Quote# 73182

With the war against white Christianity by the secular left, we all know that openly offending Christians is not only accepted, but has almost become celebrated in this country.

At the same time we also know that had this offended a certain other religion with a tendency for aggression, then everything would be done to avoid any offence.

a) I'm not overly keen on black, yellow, or pink Christianity either

b) No, I'm quite happy to criticise Islamic ideas as well - this may lead to offense.

Be it Jewish, Christian or Islamic nuttery, I will gladly chime in and criticize. Don't like that? Then don't listen.

Yeah but you're not threatening to kill people over it which, frankly, makes you the better religion (though being the better religion is a lot like being the least rapey paedophile)

You've been fighting for centuries to see who has the better imaginary friend. You're BOTH fairytale worshipping retardeds.

I was unaware that Christianity was "white"? I thought it was invented in the middle east? The rest is nothing but shit talking, having nothing to do with reality
At the same time we also know that had this offended a certain other religion with a tendency for aggression, then everything would be done to avoid any offence.
Wow..feeling persecuted are we? Did you pay attention to the debate centered around the new Mosque going up near ground zero? Never heard a congregation of a Christian church have to promise over and over again that they will not be terrorists and other SPECIAL promise that they had to succumb too..read up on it..I bet you will have no problem with THEM being persecuted, as long as YOU are doing the persecuting.

Look, you may have a point that people are feeling increasingly comfortable criticising Christianity these days - but to claim that Islam somehow gets a free ride is delusory. Many Muslims find themselves viewed with suspicion and negativity simply by walking down the street in many western countries, which I imagine is probably a more unpleasant experience than having your religion mocked.

But even so, Islam is criticised and mocked regularly. Even if it is not with the regularity that Christianity is made fun of, it is evident that the criticisms that ARE made of Islam are causing more upset and anger from Muslims than criticism of Christianity is causing in Christians. So it would seem, at least...

Can someone with a degree in psychology please help me to understand why there seems to be a part of the human psyche that makes one salivate over the idea that they are persecuted? Some Christians seem to get an almost erotic pleasure out of declaring how oppressed they are... in the face of all evidence to the contrary.

White Christianity? A religion reputedly started by a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew is white? How exactly?

Edit: Islam, Zoroastrian, Christian, Voudun or Judaism. Imaginary skydaddies are imaginary skydaddies and delusions are delusions.

Im not a psyche, but I bet if you looked up "battered wife syndrome" it would lead you in the right direction. I think they get their love of persecution from dogmas that claim if they are being persecuted that they are being persecuted for two reasons:

-They are being persecuted FOR Christ.

-Being persecuted is "proof" that their beliefs are the correct ones, because if their beliefs were not correct, then they would not be "persecuted".

All religions have problems, with plenty of things to mock. Christianity is just a larger target, unfortunately for you.

White Christianity? Are we in the right forum here?

But since it is here, where did Jesus or Paul ever even hint that Christianity was for whites? I'm not even sure if Jesus or Paul can be described as Caucasian, as if it mattered!

@ Scooby

Personally i worry about the candy-striped ones! LOL in a sarcastic vein.

@ Rev Jeremiah

There was a time that Christians were falling over themselves to get thrown to the lion in the arena. The church back them had to take steps to discourage self-immolation. And the Romans got very uneasy about it too, considering it quite unhealthy. So the persecution mania is not something new to fundyism.

I probably qualify as "secular left".

I believe all 3 major Abrahamic religions are equally stupid.

And moreover I have never been anything but consistent on this point.

I don't have a problem with religion in general, or any particular religion. I have a problem with idiocy (particularly when it effects others, including myself), bigotry, and evangelism.

Um, Christianity has nothing to do with race (and Jesus would of been middle eastern looking fyi). Also those who see the faults in one religon, usually see the faults in most or all religion.

There is no war against white christianity.


Finaly Someone who admits judaism's aggressive and violent nature.
I find that most jews take the religious command to kill everyone of non-biblical race... with a huge grain of salt. But the almost obsessive fear of criticising jews, is a sad thing.

So yes, Lets treat judaism just like any other religion. Condemn its absurditys and exesses. Demand its reformation. And hold it's members individualy accountable for the acts they individualy commit in the name of their religion.

I notice you avoid naming this 'certain other religion'. What's the matter? Scared?

So, Martin Luther King, black as a blackberry, was not Christian in any way or shape. Neither is Jessie Jackson, for that matter.

I love how Christians play the persecution card when they often talk about how evil other religions are and how stupid atheists are.

Bullshit. There's a difference between a light-hearted joke at someone's expense, and going out of one's way to offend. Most people are ok with the former and condemn the latter.

@Xotan: I'm rather offended by the polka-dotted Christians, myself. And don't even get me started on the plaid-skinned ones! ;P

Christiannism is not persecuted. It is still the oppressor.

Islam and christiannism are the same when the topic is about crime and atrocities.

Wait, is he saying that christians should be more aggressive so people won't make fun of Jesus?

My problem is not with christianity, it is with religious faith. Period. You all suck.
