2. yeh they've reformulated protestant theology..

 

..in such a way that white americans are somehow the 'chosen people'. even when it's not explicit in the dogma, like it is with this vile bunch, the dog-whistles are often there and sometimes pop up in the oddest places.

i've had liberal new agers tell me that aliens put each race on each continent, and didn't understand why i was offended by their childish woo.

it runs the gamut. some people use religion and it's mercurial moralism to justify their in-group, others like to use it to condemn the out-group. some do both.
