    I think when you are aware and proud of it, it is called racism.

    I would vote for Romney if he paid me, but he'd have to pay me more than he pays his Chinese employees.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    EDIT: How Sandy played out media-wise on the election seems to be summarized in this:

    Until the storm hit the East Coast, I was leaning toward voting for Romney. I'm an old guy who cast his first presidential vote for Harry Truman, and mostly for Democrats who ran in subsequent years. Until this past weekend, I was frankly not thrilled with either of the 2012 candidates.

    I don't like Obama's Chicago pals from his early political years; they just seemed a bit too radical for me. That drew me to Romney, despite the fact that he was born too rich, and seems to have no clue about what it means to be struggling in today's lousy economy.

    Then came Sandy. Obama immediately went to the disaster areas and set positive recovery measures to work. Romney did photo ops of carrying some Campbell soup cans. He still doesn't have a clue, and he lost my vote.

    I'm not surprised. When people are as vehemently against drug legalization as you are, there's usually something like this behind it.

    You realize that this really is pure racism. Culturally the president is as far away from the African-American experience as is possible for any dark skinned person living in America (partially because, ya'know, he's not African-American). Both Romney and Obama were raised by rich white people, attended prep schools, and went to Harvard.

    First off, I don't think she's an ENTP.

    Second, I didn't necessarily take her seriously.

    Third, considering what I have seen of her, it did seem at least plausible.

    Fourth, if that is a plausible position for you, you're not someone who should be joking about it.

    Do you actually have any recollection of her poster history, or should I not be taking you seriously either?

    Do you think that's a God-honouring way to live your life, to stop at recognizing your prejudice?

    With all of the cognitive faculties that God gave you as a gift, so that you would serve the world and build it up in the way that Christ loved the world, how does this complacency figure into your faith?

    27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
    Prejudice is not Christ-like. This is not about Obama but about loving the people of the world as best as we can manage.
    4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
    I see a lack of Christ-like love.

    *Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.
