So, care to guess what’s been trending on Twitter this week? Among other inane hashtags, there were two that stood out. #ChristianPrivilege has become a thing for some reason. In a completely unrelated story, #LoveAMuslim is also trending this week.
Pretty interesting right? Well, you and I both know that the fact that both of these hashtags are trending at the same time couldn’t possibly be part of Twitter’s left-leaning agenda. We all know that the social media platform goes to great lengths to allow both conservative and leftist ideas to be expressed, don’t they? So, it must be entirely logical to assume that Twitter’s users somehow got it into their heads to love Muslims and call out Christian privilege all in the same week.
If you disagree, you’re an Islamophobe who needs to check your Christian privilege.
Indeed, if you happen to identify as a Christian — like 83% of the United States’ population, you must understand that you are in a much better position than the other 17% of Americans. And you should be ashamed of yourself.
What Is Christian Privilege?
Christian privilege is a newer term that was invented by the left to promote unity by convincing followers of Jesus Christ to hate themselves. It’s kind of like white privilege. The main idea is that Christians enjoy a higher quality of life than people who practice other religions because Christians are horrible, vicious, evil people who oppress everyone who doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ.
How do we know that Christians live better than everyone else? Well, let’s go to everyone’s favorite leftist blog “Everyday Feminism” for the answer.
In a 2016 post, the site stated that Christians are privileged because they get time off of work for major religious holidays, there are more Christian politicians than any other religion, and they can go through life without learning about other religions. Additionally, when Christians commit violent crimes, nobody argues that they represent the whole faith.
Many on the left also cite the fact that Muslims are the targets of hate crimes at higher rates than Christians. Of course, the fact that the rate of Jewish victims of hate crimes is double that of Muslims isn’t something the left likes to discuss. But it’s easy to see why. Everyone knows that Muslims are more important than Christians and Jews because of Islamophobia. Christians need to make sure that we aren’t using our privilege to gain an unfair advantage over the rest of the American populace.
Christians, Hang Your Heads in Shame
I know what you’re thinking. You might say “of course we get time off on Christian holidays – EVERYONE gets that time off we live in a Christian country.” You might even believe that the fact that the United States is a predominantly Christian nation explains the fact that most politicians profess to be followers of Jesus Christ. Heck, you may even think that people who lump in regular Muslims with those who belong to radical Islamic groups are ridiculous.
If you agree with any of the aforementioned statements, you need to check your Christian privilege.
Stop being such a bigot.
It doesn’t matter that Muslim nations don’t typically celebrate Jewish or Christian holidays. It doesn’t matter that Jews and Christians would be imprisoned or killed for speaking out against Muslim privilege in nations like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. It doesn’t even matter that Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic countries have societies that favor the predominant religions. What matters is that you’re a Christian in America, which means that you need to be shamed for your beliefs, you animals.
On another note, this whole thing got me thinking: “Well, I’m both black and a Christian. Does my victimhood status as a black man outweigh my Christian privilege?” Well, I’m not sure any leftist could give a reasonable answer to this question. After all, the laws of intersectionality dictate that its adherents don’t have to make any sense as long as they can call you silly names when you disagree.
So, I figured it out. More blacks are victims of hate crimes than any other race. Indeed, more blacks are victimized by hate crimes than Muslims. Therefore, even though I’m a Christian, my blackness outweighs my religious privilege. More importantly, I’m more useful to the left as a victim than as a privileged member of American society. Imagine what would happen if the left started telling blacks – who are predominantly Christians – that they are privileged? Perish the thought! They would instantly lose their decades-long hold on the black vote, and we can’t have that, can we?
Here’s the bottom line: if you’re a Christian, you’re a terrible person. While Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Atheists live in squalor and oppression, you are busy sipping fine wine in your palaces. Christians in America don’t have any of the same struggles as people of other religions. Like people with white privilege, Christians never struggle with such petty issues as financial troubles, tragedy, and hard times.
If you want to be a tolerant person, you must stop oppressing people of other religions. Love a Muslim, and reject your Christian privilege. Otherwise, people like Linda Sarsour and other rabid leftists will yell at you, call you a bigot, and ensure that President Trump gets a second term. What could be worse than that?
