While perusing a message board today, I came across a post in which someone expressed their happiness at not being Catholic. This was posted at a Catholic message board in response to a post in which someone was asking for support over a difficult situation. When the offensive nature of this gleeful post was pointed out, the original poster played the "feelings" card. You know: "I was only expressing my feeeeelings".
Everyone has a right to his or her own feelings on a subject. Feelings are something to be discussed after careful consideration for the hearers. Just because they are one's feelings, doesn't mean they, by definition, can not be found offensive to others if voiced aloud. This modern notion that everyone is entitled to be forced to listen to an offensive tirade under the guise of expressing "feelings" is misguided.
