Hard To Argue With This!
#1
The following appeared on my facebook feed:

"As a white male, I have a difficult time grasping the devotion of either African Americans or Native Americans to Christianity.  To me, it seems like Christianity is a slap in the face (to say it mildly) of both races; as Christianity was introduced into the African culture at the expense of human trafficking, torture, murder, and slavery; and was introduced into the Native American culture by way of conquest, torture, murder, and slavery.  The Native American Christian is practicing the faith of those who tried to wipe his ancestors off the map, and the African American Christian is practicing the faith of those who captured, bought, cruelly transported, sold, and enslaved their ancestors.  I just don't understand ..."

To which I responded, after liking and sharing the post:

"Then again, how can anyone not on the very top rung of our wealth ladder, regardless of race, be devoted to an American Christianity that has adopted, hook, line, and sinker, the economic tenets of William Graham Sumner, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and, worst of all, Ayn Rand? And here's a thought-proving fact: The ancestors of today's Pakistani Muslims were low-caste Hindus who converted to Islam to escape the Hindu caste system."

It has gotten to the point that, in the event of a full-out religious war between Islam and low-church Protestant fundamentalist-hijacked American Christianity, I would respond the same way that Bart Hunter answered Helen Jorgensen's "Don't tell me you're on their (his wife and her husband's) side" remark in the movie A Summer Place:

"Let's just say this - I'm not on yours."
