    Re: White Christian conservatives should oppose protests by white supremacists

    Shouldn't we just say that all people of society should oppose racism? Why again are we singling out white Christian Conservatives?
    Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.

    Two reasons why it is important to emphasis white conservative Christians making that statement. Historically, a number of the groups that have been extremely racist, and sometimes violently so have been White christian conservatives. That has given the association in other people's minds linking white christian conservationism with racism. So, if you get that group condemning racism, that helps counter the effect of the stereotype. The next part is that people who are the white conservative Christian racists will be more willing to listen to someone who is also their own demographic to learn they CAN change and overcome those attitudes, rather than have it hammered from 'people that would be considered outsiders.
    No one needs a war more than a Politician who is low in the Polls.

    God sent his son a brown Middle Eastern man to save the whole world, including sinners of every race and ethnicity (John 3:16). Genuine Christianity overcomes social, ethnic, and gender barriers (Galatians 3:26, 28).

    That is why we should fight white nationalism and other forms of racism tooth-and-nail, not only from the voting booth, but in our neighborhoods, at our churches, and on our social media. We should fight it when it takes the form of personal prejudice; when a person of one ethnic heritage intentionally denigrates or harms a person of another ethnic heritage.

    Seems reasonable to me.

    Matthew 5:43-48

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    I'm not trying to be holy guys, but I think the bible tells us the other way? Well the thread says opposite which is somehow agreeable, but I think the comment section is different? Everyone wants to fight white supremacist fire by fire. What do you think guys?
