Persecuting religious minorities that are perceived as a political threat is a time-honored American tradition.
This is not intended to be a political post, but one that reflects of the history of religious persecution in the United States. If you find that to be a controversial political topic, so be it. In the past, when Americans have suspected that a religious group is undermining it’s country’s free, democratic political order, we have demanded—often violently—some radical action against that group. Let that past stay in the past.
