    I stand by my statement..........In the year 2012 with maybe the exception being radical Islams there are no major religions that believe in Racism unless they are the Revs Jackson, Sharpton and Wright. or the Rev Farrakhan.

    Study Links Religious Groups and Racial Bias - USC News

    “Religious groups distinguish between believers and non-believers and moral people and immoral ones,” Wood said. “So perhaps it’s no surprise that the strongly religious people in our research, who were mostly white Christians, discriminated against others who were different from them — blacks and minorities.”
    Most of the studies reviewed by Wood’s team focused on Christians because Christianity is the most common religion in the United States.
    Her analysis found significantly less racism among people without strong religious beliefs.

    It's tempting to mention Glady Knight, just for the sake of using her as a “poster child” for black Mormons; but in truth, the vast majority of black Mormons are ordinary people, just like everyone else, and it's not really fair to hold up a world-famous celebrity as representative of a larger, less famous group of people.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    If you ever read the history of Mormons as I have you realize they were a crazy cult. They had some really whacked out ideas and did some horrific things in history, the Mt meadows massacre for instance. They have kind of folded into the main stream now but there is still some Mormons practicing polygamy that consider more mainstream Mormons to be heretics and no longer Mormon.

    I read Genesis 9:20-27. I did not find any mention of skin color, only that Canaan shall be a servant of servants.

    I mean, come on, taking that curse (aren't curses more for witches and warlocks?) and getting black skin out of said curse, is impossible.

    The use of the word 'race' meant something entirely different before the modern era. Different tribes and even different cultures were considered different 'races'; there were the 'German race', the 'French race', the 'Greek race', et cetera, et cetera, so yes, you're correct.

    your statement was irrelevant to the thread.

    a religion doesn't have to officially endorse racism, for its members to use religious texts to justify/excuse racism.

    I don't know, I haven't lurked there in a couple of years and didn't look around this time. The mention of 'Christian Identity' reminded me of Lindstedt so I dug up the link.

    You'll have to register and log in to see Pastor Lindstedt's forum 'LindstedtMania'.

    It's noteworthy that Ron Paul has raised millions from that 'subculture', and at VNN and some of the other sites for 'activists' listed in the 'White Reference' link. They loves them some Ron Paul. Not all of them are Americans, of course, but ole Paul has got the majority of their votes and a pocketful of their money over the years.

    They're big on 'raising racial awareness' and periodically launching 'campaigns', spamming sites like this one and most others, and many of them also run what they call 'False Flag operations', pretending to be an 'anti-Israeli Jew' is a big favorite, as well as pretending to be a 'Libertarian'. I don't doubt that at least a few of them post here under one of those memes.

    Posters like Thunder and sharon as well as many of the self-described 'Libertarians' always raise red flags for me on these boards.
