7. Love the quote but...

Lovecraft was a severe racist, so not so much an example of progressive thinking...

On the Creation of Niggers
by H. P. Lovecraft

When, long ago, the gods created Earth
In Iove's fair image Man was shaped at birth.
The beasts for lesser parts were next designed;
Yet were they too remote from humankind.
To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man,
Th'Olympian host conceiv'd a clever plan.
A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,
Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.

9. That would be the logical fallacy "poisoning the well"

What does his views on race have to do with religion?

People around here quote henry ford. Something to the effect of paying workers a living wage. He was also a horrible anti-Semite. Should we not quote him? His anti-semitism is not related to his ability as an industrialist.

Thomas Edison was a dick and a hypocrite. Maybe we should throw out all his inventions because of that?

FDR was a great president, but he cheated on his wife multiple times. Should we discount everything he did and said? Down with social security!

Lincoln didn't thing black people were equal to whites. Sounds like racism to me. Maybe we should tear down all the monuments to that racist bastard!

If you poison the well enough, you're going to be left with nobody and nothing.

10. Locking.

Host consensus is that this is a religion thread that doesn't meet GD's SoP. Please consider reposting in the Religion forum.
