|Christianity, candidates, culture, and balls!|
I thought they were all Christian or grew up in Christian families. Am I wrong to believe so?
Philosophically we can be critical of religion as its structure and organization exerts political power that is not democratic.
Politically we should be critical of the Christian religion alone as it is the influential force of the control of 95% of the earth's resources, and about 60% of the population, directly or indirectly.
A common misconception is the culture of the Christian religion which is not universal. A recent comment by a fellow humanist who grew up in the Jewish religion, pointed out that it is Christian churches that have this intolerance to laughter, children voices, running and playing....! Not really true, it is the culture of Anglo Saxon Christians that have this intolerance, not Christians in general. The Mediterranean and Latin American Christians are not as uptight and constipated about it. It is the culture of Anglos and Germans that is prevalent in this society.
I'm not defending Med. Christians in any way, I'm pointing out the difference between culture and religion and although there are significant influences the sources of those influences are not common.
So back to the topic, who is it that is not influenced by Anglo Saxon Christian upbringing from those people? The black guy right? Hmmm... I have this feeling that he ahs spent the majority of his life trying to escape this identity problem, so I'll go for a deeper difference among them.
Which candidate doesn't have balls?
