    Offended is not an answer, except that it almost always is

    Offended is not an answer, except that it almost always is

    Ann Coulter makes that point about DiFi’s response to Ted Cruz, which we featured yesterday.

    I agree in theory, because Offended should not be an acceptable answer.

    But, Offended is accepted as an answer virtually everywhere, particularly on campuses, unless the person offended is a religious Christian, in which case Offended is both the goal of the question and one of the few instances in which Offended is not an acceptable answer.

    RE: “…. unless the person offended is a religious Christian, in which case Offended is both the goal of the question and one of the few instances in which Offended is not an acceptable answer.”

    Such insight! Well stated Professor, succinct and accurate.

    It’s really good for Christians to be opposed like this, as per Romans 8:29. Christ did ALL things well, and all he got was a cross! Certainly not the reward we as men expect for doing ‘good’ works, eh? Perhaps opposition is one of the greatest factors that has caused the Church to grow – just look at China after Mao’s Cultural Revolution, or Ethiopia after Mussolini’s attacks in the late 1930s; immense vitality and growth.
