Response to liberal_at_heart (Reply #23)

Fri Mar 15, 2013, 10:14 AM

75. I've always been fascinated with the way in which African Americans

have embraced Christianity as their own, since it was used as a colonialist tool to justify their enslavement. Fascinating that they internalized it so much they were able to use it, in turn, as justification of their own liberation. However, it's disheartening to see many black churches now using Christianity against others - GLBTs come to mind, specifically during Prop 8.
