The Virginia Faithful Shout “Take Me To The Coliseum!”

[Movie Trailer] Take Me To The Coliseum from NOVA Digital Films on Vimeo.

One of the projects I’ve been working on lately with the Virginia First Foundation and the Virginia Christian Alliance is a documentary where Pastors talk about the implications of the Supreme Court’s recent decision on marriage and how the Christian community should respond. It’s not a hypothetical that Christians in Virginia will be subjected to some degree of persecution as a result of this decision, given what we’ve seen happen elsewhere. It’s coming. We can’t be surprised when it arrives. Getting ready, at least spiritually, isn’t optional.

I’ve gotten the opportunity to meet quite a few really inspiring men of God so far, and their fearless devotion to the Word and steadfast courage is pretty inspiring. From all walks of life and across many denominations, there’s a clear and consistent determination out there that while government can do what it is wont to do, there’s a lot of folks out there who are going to stand firm no matter what.

He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:10-11

UPDATE: And within hours, the hate mail starts arriving.  Anyone thinking that the persecution of Christians is fanciful and farfetched should take a look at what’s arriving in my inbox about a movie by Christians, for Christians in their own community.

    Your brand of twisted Christianity.

    I can’t see your inbox, but unless your getting subpoenas from the Government for your religious view, I’d say that the chances of anyone in this country being “persecuted” for religious views is less than “hypothetical. This country is absolutely the best place on earth to be a person of faith, virtually any faith. That’s why we lure here tremendously gifted people of all the major faiths - because they can worship in peace without interference from the government.

    There are indeed places in the world where real persecution occurs. Persecution of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and any number of other religions, sects, and cults. To pretend that we are persecuted here significantly cheapens the very real violence visited on people of faith in other parts of the world.

    Funny you post this on the day Christians were executed by a deranged killer in Oregon who was possibly motivated by the leftist rhetoric of late that advocates class, racial and religious conflict.

    In case you missed the recent stories on the official persecution of Christians being waged by our state and federal governments lately, I’ll leave you this:

    The situation in Oregon sounds like a murder to me, not persecution. As you yourself noted, the guy appears to have been deranged. The world is full of loonies, some of them are dangerous. Some places are particularly dangerous to be when there are dangerous loonies out and about, because of the ready availability of weapons that can kill large numbers of people quite quickly. But that’s another issue.

    But let’s not trivialize the real evils of real persecution. Persecution is what happens when governments take lives and liberty because of religious beliefs. That’s what was happening in first century Rome in your Colosseum allusion. That’s what’s happening today in some places in Asia and in the Middle East. That’s clearly what happens when ISIS rolls into town. Persecution isn’t what’s involved when some government official decides to self-exempt from the law, but still expects the taxpayers to give her money to defy the law in a democratic, Constitutional Republic.

    In the context of your post, talk of persecution is utter nonsense. The Supreme Court’s ruling on secular marriage licenses from the states has no impact on religious marriages whatsoever. Religious institutions of any faith can still refuse to marry same sex couples or, if their theology requires it, refuse to marry opposite sex couples. No priest is ever going to be required to preside over a rite that he feels is contrary to his doctrines.

    Given the violence Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Baha’ais, Mormons etc. etc. have endured for their faiths over time, talk about “persecution” in the U.S. is silly and ignorant.

    Scout, it’s tough being a white middle-agd Christian male in today’s society. You just don’t know.

    Not particularly tough, Brother Spiker. I find it a rather easy street assignment in this country (other than the part about the ideals of Christianity being difficult to attain). The nice thing about the religion, however, is that you get credit for trying hard (or so I’ve been led to believe). Just in terms of ambient degree of of difficulty and external stress, however, I think I’d much rather be a Christian male in this country than a Muslim, Jew, or Hindu of either gender.

    Meanwhile Greg thinks he and some other like thinkers are being readied to be loaded into the tumbrils. One of us is really quite deluded.
