Nothing like reading how Christians love to make light of other people's spirituality while seeming to be oblivious of their own silliness. Yet somehow, despite their cultural dominion and how they can have the Gideons pass out Bibles at public school while denying pagans the ability to pass out books, they moan about how persecuted they feel.

I hear you. You should hear Christians moan about baking cakes!

You need a budget.....

That seems to be the trend. The Bible also says few will find salvation. Apparently the light isn't bright enough.

Galatians 3:13-15GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

13 Christ paid the price to free us from the curse that the laws in Moses’ Teachings bring by becoming cursed instead of us. Scripture says, “Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.” 14 Christ paid the price so that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to all the people of the world through Jesus Christ and we would receive the promised Spirit through faith.

The Relationship between Law and Promise
15 Brothers and sisters, let me use an example from everyday life. No one can cancel a person’s will or add conditions to it once that will is put into effect.

Actually a compromise was reached before it became a lawsuit. All faiths were welcome to set up a table one day a year. Students could participate or not. Agressive proslytzing was not. However, the main person behind it was Ginger Strivilli(?) who said she felt like she was being kidnapped when a non-school function took place 3 years later when they said a prayer on Veteran's day. She made the news for about 5 minutes before someone reminded them that she had done it before. Like the VP, she was never heard from again.
