Commentary: Relativity and religious hostility

This ‘study’ conducted by the Liberty Institute claims that there is rising hostility towards Christians in today’s United States.

But last time I checked, Christian Americans were not seeing their churches burned to the ground.

Last time I checked, non-Christian Americans were not going into churches and shooting people at random.

Last time I checked, non-Christian Americans were not trying to stop Christians from constructing buildings where they could worship freely.

Last time I checked, Christian Americans did not have to answer to questions from non-Christian Americans over their degree of loyalty to the United States.

Last time I checked, Christian Americans were not considered un-American because they believed in the principles of their faith.

And last time I checked, Christian Americans were not questioned for infiltrating the United States government on behalf of a religious cause that is at odds with American security.

How is the Liberty Institute measuring ‘rising hostility’? ‘Rising hostility’ in comparison to whom or what? How do Christian Americans fare with ‘religious hostility’ in comparison to, say, Muslim Americans?
