There was a thread a while ago somewhere – possibly in the Pit, possibly elsewhere – that expressed ire at seeing a car with a bumper sticker that said “Christians Aren’t Perfect - Just Forgiven.” The OP thought it was arrogant; other posters defended or agreed with that view. It was an interesting look at how the words were viewed by different readers.
Yesterday I saw a car that had several bumper stickers: “Democracy, Not Theocracy,” “Re-Defeat Bush,” “If You Promise Not To Pray In My School, I Promise Not to Think In Your Church,” and a very clever “Jesus”-style fish ornament that had “n’Chips” inside instead of Jesus.
Taken together, I believe that one can safely infer a few things about the car owner’s attitude towards religion.
The one bumber stciker that stood out, though, in the midst of the others I mention was: “So Many Christians, So Few Lions.”
I was not remotely offended. I thought it was consistent with the antipathy showed by the other stickers, and I didn’t take it as a literal desire to see Christians torn to shreds by lions.
But I thought I’d ask, since “Christians Aren’t Perfect, Just Forgiven” apparently offended at least some readers.
Is a bumper sticker with “So Many Christians, So Few Lions” offensive?
