Christian discrimination

Christians in the U.S. have faced many divisive debates over discrimination for centuries. Typically, each conflict has taken many decades to reach a compromise. Consider the history of slavery, racial segregation, allowing profoundly deaf couples to marry, women voting, the roles of women, interracial marriage, and the latest: the LGBT community. Most of these have been resolved. It is worth noting that all have been resolved in the direction of equal rights for all persons. I have no doubt but that the current conflict over transgender individuals will be resolved in favor of acceptance and equality. I sometimes wonder which will be the next group to be targeted after the attacks on transgender persons wind down in favor of acceptance.
