And you have such a likeable personality you think people cotton to you in droves huh?
Small minds give word play with symbols of small thoughts of self loathing. You should try to play like an adult and you might get more respect.
Instead of insulting everyone and trying to be king of the hill, you should invite yourself to discuss the issues brought up in this thread, but NO, you want to show you azz with nearly every post.
Wallowing in the mud and expecting to do the same only makes you a mud bug.

Yep, the (lack of) class will ultimately show up, just give it a little time. Recent examples below:

"jerk yo-self off chithead!"

"GFY, and your chiteatin' dog, too."

I've been watching this thread for some time, but not a poster. I have a contribution.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. We have all heard that line.

The new version overheard in our restaurant:
Give a man a welfare check, a free cell phone, free Internet, cash for his clunker, food stamps, section 8 housing, free contraceptives, Medicaid, 99 weeks of unemployment, free medicine and he will vote Democrat the rest of his life, even after hes dead and may be many times.

Lack of class can be VERY evident without using strong language.

BTW - Why did you steal the Jus' Sayin' tagline that I used to use from me? I gave it up after about a week because I decided it was too stupid and repetitive. Maybe you like stupid and repetitive. Your constant use of "clueless and uneducated" "libroid" "liberace" would be evidence of that, as well as you can have an utter lack of class without cursing.

Right Wingers can draw most bizarre conclusions.
No wonder we cant trust you all to even attempt to think logically.
Illegals should be deported and those who employee them should be imprisoned.
Its you Right Wing Wackos who hate accountability and always want to "move on".
You wanted to "move on" and not prosecute Nixon who committed more felonies in office than could be counted.
You wanted to "move on" after Ronnie Ray-Gun shredded the Constitution and committed felony after felony selling guns to the Taliban, illegally funding rebels in Central and South America, and using Noriega to smuggle more cocaine to American children than Pablo Escobar.
And after Bush lied us into wars that killed hundreds of thousands, bankrupted America, and committed so many War Crimes some of his administration cannot travel abroad for fear of arrest and trial, you want to "move on".
Nope we Normal Americans like accountability.
Own up to it for once for God's sake, and at least pretend you'll hold your own accountable.
Oh wait...
It's Right Wing wackos who runs away from accountability like vampires hide from the sunshine.
Never mind.
The above post is brought to you from the planet "Libroid".

Geeeeee. I don't see criticism of ANY Democrat presidents. Hmmmmm. THOUGHT you consider yourself an Independent. rotfl

The ONLY reason you like Obama is because he sold himself to the Unions. What has he done for you? He protected the unions in the auto industry to pay you back. Since then.....nothing.
He refused to step in in Wisconsin. He felt he had settled the debt.

Black Theology of Liberation
By James H. Cone
http://books.google.com/books...
I have read the preface and the first 18 pages, I cannot pull up any more (apparently the preview function limits the number of sections available), but within these first 18 pages Cone defines what Black Liberation Theology means to him.
As far as I'm concerned both the Preface and the 18 pages that I was able to preview, and the links that I referenced here ( http://www.topix.com/forum/city/blairsville-g... ) do provide enough context for me to say that the quotes that you find so offensive are presented out-of-context.
I still find it interesting that when you were pressed to provide a source to establish context you were unable to do so, and instead provded a link to a page full of quotes (see soadahead below) that were pulled out of context.
Obviously you see things differently and will continue to do so regardless of anything I present, but what you fail to realize is that I don't care that you are not persauded, it's not about changing your mind.
.....
I truly find myself stunned that you could read what you say you did and not come away with a recognition of the perversion of the Gospel that Cone presents. From his opening statement he redefines what "theology" is in order to make his argument. That is positively Orwellian - and Cone does it repeatedly.

"Theology"
-Merriam-Webster
: the study of religious faith, practice, and experience; especially : the study of God and of God's relation to the world

Cone, A Black Theology of Liberation
Preface to the 1986 Edition
"Theology is not universal language about God. Rather, it is human speech informed by historical and theological traditions, and written for particular times and places. Theology is contextual language - that is, defined by the human situation that gives birth to it. No one can write theology for all times, places, and persons.

=======
Then when he discusses how he will not debate white theologians:
"White theologians wanted me to debate with them about the question of whether "black theology" was real theology, using their criteria to decide the issue. With clever theological sophistication, white theologians define the discipline of theology in the light of the problem of the unbeliever (i.e. the question of the relationship of faith and reason) and thus unrelated to the problem of slavery and racism. Using a white definition of theology, I knew there was no way I could win the debate."
page xvii

"using a white definition" - since when are there different definitions of a word depending on your race?

"Racism is a disease that perverts one's moral sensitivity and distorts the intellect."
page xviii of the 1986 Preface

Is the irony of that completely lost on you?

==========
I WAS hoping to change your mind. I was hoping that your arguing with my questioning of Cone's theology was just a knee jerk support of someone on the Left and that with a little information you would realize you should stop. There are discussions I do not get into on this forum because I either realize I just don't know enough about the subject or I realize I am conflicted on the subject - so best to stay out of it.

If this topic is of any interest to anyone else, below is the first page of Cone's preface to "A Black Theology of LIberation", 1970 Edition

"The reader is entitled to know what to expect in this book. It is my contention that Christiantiy is essentially a religion of liberation. The function of theology is that of analyzing the meaning of that liberation for the oppressed so they can know that their struggle for political, social and economic justice is consistent with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Any message that is not related to the liberation of the poor in a society is not Christ's message. Any theology that is indifferent to the theme of liberation is not Christian theology.
In a society where persons are oppressed because they are black, Christian theology must become black theology, a theology that is unreservedly identified with the goals of the oppressed and seeks to interpret the divine character of their struggle for liberation. "Black theology" is a phrase that is particularly appropriate for contemporary America because of its symbolic power to convey both what whites mean by oppression and what blacks mean by liberation. However, I am convinced that the patterns of meaning centered in the idea of black theology are by no means restricted to the American scene, for blackness symbolizes oppression and liberation in any society.
It will be evident, therefore, that this book is written primarily for the black community, not for whites. Whites may read it and to some degree render an intellectual analysis of it, but an authentic understanding is dependent on the blackness of their existence in the world. There will be no peace in America until whites begin to hate their whiteness, asking from the depths of their being: "How can we become black?" I hope that if enough whites begin to ask this question, this country will no longer be divided on the basis of color. But until then, it is the task of the Christian theologian to do theology in the light of the concreteness of human oppression as expressed in color, and to interpret for the oppressed the meaning of God's liberation in their community."

I need go no further than the "religion of liberation."

This tells me Cone has religion and social justice mixed up in his head.
Nothing could be further from the truth, i.e. "Christianity is the redemption and salvation of souls."

What has happened to this forum? It used to be interesting and a person could actually get information on what is going on. We had debates, pro and con, which could be spirited. We had ideas and different thoughts. It was thought provoking. It was fun.
Now it has become nothing but trash talk. No ideas, just which person can out trash talk another person. It isn't cute anymore and is juvenile.
I wonder which poster will be the first to inform me to just go away, with some new trash talk. Let me guess---hummm.
I always said if the shoe fits, wear it.
