  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.

    Should there be an equal number of immigrants to
    the U.S. who are white and who are people of color?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Any particular shade you have in mind? I'm not sure how it would work. Would you have coloured paddles you hold up against the skin to see if it matches?

    Are you speaking retroactively (say from 1776) ... or only from this point on ... ?

    Well, white people comprise 61.6% of the population. If love365 wants equity from this point on then you'll have to get rid of 11.6% to balance things up. A lottery maybe? I can see Mexico building a wall themselves to keep them out. Maybe Canada will take a few?

    Only about 10 percent of immigrants are white.
    This will cause an imbalance at some point in the future.

    Fox News seemed concerned about it.

    I assume you mean "legal immigrants" so are you suggesting that if not enough white people are applying for immigration from other countries we should stop "people of color" from applying beyond that point??

    One article says "In 2020, non-Hispanic white people, hereafter called whites, are still the majority race in the U.S., representing 59.7% of the U.S. population"

    Are you saying we should require that 59.7% of immigrants be white and the rest "people of color"???

    Why is it important to have some sort of skin color balance? Skin color quotas is a very disturbing concept.

    White people vs people of color? What does that mean? White is just as much of a color as black, brown, or anything else; so by what logic are white people not people of color?

    Part of America’s power and influence is its connections to Europe.

    That's crazy! What's wrong about coloured people? It's a lot more important that people can speak english and can find work to support themselves and make a valid contribution to the economy. It's not good that too many settle all in one location, as this won't help them to integrate and feel part of the country which they have come to live in.

    It would make sense to be able to check the immigrants for covid and quarrantee them before a second test and to control allocations of those moving to different locations to ensure a balanced distribution. After a year, or two these people would be free to move wherever they wish. America would not cope well, if the rate of people arriving was excessive, so there would probably need to be a way of managing all of this.

    Staging camps with comfortable prefab buildings and facilities for people to learn there choice of basic subjects to give them the best chance of suceeding, whe they move into the cummunity, would also be beneficial to these people. Who's to say that in the longer term, that this might not be beneficial to the American economy and helpful to economic recovery.

    How does one define "a person of color"? There is no such thing as a "white" person, unless by that one means an albino.

    Peoples colour does not determine anything. Why does it matter?

    I think we should privilege immigrants who are committed to American ideals, you know - the good ideals we stomped on so often in our own history, regardless of skin color.

    My German great-grandparents immigrated into a small German speaking farming community in Iowa. My grandfather was bilingual in German and English His wife and my Finnish grandmother would not have been allowed in. Yet he made a contribution to the economy that you probably appreciate each winter, the automobile defroster

    I can't think of much to say about this, so let me just sum up my feelings by finding an appropriate internet cat picture.

    Okay, here's one:

    Most white people who are not American live in countries with national health care--IOW, just as comfortable as America, if not more so. Unless they have specific personal reasons to immigrate (such as family members) why would they?

    Democrats keep telling us how wonderful Europe is,
    in every way.

    We should also have connections to other countries
    and other parts of the world.
