"As Christians, we have had our way for such a long time that we don’t even recognise that being criticised isn’t really persecution..." I agree with this statement. Everyone is being criticize regardless of what religion they belong to, etc.

Do you think Christians are being persecuted or they are the real bullies?

Soon Christians will be accepted in the next minority groups into the intersectional circle jerk crowd. Feminists Christians, Muslims and all other minority groups can complain about oppression together.

As a Christian, I disagree with both your conjectures: we have been wiped out and we have never ruled. That includes the brief period under emperor Constantine when we were tolerated, but then genocide under the Ottoman empire killed millions. 2000 years of being murdered, raped and forcefully converted to Islam has lead to the picture of what the Middle East currently looks like. You don’t want the same thing in the western world.

Fair dues. That's no good either. Keep in mind that what you've described also rings true for non-Christians in a Christian society. So I'd suggest the takeaway here is that a dominant and aggressive religion that demands the conversion of non-believers is generally a bad thing. Or put simply, all the Abrahamic religions are rubbish.

Don't forget Islam has always practiced forced conversion, slavery or execution of nonbelievers. They did the exact same things as christians, sometimes better, sometimes worse. And who did it before that? The Israelites. Who did it before that? Probably another religion. China and North Korea persecute ALL religions, is that them imposing their religion? No. People have been imposing on each other for all of time.

No race or religion can hold their head high.
