  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Eggs are white and their candidate is black therefore this must be racism!

    Conservatives seem to have a problem recognizing and evaluating nuance. Issues are only black and white. i.e. If they have a black friend it means they can't be racist or if a black cop shoots and unarmed black person it can't have anything to do with systemic racism. They don't seem to understand that subtlety, nuance and context make a difference.

    Do you think that maybe the gorilla mask the attacker had on might be a clue or maybe the words she was using might make it more clear.

    I don't understand the connection between racism and a white woman wearing a gorilla mask.

    And what words, in particular, did she use ???

    To what extent should right wing media cover and report the truth? It seems some people would like all media to echo their own preferred narrative....regardless of its relationship with reality.

    It goes back to the idea that black people where closer to gorillas than white people and has been considered racist for a very long time.

    "Should," you say? Yes, of course the media should cover such news, particularly given all the attention otherwise directed at race relations, and because this incident occurred within days of an election that the whole nation has been paying attention to.

    But "Will" the media?

    Would it benefit the Democratic candidate to do so...or not?

    Any more questions?

    Perhaps the store was out of Guy Fawkes masks?

    Halloween in coming up, after all -- there's a lot of demand out there...

    There are YouTube videos of it. BUT couldn't find any WAPO or NYT, CNN.

    Msn and Yahoo will usually pick stuff up, as they just repost stuff. But you are right. None of the usual suspects wanted to cover it.

    Because it's not national news?

    Someone attacks a leading candidate at a public gathering but, because that candidate is a Republican, it's not interesting enough that the media might report on the specifics??

    There is no doubt, however, if that had happened to Newsom, the analysts from top to bottom would have been beating their breasts and shouting about QAnon (however that's supposed to be spelled), white supremacy, "insurrection," attacks upon "democracy," and "domestic terrorism."

    We all know the mythical enemies that would be cited as being close to taking over the world because an egg was thrown.

    The national news media have covered the recall election and the campaigning in California right along, however.
