There's something called "separation of church and state." Is that what you're trying to think of? Because in a country like America, where everyone is free to their beliefs and equal, the government can't be biased. Unfortunately, America hasn't reached that point yet. Stem cell research isn't being federally funded because it conflicts with Christian morals. But no matter what you can't deny the benefits of stem cell research, so why are we letting people die of possibly curable diseases just because people think that fetuses have living souls? Dude, Catholics are Christians because they worship God and Jesus. They're just like the Mormons, though, they have different minor beliefs.
Jesus is the Son of God. He's known as God on Earth because of what he did. There's a difference between "Hey, I created the universe and all that" and "Hey, I can turn water into wine, cure blind people, and I hang with lepers." Then again, sure, it could all be up to interpretation. That doesn't mean that other religions are wrong. It just means that Solomon didn't have his own shit together. His faith wasn't strong enough. You know what's another fact? Christianity is the most practiced religion worldwide.
It holds the Guinness World Record for "most prevalent religion." So, no, it can't be the most persecuted.
