I am pretty sure that no-one ever vandalizes a car because it has a christian logo on it.

Also realize that it a christian principle to not harm and to forgive others so while every incident of a darwin sticker being vandalized makes headline news since its man-bites-dog, vandalism against a christian or church is a dog-bites-man story.

My life includes being asked very inappropriate questions about my church and faith by an atheist interviewer for medical school. I had to meet with the dean to ask that that interviewer's remarks about me were not biased.

The Crusades. The Inquisition. The Witch Trials. Every gun- and sword-point conversion.

Funny then that the man-bites-man stories don't get more coverage. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2015/07/22/georgia-church-with-lgbt-affirming-pastor-vandalized-with-graffiti/

None of these examples are from the Bible, rather humans corrupting God's good teachings.

As to your article, I've seen that on several news sites over the past few weeks. Let me add that, while I condone the actions of the vandals, I agree that a pastor should not and cannot live in active sin and still pretend to teach the word of God. That includes pastors who are practicing homosexuality, gambling, gossip, lying, cheating, having affairs, etc. Hidden sins and struggles are one thing, but opening flaunting your defiance of God is not the actions of a true believer.

...interviewer for medical school.

It could be very appropriate to screen out from medical professions anyone who profess young earth creationism or other nonesense for instance - was this the case?

Utter rubbish. Also your claims about inappropriate questions about your faith, I'm not too sure about that. I could only think that if questions were asked it would be because if you were a jehovahs witness then being in the medical profession would be at odds with certain beliefs of the said religion.

Ok, so I could say that your atheism may motivate you to be uncaring to the mindless upright walking animals you are supposed to be caring for. See the problem?

Even if you don't understand why it is inappropriate to ask about an applicant's beliefs, the government rules clearly state it was inappropriate.

EDIT: With every inappropriate downvoat you bring Voat just a little bit closer to being Reddit.
