I have English Language Facebook and My sister has both Facebook and Twitter in english versions, and I never encountered (& my sister never mentioned) a single racist or apathetic or passive racist person would describe every person I have come into contact with on this site!

that could be because of the language barrier, or the fact we do not talk to people, we talk at people. you know "they say" communication is the number one cause of divorce, not money.

There are many things wrong with the people on this site.  I've never noticed racism being one of them.

I've never noticed any racism on here but for sure I've seen a lot of Christian bashing.

Other than the whole Jesus Christ is Julius Caesar thread, I really haven't notice much in the way of religious discussion at all.


But, I'm white, male, Christian and American so I probably am one of the most intolerant people you'll meet

none of those thing inherantly makes you intolerant. 


 


 


I've read some of the posts of the OP.  There is one in the ent. board that is shockingly racist.  Perhaps we should stop feeding the trolls

True... It used to be a lot worse several years ago, but nowadays, the bashing is more against Christian values than blatant Christian religion bashing.

Agrees but mostly still goes on every so often. Not as much since not as many new threads. Might pick up with more activity.  But I hope not. I would rather see interesting and fun topics where every one can have a bit of fun without getting segregated.

humanityresurrected Christian bashing? Really? Claiming reverse racism IS a sign of being racist guys.  How about the post 9/11 anti-muslim actions across america; n' as a Buddhist who also believe in Chinese old gods the exist b4 buddhism; I can tell you that whenever online people start pushing Christianity on everyone else I find that offensive, and if tell someone whatever faith helps you get through life its good you have it, but you shouldn't presume your faith is better than anyone elses, they get upset at that; but there are hundreds if not millions of sites that do nothing but say Jesus Christ is only way you be saved and no go to hell.  If told you believing in the Buddha's teaching's only way you not go to hell you say you would no be offended; but you see absolutely nothing wrong with Christians doing that? Acceptance of such actions is called passive bigotry; and it seem 3/4 of you are actively passive bigots.  I not say it not bad in China, it horrible there; but at least there if someone say "you racist" person ask how and try to change; here is you say "you racist" they call that reverse racism because you happen to notice that they are racist, and they see being racist a right and don't want  anyone reminding them of it.

I was wondering who "IULIUS CHRISTOS" was supposed to be... I think if he were Caesar he would not have been crucified (a punishment generally reserved for non-citizens of Rome, so you're safe there.)


White, male, Christian and American! Whoa. That's one hell of an indictment... she says, while really only taking the piss.


Edit: After this point I did have a look at the other thread. I think what it was saying was not so much that Jesus was Caesar as that Caesar was another Christ. This is actually valid (although not a valid cause for Christian-bashing) even though Caesar did not claim to be the son of Venus so much as her descendant (through Aeneas, founder of the Latin colony.) What is disputable is that knowing this somehow negates or diminishes the value of Jesus' teachings.


But I digress... lol

Okay. Serious face now. Here's the difference.


One person can say to another "That comment was racist". They may be right. They may be wrong -- but that would be cause for the recipient of said criticism to re-examine their intentions.


If they say "you are racist", they may also be correct. Who knows? However that is an ad hominem attack and therefore less likely to be valid.


IF, however, the same person says "All X people are racist" (substitute X for whatever you like-- anything fits here), then that must needs be seen as an expression of their own racism. (Besides just being generally incorrect. No one group is inherently more racist than another.)
