The Church of Harvey Fierstein
I'm a bit late to the pile-on, but this is too awesome not to share.
Plus ... it's not really hypothetical. I have personally been in that exact situation (well, a close analog anyway).
Orthodox Christians in Bulgaria have long denied Evangelicals many basic rights and privileges on the basis of their religious convictions. Seen it myself.
Then I got back to the States and--whoops!--the only difference between the godly remnant Evangelicals and the oppressive 'form-of-religion-but-denying-the-power-thereof' Orthodox was the extent and geographic distribution of their worldly power. Seeing my people doing to others what I had labelled persecution when done to us was a shock not easily recovered from, but one which would do a world of good to a very great number of people.
And which, let us add, I should dearly love to personally administer.
