Exactly right, Ben. The black people and others empower themselves this way.
I even called myself a Paddy with pride. Originally, it was a racist slur against the Irish.
Still seen in the term "Paddy wagon".

I prefer to call myself a Mick, but that's just me.

Guess it's too much to ask of them.
The most difficult Commandment is "Love your enemies".

If you can do that, all the others are easily accomplished.

Reason it's green is it rains all the time.

Mostly, you can't see it from the next hill...

todays lesson
exert
The Puritans viewed themselves as God's special people, replacing national Israel. Nowhere do the dangers of this assumption become more clear than in the Puritans' treatment of the native Americans. Since the Puritans considered themselves God's chosen people, they concluded that they had the right to take the land from the heathen Indians. The American Indians were the "new Canaanites" in America's "Promised Land." The fruit of Puritan theology was brutal. They saw their mission as convert these "Canaanites" to Christianity; failing that, it was acceptable to slaughter them in the name of Christ.

For example, the Puritan massacres of the Pequot Indian tribe on May 26, 1637, and again on July 14, 1637, were deemed by the Puritans to be directed by God -- Captain John Mason declared, "God laughed his Enemies and the Enemies of his People to Scorn, making them as a fiery Oven ... Thus did the Lord judge among the Heathen, filling the Place with dead Bodies" (Segal and Stinenback, Puritans, Indians, and Manifest Destiny, pp. 111-112, 134-135). Converting the pagans for God was acceptable to the Puritans, but killing the pagans for the Lord was also acceptable!

Defenders of the Puritans claim that it was the hostility of the Pequots that led to their unfortunate demise. But the Pequots were one of the most tranquil tribes in New England. History reveals that their "hostility" did not manifest itself until they were hunted like animals. For argument sake, let's say that the Pequots were the instigators of hostilities, virtual savages if you will (which they were not). Does this justify hunting them down, slaughtering the men, women, and children in their sleep, and then doing it again six weeks later to finish the job!?(Not exactly "battlefield" victories!) Moreover, the Puritans claimed it was in obedience to God that these pagans were slaughtered!

Here the reasoning of the Puritans defies logic and a sense of common decency, let alone Christian principles. Captain John Underhill also wrote of the Pequot slaughter: "Sometimes the Scripture declareth women and children must perish with their parents ... We have sufficient light from the Word of God for our proceedings." What an incredible testimony for one claiming to be a Christian!

Yes, in their twisted heads, they believe that they have a "right" to impost their beliefs upon everyone else. And nobody else has any rights what so ever.
let's do a simple & short experiment.
i'll say something regarding your statement above and then ask you "how does this make you feel":

you can take your gaytheistic evil-ution nonsense and stick it up your azz!

now - how does this make you feel?

if you were offended by it, it means that you want to impose your gaytheistic evil-ution nonsense on others.

thank you for participating in this study!:-)

Yet as soon as you succumb to the Christian brainwashing, you look down upon and hate all others outside of your evil cult. For as soon as you believe the lie that you are "chosen" and "saved", and others are not, you have taken the poison of hatred for them into your soul.

Sigh...

STILL asking your "god" to be your imaginary playfriend, and he hasn't replied yet?

Time to grow up and leave the silly fairy tales behind.
