• Welcome to Christian Forums
  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.

    This Forum is a place for respectful discussion and debate of political issues, by Roman Catholics, in the context of the Roman Catholic Faith.


    There are genuine racists out there. By that I mean people who sinfully disfavor other human beings because of their racial or ethnic background, to the point of treating them unjustly. That latter part is key. You’re not being a racist by any rational standard if ethnic preferences direct whom you date. Nor even if they play an unconscious part in the social circles you form.

    Without being exclusive, people of each major ethnic group in America tend to “cluster” together. That’s harmless, as long as everyone abides by a common standard of justice preached by the Church and enforced by the State. If you’re going to condemn that, you must denounce Italian-American clubs. And Chinese cultural centers. And historically black churches. Nobody has a presumptive right to be your close friend, boyfriend, or paisano. That’s not how humanity works. And where there’s no injustice, we have no grounds to condemn people.

    But Pointing Fingers Is Fun. And Profitable!
