Leaving aside the original writer’s laughable contention that Christian kids are just too centered on Jesus Christ to kill themselves (as if God is some kind of suicide prevention hotline), why on earth would you puff out your chest and be all, “We get bullied, too!” Does it look like fun to you? Do you want in on being one of the most hated demographics in the land? Want to hear your “lifestyle” denounced from the pulpit? Want to be fired from your job, evicted from your home, kicked out of the military, beaten up and maybe murdered just for walking around as yourself? Are you saying wow, get me some of that?
I get that these people are just pissed they can’t persecute others without at least one or two people calling them dicks. I get that they want recognition for suffering because they think that’s the only way to earn any attention in the world. I get that they can’t stand not being the center of the universe.
I get all that, but I take this stuff on its face because that’s how it becomes ridiculous: You’re demanding entry to the Suffering Olympics when you should be on your knees thanking your Godyou don’t have to play. These people, who hit the genetic jackpot, would rather concentrate on how miserable they still are than use their privilege and power to make sure no one else is miserable either. It makes no sense to me.
