I see this term a lot when people want to refer to cultural influences on the West yet it seems pretty stupid. Judeo Christian actually just means Christian, Judaism had very little to do with western culture as for large chunks of western history the Jews were actively persecuted and for all of Western history Jewish people have made up a very small minority.

If any religion is going to be conflated with western culture, it is Christianity, Judaism simply has not been a major part of western culture and still isn't. It also treats Judaism and Christianity as if they are 2 very similar entities as opposed to 2 very different religions.

The term seems pointless and misleading and I don't understand why people insist on using it instead of "Christian", "Western" or more accurately "Secular".

At the end of 2014, by a unanimous vote in a secret meeting of the City Council of tiny Winfield, Alabama, it was declared that “God is the owner of the City of Winfield.”

“I feel like we need to stand up for what is right. Our forefathers said ‘One nation under God’ and we went so far away from that. There are not enough godly people involved in day-to-day decisions.”

Seriously...? Is there no end to the sheer, mind numbing dumbfuckery that the lunatics on the religious right are prepared do? Everyone knows this stuff won't stand up legally and yet they go through with it anyway. What is wrong with these people?

Seriously? How do these people think for one second this will stand up in the Supreme court? The wording will not protect it, it is using the law to establish Mississippi as Christian and use it as a backdoor for further religious laws based on this "recognition" that it is a Christian state.

For the Christian fundies who would defend this, if it is not used to establish Christianity as the state religion then just what purpose does it serve? The law is not there to point out statistics like who is the dominant group. There is nothing subtle with this at all.
A report by the Republican run House intelligence committee found no wrongdoing by the Obama administration and dismissed claims such as the order to stand down, intelligence failures, insufficient security and delaying rescue.

So essentially once again another big Obama failure turns out to be a fabrication of the Republicans.
Yet ANOTHER case of rigging and scandal has occurred to a load of banks in the UK and yet again the banks have been fined but no criminal charges have been brought against the people involved. We have people breaking the law and getting away scot free. The banks don't punish them, they don't get hit in their pocket, they don't go to jail and the cost of the fine just gets offloaded onto the customers. It's quite frankly discraceful and action needs to be taken.

The people involved clear have no morals and will happily screw the system time and time again because there are NO consequences. All the people involved in initially causing the crisis of 2007/2008? No charges. Those involved in every scandal since? No charges. This isn't some 'social justice' thing, this is about individuals who break the law being punished. 

Until we are prepared to bang these individuals up for their actions, we will never see a cleaned up banking system.

Since the thread was closed: I know you're from the UK. And quite frankly you guys have as much of a history of suffering "white" terrorism as the US does, making your complaints about Muslims still bizarre.

The Muslims don't have a monopoly on violent extremists by a long shot.

Yes we've had our experience of white terorrism but we don't now. Also it's beyond terrorism, we didn't have crowd of Irish charging around threatening to kill anyone who was rude about Islam but we have had that with Muslims.

You haven't met our domestic terrorists here in the US. There's quite a few groups here who'd be absolutely happy to kill gays, Hispanics, blacks, women getting abortions, etc. if they thought they could get away with it. Some of them still go for it. There's also our nutjob right-wing militias planning for "race wars" and uprising against the government.

I remember the likes of McVeigh and the Unabomber, and our mass shootings have mainly been by whites, too. To me, this whole "Muslim extremists are way more dangerous than white ones!" is total bull. Maybe we should just deal with the extremists and leave out the prefacing adjectives against others. Especially since it's racist attitudes that fuel many of our domestic terrorists. I guess you're safe from them... if you're white, Christian, and straight!

P.S. Plus, the Muslims here don't get to put Sharia law into effect... but the Christians do their damnedest to put Christian law into effect and have been succeeding lately. You don't have to blow things up to harm people. There's a reason why "Christian Taliban" has been thrown around here as a term lately.

In regards to the thread you made about North Korea, that idiot Wes STILL thinks that you're a racist just for making a James Bond joke and "hurting his feelings". What a baby... Sorry about that :P

Meh I know what the rules are and I know I have a perfectly defensible case. He can go ahead with it because I know nothing will come from it. I'm still not entirely convinced he has, I think it's a bluff to try to provoke me into apologising.
