A good article whether you're a Christian or not. I have never understood why liberals are so threatened by Christians, yet they embrace Islam. It really makes no sense. 

The independent Christian movie “I Can Only Imagine” performed far better than anyone could have imagined at the box office last weekend, bringing in $17.1 million when it was only expected to sell between $2 million and $4 million in tickets.

Why? Because people of faith in this country are speaking loudly. The elitists on the left who continue to ridicule Christianity while they preach at us to coexist need to stop talking and start listening.

Once upon a time kids of politicians were off limits. Now the anti-Christian crowd has gone so far off the rails they justify using kids as well as their pets as a bullying platform to spew their personal hatred for Christianity. Apparently, anything is fair game if you’re attacking a person of faith.

If you observe the hatred you hear directed at Christians, in just about every instance it’s been responded to by taking the high road with dignity and class. That’s because as Christians we don’t look to Hollywood, or its high-profile counterparts for validation. They are not our hope for the future. If they truly want to coexist, they need to start listening and stop ridiculing.

I can only imagine what would happen if those who hate Christians could trade their hate for the hope this movie inspires, instead of continuing to perpetuate a hostile culture that assaults people of faith in this country. If they would start listening and stop mocking, then we could all start coexisting.

Sure it does.  There's one difference.  Jesus.
It's how you know you got the right one.

They don't respect the 1st Amendment.

yet they embrace Islam.

Not this liberal.  Islam is worse than Christianity.  

Once upon a time kids of politicians were off limits.
 
Once upon a time, criticizing religion was off limits.  No more.

Now the anti-Christian crowd has gone so far off the rails they justify using kids...
 
I have no idea what you're referring to here.

How many personal attacks to I endure on this site over my criticisms of Christianity?  

That’s because as Christians we don’t look to Hollywood, or its high-profile counterparts for validation.
 
Oh boy, here comes the self-righteousness...

They are not our hope for the future. If they truly want to coexist, they need to start listening and stop ridiculing.

What does any Christian have to say that we haven't already heard?  

I can only imagine what would happen if those who hate Christians could trade their hate for the hope this movie inspires

How many times are you planning on using the word "hate" in this post?  Typical projecting from the right.

instead of continuing to perpetuate a hostile culture that assaults people of faith in this country.
 
Assaults?  You're trying to shut down criticism.  

It's better to not be able to answer the question then not be able to question the answer.  

If they would start listening and stop mocking, then we could all start coexisting.

Atheists are the ones fighting for acceptance and tolerance from the Christian majority, not the other way around.  Articles like this have you so twisted you've got everything backwards.

A lot of Liberals ARE Christian, so it's not that they are threatened by Christians, it's that they see Christiana as a threat the rights of two groups they pander to: women who don't want to have a baby and people who are attracted to people with the same genitals they have.
You can't really argue that they're wrong....

Oh, and Libs are really scared of guns and Christians seem to really like guns.

"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

women who don't want to have a baby
Really? There's a way to not have a baby that doesn't involve killing it.
Or has our world moved on past that?

I'm not necessarily debating the whether or not abortion should be legal. I'm just saying that each side, right and left, has their areas that they want to protect.  It just so happens that Christians tend to threaten two areas that are very important to the Left.

Sorry supporting gay marriage, and abortion are not Christian. They can call them selves Christians all they want but they are not.  
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
