A lot of people were offended with the photo above. On a Facebook posting of the photo, a lot of the commenters uttered disgust and even calling undesirable names on the woman.
“Bitch”. “Walang respeto”. “Di ni respeto si God”.
God does not take any offense at all. He did not feel disrespected. He is the author of grace. God is love. Jesus even forgave those who hurt him during his ordeal on a Friday.
The believers may be offended, but not God.
The woman can even sue the photographer for posting a photo of her without permission, especially if her face was visible.
The woman can even sue those who called her names on Facebook for defamation or slander.
Would I do the same as what the woman did on the cross? Maybe.
But I may not do it, out of respect for other people’s belief. Not because I would disrespect God.
