Why do Christians scream persecution when people criticise their religion?
After all Christians also criticise scientists and atheists Jews Muslims and gays let's not forget that.
Because criticism is good to see flaws in yourself or your group so the next time you can improve to make it better.
But Christians reject criticism and dish out on people where as scientist are used to criticism and welcome it.
I think Christians are very shallow selfish egotistical people!

I see you've not met many Christians then, outside of maybe some low-level tabloid trash articles that pander to writing about the Westboro Baptists all the time to gain a struggling number of viewers/readers invested in cheap controversy and gross, inaccurate generalizations.
Most Christians are people just like you and me.
Not all Christians play the "persecution" card.
Many/Most Christians know exactly what real persecution looks like, and can probably pinpoint particular countries where REAL persecution against Christians is happening on a continual and widespread basis. For example, China, North Korea, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Romania, Albania, Turkey, Indonesia, Nepal, Myanmar...

Not all Christians do, but or those that do see persecution in so many places are doing so because they have been told, by reading their bible or by people who have interpreted the bible, that they are to expect persecution.

yes, they do - but given the institutional encouragement of various kinds of victims which exists in our society today, it's hardly surprising that so many are lining up to be classed as victims and therefore needing special treatment or protections.
there is just one problem with this - victims are not leaders or moral authorities.
so, people might even succeed in being perceived as victims, but they do so only at a loss of their own power...

Because the bible claims that the Jesus character said they would be persecuted if they followed him. So, they have to imagine that they're being persecuted at every turn otherwise that might mean they're not really following him........

They accuse others of persecuting them when they don't want people scrutinizing their behavior, or what they claim are their rights. The tactic is called deflection.

I think you are telling lies about what other people believe. Is that an example of your "superior" morality?
