So-called Christians have been claiming that mankind has been on a downward spiral for eons.
In college I took two classes, "The History of the South" and "Black History". And before you jump to conclusions, I went to a southern Baptist college in TN. The class was taught by an 80 year old Baptist minister from South Carolina.
Anyhow, he talked about how southern segregationists and slave owners used to go to church, where their pastors would preach about how God supported the separation of races and supported slavery. They would pull out that one verse from Ephesians, "Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters".
Exodus and Deuteronomy was also used to preach against integration.

Yes. You are right. From beginning to end, one of the main themes of the Bible is separation. According to the historical record:

"And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech." (Genesis 11:1)

"And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there." (Genesis 11:2)

"And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter." (Genesis 11:3)

"And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth." (Genesis 11:4)

"And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded." (Genesis 11:5)

"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." (Genesis 11:6)

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 14:12)

After the Republicans invaded our Southern States, they divided them into military districts for the purpose of enlarging their political power. To enable their rule over the defeated White Christian male, the Republicans disenfranchised him while at the same time they denied his right to hold public office. At the same time they enfranchised the Africans for the purpose of ruling over White women and men. The current preposterous notion of Homosexual "marriage" is a direct outgrowth of that Republican power grab that used their African allies to subjugate the White Christian, as well as to destroy the Christian religion.

lets see, there have only been 4 black senetors in the US senate ever....

so the answer to my question seems like, NO....

the white man still holds power pretty firmly...

all minorities are vastly underrepresented in both chambers....

having a half white- half black president WAS A HUGE step forward...

im sure abe lincoln and tad stevens would be proud.........ahhhhh the rethugs of old!!

ps: I never realized lincoln was so good looking, until i saw the movie(sarcaasm)

As does your side. "A person should be able to marry the one they love". SSM argument based on emotion. Swap out persons for person, and there's an argument for polygamy.

Tell that to the court.

Yes. I suppose if we were to be ignorant of history - willfully or otherwise - your premise would have some degree of merit. The fact is, though, as opposition grew to Republican/African rule throughout the South, the defeated White Christians regained control of the political machinery and enacted laws that effectively ended the horror of African rule. That lasted until the 60s 70s revolutionary era which once again resulted in the Africans gaining control of taxpayer funded Governmental Apparatuses

ROME, ITALY (Catholic Online)- The Pope's family comes from Portacomaro Stazione a wine producing region in Asti, known to many Americans for its sparkling Asti Spumante. This is where his father worked on an Italian railway line before immigrating to Argentina. 

Italians immigrated to Argentina in large numbers between 1857 and 1930 with more than 300,000 settling in Argentina.

Pope Francis, as a first-generation Argentinean, has plenty of family back in Italy. He isn't alone, as about 60 percent of all Argentineans share Italian ancestry. He also speaks fluent Italian and is sufficiently familiar with Italian culture as to be considered an insider, albeit one posted from overseas.

Pope Francis still has several cousins in the country who he has visited on previous occasions.

In Italy, several of Francis's family are hoping to visit the Vatican soon as well as deliver congratulatory gifts. It is likely they'll get a chance to see him, for although he is busy, he is also humble and a man of all the people, at least so it seems.

As Cardinal Bergoglio, he commonly spent time with the poor and common folk of Buenos Aries, ministering to them charitably, much as Saint Francis over seven centuries ago. Bergoglio was also known for using public transportation rather than a chauffeur to get around.

While some of his down-to-earth traditions will need to change, after all, he is the now the Pope and a leader of 1.2 billion people. He will now need to spend more time surrounded with security and monsignori, as he goes about his daily work.

Still, we can probably expect surprises from this earthly pope, who is just as comfortable on a public bus as he is at the head of his Church.

If you are just curious, then just ask the question, that's all.
