Recently I wrote about the consequences of Christians' association with radical right-wing supporters and the anger it fostered in those outside our religion. As a result of this unfortunate alliance, we are entering an era of anti-Christian rhetoric, unlike anything seen in modern times. An example of this anticipated anti-Christian rhetoric appeared this week from a liberal-left media outlet - Boing Boing.

Skeptics found their skepticism validated and as strange as it may seem, to others, we now appear to be the exact opposite of what we believe. Yes, the change in administration will bring a more liberal agenda. Some changes will simply undo Trump's
