    Hi, I think it depends on what is being asked. We do not have different legislative laws for Christians vs. Jews. Both have equal access to government funds for the being taxed. I have seen Israeli budgets and know that is not true for your minority. Equal rights to move around the nations, own land, to marry others of the same religion and have them seek citizenship, ect.... Israel does not have equal laws in practice for these things for non-Jews. Our nations are not "Christian" by legislation, which was true in the Dark Ages to some time in the beginning to middle of the last century, depending on the nation in question. We are "Christian" by majority. And, even now, when the "Christian" right gets in a huff about us being a "Christian" nation, they are told not just by Jews, Muslims, Atheists and Pagans to back down, but other Christians. Because this attitude can lead to legitimized and legislated discriminations.
