From a very perceptive article by Stephen Tompkins:
“Religion is all about mystery, and nothing
is so mysterious as the minds of
the professionally offended.
One mystery is what kind of God they serve.
The Bible gives us rather conflicting impressions of God’s attitudes to this kind of thing, but none
of them fit very well with the God of Carb.
. . . . . . . . .
If God has little need of protection from hurt feelings or dented pride, there remains the mystery of whose pride campaigners are defending, and the obvious answer would seem to be their own.
Blasphemy dents their sense of honor, by insulting their religion, and what Christians call serving God could often be called self-serving.”
