  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.

    The issue is only the Haitians were hunted with horses and whips. THAT didn't happen with the other migrants. I cannot help to believe skin color has something to do with the difference.

    American cops pull some unbelievably ridiculous nonsense. You guys best be careful about that and get some better training for your forces.

    As I understand it there were reports that yes, they WERE whipped.

    What you think border patrol and American police officers are great with showing restrain?

    First, they weren't hunted. They were right there in the open, trying to cross the border illegally.

    But since the horses are the big issue when it comes to mode of transportation when dealing with Haitians versus other nationalities, please tell us which mode would be appropriate when dealing with Haitians. How about ATV's? Or maybe motorcycles?
    Since this is the Mexican border, there may be Mexicans and people from Guatemala trying to sneak across. Which mode of transportation would be acceptable in your eyes when dealing with them? Can we go back to horses? How about Camels?

    Also FYI, the Border Patrol has always had a horseback unit:

    I actually saw the video. They weren't whipping the Haitians. But even if they were, so what?

    Sorry...even if they were whipping a human being, so what?

    Would it bother you if it was an American?

    OK. So what name do YOU call being chased by men on horseback?
    Maybe even pick-up trucks? My, the thoughts in your mind about Haitians are very revealing. How about dealing with them in a humane way.Treat others the way you want to be treated. That is the golden rule.

    I feel like if there was an incident of a black man being lynched and dragged from a truck they wouldn't see the historical significance of it because he wasn't hung from a tree.

    Whips, batons, pepper spray, bean bag rounds, tasers--what's the difference other than optics, and the willingness of certain observers to conjure up a racist meme to try to make law enforcement look like the bad guys (unless they're the Capitol police who can be temporarily exploited for political gain when the democrats are in charge)?

    They weren't being chased. They were being prevented from crossing the border. IOW, they were being blocked.

    And what thoughts do you think I'm having about them? I simply asked you about alternate modes of transportation for the Border Patrol agents since the horses they were riding is your chief complaint:
    Oh, and the skin color of the Haitians:
    Those are your own words. Own them.

    Why? Was the guy he grabbed a shotgun from and tried to use it against on a horse?

    Tough to answer my question when there are just SOOO many ways to hurt another human being right?

    Hurt, control, apprehend---take your pick.
    Notice that guns weren't mentioned. That's because the goal was to keep those people from crossing the border. They weren't being shot. They were simply being warded off.

    Yes, it is.
    If it's not ok with you, then let's hear the reason. However, I'll tell you in advance that, "I don't like the way it looks" isn't a good reason.

    Not sure what you meant by that, but whatever.
    Either way, there was no horse involved.
