The privileged theist. [View all]

Last edited Wed Apr 17, 2013, 09:07 AM - Edit history (1)

This seems a much better word than 'patronizing', 'conceited', 'arrogant', or 'condescending'.

It better conveys the combined sense of entitlement and persecution complex that the believer relies on to label others and maintain firm control of the terms of debate. 'Patronizing' is more old school ignorant. 'Privileged' is more modern and self-centered.

Discuss.
