Philip Pullman: nobody has the right not to be offended
Philip Pullman responds to a Christian's criticism of the title of his book. Where the hell does it come from, this idea that they have a right not to be offended?
I'm offended by their pitiful pious pleas for me to believe as they believe. I'm offended by their hypocrisy, their gullibility, and their deceitfulness. What I'm not is offended by is their right to speak even as I retch at their self-righteous drivel.
Well said Mr. Pullman, well said!
