A serious question for the posters on here....
« on: June 30, 2019, 02:05:34 PM »
 Do you feel that we (black americans) have too many churches in our communities?


What are your thoughts?

A serious question for the author of the thread.  With all the killings, rapes, assaults, gangs, drug dealers, homeless people, liquor stores, predatory lenders, renegade police officers, unemployment/low wage jobs, and unwed pregnancies is being concerned with the number of churches really a top priority we should have???? :shrug:

Okay. Where do most of these practices take place? I feel, we should teach our children better economics rules than forcing them to church.

Que82, no disrespect to you. But, we just have too many.

Not clear on what that means. :shrug:  Each parent has a responsibility to teach their children as they see fit.  You nor I have a right to tell a parent what they should teach their children.  How many churches is enough????  But by you response It appears you are not in favor of any which is also your right.

And you are stupid as usual.  It might be more productive for you to participate in the debate than to try and police me. ::)

How does an abundance of churches hurt the Black community.  We can teach our children better economics rules and still have a lot of churches. Having trouble understanding how having an abundance of churches is related to not teaching children economics.  :shrug:

I don't force my religious beliefs on other people because I don't have a heaven or hell to put you in, but I will say teaching them who God is will lead them to better choices in life and better prosperity than just teaching them to make money any day.

It's not the quantity of churches.  It's the quality of churches.

My late uncle used to ask this question when he spoke at other churches. If this closed it's doors today would it be missed by the local community.

A disjointed question if there ever was one.

Agree with Que82, clearly an axe to grind against religion.

I still think this poster is y04185

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
