I also have a general interest blog, Reason & Society.

The religiosity of (Black) women is a good topic for the discussion board. Yes, the black family was subject to a distorted family structure due to slavery and Jim Crow, but are black women so different from other women? Seems to me that the woman is the guardian of home and hearth and the most conservative values of every culture. I find it curious and perverse that in popular culture--I'm thinking of sitcoms and adult cartoons--the man is always portrayed as selfish, boorish, bigoted and conservative, while the woman is tolerant, liberal, and open-minded. I don't find this to be the case in reality.

The slave mother had to guide the slave child because the slave father could not be a real father. It then seemed safer for her to teach her children anything that would keep them alive. This to me is the reason why the black woman is so religious. She had the responsibility to transcend masters oppressive beliefs to her offsprings.

Keith said scrong. Hehe. Sorry.

Tell me about it. I have a family of "scrong Black women" that eat at my ASS NERVE (lol) with this mess. It turns my stomach when they praise Jesus and 'claim' their 'God-given' right to prosperity while they struggle in life due to just plain 'ole IGNORANCE.

It is disgusting at times, when people refuse to look beyond the end of their nose. They are all unknowing athiests, they just reject one less god.
Comment by Jean on May 18, 2009 at 2:22am
Man I'm truly disgusted by the people (of all races) who cannot see through religion.

Welcome, Blind Dog. You look mighty familiar, but then, I guess you wouldn't know that.

Great to see this group. Black free thought needs to be spread a lot more.

I am talking about conspiracies that exist. Astrotheology and the mason craft.. I am not a fascist, I think all people should be treated equally. People immediately run to "oh look, more CT paranoia BS" thanks to the media. Just remember that if they made a movie about it, its probably just make believe guys :) You want to talk about fascism, your going to pop another forum discouraging people from this sort of information?
Im done debating this with you. I will continue to show this to other people, and I will continue to hear discouragement from people(s) like you, but its not going to stop or discourage me in anyway. The Zeitgeist movement and the Venus Project are very important for people to atleast know about. Let them dispute it themselves.

I see I'm going to have to start a new thread on this subject. Too many coincidences, occult conspiracy theories--this is the very stuff of superstitious thinking, which in the modern world is the royal road to fascism. I've dealt with this in a couple of my discussion threads in this group. We need to learn to distinguish rational investigation into the conspiracies that have actually existed from crypto-fascist occultist paranoia. This is not BlackPlanet.com; we should demand a higher standard.
