    Are there any examples in your area?
    How can one avoid bringing unnecessary persecution on himself?

      Ok. Let me start with some of my opinions and let's see how you guys think about that.
      1. First of all, when somebody does not know rules and regulation where he lives  in his respected country. Most of the country has rules and regulation for governing the government justly and if somebody does not know what the law is forbidden  or allowed, he may not know how to respond when it needs to consult the local authorities or government. Then, if he does not know any rule, even if he is falsely accused by some issues, he would not be able to prove and that lack of knowledge leads him to needless persecution upon himself .

      Second,  When he does not know what is the teaching of the Bible with regards to sufferings and persecution. Perhaps, he may not have any idea about how to respond persecution in his life? Of course, there are some issues that we can not escape being knowing the way to respond, but what i am saying is how to respond properly.

      Third,  misunderstanding the real enemy which is Satan who works days and nights to destroy Christian in various ways.

      Ok, let me pause right hear, if you guys have something to contribute, you can take your time!

    I don't think you can blame people for being persecuted based on their race, religion, sexuality nationality, gender etc. Persecuted groups get persecuted when the draw attention, but why should they have to hide?

      I think breaking rules from ignorance is just a mistake.  Not being [insert demographic group]. Most of us live in civil societies where we respect shared laws and accept diverse customs.

      Ignorance concerning the laws you break are not a valid defense in our courtsand, this is as it should be. As you travel from state to state, most intelligent people should be aware that each state might have different laws. Helmet use on motercycles is a good example. The fact that your state doesn't require the use of a helmet, doesn't mean that every state has the same laws. If you intend to drive the highways in another state, it is your responsibility to find out what the laws are are.

      Not knowing what the bible has to say on any given subject is irrellevant unless you decide to buy into the christian religion. The christian religion has nothing to do with our laws and never will as long as America remains a secular nation, thank god for that, lol.

      The use of this satan character to justify immoral behavior is nothing more than a cop out. Every intelligent person out there has an understanding of right and wrong. Some accept responsibility for their actions and the rest state that the devil made them do it. The church's continual blaming of satan for all the problems christians face, and mistakes they make, simply allows christians to commit crimes on credit. Those who believe that all they have to do is say my bad god, to recieve a pass on thier transgressions are more inclined to continue committing these transgressions.

      While ignorance is not a valid defense in this country, out right stupidity is. Why do we seek to protect the criminally stupid from their own actions. This just allows more of them to continue breeding. If a person is not smart enough to realize that hot coffee is hot. That a styrofoam cup bends and spills it's contents, they deserve the burn that most people know is coming. This country seeks to reward the stupid for their stupidity and punishes those who retain the ability to think for themselves.
