Persecution of Christians

I'm going to talk about a hard subject. The truth is that dominionist Christians in America are persecuted. You see their beliefs conflict with the long cherished belief in a separation of church state, and hence they are hemmed in. They would like to be running things, but that is impossible under our current system. So they are prevented from achieving their natural place in America and isn't that terrible?

But of course letting the Dominionists have their way is ultimately not a very appetizing prospect to the rest of us.

On the other hand, expressions of religious feeling in the public square have not been persecuted, despite David Limbaugh's claims to the contrary.
Do the God-mocking among us doubt the Clintons' sincerity and thus not perceive them to be a threat to their sacred church-state separation doctrine? Or could there be some other reason we don't see hysterical editorials when the power couple mention Jesus Christ, as when Hillary recently dragged Him and the Good Samaritan into the immigration debate?
I've been working on this post for two hours now and I keep forgetting to finish it. I guess that shows how interested I am in explaining how the problem isn't having religious beliefs. The problem is trying to impose your religious beliefs by force of law.
