Religious privilege, the favoring of religion, religious beliefs, and religious figures, has been much more difficult to kill.

I did a c&p of the christian privileges statements onto my local forum, and not one of the Christians would acknowledge that any of them where correct. Which leads me to think that they acknowledged them silently.
