Q:Does anyone know if there is any oppressed people groups today in the world?

I need to do a report about a group of people that are being mistreated today in the world. Who are the people being oppressed? What is happening? Who is mistreating them? Why is this happening? Whats being done to help this problem?

A: Christians are by the rest of the world. Imagine if you will a young Caucasian boy kneeling in front of your high school in prayer with his hands clasped in front of him. He wouldn't last 5 min in most states before a teacher asked him to stop.
Now take an Asian kid sitting Indian style with his hands on his knees doing that OK symbol and he could stay there all day long praying to Buddha and no one would care.

It has become popular to hate Christians... why do you think that is?

Fail. That scenario is complete bullshit and everyone with more than 6 brain cells knows it. Christian kids pray all the time and even have school-approved Christian prayer groups.

"Now take an Asian kid sitting Indian style with his hands on his knees doing that OK symbol and he could stay there all day long praying to Buddha and no one would care."

Probably because nobody "prays to Buddha," since he's NOT A FUCKING GOD.

Moron.

Riddle me this, oh fundie fucktard:

What is it that not only acknowledges, but guarantees a student's right to pray peacefully and non-disruptively on school grounds...yet prohibits any teachers or other school personnel from leading students in prayer of any kind?

*BZZZT!* Time's up!

The answer is...the First Amendment of the United States Constitution!

Bottom line is: if you want to lead your Christian offspring in prayer, do it at home, or at your usual church, and leave the schools to those of us who give a damn about rational thought.

Why not kneel on a table in a restaurant where other people that you don't know are eating?

Man, are Christians oppressed.

The Asian kid, in your example, would be doing a form of meditation, not praying, you halfwit.

Actually, you are incorrect. Buddhists can pray without the "Buddha posture". Unlike Islam, where they have specific times that the very devout HAVE to pray, and are typically given a private area, thereby not disrupting anyone.

OH GOD, WHY WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE POOR WHITE CHRISTIAN CHILDREN?!


This guy's spiritual ancestors were fed to lions and tigers, dispatched by warriors in front of crowds of thousands, dipped in tar and set alight, crucified, tortured, you name it -- and yet the thought of some kid being told to get up and get his ass into class before the last bell or he's getting detention is exactly equal to all those horrors in this moron's spoiled rotten, first-world eyes.

And for the record, while I have never seen anyone in public school told to stop praying (and I grew up in an exceptionally religious state, according to the census) -- despite seeing many kids praying during my time there -- I am fairly certain that if some guy parked himself in front of the school in such a way that security decided he was disruptive, it wouldn't matter what his religion or race was, he'd be sent on his way.

THERE. I don't know how I managed to flip that around.

Only Caucasians can be Christians? This has the stench of Poe on it...

Edit-My bad, I kinda misread it. Still sounds like a Poe though.

Not Christians per se, fundie Christians actually. Also I note the posters assumption that the Christian boy would necessarily be Caucasian, because none of them brown people are real Christians huh?

Because you're the majority, and your persecution complex requires that you think you're hated.

You know, my school has a Christian center. Doesn't sound all that oppressed to me.

"It has become popular to hate Christians... why do you think that is?"

Because you're obnoxious twats who can't pray without a crowd watching you?

Because despite the fact that you've been told the opposite a trillion times you continue to insist that Buddha is a god?

Because you're just fucking stupid and it's fun to hate you?

None of that is true.

Where do those "persecuted Christians" get that ridiculous crap about teachers stopping them from praying in school? Just doesn't happen.

1. Wherever there are fundies there are people being opressed.

2. Wherever there are fundies there are delusions of oppression.

When I was in high school, the Babtists and Panty-costals used to go 'round thumping on Muslim, Wiccan, and Atheist studednts with the tacit approval of the faculty. Maybe that's why it's become "popular to hate Christians".
