Kate (a guest user) asked this question:

Language pair:

French > English

Subject:

General

Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

porteurs de pêchés

Context:

les gens marginalisés sont considérés comme porteurs de pêchés

literally, this means something like "bearers of sin" or "sinners", though that doesn't quite fit here, this is more idiomatic

Keywords:

thx

 

 

thought of as having to bear the brunt of their sins

My comment:

Interesting question. But marginalized people are often that way due to no fault of their own.
