under ANY Christian group that uses the concept of sin, “White supremacy is sin” is accurate.

I have a few actual supremacists on my friends’ list, They’re *otherwise* not bad people but they support some bad ideas. So when I saw this, I share it and wrote:

White supremacy is a sin.

I’m agnostic but I’ve been Christian enough to know that white supremacy is a sin under any religious system that uses the concept of sin.

While I call myself agnostic for convenience these days but I’ve been Christian enough to know that under ANY Christian group that uses the concept of sin, “White supremacy is sin” is accurate.

But if you don’t hold to a Christian value system, then “White supremacy is sin” can be a meaningless statement to you and you can easily move forward with whatever you have for your value system instead of Christian.

Oh they can. Lots of people have stupid ideas they hang onto for whatever reason. Maybe it’s low self-esteem, I dunno. Maybe they’ve accomplished nothing in their lives but they can try to ride on the backs of other people and say “me too”.

It’s more sad than anything.

===

I don’t know why it’s necessary to ride on the coattails of the accomplishments of others.

If your accomplishments show YOU to be ‘supreme’, that’s great. But if the accomplishments of others are supreme but yours are not, why do you ride on their coattails?

====

It’s not an indiscriminate label  It’s a pretty clear one.

===

The sign says “White supremacy is a sin. Say it.”  Can you say it? I could say it without hesitation.

—-

You’re dragging a lot of other stuff in. The sign makes a simple request that shouldn’t be hard to say.

====

The sign is in front of a Christian church. “White supremacy is a sin.” is on the sign. That viewpoint is true from a Christian perspective.

If you are a Christian, white supremacy is incompatible and a mistake that needs correction.

If you are not a Christian, then the sign would not apply to you and you could go about your merry way, believing what you wish about things.

===

 

Within the context of Christianity, white supremacy is a sin. A sin is “missing the mark”. In short, if you are into white supremacy, you’re falling short of what it means to be a Christian and it needs correction from within the church.

Secular authorities are not bound by what happens in a religion but people in a religion are bound by the rules from within their religion.

====

That refers to paying taxes, does it not?

===

Is being into white supremacy paying taxes to the secular state? How so?

===

It’s not “counter-Christian” entirely. Sin doesn’t mean “counter”. It’s “missing the mark”. Like shooting a bow and arrow and missing the bullseye.

====

I’d gladly accept I’m wrong if I’m wrong. Did “sin” gather other connotations within general culture? Sure.

Do some christian groups use the word “sin” improperly? Yes

===

I’m not ashamed to be white . It’s a happenstance of birth. I inherited a culture through zero work of my own.

===

I don’t buy into the victim status that comes with white supremacy.

====

If you’re supreme, you’re supreme. No need to be explicit unless you’re no longer supreme and you’re complaining about others being supreme now.

If someone else is supreme now, then you’re a victim of their supremacy over you. Hence, to be a white supremacist is to declare yourself a victim.

=====

I don’t understand the ‘need’. If you’re supreme, you’re supreme. If you’re not supreme, then you need to stick together only with your own kind for safety against others.

In short, a victim status.

====

Listen to yourself:

“Should be allowed”.

Victim status is all through how you talk about it.

====

“allowed”. Again that’s asking permissions. If you’re asking permissions, that means you’re not in control or supreme or on top or in charge and you’re at the whim of someone else.

====

Then why are you fighting from within if that’s the case

====

So it sounds like what you’re saying is that “some white” are victims of “some whites”. If that’s what it is, then why bring up other groups to make your points?

====

I have an up-north, liberal-minded value system. “White supremacy” is a strange mindset to me. Never grew up with it around me. Always taught as a relic of a by-gone era, long past.

So, it’s not how I think. This why I ask what seems obvious to you.
