Where did this peculiar sense of victimization that's spreading among some Christians these days come from? I'm white too. We're not special, nor do you have to be a bigot if you don't want to be. I don't know enough about you to say that you are, but the fact that you're a white Christian doesn't make you an instabigot. Has nobody explained this to you yet? You have the right-wing media constantly driving into your head how much of a victim you are, as a (lol) 'marginalized' white Christian man and you start to believe. It's a false narrative.

If you're an American Christian who is truly oppressed, start a GoFundMe and the idiots will be lining up to give you their money.


what idiots? white christians?
do tell.

What you said right there is ignorant on all levels, from 1 to 5. Whatever you do, for the love of god, don't look at China when you toss in Asia! Not to mention, there are quite a few Middle Eastern and African countries that would give you a verbal thrashing. Your prejudices against the rest of the world shows why America isn't as highly regarded as it once was.


The middle east has been at war with itself for hundreds of years and there aren't many African nations that do much more than enslave each other and move drugs. That's simply the reality of the world. And yes, without European influence, specifically the Roman Empire, I doubt much would have been accomplished. But that's my opinion based on the fact that these nation continue to either wage war with themselves or enslave each other to this day.

And America isn't as highly regarded as it once was because we have corrupt scum in positions of power that seek to profit through destroying the rest of the world. People tend to hate those that would use drones to kill innocent people while our population walks around like slobbering zombies on their smart phones.

Probably from Liberals calling white people racist and the Liberal media demanding that we show tolerance by not saying Merry Christmas to each other because it's offensive! You know, because Jesus might be offensive to atheists that are free to spew their nonsense wherever they wish. If it's not a nativity being taken down it's a cross being removed from a fallen soldier's grave.

But if that's not enough there's the whole beheadings happening in the middle east. But again, since it's happening to Christians, it's not a big deal.

I'd also like to state that while I don't consider myself racist and I don't agree with anyone who chooses to discriminate based on color, gender or preference, people have the right to feel however they want about other people. It's called freedom of speech. And just because you don't agree with something, doesn't mean you can silence them. Billy Bob has every right in the world to hate black people as long as he isn't doing them harm. Don't like it? Tough cookies.

Getting closer to the truth all the time, aren't you. Bravo!

Now, did you want to debate on something, or were you just complaining for effect?

I don't think there's much left to say to each other. Plus, your debates usually end in calling me racist so what's the point?

Let's try this for giggles:

"What's wrong with Liberals?"

"What's wrong with Democrats?"

"What's wrong with Republicans?"

Answer? They answer to the same Masters without even knowing it.

Hope this helps.


JUDE!!




Exactly.

In my opinion, these types of threads should get the 404 and the authors need to be warned.

I thought we were here to deny ignorance, not wallow in it.

So, all morning when you kept posting over and over to stop ignoring you and have a fair debate on your "issues" ...

Nevermind. I'm good with silence between us.

We're on the wrong side of history? As in what? Not murdering billions of unborn children?


No, I actually believe the Liberal viewpoint on that is on the wrong side of history. Technology will eventually take care of the abortion issue...and then future generations will look back on abortion as an atrocity that was condoned by society.

However, you are on the wrong side of history when it comes to homosexuals being treated as equals to all other citizens, just like conservatives (note, conservatives...not republicans) were on the wrong side of slavery and women's equality. Conservatives are also on the wrong side of history when it comes to hating Muslims, worker's rights, universal healthcare, wanting to tax the poor more than the rich, wanting to do away with social programs that help the poor, legalization of certain drugs, and immigration.

The world is moving in one direction on all of the above issues...and conservatives are being stubborn and obtuse about them.

At some point you have to admit to yourself that your viewpoints are in the minority...and that society has evolved on these issues and you and other conservatives remain un-evolved on them.



You're essentially Communist.


Well...thanks for trying to define me...but I think I know what I am better than you.

I am all for a capitalist economy...although I disagree on completely free markets. Free markets encourage the worst in humanity...greed, cheating, lying. That is why I am all for a regulated capitalist market. Please note...this is not Communism...you should educate yourself on what Communism is, because you keep saying it but I don't think you know what you are talking about.

I also believe that socialist programs are absolutely beneficial to our society. I don't advocate pure Socialism...but socialist programs have their place. The military is a socialist program...so are the fire departments, police departments, public works...all evil socialist programs. The Interstate highway system is a huge socialist program. Amtrak...can't get more socialist than that. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid...all socialists.

