Oh yes, we get offended

In its latest issue, secularist magazine The New Humanist searches for the world's best religion in a game of "God Trumps". Judaism gets eight out of 10 for follower dedication - "no bacon sandwiches ever," the magazine observes, "that's dedication" - but also eight out of 10 for its "daffiest doctrine", niddah. The magazine reckons that Jews are "not really" given to having broigeses, getting just five out of 10 in the "easily offended" category. They don't know us very well, do they?
