How many times have you seen or heard Christians being ridiculed or lied about or something like that and then seen or heard Christians say something along the lines of "if they said the same things about _____________________ (Muslims, women, etc.) there would be outrage." In other words, we ask why it is that people can get away with defaming Christians, but not others.
Aaron Earls at WorldMagBlog has about the best response for that I have ever read. In reply to the now (in)famous acceptance speech of Kathy Griffin where she chose not only to not thank Jesus, but to mock him, Aaron says this:
That's it - he expresses what I have intuitively known for years but have not been able to articulate. We say that Christians are different, and we are, and one of the main ways we are different from the world is that we don't take offense at offensive behavior or treatment. We are the people who love our enemies, who bless when cursed, who pray for our persecutors. We follow the one who only wanted forgiveness to be shown to those who crucified Him.
