English term or phrase: discriminatory
Christianity deserves to be damned because it denies arrogansem discriminatory feelings, etc. (Nietzsche).
Astrid Viken
Norwegian translation:skjelnende
Explanation:
The sentence is not quite clear; the words 'denies arrogansem' makes no sense. The word 'discriminatory' means skjelnende, but could be modified to mean critical, etc.

fordommer


Explanation:
Mener N. at kristendommen avviser følelser basert på fordommer, eller at den avviser følelser basert på (fine) distinksjoner generelt? Jeg vet ikke; den tyske originalteksten ville kanskje svare på det, evt. bedre kjennskap til N. enn jeg har.

Det engelske ordet "discriminatory" kan i hvert fall bety både "biased" og "capable of making fine distinctions"
