Rev. Dr. Bruce E. Bryce isn't laughing.
Bryce, the congregational care pastor at the in , wrote an April 24 letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in which he asks for respect for Christians when it comes to ridicule.
"When a Jew or Muslim is degraded, offended or ridiculed, it's called anti-Semitism," Bryce writes. "When the public display of the Ten Commandments is challenged, it's called civil liberty. When a Christian is humiliated, satirized or dishonored, it's called comedy."
Bryce has wondered if the "Golden Rule" no longer applies.
"Maybe it only depends on if it gets a laugh or not," he writes.
