Angry leftists on Twitter attack Christians with profane anti-prayer hashtag

Anti-Christian bigots — otherwise known as “Christophobes” — took to Twitter in an effort to attack Christians with the profane hashtag, #F*ckYourPrayers (Edited for language), Twitchy reported Monday.

“…[A}s per usual,” Twitchy said, “vicious lefties have seized on yesterday’s deadly mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, as not only an opportunity to attack the NRA and gun owners, but also to slime Christians and the notion of prayer.”

“I’ve seen GOP, gun laws, NRA, and PRAYER attacked, but so far not seeing big complaints on anti-Christian bigotry. If you have please share,” tweeted RedState Editor-in-Chief Caleb Howe.

Howe responded:

Wow, indeed.

Here’s just a small sample of the tweets we found:



Thankfully, not everyone was impressed with the bigoted hashtag and called out Twitter for its hypocritical double standard.

Why, indeed?  Maybe because the hashtag attacks Christians?






Could it be yet more proof that Twitter is where intelligence, reason and logic goes to die?

Another person observed:

Absolutely correct…  Sadly.

Probably not.

Even Democrats got hit with the hashtag, like Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who is no friend of the Second Amendment:

It’s no joke.  The Christophobia is thick on Twitter these days.

So what, exactly, is Christophobia?

MacMillan’s Online Dictionary defines it as: “intolerance of, hostility towards or discrimination against Christians.”

In a 2015 article published at Spokane Faith and Values, I noted:

The most extreme examples of modern Christophobia can be seen in the Middle East, where Christians — including children — are routinely murdered for refusing to accept Islam. One grisly account by Andrew White, an Anglican canon serving in Baghdad, says that ISIS militants cut a 5-year-old boy he baptized in two.

Granted, Christians in the west aren’t being cut in half, decapitated, fed to wild beasts or set on fire and used as lampstands — yet. We like to think we’re more civilized than that and so we like to use kinder, more gentler, forms of persecution. Keep in mind, that persecution does not automatically mean death.

In the west, we like to find more creative ways to attack Christians. Instead of killing them outright, we marginalize them, demonize them, mock them and treat them as less than fully human. We claim to celebrate “tolerance” and “diversity,” but those things are almost never extended to Christians.

Where can one find Christophobia in the west? That’s easy. Turn on the television. Read the news. As we will see in upcoming articles, Christophobia can be found in the media, the news, our entertainment, our education system, the political system, even in our government.

And keep in mind, this is not a liberal/conservative issue. Christophobia is bipartisan. It doesn’t matter if one is a Democrat or a Republican, supports Ted Cruz or Barack Obama. It doesn’t even matter what denomination one claims.

And now we can find it all over Twitter.  And it seems the social media outlet is just fine with it…

This, fellow conservatives, is the face of the modern, allegedly “tolerant,” left.  It’s ugly, and it’s only going to get worse.

Having said all that, let me leave you with this.  And I strongly encourage you — let this be our prayer for the country:
