Michael S,

You should honestly read ancient history. Christians and Jews have experienced persecution (1) First by the soldiers of the Roman empire (2) Second by what the Roman emperor Constantine gave birth to the Roman Catholic Church where true Christianity was blended with sun worship to produce the Roman Catholic Church. Ever notice how the Roman Catholics bow before statues and have a different set of 10 commandments which leaves out the commandment about bowing before idols? (3) Haven't you ever studied the United States was founded upon Christians escaping Roman Catholic's pope's persecution in Europe? (4) Jews have prospered in America because America was not under Roman Catholic authority like all the Latin American nations. (5) Many American Christains support the nation of Israel have you noticed? (6) Have you also noticed the Vatican sending waves of Roman Catholics illegally across the US border regions? Roman Catholic priests support this illegal move. (7) Have you noticed Roman Catholics like Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry spewing out hatred for Israel? (8) These are differences you haven't noticed Michael.
