The definition of racist needs to be clear in this regard. From the religious point of view, we know those are bound to go to hell who don't respect God's will and act against the good judgment. definition of racist says a racist does not show equality in his judgment to a black person only based on his color of skin. God never said to discriminate between people because of color. He treats all equally. This shows a racist doesn't respect God's will and act against the order. Therefore we can say Racist people will go to hell.
God doesnt discriminate, he treats us all like worthless, pitiful, sub-human trash, equally. Given that humanity is not perfect and that god only has himself to blame for that fact, it seems like it would be harsh for him to condemn someone just because they didnt treat the entire human race with such contempt, as he does, but limited their hate to a group of people.
These are some quotes from the bible about racism, and from the look of these, if they don't change they will go to hell. It doesn't matter if the racism is true or not, God expects you to love one another and forgive.
Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”
1 John 2:9
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
For God shows no partiality.
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.
Masters, do the same to them, and stop your threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him.
Assuming hell exists, I don't think they would necessarily go to hell.
Say you're racist. You a rich, white, upper class, racist. But, if you don't act on it, and treat everyone with respect, ignoring how you feel, and no one knows, is it really bad? Have you done anything morally wrong? I think not.
Someone who acts racist, yes, I think they would go to hell. I see many people acting racist, making racist jokes, making minorities (around the world, so white people included there) feel uncomfortable, hurt, or like they're less than someone else. But I personally think that the majority of these people simply don't realise the consequences of their actions, or are apathetic towards them.
These people cause more pain to others than some racists. Therefore, I feel that they are more likely to go to hell than a very nice racist would.
Yes, that's often the case, and that's what I try and do. However, too many times have I seen racist jokes where the person the joke's being made on does not laugh, and feels excluded.
Intentions and effects are most definitely independent variables. If you're careful about the jokes you tell, who you tell them to, how you tell them, and the reactions people give back to you, among other things, yes, they can have no harm. But this is not the case in all instances.
What earns you a ticket to hell and what doesn't can be a bit of a double standard in religious organizations. For example, a Catholic can be excommunicated for helping a child get an abortion, but can remain a member of the church if all he did was impregnate the child.
And the vast majority of Christians will be getting a ticket to hell if a sin on par with the "abomination" of sleeping with the same sex is what earns you that ticket. I thought it was more about accepting your savior or seeking forgiveness than following scripture like a rule book, and, if it isn't, heaven is simply an impossible club to get into because humanity cannot live up to perfect expectations.
Technically I am racist too. I believe race determines some of people's abillities, skills, etc, though I do not discriminate people. So no, I don't think racists are bad and should go to hell.. I believe only racists who apriori disciminate people should go to hell.
Agreed, I feel it has a more negative effect to assume and act as though all races are the same: they aren't. We come from different parts of the world, are raised in different ways in different communities, and have certain genetic differences between races.
As long as you use race as an indicator, rather than a determinator (black people are likely to have larger penises than others, instead of black people have big dicks), I do not think it's racist. If you meet 1000 Americans, and they all exhibit a certain personality, it is a reasonable assumption that this personality is a typical 'American' personality. It's what you do with this information, and the level of critical thought you apply to it, that is often considered racist.
I try to articulate that by calling one method stereotyping and the other racism. Stereotypes are generally stereotypes for a reason. Americans are fat, for example, is a stereotype that has basis in reality. America has a higher obesity rate than most countries. Thinking that because someone is American they must be fat is another matter entirely, and closer to racism. Racism has a tone of unquestionable and non-negotiable prejudice or irrational hate, whereas stereotyping is looking at the figures and concluding trends based on what you see.
This is not to say that stereotyping doesn't have the potential to be every bit as ugly as racism when used in that way, but calling the two similar practices by different names has helped me differentiate between the kind of stereotyping statistics your auto insurance company might use to determine the cost of your insurance, as opposed to the unyielding racist hatred of, say, Nazis or Islamofascists.
