    Are you black?

    It seems that your posts so far have a stereotypical slant.

    Peace Brotha-

    I see that you have been, so far, very interested in Our Black Women (from some of your previous posts)...Care to elaborate on that?

    One interesting point is that We are four times as likely to be in a program for substance abuse.

    Makes me wonder if religion actually is "an opiate of the People".

    We go to service, pay the pull-pit (Paul), then go to the dopeman (Peter) to get another fix.

    The white church can't learn anything from the black church at all. Since the church is "actually the people" and not a building itself, there is nothing that they can learn from us regarding that subject. Since over 90% of them have a calcified penial gland and as such can not touch base with their own spirituality or the energies of the univese in order to manifest true "humanity," they simply can not learn what they can not touch base with inside themselves.

    If they can not touch base with it within themselves they can not and will not manifest it outside of themselves in a world reality. Their inability to touch base and learn is the reason that they can exist and do things that are so one sided. Example: They will produce or do something because it makes good economical sense to do so, while at the same time disregarding the social, political, mental and spiritual impact of it that may be negative. The making of the nuclear bomb is an excellent example. All they saw was their own protection and superiority, while ignoring the fact that the very making of it would produce chemicals that they could not destroy. As such, they made an advancement that at the same time produced negatives that outweighed their advancement and survival all the way around.

    This example carries over into all fields of existence as it regards them. They therefore can not learn anything from the black church at all, for the black church is simply a reflection of our people and our spirituality, however warped or off centered it may be. Being warped or off centered is a lot different than not being able to manifest it all all...which is where white people sit in regards to their existence and actions.
