Re: Christian ORIGIN of RACISM!

American-Indian Shamanism does not recognize the concept of 'sin', for example. No it's not just the terminology it's the concept and how it is handled. Islam does NOT accept the free gift of salvation by Jesus Christ--they are wholly "works righteousness"-oriented. The Bible CLEARLY teaches that works-righteousness DOES NOT SAVE. Our works are as filthy rags when it comes to trying to use them to gain favor with God rather than believing on Christ. huh? There is a passage where it says God...

I was actually referring to the "involuntary servitude" portion of the 13th amendment.. To me it is pretty dead on.. 13th Amendment. Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Yes, I have served in the military- the USArmy to be specific and I was in an infantry unit. These soldiers were doing their duty, and there is no dishonor in that. Who joins the military without considering the possibility of death? Separation from family, death, dismemberment etc are all part and parcel and it's unrealistic for civillians to think that we can be at war and have no deaths. If you have an ax to grind against the president, don't use a dead soldiers picture to gain sympathy...

No, no .. I liked the movie (the fight scenes w/ the machines was awsome, it really felt like an actual war front), it was just the crappy ending. Is the war over? Is Neo dead? Is trinity dead?

This whole idea of having to placate spirits is what gets people going about Voodoo. In Christianity we are not to worship angels (be they good or demon), nor placate them in any way.
