Well, that harmony ended quickly.


And you have no problem doing the same thing to folks on "the left" ...



Get that tree out of your own eye before you go after my splinter, Doc.

EDIT: Please demonstrate anywhere, anytime in which I have stated anything similar to "everyone on the right is racist."

If you can't, you might consider apologizing.

Gasp! OH! I see what caused this crapstorm!!!
It was the subtitle of the article.

Okay - so, I've removed that part.

Go back and look at the OP now, if you don't mind. www.abovetopsecret.com...
Hell, I doubt half of you even read PAST the subtitle!

Does it still call me a racist for not believing the same as you?

(oh please say yes, oh please say yes!)

Nope. I know you're not a racist. For heaven's sake!!!
I'm so damn sorry the publisher decided to make that subtitle. What I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT was the Friday doings, and Ted's sentiments.

Okay?

We cool?

Beezzer:

Do you believe that all members of a certain race have recognizable characteristics (beyond the obvious skin tones, eye structures, hair types, etc) ... for example, are all Lapplanders lazy and fishy-smelling? Do all Botswanians like soup?

If not, then you're not a racist ...

Yes, but only Conservative's nuts to make you happy.

Might I recommend a different title and forum? You may get a better response from conservatives and others.

But high-lighting an article that refers to anyone who may think differently as racist might bring about an expected response.

No.

And all Asians are great drivers.

You also wanted to discuss the article or Cruz's comments.

Most of the discussion has been about the article labeling conservatives as racist.

Beez isn't racist. Neither is my pops.

Guess they're closet libs?

God help us when they find out they're actually liberals....

How do you prove another person's personal opinion wrong?

By the pen. Mightier than the sword.

If one has a good case to help persuade the listener/reader (and I'm listening/reading) that the 'image' they have in mind is incorrect and inaccurate --- an explanation that negates the premise, then, you know - say so!

LOL ... pointing out that if a comment is racial and positive, we don't react as badly?

Apt!

I have asked the mods to consider changing the title of the OP to focusing on Cruz's comments about Friday's decisions.

I was under the impression we are to use the actual title of whatever article we are sourcing as the title of the thread.
I guess not so much in this particular forum.

Well. I named one conservative who isn't racist. You named another. Then I named both of them at once.

So like...do you want a list of conservatives who aren't racist gay-bashers or something?

Problems in America

Prostitution - 90% say they don't want to do it, and I imagine the other 10% were scared to tell the truth. Prostitution equals Rape. But if we film it, it is legal. Women don't want to be prostitutes.

Adultery - over 50% of marriages end in divorce, one of the leading causes is adultery.

Homeless - The disabled and dispared live homeless. I see the homeless sleeping on the doorsteps of the closed church buildings downtown.

Racism - because it's in the title of the article. I am sure God is not ok with Racism but I am not sure what it has to do with marriage equality.

Sarcasm... Apparently God is ok with the above, and everything else we do to oppress one another. But gay marriage is why we will be punished? End Sarcasm...

How about we feed the homeless, honor the marriage bed, and protect our women from prostitution. All of these seem more worthy of God's attention than two people consenting to a same sex marriage.

I think you missed my point.

If a Seattle Seahawk fan says, 'The day we lost the Superbowl to the Patriots was the darkest day in team history', who am I to tell them it was worse when they lost to the Steelers?

That is their perception.

I think that's only in the news forums.

To be fair, back on page 3 at the very top, you said you wanted to discuss the article and/or Cruz's comments. The article is being well and truly discussed.

Seems pretty clear to me that nobody here is interested in defending Cruz's opinion for him. From my perspective, it's his opinion. His job to defend it, which he will have the opportunity to do during debates. But it's not my job to make or break his opinion for him.

You don't want to think that all conservatives are like Cruz? I suggest you scroll back a few pages. Sure doesn't seem like they are to me.

Should someone (i.e. Ted Cruz) who wants to be the leader of the free world be a bit more ... circumspect in his public remarks though?

Although, the author did try to make it better by claiming that we're just deluded and that our racism is simply buried so deep we're not aware that it's racist.

*slaps forehead*

Okay, NOW you are being deliberately obtuse. I'm not buying it.

I have already said I want to talk about TED CRUZ and what he said.

OKAY? Got it???
