Best-Selling Devotional Has Prayer to 'Help Me to Hate White People'

Quote:Dear God,

Please help me to hate white people. Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively. I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.

This can't be a Christian publication.

What part of "Love thy neighbor" is hard for these morons to understand?

Well, at least some 'Catholics' think the author is a Christian. From the website of the Collegeville Institute, which defines itself as, 'a place of scholarship, worship, dialogue, and community immersed in the Benedictine rhythm of work and prayer':

Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes is a clinical psychologist, public theologian, and minister whose work integrates healing, justice, and reconciliation. She serves as Associate Professor of Practical Theology at the Mercer University McAfee School of Theology and utilizes her interdisciplinary background to write, speak, and teach about self-care, racial and gender justice, and reconciliation. She is the author of I Bring the Voices of My People: A Womanist Vision for Racial Reconciliation and Too Heavy a Yoke: Black Women and the Burden of Strength. She facilitated the Writing for Mystic Activists writing workshop for the Collegeville Institute in 2019 and will be a short-term Resident Scholar in spring 2020.

Ah, a segue

Hill Museum - Manuscript Library

<i>What's inside the manuscripts HMML is preserving?</i> 
-Fr. Columba Stewart OSB


<i>The Manuscripts of Timbuktu</i>



The manuscript thing is good, (back when people wrote soberly), bucause once the typewriter became prevalent people started writing all sorts of strange things while under the influence of drink and drugs - the so called Lost Generation and their Writer Colonies - (most people's handwriting is illegible when drunk) Anyway then they hooked the typewriter up to the TV and spawned a whole 'nother Lost Generation.

They should replace it with the prayer of St. Francis:


Quote:Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.

Funny how liberal Christianity's "brotherhood of all men" and "universal love" have morphed over the decades into something where hate for one's enemies is actually to be sought after from God Himself.  I suppose, when one seeks salvation in this world, and not Heaven, it is far more tempting to give into hatred for those getting in the way of your earthly salvation.  And liberal Christianity is very big on downplaying an actual afterlife, or any focus on one, in favor of saving the world now.

Perhaps liberal Christianity is not Christianity at all:

So it is obvious that the guy downstairs suckered another group into hatred.
