MY RESPONSE CONTAINS ***** IN FRONT
"You're obviously dating this person because of the way the look"
if u date someone solely for how they look then that makes u shallow.
so within the white race u gotta date someone with the same colour eyes/hair cos thatd be self hate too... cos they dont look like u... and have a different geneological back ground?
****YES, flatfootmonster, dating someone just because they are blonde with blue eyes is SHALLOW. You misinterpret my comment. When you date someone JUST because of the way they look, that is shallow, self-hate because if you are a brunette with brown eyes, how can you not date anyone who has those same physical attributes?
"Lexruther: Just because Jesus doesn't frown upon interracial dating doesn't mean it's automatically okay."
so becos u dont like it then it is wrong?
****No, I’m saying that religion shouldn’t be the your only source for judgment against right and wrong. I believe it’s wrong and I’m entitled to that. But, like I was saying there are things in this world that I people believe is wrong (I gave examples) and Jesus doesn’t frown upon it and because he doesn’t frown upon doesn’t mean that it’s okay, you can determine things that are right in wrong for without religion.
"Jesus probably doesn't frown upon someone being fired or decline a job because of their skin color, but that doesn't make it right that someone was fired or decline over skin color."
Actually Jesus acknowledged Christains would go through hard ship and the two most important things is to love your God above all and to love your neighbour, regardless of who they are as the isralites were foreigners in Egypt.
****Okay, bad example then. Still doesn’t change the fact that there are things in this world that Jesus doesn’t frown upon.
"You really cannot use religion as a foundation of racial issues, like reading the bible will solve things for the world…if that was that case, the KKK wouldn’t have promoted the bible while committing murders."
If everyone lived by the bible and what it promotes, what it actually says and not manipulations, then yes the world would be perfect. the bible has always been misused to prove points i.e. south africa, manifest destiny, WWII but u gotta use your own mind actually read the thing and see they talkin out they @ss
******Understand that “the world would be perfect if everyone followed the bible” is YOUR opinion. But, I love how you said that you have to “use your own mind” because that is what I’m talking about, in a different context of course. You have to use your mind to make judgments that the bible doesn’t guide you to judge, if he does guide you to judge it, you would find the message through hidden scriptures, but never upfront, so you have to use your mind to understand it.
"When black people were hanged and murder by during slavery and the civil war, god didn't frown upon it because it was a RACIST murder, no, he frowned upon it because it was a murder, simple as that."
this is the only thing u said that makes sense becos yes GOD DOES NOT SEE COLOR.
***WHICH IS EXACTLY WHY Religion (Christianity etc.) shouldn’t be brought into race matters….so here is where you contradicted yourself
"So, don't bring religion into racial matters, because it’s irrelevant."
religeon is relevant in ALL area of life if you a Christian.
****This is where you contradicted yourself because like you said “GOD DOES NOT SEE COLOR” so tell me, how is racial matters relevant to Christianity when god doesn’t give guidance SPECIFICALLY for racial matters because he DOES NOT SEE COLORS. Like I said, the bible doesn’t have to be your (lexruther’s) ONLY source of judgment for right or wrong, you can make judgments for yourself, others will disagree and agree, but at least you’ll have a mind of your own outside of your religion. I’m pretty sure Jesus doesn’t frown upon his followers having a mind of their own.
