I agree with you 100%. God has told us this is what happens... it is so predictable for the person who knows Him.
By way of reminder from the Boss Himself...
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.”-John 15:18 (NIV)
“But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’” John 15:28 (NIV)
