Death threats in the United States

It seems to be some kind of norm in certain parts of the United States, that if a secular/atheist person acts in any way so that people's constitutional rights are respected, or if anybody acts in any way that's offensive to the Christians in those parts, that person will receive numerous death threats, not to talk about endless harassment and insults.

Let's ponder a bit about the sheer hypocrisy.

If we were to pick the two of the most important core values in the Bible, something that basically every single Christian agrees to (including these people who issue death threats,) that would be the 10 commandments and the so-called Lord's prayer.

Let's emphasize two passages from these two most fundamental parts of the Christian creed. One of the 10 commandments says:

Thou shalt not kill

The Lord's prayer says:

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us

Now think about that for a moment. The exact same people who would agree to these passages as some of the most important teaching to all people, are the same who issue death threats and harass those who just want their constitutional rights to be upheld.
