Racism is endemic in our culture.
This is virtue signalling ....the left wing tactic of making whites look bad and making themselves look virtuous....stating racism is endemic is actually perpetuating a victim mentality. I believe that all people now have the same rights under the law,

I know most people won't admit it to others but many Christians are very racist. They fail to recognize Gods statutes of adoption and kindness to foreigners' and feel that salvation is mostly for the Caucasian branch of Noah's family tree so my endeavor was to point out what nonsense this very human trait is. People also thought Moses was Egyptian because his hair was nappy and his skin was dark. I don't often let people get my Goat. I don't let 'em know where it is but I'll make a lot of noise when they get close to it.
"Many Christians are very racist."

Well, I've generally had the opposite experience.

Also, we might do well to define the word "many" in your statement, so we know what you're actually talking about.
Is "many" some kind of percentage, or is it just a flat rate... like 5, or 11, or 32?
(But I honestly think 32 is a bit high.)


Conclusion:
1. Until we know exactly what you mean by "many", we can't even argue with you, because we don't really know what you're saying. How many is many?
2. Then, until we determine HOW you arrived at your number (did you read it in a book, or did it come to you in a dream etc) then we have no way to know if you've had some brilliant epiphany, or if you're just complaining about life at the end of a bad hair day.
3. The statement "many christians are racist" may APPEAR very confrontational, but it's honeslty so vague it doesn't really mean anything at all.

People claiming to be Christians have differing views. The question was rhetorical and definitely anti-racist.
I believe you harbor some "loathing" of others based on a false presumption that a large amount of Christians are racist. You came out swinging and continued swinging by making broad brush statements. The flow and context of your posts and OP lean that way, and honestly you're being disingenuous about all of it.

The point is it is pervasive and has existed longer than Jews. What I wrote I didn't hear on MSNBC and it's not about politics. It's about the willful, sinful nature of racism and some groups willingness to try and hang a scriptural context on it to disguise the true nature of it. Among all societies that I've come across in 64 years.

if 1% of a million Christians are racists that's 10,000 to me that's a lot. And I will always speak against them!

First ...there is no such thing as race, that is just a made up construct.

You hang around with a bunch of people over 60 and think that is the norm ....go to a college campus and you will fit right in......and it is all about politics for sure.

How many versions of Christian doctrines did you investigate before deciding which one to follow?

And that figure of "1%" is a number you pulled from which learned source?

No source?

You mean you just made it up?

Like just now?

Bob, we enjoy your company just fine.
And if you want to chat about issues, and problems, and things that bug you... that's also fine.
But if you want to make up numbers out of thin air... well... that's a bit less fine.

I was a psychology major under Cal State University Long Beach Guide lines. 9 years ago and I fit right in.

And... if your whole sentence started with "if"... then... you really have nothing to say about this entire issue because you have absolutely no facts of any kind??

You're just complaining about a bunch of nothing?

Exactly what I said, maybe there is where you adopted this leftist world view of identity politics, along with cultural marxism and the belief that all whites are racists :unsure:

It's really quite simple. How much do you know about the doctrines and teachings of denominations that call themselves Christian do you know about? Do you question authority and compare them with the word of God?

Well this is the huge problem right here......lots of assumptions.

Why would you speak against them....if a Christian was indeed a racist then you should teach them otherwise.

calibob I am quite shocked at what you are advocating....do you support antifa too?

You know we tend to project onto others what we ourselves are guilty, I have done that many times ...so just be aware of that.

Bob, YOU may be ok with slandering billions of people throughout Christendom, soley because YOU had a bad experience with someone...

but the rest of us are a bit more objective.
