    Re: Do you feel Christians are Discriminated against in America?

    I just showed my 90 year old uncle who lived in the South during the days of Jim Crow this thread,who remembers having to drink in "Coloreds Only" drinking fountains. Who remembers almost being lynched for registering fellow blacks to vote. Of being denied jobs and housing because of his color. He almost died laughing on how "discriminated" Christians are in America today.

    Yes, I know. DP is a perfect example of where Christians have been discriminated against. As I said, do you remember why the religion and philosophy forum had to be separated and why the religion section has a special rule set?

    Demonstrating as usual you have zero clue what discrimination means. You are dismissed.

    Do you and your 90 year old uncle realize that just because he was discriminated against doesn't mean that others cannot be also? Somehow I get the feeling that your grandfather also laughed when the LGBT community claimed discrimination also.

    Funny how you didn't answer my question. Do you remember why the religion and philosophy section had to be separated and why the religion section has a special rule set? Yes or no? If yes then perhaps you could say the reason?

    I don't feel discriminated against and haven't seen any signs of such a thing against Christians around the country, so no.

    Okay, on the incredibly miniscule, sub-atomically small chance you're not trolling, here's why you're link was pants on head retarded. And just for the record, you could have spared yourself the embarrassment (unless you're trolling, in which case you're achieving your objective right now) by first going to wikipedia to understand discrimination.

    Your decision to link to the DP home page was poo-in-hair stupid because Christians aren't being prevented from participating on Debate Politics!

    Do you understand that now, or do you need a six year old to draw a picture for you?

    So anonymous people on the internet, not taking crap from other anonymous people on the internet equates to discrimination, but only if it's on a religious topic and not on a political topic???

    Look at the abortion forum or gun forum...is there discrimination happening there????

    Uncle Sal is gay. That's kind of why I showed him this thread.

    You haven't demonstrated how you as a Christian are being discriminated against. Have you ever been denied housing because you are a Christian? I've been denied housing because I am black. How about being denied employment because of your religion?I know what it's like being denied a job because of my color. How many times have you been stopped by the cops for "driving while Christian"? And let's not go into all the b.s. me and my wife still go through for being an inter-racial married couple. Do you really want to get into a pissing contest about discrimination with a guy who was a young lad in the Deep South in the 50's and 60's? I agree with Cardinal in that you don't know what real discrimination is.
