a bit of persecution can be good for you?

Following up on my previous post on the Westminster Declaration:

James Cary has a nice turn of phrase in an article ‘Crosses to bear’ in Third Way, May 2010.

Christians would do well not only to look to Jesus but to Daniel and his friends. When they defied the orders of Nebuchadnezzar in order to follow the Lord they did so knowing that they would receive unjust lethal punishment. They did not whine that this was unfair, but accepted their fate because they deemed their faith to be worth dying for. If British Christians baulk at the odd tribunal, what are they really saying about their faith?’

So, should Christians not pursue their rights to freedom of religion and accept in faith whatever comes their way?
