In the last 200 years, racial discrimination by Christians has largely stemmed from an acceptance of evolution in the Church which has also been used by Hitler, Stalin and others to justify the superiority of certain 'races' of people (ie. some are more evolved than others) over others. Of course, bearing the brunt of this satanic tirade has been the Jews and dark-skinned peoples such as Afro-Americans and Australian Aborigines (the original European settlers of Australia believed the Aborigines were one of the 'missing links' in the human evolutionary chain).
Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" is subtitled "By means of natural selection or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life". The mapping of the human genome has shown (at least on the biological level) that there is no difference between the so called 'races', and so once more we see the reliability of the Biblical account verified and the folly of evolutionary thinking exposed.

Trouble understanding the title of a book doesn't exactly fill me with hope that you will understand the content of the book.

b/c Christians have never used the bible to justify racism amirite?

Aren't you guys the ones who justified slavery and a ban on interracial marriage because black people bore the Curse of Ham/the Mark of Cain/some such a thing?

People who are racist:
Of those, how many believe in evolution?
A few Nazis.
That's about it.
I rest my case.

Hitler was a creationist, and Stalin wasn't exactly fond of Darwinian evolution either (if I'm not mistaken, he preferred Lamarckian evolution).

The church accepted evolution 50 years before Darwin put his Theory out?
It's real easy to find proof of Racism in all Christian sects. Just google "racism in Christianity" and you'll see the proof of that goes back way before 200 years ago. Fucking Hypocrites.

You get 1 point for knowing the title of the book.
You lose 1000 points for not understanding it.
