  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.

Now that we have an Indo-American Vice President this is going to have to be changed...

    I assume it's about the misnaming of the original inhabitants of the USA as Indians. Last time I checked they have nothing to do with India. Unlike the Vice president who is descended from a citizen from India.

    Of course, 'India' isn't actually an Indian word either. It comes from the Sindhu River, which the Persians called Hindu, then the Greeks called the river Indos, based on the Persian, and the land beyond it they called India.

    We don't always call people what they call themselves. We sometimes even use a name that a completely different group use for themselves.

    For example, we call the people of the Netherlands, 'Dutch', which comes from 'Deutsch', which is the German for 'German'.

    I'm not making an argument here. I just find it all interesting.

    Agreed. And in regard to the OP her ancestry would have not impact this law anyway. It is just an older law using outdated language.
