Now, I'm not a Christian myself. I will come right out and say that I am a Wiccan (lest someone else post that fact thinking they are "exposing" me). I converted in my teens, to the shagrin of my mother, because I found the teachings antiquated and overly judgmental of alternative thinking. However, I did grow up in a Christian household and I have strong morals instilled in me by my family.

The church I still attend with my mother has a very small congregation, and most of the people are senior citizens. I love going because it gives me the opportunity to volunteer and be a benefit to my community, even if I no longer practice the faith.

My question to you is, do you think that immorality in our community has increased as we have moved away from the Church? Do you think we could salvage our community by bringing faith back to to youth? How do you propose we go about making the Church more appealing?

If the answer does not lie in the church where does it lie? Education?(YES, but is this the only option?)

Immorality is the cornerstone upon which all black communities are built.

only idiots need the god, stories of the bogeyman and church to show them them the difference between right and wrong.

Too many black idiots around.

As a black atheist, I want to watch black idiots burn. The sensible blacks who are capable of thinking for themselves will still be around and build a better black community.

Moving away from God is indeed responsible for the increased immorality in the black community and our nation as a whole.
The church has been diluted in its role as moral conscience to the people. This is because the church has tried to become "more relevant."

The church does not need to become relevant. If it follows the Word of God, the church is already relevant. These are 2 major reasons the church has dropped the ball leaving Satan to have his way with our communities.

1) Not ensuring that younger generations have more than a superficial understanding of biblical truth.(Lots of people know Jesus died. Too many don't know much more than that.)
2) Trying to be the "cool kid" in order to achieve relevancy.(I know "Be yourself" is a cliche, but it's true. If we let God's Word "be itself", our communities would prosper.)

Im not advocating religion by the way. I want to improve our community. It just seems that as the Black Community forgot about the Church, so did we forget our morals.

the blk community is too involved with church..tht is the problem.Church and christanity causes hatred towards people like me..homosexuals..atheist...wom en....see religon is a bad thing.Religon tells people to kill and stone people to death when they are different...why must a person follow a religon tht kills people..tht are innocent? Where did the love go?it doesnt exist.Love comes frm atheism..u are ur own god/satan..everyone is two sides to one coin.Its in human nature to not have strict morals but loose ones instead..there is no reason to live a restricted life cuz u only have one life and u must make the best of it

This is why I ended up being Wiccan. The Wiccan Rede says: An ye harm none, so mote it be.

Which means, as long as it hurts no one (including yourself), it's fine.

I'm much less focused on the divine aspect and more on the spiritual aspects. Connecting with nature and respecting the earth. Harnessing natural energies to bring about change.

I would appreciate it greatly if this thread could remain ignorance and hate free.

We are all adults here. We can do better

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SEPARATE MORALITY FROM RELIGION.....IT CAN'T BE DONE.
Right....thou shall not kill
Right....thou shall not steal.
In every country, culture, society or civilization, there is MOSAIC LAW against murder, theft, etc.
Walk into any court in the world and tell that court you are not bound by MOSAIC LAW because, you don't believe in God. Watch that court to apply MOSAIC LAW anyhow.
well ive never killed anyone or stolen anything recently..so im following good morals and im atheist.Society forces "morals" on people tht dnt follow the religon and sends them to jail if they dnt follow what u said.And like i said before ur religon is very judgemental and teaches hate and i will stand by my word.Can u tell me why most religons in general..jew..christian muslim stones people to death and kills them..and tht is suppose to be sum law..or how about allowing slavery...most blks are still slaves to the wm but mentally

Morality....knowing the difference in right and wrong.
There is right and wrong, good and bad
Caios.....without a cognitive idea of right and wrong there is caios. without rules, people would drive anyway they want. without penalties, people would do as they please...caios!
You've never killed or stolen anything is a lie. You have murdered the character of men and stole their identity as illustrated in one of your post

Did BM do anything personally to you or just what you've observed in general?

Did religion teach you to hate all men to the point of wishing them death?
Something is wrong with a person that expect the world to cater to them and hate others. Where is this on and off switch in humanity?
The same injustice that befalls bm is knocking on the doors of bw. If you're estatic over the destruction of bm, what will you do when it happens to bw?
<quoted text>
yup religon hates women so i hate them back.If it happens to bw..then it just happens..there is nothing i can do to stop something like tht
