← Blessed are those with a persecution complex?

Many or most Christians and Muslims are professional victims. Where there is no actual persecution, they will invent it. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out. My guess is that Muslims will gain much more advantage for expressing their "religion" in public, on the job, etc., and for gaining "religious concessions" due to their incessant threats of violence, violence, law suits, etc. whereas Christians will mostly just have to suck it up.

I mean, haven't Muslim health care workers in the UK already been given "concessions" on necessary hygiene because of their "religion"? I think I read a few articles about this a year or so ago. What germs?
