Born-Again Holy Ghost Filled Christian Tea Party Republicans ( who were the owner/ boss and the older sister/ supervisor of the small company that I made the mistake of working there for far too long before Finally correcting MY mistake--BY QUITING) could tell the difference between being caught lying,cheat and stealing  AND True Persecution for Righteousness sake. Unfortunately, all too often the ones who are all to vocal are the ones who they themselves are the source of the trouble that is plaguing them.
