**Christians at times have had to be bold to get a chance to even be heard. **
Absolutely! And we may soon see Christians persecuted like they currently are in China.
Although we aren't to the level that the Chinese Christians face, we are certainly under the gun in this country. God has been taken out of our public schools, the Ten Commandments are being torn down and taken away from public squares. Every Christmas, Christian symbolism is being attacked and taken away from the public arena. Many television programs mock Jesus Christ and Christians. If you speak your personal convictions you may face losing your job like the Catholic the other day that spoke out against homosexuality in Maryland.
It's getting kind of scary here in America lately.
