Several disagreements, but of degrees

"most that think they know (anything) really have no clue and how the most believe that just because a person say they are Christians, that they really are"
---That is the "not a real Christian" fallacy. Interpretations of the Bible are just that, interpretations. I fully respect you and everyone else that thinks they have it figured out. My family thinks they are the real Christians. There is just no way to know, at least not objectively. For every reason you might claim supports your claim, there is an equal opposite. Maybe if Jesus had actually learned to read and write it would be less confusing.

It is difficult to address your comment about gay people, but it is clear you don't see reality. There are dozens of Christian groups that treat homosexuality as an addiction or a crime. Anyone that disagrees that two, or more, people that want to share life in marriage and raise children, etc... are against freedom.

The big one is this: NO! "Christians" are not protected by the Constitution. Remember that Ron Paul guy? Individuals are protected by the Constitution. I, like Ron Paul, do not see people as a collective. Saying Christians are protected by the Constitution is claiming the Constitution gives preferred treatment to a certain "type" of person.

"In the grand scheme of things, no, but funny how we get grief from those that don't believe, just because. lol."
--- There is nothing in the enlightenment/libertarian philosophy that protects you from "grief". Making fun of someone or not giving them special treatment is not persecution. You can believe anything you want. But, your belief should not influence me, the laws that effect me, or my government. We live in the most religious nation on Earth and overwhelmingly Christian. Luckily we have the wisdom of the founders like Paine and Jefferson (not "real" Christians) to lead the way.
