US Congresswoman claims Christians are being persecuted in America but draws blank when asked for examples

The Family Research Council are going to be soooo angry at Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn:

At the South Carolina Freedom Summit, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN 7) advocated State Department intervention when asked what role the United States should play in protecting Christians around the world:
One of the things that we should be doing here is being very strong in our stance with religious freedom in our country... Our allies around the globe want to see us stay strong on our rights and not erode those rights... With the human rights violations and religious persecutions around the globe, we need a State Department that is going to step in and say, "This is not acceptable."
Blackburn thought that Christians are being persecuted in the U.S., but could not give any examples when asked by this reporter. Watch her remarks below:

I think that says it all regarding this "Christian persecution" nonsense. Thank you, Congresswoman Blackburn

Oh, you misunderstand. You see, like any rational god-fearing Christian, she doesn't mean the kind of persecution that goes on in other countries, like being killed merely for being Christian, for instance. She's talking about those OTHER types of 'persecutions'. You know! The type where they have to fight for their privilege to put up the ten commandments and pray to jesus at the state capitol, since it should be their religious freedom to express themselves however they lease as religious people, and so should anyone else. Unless, you know, they happen to be Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, Hindi, Pagan, Wiccan, Buddhist, or generally anything that isn't Christian, of course. The right to tell others they shouldn't have the same rights as the poor oppressed Christians. THOSE types of persecution. Naturally. Silly you.

Marsha Blackburn is one great example of someone who knows the talking points but not the facts. Or maybe she thinks talking points are facts. Oh, wait, that means she can't think...

Anyway, I agree with Unknown.

She’s a special piece of work that one is.

I remember her on the House floor years ago justifying cuts to welfare benefits (paraphrased) “because people want big government out of their lives.”
