Over the last few weeks I have been discussing the views that racial supremacy is not in line with
American values. I want to point out that it is not sanctioned by Judaism or Christianity. There is something severely warped in the minds of any Judeo Christian who believes that God sanctions
racial supremacy of any kind. Perhaps if noted author Stephen Schwartz stopped in he would add most varieties of Islam to this list.
I want to point out that no known large group of Jews endorses any kind of kook theories about race. Even the bug eyed Kahanist nuts accept Jews regardless of race provided they were born to a Jewish mother or converted. Any notion of human value based on race is deeply offensive to Jews.It is beyond incomprehensible that a scholar who is indeed a friend to the Jewish people could get this one so wrong. The logic is that a people whose families were exterminated on racial supremacy idiocy should then subject another group to this madness. Any devaluation of life based upon crank theories of race is very offensive to Americans and exponentially more so to Jews.
There are many wonderful religious readers of this site who are Conservative and religious. There is Junglemom who has dedicated her life to spreading the word of Jesus in Latin America.
There are many others from TMW, AOW, Warren and many others to numerous to name. And woe unto any KKK goon that ever goes near Mr Beamish. I have no idea what sort of devious mischeif he would plot, but I do not think it is possible to give clowns wearing bed sheets and pillow cases wedgies. Maybe some form of pink food coloring applied via a super soaker might be
appopriate. None of the Christians I am proud to call friends go near racial supremacy.
There is something severly warped about people who call others athiests or radical sons based upon stating the basis of law in our country is Civil Law. We do not have second class citizens of any type. The basis of our law is to respect individual rights and religious freedom. There is a concept of equity meaning that the law should treat people similarly or provide equal opportunities. I have disagreed with many over my support for Civil Unions. I respect that there are some who feel differently. This type of argument is part of our tradition of intellectual freedom.
However, I will not dignify the hypocrisy of people wraping themselves in our flag and pretending to be holier than thou while embracing racial supremacy. Sorry, but while my disagreement is within the bounds of intellectual freedom that is part of our traditions, racial supremacy makes a mockery of those traditions and is not Christian in any definition. Even in my casual reading of the New Testament it is an inclusive concept welcome to all.
Sorry, but I have never represented myself as a Conservative. I am a Rudy Republican. However, if people are going to make dogmatic litmus tests to determine who is a Conservative racial supremacists are not even close to the definition.
