White Christians are now a minority — but they’re getting more isolated and less tolerant!!!!

    So you want me to address your presumptions now? They are what they are.

      I'm just quoting from the OP.

        Blanket dislike of an entire group is, was and will always be bigotry. Pretty simple really.

        Some groups deserve this ISIS, white supremacists, etc......
        there are some very fine people in ISIS. very fine people on both sides.

          Was there comparative poll of other color Christians?
          The article does not speculate on whether non-white Christians are equally intolerant.

            So you're saying gweed's presumption is without basis in fact? Huh. Imagine that.

              Given that premise are we talking and even lower %?

                Christians the only group it's acceptable to hate.
                I'm sure for some it's a motivation. For others it's an opportunity to show hypocrisy. I've been on a hypocrisy kick lately due to the copious amounts I've seen lately.
                Also many aren't bashing JUST Christianity but religion itself. Most if not all religions have 'sects' with loose interpretations of what's written in their particular playbook.



                And I admit, 'most if not all' is the biggest link cop out there is.

                  The "fact" I based my presumption upon was the use of "white Christians" in the OP. Why would they designate "white Christians" as being less tolerant if there wasn't another group of Christians that was more tolerant?

                  Simple logical construction.

                      Lolz, why indeed? Could it be the leftist preoccupation with color combined with the antipathy for Christianity, the same preoccupation that drew you to this thread like a moth to a flame? I'm sure you weren't the only one to presume that though. But what you want to look for is comparative language like "more than," "less than" or "compared to."

                      Now you should say something clever like, "aw, poor white Christians!"

                              It really helped when you randomly inserted "body parts being chopped off" into the conversation.

                                Now you're getting it! Ideologies are what we can safely stereotype.
