We’ve talked a little bit about Christian Privilege here on FLP. I myself am still working at understanding my Christian Privilege in the U.S.. The truth is – I don’t always feel privileged. This is nothing new. Part of the difficulty of talking about “privilege” of any kind is that the privileged don’t understand themselves to be privileged and therefore have a hard time participating in conversation about said privilege.
This piece by Joanna Hoyt at Sojourners discusses Christian persecution and privilege in a way that I could really relate to.
I fear that arguments over religious privilege and persecution may blind us to the real challenge our culture poses to our attempts to live in faithful community.
