always been a puzzling thing to me. The Bible even speaks of it, that, you know, you speak the name, ‘Jesus Christ,’ and I don’t – and I don’t mean to make a pun here, but all hell breaks loose. And – and it has always been thus. It is explosive.”

Note to Brit Hume: You don’t know what persecution is. Try being Jewish for the past 2,000 years. Live through the Inquisition, the Crusades, pogroms, and the Holocaust. Then you can talk about “all hell breaking loose.”
I’ll second that. Most of these jerks have no idea what real persecution is. The thing they call persecution is La-Z-Boy in the den with feet up annoyance. I see a lot of it around here where I live:
“And my sister’s new husband opened up a can of beer right there in the sandwich shop with me sitting there. I think he did it on purpose because he knows I am a Christian, and I feel so persecuted!!!!”
Well. Get over it sister. He just needed something liquid to wash down the sandwich.
