Nacho, my friend, please don't take Jennifer's bait so easily. Certainly she doesn't see her own opinion above can be turned back on that very opinion itself. Ridiculously irrelevant, for sure.

Perhaps she listens to too much Talk Radio?   :)

Before I assume anything do you want to clarify who you had in mind as being people who "never work a day in their lives" ?

The same people that fill up the welfare rolls, are on foodstamps and commit a high percentage of crime.

Let's just hand out loads of money and "reperations" for past and future wrongs so some people can continue to never work a day in their lives.

Oh yea, I think reperations is a total joke also.

I swear to God that I am SICK to death with hearing white men complain about reparations and affirmative action.

Sigh..."another one bites the dust"...

Seriously, I think Jakub's got this one pegged...

I think a mental & physical eval report would be more valuable then discussing a punishment.

what this guy did reminds me of my great-grandmother around the end of her life...some crazy $#!+ came out of her mouth that NOBODY knew what to do with, least of all her, if and when she ever "came around" to realize what had happened.

I also really admire the African-American ministers for being able to pray with and forgive the priest.  That was cool.

Antonius,
But you are seeing past what he is saying! In your example, "Hate Crimes Legislation" won't do anything that normal prosecuting would. You prosecute the crime. Violence is violence and murder is murder. The intent in this case is meaningless. It won't act as the deterrent that the law proposes to do! People will still hate because of race, etc. It's all about education, softening of the heart, etc.

Hi Elisha,

My example, in the case you quoted, wasn't about hate crimes legislation, but about the letter of the law being applied, rather than the spirit.


Oh, and by the way Nektarios, the largest beneficiaries of Welfare and foodstamps are poor white women. The largest beneficiaries of Affirmative Action are middle class white women. As for "commiting crimes", well, when you factor in white collar crimes, etc., white people make up a pretty large percentage of that statistic too. Look it up. I didn't know you had so much against white people. Chill out Malcolm!

Pedro - Glad you caught the Naughty By Nature Reference!

*Sigh!* - Once again I agree with my brother Aklie.  This thread has effectively been derailed by folks like our anti-white friend I addressed above who like to use the internet to vent about things they'd be scared to say to real people face to face.

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

I would have to agree with that. Too much nuance for my taste.
