Opinion: Secular left can’t harm Christianity

It’s interesting to see the latest installment in the secular left’s attempt to bring Christianity to heel with its “outrage” over a recent Indiana bill, passed in an effort to preserve religious freedom.
The secular left is generally uncomfortable with what Christ asks of us and is even more uncomfortable with Christians who so eagerly follow Him. Their anger over the Indiana law, and for that matter, their vitriol directed to the owners of a small pizzeria there, seems more an opportunistic attack on traditional Christianity than a defense of LGBT rights.
It’s as if the secular left resents Christians who have found Peace through Him as they instead search for a path to peace via their own intellect or actions. Through their attempts to delegitimize traditional Christianity, they feel they are given leave to search for an alternative answer that is more man-made. Sadly, their search will be in vain.
Traditional Christians, unfortunately, are all too familiar with this type of treatment. What the secular left doesn’t understand is that Christians have been persecuted for their belief for 2,000 years and every attempt to vanquish those who follow Him have, and always will, fail. This Easter season we celebrate the risen Christ and so long as He lives Christianity will continue to live as well.
