Defending my group

According to the Fair Housing Law, a real estate agent or lending agent cannot show any discrimination or favoritism towards any one group of people. We all know that we are talking about groupings of people by sex, religion, sexual orientation, and age. That is the law.

After last weeks big blowup, I decided to go back through lots of old blogs that I had commented on to see just what types of names that I and other Christians had been called. I made copies of both the comments and the name of the person who made the comments. Lots of derogatory comments have been made about us as a group. There are definite signs of discrimination by both real estate agents and lending agents on this site. I found over 100 comments that basically stated that Christians are stupid and believe something that is foolish. I found so many comments calling us names that I stopped copying all of them.

The funny thing, at least to me, is that most of the comments are being made by people who claim to be open minded. They like to tell us how narrow minded we are while at the same time they remind us how stupid our religious beliefs are. Funny in a way, but also against the law. Ha Ha.

The purpose of this blog is not to say that we all need to start telling "mommy and daddy" that someone is being mean to us. My purpose is to show that some groups, who are constantly under attack, are not into stifling speech that may harm them. We are not afraid of hate speech directed our way. Instead, we just try to fight back with our blogs and comments.

Are we as a nation that damn sensitive? Rachel Ray wears a scarf that looks a bit like what Muslim terror symapthizers might wear, and holy you know what breaks out. I guess that she was wearing it in a commercial for Dunkin Donuts and the company… more
