    “Bible-affirming Christians (the ones that refuse to salute the new national rainbow flag) look to become the dissidents of the USA under the power and control of Democratic party members and politicians. ”

    But are failing miserably in the process since they are fighting for a right to discriminate against people for no rational and secular purposes imaginable. Nobody is bothering to persecute them. They are so disappointed. All that is left is martyrbation. Its like someone who wants to be a hero, so they start fires in order to be there for the rescue.

    Of course it takes real chutzpah to compare actual political dissidents opposing a dictatorship to self-important theocrats who want a right to treat people like crap.
