Have you heard that Madalyn Murray O’Hair has petitioned the FCC to remove all Christian broadcasting from the airwaves? That rumor has been going around for over twenty years. It still comes around from time to time – even though she died several years ago.
Well, maybe it’s not her – but we all know that others are out to get us Christians. They want to ban Christmas or at least “Christmas” (the word) from our winter celebrations.
Other folks think Christians are abysmally ignorant, easily led or manipulated, adherents of a worn out, dilapidated faith.
We respond to our enemies with law suits and attempts to get people fired.
Have you noticed we’re not the only ones who think that way? Check out this story from Sudan. I confess that I have the same thought some of the Sudanese officials had. How silly!
Being easily insulted is not a sign of strength. It’s a sign of fear and weakness, a sign of a lack of confidence. We sometimes mock the Muslims who get upset over cartoons or teddy bears. I think we need to consider our own propensity to handle insult poorly before we spend too much effort mocking others.
