So blacks are a permanent underclass, they are dependent, they avoid accountability/aren't held accountable (hard to tell what you meant), the standards for them are lower and their bad behavior is excused. (That's obviously not true....I suggest you look at incarceration rates for black men).

Is that about right, jimmie?

You're obviously not black since you said "them" not "we".....care to tell us how you decided all of this about the black community? (Since I'm not black.... I would't presume to state such things about the black community. Every black person I know is more than capable of speaking for themselves.)

BUT, why is it tha LARGEST POPULATION of "underclass' and people who are dependent, void of accountability lower standards, and bad behavior are located in areas under CONSERVATIVE RULE...

The "bible-belt" has without question, the LARGEST population of people drawing on SOCIAL SERVICES and the LOWEST EDUCATION and INCOME per capita than anywhere else in the country.

Great job YOU conservatives are doing there in the south...

You actualy believe tha t conservative lie, and I'll bet you don't have comparative figurs from about 1950 to the present to back up any part of it. Stop listening to what you WANT to hear and get some facts.

Christians will never admit to their error while they are Christians. Why do I say this? Because I think that organized Christianity has always just been a justification for oppression, immoral values, and bigotry. From day one.

Sure you think so. Just not a "liberal" as mis-defined by modern progressives, Leftists and pseudo-liberals in America. The meaning of the word is relative anyway. It doesn't mean the same in Europe, for instance.


And really, seriously, if you follow the teaching of Jesus, you won't be anything except a Son of God. An Heir to the Eternal Kingdom. You will reject such human labels and definitions.


Because God isn't defined by some human category. It's the other way around. Human categories can be defined by how well they reflect the character of God, as Jesus reflected the character of God.


And so, being a "liberal" or a "conservative" is okay, but it's better to be like Jesus.

After all, the world of man is made of nothing but individuals. If none of them are "responsible" for helping the needy, the orphan, the widow, the hungry... then who is?

Nonsense. But, I gotta admit... this is some great comedy material. You South bashers are a riot. Even funnier than your counterparts in the "Heritage not Hate" legions.

So.... why would support of government programs to reduce inequity preclude individual responsibility? Guess WHAT!? You can do BOTH, and unwillingness to support the government programs smacks of "You can have MY charity on MY terms."
