I really want to know whether this is offensive or i am being too sensitive but i don’t know what to do because i feel very uncomfortable in my religion and ethics class. My teacher (i’ll keep anonymous) is like the class clown and makes funny jokes here and there that everyone laughs about. I seem to be the only catholic in the class and not all the time but the jokes made make me very uncomfortable and i am quite shy so i don’t know if i should say anything. It’s a bit hypocritical because the teacher says to remain respectful because some students were disrespecting the onenote when the teacher asked to put in a favourite prophet and everyone put each other and posting inappropriate photos of phrophets wearing sunglasses. Other jokes are like along the lines of ’ i wonder what Jesus did during his teenage years because we don’t know what happened…probably annoying his parents and sinning’ or look at papa Francisco (Pope Francis) etc. Should i say anything ?? I feel bad though because he praises me and says i have been working hard and he is impressed with my maturity when talking about religion. I know i shouldn’t try to want to be offended but i don’t know i feel uncomfortable all the time.
Please let me know what you think
