    I predict that western Christians will face persecutions more and more in the coming years.

    I have no idea what the world is coming to. I get extremely angry at this trend to silence people you do not agree with. I may not agree with what someone says but I would damn well fight for their right to say it. I belonged to a union that once wrote to me (and all members not just me) informing us that we could not vote for a particular political party. It is one I would not dream of voting for and was vehemently opposed to what it stood for. We were informed that we would be e4xpelled if we voted for the party. I ended up resigning my membership. I told them we live in a democratic society and if I want to vote for a political party that has not been proscribed I will and no one will tell me otherwise. Plus how would you know if I voted for them as we vote in the UK by secret ballot? It is this which is creating the young, woke generation.

    What about the trend of putting people you don't agree with into camps? :rolleyes:

    I support the trend. (You do mean pedophiles that threaten others safety, right?) :popcorn:

    Ain't that the truth. It happens in the most unlikely and unexpected places.

    Of course you know that wasn't what I meant, but I agree that offenders need to be imprisoned... after due process.

    It's worth pointing out that neither pedophiles nor anyone else are locked up for hypothetical, possible, potential harm they might perhaps someday do to someone else. Pedophiles get locked up for actual violations of law, real misconduct that directly caused harm.

    Shall we keep discussions in their relevant threads?
