Yeah, because Republicans are so good at following the teachings of Christ.

How's that "Love all mankind as you would love yourself" thing working out for you fellas?

The only reason that black people could vote for Barack Obama is that they ALWAYS vote for black people and that makes them the real racists!

/let's ignore that Paul Ryan worships Ayn Rand, who was openly hostile to Christianity and key Christian values like charity, and that Mitt Romney is, well, look at him.

FTFA: Talk about hardcore anti-Christian beliefs: not only does Obama support abortion, but he supports infanticide -- killing babies who survive failed abortions.



So he's using lies to make his point. Sounds legit.

The American thinker never really does much thinking. What crimes against Christianity? Profiting from abortion? Oh, wait, that was Romney. Obama is the one giving people health care.

"
Two thousand years later, biblical principles are scheduled for crucifixion in America."

Can we please get a lost of what exact biblical principles are being scheduled for crucifixtion. And can we get a list of what biblical principles the christians are willing to follow vs which ones they are goign to flat out ignore?

More to the point. can we start taxing the shiat out of churches, if for no other reason than to offset the cost of education to overcome the brainfarking the kids recieve in churches?

The attachment of African Americans to christianity is a seriously bizarre piece of mental misfiring. Something introduced to them by their oppressors primarily as a tool to keep them compliant should logically have been hurled aside with all speed when the shackles of slavery were, but no, the religious meme embeds its barbs in far too deep. Truly a sad phenomena, and repeated almost everywhere Christian empires used it.

If the chance to vote in a black president (and it is not even slightly fecking odd or racist that blacks should feel excited about doing so after what they went through), and one who will actually act in the interests of major black demographics (being a democrat), is enough to even momentarily overcome that then that's great.

The article literally casts Obama as the anti-Christ for heeding that of G-d in all people and recognizing the inherent right to equality that springs forthwith. He is demonized for resisting the implementation of a theocracy that, while crying 'freedom of religion', violates that very tenet by interfering with the decision making at worship groups such as mine where gays are wed in a religious setting though the government in its' current state of bigoted short-sightedness refuse to recognize them as legally married.

Equality and freedom of religion would mean that gays would have full marriage equality and worship groups would decide for themselves, but not for others, whether to conduct same gender wedding ceremonies. 

I have never felt such a powerful desire to pray for someone that bears no sign of physical illness. I feel so sorry for Marcus Lloyd. I suppose he wants so badly to walk the path. It's too bad he is lost in the woods of judgment.

Let's see, 95% of Black Americans vote for Democrats when the Democratic candidates are White, and 97% of Blacks vote for Democrats when that Democrat is Black. Rather than honestly examine why Blacks overwhelmingly vote for the Democratic party, Republicans like to claim that Blacks are slaves to government handouts, hate White people, or, in this case, are racist, ignorant, anti-religious, hypocrites. And then they wonder why Blacks turn away from there party in droves.

More likely, Black Americans recognize one simple fact: unless you are a millionaire who hates the poor and middle-classes, you'd be a fool to vote for the Republicans.

How the fark does this keep getting greenlit?

A rebuttal from someone who hasn't read, nor will ever read, this article: college educated people who vote for Romney are tacitly avowing that their education was just for show, and that nothing made it past the first layer of skin. Because their god wants them to be ignorant.
 
2012-08-28 08:10:30 AM
Either that or they're not such racist assholes that they'd view anything he did and does as an attack on Christianity.

The idea that Africa was devoid of Christianity until the white, northern European descent man arrived is untrue.

And I've always found the idea of African American Christians to be somewhat strange. I mean, it's a religion that was forced upon their enslaved ancestors, and usually was designed to keep them docile and obedient. If my ancestry had that kind of recent history, I'd tell Christ to go fark himself.

Whether it's true or not is irrelevant, because the OP was talking about African Americans (i.e. predominantly the descendants of slaves). I think you're going to have a hard time convincing people that their (slaves) Christianity wasn't pushed on them by the slave masters.

I think his point is a fair one, namely that forced cultural and religious changes seem to persist long after the removal of a ruling or owning class.

Black Christians are, for the most part, insanely socially conservative and love to spread derp about gays. Still, somehow, they continue to vote Democrat.

Whether or not parts of Northern Africa were Christian long before central and northern Europe were Christian is irrelevant to the impact of the slave trade and how Christianity was forced on the enslaved peoples of WEST Africa, where Christianity was non-existent before white slave traders set afoot on shore.

No, Jesus is usually depicted as belonging to the racial group of the painter more often than not.

A friend of mine saw a painting of the Last Supper in a church in Liberia and said that Jesus and 11 out of 12 disciples were dark dark brown (no prizes for guessing who the white, blue eyed guy was in that picture)

Obama voted against the Illinois version of the Born Alive Act

In fact, he lied about provisions of the bill in order to excuse why he helped kill it in committee.

So there no lie in that statement whatsoever. Obama just won't tell the truth about it.

lordluzr: How the fark does this keep getting greenlit?


Five reasons:

(1) There is a deluge of right-wing headlines in the queue and a dearth of left-wing headlines; statistically, right-wing headlines are more likely to be greenlit.
(2) The right-wing headlines are always more inflammatory/stupid/funny than their left-wing counterparts, and therefore also more likely to be greenlit.
(3) Because they're more likely to be inflammatory/stupid/funny, people are more likely to comment on them, thereby generating page views for Drew.
(4) While they're generally right-wing stories, the comments are 90% left-wing mocking; left-wing stories honestly don't generate nearly the same number of comments from the relatively small number of right-wingers on Fark
(5) Admins be trollin', yo.

I'm sorry, but I strongly feel that some of the statements on this thread marginalize people of African descent. For some reason, I think of the school readers that were once distributed to every first grader in America: the ones in which every character was white and blacks had no existence.Perhaps, it is a subtle form of racism to attempt to wipe African people from history; to make black people invisible in world society, but it is racism.

Regarding numbers of adherents, a faith can have disproportionate influence. I suspect, numbers alone do not tell the full story of the role of Christianity in Africa.

from the link:

One of the most fascinating possibilities is advanced by Ethiopian Christians who claim that they have the Ark today. In Axum, Ethiopia, it is widely believed that the Ark is currently being held in the Church of Saint Mary of Zion, guarded by a monk known as the "Keeper of the Ark," who claims to have it in his possesion. According to the Axum Christian community, they acquired the Ark during the reign of Solomon, when his son Menelik, whose mother was the Queen of Sheba, stole the Ark after a visit to Jerusalem. While in the not-so-distant past the "Ark" has been brought out for Christian holidays, its keeper has not done so for several years due to the tumultuous political situation in the country. The claim has thus been impossible to verify, for no one but the monk is allowed into the tent.

Did that guy really threaten the churches' tax status for supporting Obama. They really do just project their own actions on their opponents.

Also, it is so painfully obvious that David Barton exists solely as a sort of Christian Nationalist bullspit launderer, who's sole purpose is to make up reams of totally made up stuff for other idiots to cite as if it were actually information. He literally pops up everywhere these days as the go to guy for premium BS!

We have reached a critical mass of idiocy that threatens us as a species.
