Disclaimer: I consider myself an agnostic and probably not what would be defined obviously as a "Christian". I read, what seems alot of the net and hear in real life, phrases such as "Christians shouldn't say that" or "Christians shouldn't be doing that". Sometimes its used very reasonably, such as saying "Christians shouldn't be racist" and the like. But in the vast majority of cases, it offends me quite a bit. For instance: in my local paper, there was a person responding to a very racist and bigoted poster on our local newspaper's website. I read the whole post thinking to myself how reasonable this person was. But at the end they inserted "Christians should not say those words". This is what got to me. I know this may not always be the intention, but it often is. By saying what she said, I think interpreted it as meaning "Christians are better people than non-Christians and therefore are held to different standards". With different standards comes different rights and laws that treat those people differently, at least that's what used to happen before Democracy and all that. Am I alone in this? Do you guys think it would have been better or less offensive is this person had said "People should not say those words". I feel like other religions and non religious people are thought of by some Christians as having a different set of morals or something. My friend, who is very much against gay marriage, says "Christians shouldn't support something so evil". So it's ok for Muslims/atheists/Jewish people to support them? Sorry for the long post but it's something that' been bothering me for a long time. Do you guys feel bothered by the air of superiority that comes sometimes with a person calling themself a Christian?
