It is not how the world rates us that matters. It is how God rates us.
Well, there you have it, friends. Which is it? Is Poche an imbecile; incapable of following the logical course of a thread he himself is participating in, or is he an intellectually dishonest rhetorician hiding behind false piety and folksy simplicity?
Poche, in the name of Christian Charity, which you believe this subject touches upon, please tell us which, if any, of the following constitutes "racism:"
Desiring to live and work among members of one's own race and not among members of others.
Affirming that there are inherent differences of average intelligence among the races.
Support for state legislated prohibitions of miscegenation.
Belief in the "Curse of Ham" and that sub-Saharan Africans are the subjects of that curse.
Holding personal prejudices that compel us to act in a certain way with members of another race, based on personal experience with other members of that race and / or knowledge of statistics about that race (e.g. crossing the street when approached by a group of negro youths).
Now, clearly, the world rates all of the above as "racist." How ought a Catholic rate it?
Please do not simply post the same passage from Mit Brennender Sorge
