I heard Christians are jailed/killed when they go to churches in United States. The bloke said it’s Obama’s directive. I’m surprised—I’ve been a regular member of Quora, but never read that before now. Is it true?
It is true that some high profile televangelists and pastors have been jailed, but not because they were Christians and went to church. (Maybe they put out such erroneous stories; I don’t know.) They were jailed for such embarrassing behaviour as sexual crimes and tax fraud.
One example is Ken Hovind, an American Christian fundamentalist evangelist, tax protester, and Young Earth creationist. QUOTE: Hovind began serving a ten-year prison sentence in January 2007 for federal court convictions for failing to pay taxes, obstructing federal agents, and structuring cash transactions.
Much as Christians like to view themselves as being persecuted for Christ’s sake, being jailed for criminal action is in no way persecution; it is justice for society when a criminal is made to do time. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW, much as they may like to think they are, not so long as they share a legal and financial system with the rest of us.
