75. Well Jesus, if he even existed, was a hard-core liberal. Further, I'm not throwing anything at you

 

except to call you on your BS "there are good people in the worst places in America so we have to tolerate them" excuses. Because that's all they are.

Right is right, period.

That was the core of your saviourís message, do whatever it takes and pay whatever it costs. Love everybody, turn the other cheek, give till you have nothing left to give, John 3:12, He even sacrificed his record of perfection (Matthew 21:12) trying to tell you guys what is required.

I'm merely committed to the lessons that He was trying to teach you guys, and I don't even believe he existed. Yet you accuse me of "looking down my nose" at you because you aren't willing to make the sacrifices He clearly told you had to be made in order to be a good person and to heal the world.

Sounds like you are the one trying to lawyer your way out of doing what you know is right. I Lived in Georgia and liked it very much. As an educated, personable white man that was willing to abide by the dominant culture, much of which I also like very much, I would almost certainly have done even better had I stayed there. But as I already stated, I am actually committed to bringing as much good as I can to the world, and I found precious little sympathy for that in my time there.

One of the very first things I learned about The South, is that hypocrisy is a way of life there. So you can cram that attitude you hope to project where it belongs. I have seen your ways and the results it has wrought.
