      Because many who identify as Christian, propagate and adhere to political and social views that are racist.

      Now, true Christians do not accept racism or dismiss it. However, because politicians have been successful at marketing their party and ideals as Christian, the association has taken place. Not that many of these folks are actually Christian, they are not. But people associate them with Christianity.

      I get that, but my point was that many other isms fit that bill just as well, yet the focus is always on racism as if it were uniquely offensive.

      You think that's unique to racism?

      To those being oppressed by racism it is a most important ism.

      To those oppressed by racism....

      OK, adding that proviso is a good modification, but I am willing to bet that the people in Venezuela or Syria or Yemen, for example, are feeling oppressed--really oppressed--because of other ideologies or isms. And millions of Americans for some reason other than racism.

      You obviously are determined to suppress the voices or at least minimized the voices of victims of racism. May I ask why is this so important to you?

      Racism is a sin. That is the truth. Other things are also sins but that doesn't mean that racism is somehow cleansed because other things are sins. And if millions suffer because of other "isms" that does not lessen the sinfulness of racism.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Are you replying to my earlier comments, in post#19, for example?.
