Quote# 64335

[after calling atheists 'racist':]

Racism is also applied to religion, and if you make anti-Christian remarks, anti-Muslim remarks, etc, you are being racist.

err

I don't think that's how racism works.

If you get to define "religion" as "race",
I get to define "civil rights" as "Cindy Crawford must have sex with me."

Now, I demand my civil rights!

RACE DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!

No.

No. You are discriminating according to belief, not race. There is a difference.

Laura hasn't the vaguest idea of what she's talking about. This doubtless applies to any subject she brings up.

No.

Christianity, Islam, etc, ARE NOT RACES, ARE NOT GENETIC, AND ARE,IN FACT, A CHOICE.

Well, race is a tricky thing to pin down anyway, but race is not something you have a choice in. Religion, on the other hand. . .

Racist derivates from RACE. And critisising a religion is not connected with people. Ergo, it´s not racist.

The word "racism" doesn't mean what you think it means.

More evidence of the "Fundy Word Re-Definition Project"?

Anti-Christian remarks are not necessarily discriminatory. For instance, I might make anti-creationism remarks but that doesn't mean I'm discriminating against fundamental cultists, just that I'm defending the truth. Religious adherents could be of many different races within any one cult, so how would anti-religious remarks, in that case, be racist? Although, I do know that any word can mean whatever a fundamental cultist wants it to mean, specially on Y! answers and other retard sites.

I'd tell you to look up the word, but I'm pretty sure you don't have a dictionary.

Papabear

Please define "race." Yeah, you can't, can you?

Ya know, saying that anti-Christian/anti-Muslim remarks are racist is racist in and of itself because it assumes that only individuals of a certain ethnicity follow these beliefs.

Maybe not, but does Cindy Crawford PLAY that way?

It's not racist if it's true.

And this isn't racist period.

"Racism is also applied to religion,"

Seems the people at both Webster and Oxford are unaware of this change...

Wrong. Racism means to discriminate on grounds of race, i.e. ethnic origin. That's kind of implied by the term. One's 'race' does not dictate one's beliefs.

Alright, fine, then homosexuality is a race and you're racist, too.

7/31/2009 11:39:03 PM

aaa

Racism does not work that way!

Defining a subset of a population as the other, and ascribing them various essential characteristics is pretty racist, yeah. Doubtful if this is what Laura means though.
