There is a certain element that thinks they own this country. This element screams from the top of
its lungs that it is more patriotic and Christian than the rest of you. In fact this element is neither Christian nor American.
My country's ideals are open to all who decide to believe. Any notion of racial supremacy is a mockery of the founding ideals of my country. Blacks are Americans who serve our nation in all capacities. The notion that they are not equal or that being Black is a detriment is Unamerican. I also will never tell a person who to love based upon anything other than character.
It is fine to dislike Obama's policies and Obama personally. There are many valid reasons for doing so. It is valid to point out he got 90% of the Black vote and would not have been elected without it.It is also valid to state that many whites voted for him out of a belief he could heal racial divisions. It is accurate to point to the slavish coverage in the media. It is not okay to focus on his race and rant that he is a tool of the Jews.
Understanding America from its Judeo Christian roots is fairly simple. The other day I went with
Sunbeam and met Jews of all types and description. I met Jews from Turkey, Morocco, Russia, Poland and of course the USA. There are plenty of young Chinese females adopted raised in Jewish homes that consider themselves Jewish. There are plenty of Black Jews from Ethiopia and some from mixed marriages and conversions. There are many different communities that range from reform to the Chasidic sects. Most shop in the same stores, eat in the same establishments and marry between the groups. The exceptions are some Chasidic groups marry
amongst themselves and the Syrians tend to do so as well.
The Jewish community is not unique. The vast majority of Christians understand that Christ is open to all who decide he is the savior. The notion that any group is excluded on the basis of race
is a mockery of Christianity. Any notion of racial supremacy is a mockery of the message of Jesus. We do have many devout Christians on this site who are genuine such as Junglemom, TMW, AOW, Zinla, Warren and many others. None of the commenters embrace a racial exclusionary form of Christ.
If America is to embody the Judeo Christian ideal than it must be open to all who embrace the concepts embodied in the Constitution. We can acknowledge racial differences, but those diffrences do not make people less American.
There are many out there who have a paranoid view that Jews/Zionists control America. There is almost a fundamentalist fervor amongst these false patriots that America needs to be rescued
from this element. This is not Conservatism and it is a mockery of conservative values. It is a paranoid form of mental illness masking itself as political thought. Oddly, these so called Conservatives readily repeat the lines of Communists and freely associate with them in common fronts.
The subject of homosexuality is one that the false patriot holier than crowd is obsessed by. Even in a religious Jewish context homosexuality is one of many sins. Included on the same list is adultery, masturbation and pre and extra marital sex. In reality we live in a country based on Civil law. Sexual behavior is a private matter that is within the bounds of personal liberty between consenting adults. I do not want a Saudi style government stoning masturabators or anyone else. We would also quickly have a country left with Pat Boone and around three other people.It is okay to be against gay marriage and have discomfort with the gay lifestyle. However, it is wrong to hate people for behavior that is private, consentual and to be blunt is not
I value personal liberty and want government out of my bedroom and refrigerator. We are coming to an era where elites will decide to abuse the tax code and tax soda and likely soon potato chips. Government intrusion into our private lives is something that needs to be opposed.
