I take offense to it for three reasons:
1. It implies that I deign the same irrational superstitious belief.
2. The audacity of it being so freely used reminds one of how it has been allowed to become a meme of the Christian White Privilege that so permeates our culture.
3. The passivity of those that recognize such, but somehow feel it is not worthy of a stance for their convictions.
