While I don’t think we should deliberately try to offend people of different religions, if they find the very fact that you are a member of another faith to be offensive, then that seems like it should be their problem, not yours.
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of AMC’s mega-hit show “Duck Dynasty”, said recently the family was told to quit praying to Jesus because it might offend Muslims.
Robertson told Sports Spectrum:
So when we pray we say “In Jesus name, Amen.” …It’s a very good idea, I think. So, they would have me say, “Thank you Lord for the food. Thank you for the blessings. Amen.” So, I said, “Why would you cut out ‘in Jesus name?’” And they said, “Well, these editors they think they don’t want to offend some Muslims or something.”
The guys at Duck Dynasty have done more for Christianity by being willing to speak up for their faith a few times than most pastors do in decades of preaching to their flocks. Thank God we still have Christians who are willing to speak out for Christianity and Jesus whether liberals, Muslims, Hollywood or anyone else likes it.
