Defining "victim"

Kid being bullied
The Mullahs at Family Research Council and American Family Association are in full batshit mode over a US Army email. The email correctly refers to both organizations as hate groups. According to Tony Perkins on (where else?) Fox News:
The message is very clear – if you are a Christian who believes in the Bible, who believes in transcendent truth, there is no place for you in the military.
Self-victimization is their favorite indoor sport.

Let me explain what a real victim is:

[Insert name] is a seventh grader at [fill in the blank] Junior High School. Every day, he goes to school in fear because every day he is on the receiving end of anti-gay bullying. Some days he is ridiculed and taunted in front of other students but those are the better days. Some days, members of the school's football team beat him up. Teachers know and even see the bullying. Yet, they do nothing about it.

Kids, across the country, come home from school beaten down and bloody every single day. Some of this bullying is the direct result of the rhetoric that hate groups like Family Research Council and American Family Association broadcast every day. They cynically cloak their hate in expressions of "love for homosexuals."

Then, when schools try to take measures to reduce bullying, these same hate groups feign outrage and attempt to label such measures as "anti-Christian."

So cut the crap Tony and Tim. It is relatively easy not to be labeled a "hate group."