Now, if you don't like any of those...please enlighten us on what your solution is to get rid of them as socialist programs and replace them with something else.


Your mind is warped, literally brainwashed. Do you not understand this? That you honestly believe that you're writing history by being against your own country and her laws. I honestly have no other words. The narcissism level has hit 9000 in this thread. You're preaching social engineering at the end of a knife and you honestly believe you're in the right. You're incapable of seeing your own hypocrisy. History isn't going to prove anything but the fact that tyrants like Hitler is the only thing that comes of your twisted ideology. It's more like a cult that I thought


LOL.

Paranoia...I guess it is true that Conservatives are more paranoid than others.

Please educate me on what I am brainwashed about. By the way...you did say you are religious...right? Ironic?

I hope you know how unoriginal your litany of 'complaints' are regarding the oppressed white male. They are part and parcel lies created and promulgated by FOX NEWS.

For the record, I think Grypon schooled you very well on liberal thought. But you appear to be too much of an ideologue for any of that to have mattered.

Oh, btw, I'm one of those immigrants you and your kind constantly gripe about. I came to this country in my teens, finished high school, graduated from college, finished grad school, and started a business which now employs 14 Americans. Immigrants contribute disproportionately to the American economy, and that too is a fact you won't hear on FOX NEWS.



I'm a second generation American, I love hearing success stories like yours.

My father came here...and I'm sure much to the OPs disdain, he isn't even a citizen *gasp*. But he worked hard, gave me a good life, put me through college...and know I am a very successful business owner

I've told him before...doesn't matter how successful I become...I can't match what he did. He made my success easy for me...he was the one that had the hard time and had to work his butt off to get our family where we are at.

But again, I'm the bad guy here because I don't subscribe to "social evolution".


You are the "bad guy" because of your outdated and extremist views. People are calling you racist...because a lot of what you have been writing when talking about other races besides Caucasian is vile and filled with hate.

I think people are seeing you as the "bad guy" because you are mostly ranting and raving like a lunatic instead of trying to have a rational discussion.

I'm not sure you understand my stance on many issues... I'm not a Conservative. I don't consider myself Conservative. There are MANY issues that I have with Conservatives. But just going by what you listed...

I couldn't care less what homosexuals do. Get married, do whatever you want. It's not my place or job to worry about what people do in their own bedrooms. The issue comes when it's shoved down our throats on a daily basis.

There is no slavery in the United States. The only slavery taking place is our corporations shipping our jobs to China to pay them $1 a day. And women's rights? How about we look are real women's issues, like domestic violence and women being stoned to death in the middle east? Let's empower women and give girls strong role models, not Sandra Fluke demanding she be given condoms. I also don't hate Muslims, I actually defend Islam. Shocker, right? I view Muslims as Muhammad told Muslims to view Christians. As brothers. And I support ALL drugs being legal.

Now the problems start when we talk about the socialist programs. Universal Healthcare sounds great! Social programs sound great! Free college education sounds amazing! But we're 17 trillion dollars in debt. Who's going to pay for it? Immigration isn't an issue, as long as it's done legally. We need the brightest, the best the world has to offer. I welcome immigration, just not people arriving here illegally with God knows what diseases. You want to come to America? Do it the way it's always been done.

But see nobody wants to know where I stand on these issues. Apparently I'm just an evil white Republican and I must be racist..

I've tried to have a rational discussion, I'm attacked when I do. I've responded to issues based on how I personally feel about them, and I stand behind everything I've said in this thread. But if I hated other races so much, why have I quoted the like as Dr. King? Even comparing the man to our founders? People view the world in black in white when many times opinions and issues are rarely so cut and dry.

My grandparents came here off the boat and built a life for themselves and their family. The difference is they did it legally. They respected our nation's laws. So don't tell me it's not possible. Maybe if you bothered to ask you'd hear another great success story instead of writing me off as a white racist?

1. the idea that the capitalist system of the 20s "worked" better than the Soviet command economy (which I assume is what you are referring to when you say communism)

2. the idea that fidelity to a 200 year old revolution is a necessary component of American-ness or even a desirable component.

3. nationalism from someone who isn't occupied by a foreign army
