Quote# 8228

In my experience black Christians tend to lean more towards the conservative side when it comes to theology and religious belief. To their credit they tend to have stronger faith than white people and black churches usually hold strongly to things such as the inerrancy of the Bible. I would guess they are more likely to reject 'modern' teaching such as theistic evolution. Perhaps partly because they might feel that evolution has been used to oppress them and to racially abuse them.

So your quasi-vague-yet-sweeping generalizations are to cover up your inherent racism?

Reminds me of a comment my freind's mother made, when I told her abiogenesis and evolution were viable explanations for man's existence. \"Evolution is a lie by the white man to continue repressing black people\". I was stunned, to say the least. I did point out the same could be said for christianity.

Evolution got Jimmy the Greek in trouble ...

At the basis of every good lie there is a grain of truth, and this one is no exception. It was believed for a long time, and it still is, in some places (see \"Christian Forums,\" :D) that black people -were- the missing link between apes and humans.

It's complete bullshit, of course, but that didn't (and still doesn't) stop some people from believing it.

How the heck could Evolution be used to oppose them?
Also- weren't CHRISTIANS the one who kept blacks as slaves? And wasn't it the Christians who oppressed the African natives until they were forced to take on christianity? And what's the point of faith if it's forced on you?

The Last Conformist

Leaving the last sentence aside, isn't he right that \"black\" churches tend to be quite conservative?

Last statistics and M. Luther King don´t cofirm your alternative bizarro universe.

What the fuck? Are you guys fucking blind? You guys have never heard of Social Darwinism or Eugenics? True, they were horrible distortions, but yes. Evolution was used as justification for rascism.

Mostly wrong, but not racist.
