Question: How do you persecute a Christian in a "christian" country?
Answer: Prosecute them under "hate-crimes" law.
Look at the ridiculous stupidity of the Canadian government here. The "Alberta Human Rights Commission" have ruled against pastor Stephen Boissoin and The Concerned Christian Coalition Inc, and all because he [gasps] protested against the promotion of homosexuality to five year olds.
One wonders what manner of pea-brained bigots are ruling Canada right now. As it is written,
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Prov. 29:2. Bold added)
And here is an interesting video (on another subject) related to the immoral fascist behavior of the Alberta "human rights commission".
Anyway, please pray for the growing persecution that will be coming on the Church in the Western world. Pray for Pastor Boissoin that he will continue to stand for God even as he prepares to appeal to a real, non-kangaroo court of law. Pray that the peace of God will be with him and that, regardless of the final ruling, he will not recant but will be able to joyfully stand with the apostles in saying
Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard (Acts 2:19b-20)
Amen. May our Lord get the glory through the suffering of His saints.
