I've mentioned in a different thread that every Friday afternoon/evening at the bus stop I must wait at so I can go home from work it is what I refer to as "Yell about God" day. I finally remembered to do a little research and have determined that they are from what I can tell, the reverse of the KKK. The group is known as the Israelite Church of GOD in Jesus Christ.
wikipediaThe basic doctrine of the ICGJC is that Blacks are a master race superior to all peoples, and the World was created only for Black Israelites. They preach that God loves only black israelites and that there is no room on this planet for people they deem undesirable, a list which includes Caucasians, East Indians, Homosexuals, Arabs, and Asians.
I was raised catholic, at this point I don't know exactly where I stand, but my religious background screams at me about all kinds of ridiculous BS in the above statements.
Chief among the screaming in my mind is that Christianity teaches tolerance for all human beings so far as I'm aware. I dunno...just had to get this out there somewhere as a sort of sanity check I guess. I'm pretty sure most of the people here are at the most in the same boat as me, whereby I can believe in a God but religion in general is retarded. Many of you seem to be anti-God entirely which is fine, as I said...I don't know exactly where I stand.
