    …modern American society is attacking truth and comedy in ways that threaten the freedom of speech.

    The head of the popular Christian satire site gave a Monday lecture at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg. He listed ways society is attacking comedy and biblical truth through censorship.

    "We're living in crazy times, unusually crazy times, actually outrageous times where absurdity is everywhere," Dillon began. "Truth is under attack. Reason is under attack."

    "Comedy is under attack. And you can't speak up and try to defend any of these things, or they try to suppress your voice and silence you. Freedom of speech is under attack."

    Dillon said the world is "increasingly becoming more and more difficult" for Christians to speak "the truth boldly in the public square."

    One example, according to Dillon, was when churches in the United States could not gather to meet during the COVID-19 pandemic, but casinos, bars and strip clubs remained open…

    The Christian Post reporter covered this event and the info presented there very well. Christianity and conservatives are under attack in America today. The woke secular progressive left is working overtime to censor our voices and limit free speech and free exercise there of.

    The secular and the left hate the satire that comes from the Babylon Bee hits them so close to home and often becomes true in a matter of weeks to a couple of years.

    Godless grifters: How the New Atheists merged with the far right
    What once seemed like a bracing intellectual movement has degenerated into a pack of abusive, small-minded bigots

    Christianity is NOT being attacked by the religious and secular left, only the God-mocking grifters that have infiltrated the Christian movement with their ignorance and bigotry.

    So you're directing us to a large scale Christian news site to see a report (and linked video) of the owner of another large scale Christian website telling a large live audience in an established "megachurch" how much Christians are having their voices silenced?

    Yup, we are also persecuted too, by the ever devious and corrupt DNC propagandist and their ever-absorbent base. :(

    The sheer level of cognitive dissonance wouldn’t be something achievable if the church had not groomed the population as children to mindlessly have blind faith in whatever they were told.

    Faith in a higher power is one thing but organized religion is a plague upon the earth especially the pedophile Christian and Catholic Church.

    If rightists couldn't be victims, I'm not sure they would have the will to live. LOL

    They certainly still have the will to attack and try to destroy our country for revenge. Right now, they're already talking violence and civil war as retaliation for the rest of us holding trump to account for his crimes.
    I think we're heading for a showdown between Americans and those who put trump ahead of our country.

    Not an opinion article. The article By Nicole Alcindor, CP Reporter is a news report reporting on what was said at an event. You may not like what the reporter reported the person as saying, but that liberal bias of yours doesn’t make it a non news story to any fair minded neutral non biased observer.

    The bigotry of the big tech social media against the expression of evangelical forms of Christian belief on numerous topics is well known and what this is primarily about. The hostility there and in the lamestream news media to Christian humor and satire is well known as well.
