Non sequiturs

1) A kid is slapped in the face by his teacher. Your outrage is hypocritical since you don’t seem to care that numerous kids across the country are being punched by a school bully every day. An assault is an assault whether it comes from an authority figure or a peer. (see Isa 10:1-2; Jer 22:16-17)

2) Christians have suffered from systemic persecution, therefore when a Christian suffers it must be persecution. (See 1Pet 4:15-16)
