I think we need statistics Harridan otherwise it is generalised speculation. Like I say the Christians persecuted each other a lot too remember.
Agreed, but can anyone think of another group that they imagine is persecuted less than Christians? Have to say I'm not really swayed by the argument that because Christians have persecuted other Christians that they've had it rough.

Your error is the typical liberal error of ranking the persecution of trendy groups like gays and transgenders above that of those persecuted because of their religious beliefs
Here's a cheery statistic, though, a trans person in the US has a 1 in 12 probability of being murdered and between 2008 and 2010 over 500 trans people were murdered worldwide. Trendy or not, that does need some attention, I assume you would agree.
