We can thank the Abrahamic (mostly Christianity) religions for both. The Roman Empire had no beefs with other races or homosexuals. During Saturilia, gay sex was rampant and the Romans never made much fuss about other races.

Then the Dark Ages happened in Europe, Christianity took over and Europeans became "God's chosen people" and started oppressing others for being different.

Ironically, as a brown guy currently living in a predominantly white country, I've never faced any Racism here (at least not in my face) but my people have been discriminated against in my own home-country, for a long time.

I'll take the cookies please.

Just curious but police brutality against other races? They get denied rights maybe not marriage and what not but when some with "power" will go against someone just because of skin color?

I mean Zimmerman has been said to be racist maybe? Following a black boy for no apparent reason to his house?

#35 Posted by Cgoodness (6158 posts) - - Show Bio

@thitiki: the closest evidence I've seen linking Zimmerman to being racist was a myspace comment saying something like "I no longer fear having to hit Mexicans on the streets, somethig something thugs breaking into cars"

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being extremely ignorant and 1 not being ignorant you are around a 9.5

Before you seek to throw an entire religion under the bus I believe it would be best for you to understand said religion better before you do.

#38 Posted by Superguy1591 (3968 posts) - - Show Bio

@eisenfauste: Just because it makes you uncomfortable, it doesnt make it false. YOU should read about the countless ways those three religions have helped spread suffering in this world.

Christianity is pro-slavery, it was used to justify slavery, Native American genocide, Colonialism, the Spanish Inquisition. Read about how Right Wing American Christians went to Uganda and turned a nation that could care less about gays into a nation of homophobes.

I know humans would find a way to hate each other even withput religion, but at least, without religion, the bigots wouldnt act like they have the moral high ground.

remove racism , im not against gay equality but, and forgive me if this seems cold , i think racism is the bigger problem and needs to be dealt with first

#40 Posted by Eisenfauste (8963 posts) - - Show Bio

Christianity is pro-slavery

This just show's me that you don't understand Christianity. Because people used something to further their own agenda and prejudice does not automatically mean that religion justify's the said act. And it does not.

those three religions have helped spread suffering in this world.

So first Christianity and now two more under the bus, let me guess one of them is Islam?

but at least, without religion, the bigots wouldn't act like they have the moral high ground.

Okay now you sound really biased, since when do you have to be religious to be a bigot? You don't is the answer.

And in your previous statement you stated that Roman's did not have a problem with anyone yet you neglected to mention that they had slaves, some of which they would force to kill each other in the gladitorial ring. You also failed to mention how many nations the Romans oppressed and utterly crushed to simply further their territorial gain.

Is that all it is across the world? Racism isn't limited to crude comments, but it's a nice thought that it is.
