It's the top excuse for anyone who harasses and puts down Christians. I'm not sure if they're denying it out of spite, or if they're really that blind.

And they all refuse to acknowledge how frequent and popular it is. It doesn't matter if Christianity is the 'most popular' religion. Seriously, when was the last time ANYONE insulted homosexuality (at least without getting away with it)? And yet people still complain about it and bash us for being the cause.
I rarely go a day, or a week at the most, without being bullied for my religion or seeing someone else be bullied.
Actually, I take that back. It's not bullying. Bullying implies that you're picking on someone just for the heck of it because they're an easy target. This is legitimate hate, where people WANT to hurt us, WANT to take us down, and WANT to kill us.
And to think these same people turn around and tell me I'm overreacting because "nothing's wrong", and that me trying to speak out against it like this is judging and bigotry.
But heck, what am I trying to pull off by speaking out? I know it will never stop and it will only get worse. The bright side, however, is that any negative comments or replies will only be proof of my point.
