German and French Catholics were always white in America.   Irish, Slavic and South European Catholics (esp from Southern Italy) were a different matter.


I am honored to have a whole thread dedicated to me and my racism. At least, to the best of my knowledge, my anti-semitism has not deserved a whole thread up till now Smiley

BTW, are Jews white? What about Catholics? Feel kind of ridiculous having to explain such obvious things.

Not monolithically

Indeed.

I never realized Beta Jews were an actual thing.  So who are the Alpha Jews?

We need to get a hold on Feeblepizza and ask him.
His friend GusChiggens too.

Nah, Gus was an expert of Afircan-American issues.

Gus was the one who started the thread, and he was accused of being feeblepizza's sock. He wasn't.

7  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Why did we stop inventing gods? on: August 20, 2016, 05:04:15 pm
The short answer is that gods were originally created (I'm obviously referring to polytheistic religion here) to explain things that mankind had no understanding of.  Very simple things.  Rain, snow, natural disasters, disease, famine, victories (or losses) in battle, plant growth, et cetera.  Yahweh emerged in Jewish tradition as the one true God (or at least, the only God that may be recognized).  "Allah" is not a new god because Islam is a monotheistic faith; "Allah" is the Arabic word for "God."  By definition, monotheistic faiths cannot invent new gods, only deliver new revelations or prophets.

I agree.

A new prophet, since a person, would just be inventing a new God. That is what Mohammad did.

I still think it strange that Muslims settled for his demonstrably immoral creed and that the world is not acknowledging that we need a better and more moral prophet.

Mohammad was basically rejected by the people of his day until, like Christianity, he grew his religion by force of arms.

Christianity and Islam have both settled for immoral gods of war as both grew their religions by war instead of good deeds.

DL

 

They are the same god.
8  General Discussion / Alternative History / Would there have been an Iraq War if John McCain was president in 2001? on: August 19, 2016, 07:47:58 pm
Let's say McCain somehow beat Bush in the 2000 Primary. He still steals the election.

Does the Iraq War still happen? It's universally agreed that Gore wouldn't have done it, but would McCain?

Note: 2000 McCain is a different beast from 2008+ McCain.
9  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Opinion of Bush v. Gore (the U.S. Supreme Court decision)? on: August 18, 2016, 08:20:35 pm
One of the worst decisions in the history of the Supreme Court.
10  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of US Presidents Series: Richard Nixon through George H. W. Bush on: August 18, 2016, 03:13:20 pm
Are you going to include both Trump and Hilary in the next one, or are you just doing Clinton Bush and Obama?
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you rather have as president? on: August 18, 2016, 03:12:31 pm
Ford of course. He's one of the best people ever to serve as president.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why has Bill Clinton been so reluctant to criticize Donald Trump? on: August 18, 2016, 02:04:31 pm
Bill doesn't want to come across as a hypocrite. That's my guess.

Nixon did better in D.C. also, for reasons that most atlasians should know.

Obama isn't a failure.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why will Donald Trump win or lose in your view? on: August 16, 2016, 02:23:52 pm
1). The GOP cannot win minorities, which hurts them now more than it ever did. This problem predates Donald Trump, so it's not his fault.


Not only does it predate Trump in politics, it predates Trumps birth: The last time a Republican won the minority vote was in 1928.

Montana? It was Johnson's 2nd best state in 2012.

Todays liberals are tomorrows conservatives, so yes.
20  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of US Presidents Series: Franklin D. Roosevelt through Lyndon B. Johnson on: August 12, 2016, 09:28:36 pm
Since we're going 5 at a time, next is Nixon-Ford-Carter-Reagan-Elder Bush, then finally Clinton-Younger Bush. What are you going to do, add both Mrs. Clinton and Donald Trump on the poll? That way it could still be five.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of US Presidents Series: Franklin D. Roosevelt through Lyndon B. Johnson on: August 12, 2016, 08:54:28 pm
Savoir of the world is getting HP votes from ungrateful conservatives as usual.

I voted FF for FDR. Does that make me a grateful conservative? Tongue

Yes, it does. Failure to recognize the man who saved the world isn't necessarily a conservative thing, but that was the closest I can think of to someone who would vote HP for him. Maybe a radical socialist or something would have been better?
