To the editor: According to some experts, a pattern is emerging reminiscent of Jewish persecution in post-war Germany.

“Isolation of, and discrimination against Christians is growing almost geometrically,” says Don McAlvany in The Midnight Herald. “This is the way it started in Germany against the Jews. As they became more isolated and marginalized by the Nazi propaganda machine, as popular hatred and prejudice against the Jews increased among the German people, wholesale persecution followed. Could this be where the growing anti-Christian consensus in America is taking us?”

Pastor David Jones and his wife Mary were hosting weekly study near their church in San Diego, Calif., when they said a county code enforcement officer visited them. According to Dean Broyles, an attorney for the Joneses, the county official asked the pastor if they hosted a regular weekly meeting in their home and if they prayed and said “amen” and “praise the Lord” at those meetings.

After replying in the affirmative to those inquiries, a subsequent citation notified the couple they were in violation of county regulations, should stop “religious assembly” and needed to apply for a “major use” permit to continue the gatherings, a process that could cost several thousand dollars.

Eric Harris of Columbine asked schoolmates if anyone believed in God. Cassie Rene Bernall stood up immediately and said, “Yes, I believe in God.” Eric shot her dead.

Are you ready to stand up for your Lord, brethren?
