    So, what's the Christian view on this? Do men who drive like hell go to hell? Can anyone give a bible reference about driving like hell? What's your personal opinion - should they go to hell?

    It's also interesting that someone can "drive like hell". Does that imply that hell is actually driving? And if so, where is it going?

    Don't you get the play on chinese proverbs? It's certainly not making fun of the chinese, but simply uses the excellent chinese method of imparting wisdom, which you somehow missed. Do you need a breakdown of the puns, truths, and non-truths beautifully interwoven in this great humor? Or is your sense of humor limited to fundies, French, and christians?

    Yeah, right. That'll be you as well then. Which stereotype will be next then?

    Ok then, spiritualise on this:

    A report in this week's New Scientist states that fundamentalists (of all religions) generally have more stable marriages than the rest of society, lower rates of depression but a higher incidence of racist views.

    Do the benefit of family stability and mental health justify the racism?

    Thanks Rat, after looking again, I don't see anything derogatory about Chinese. In fact it would be to their credit because the proverbs are true and witty. That is why they are humorous. Maybe it is Arvrk and others with perverted minds who see what we don't.
    Nevertheless, some of the people on this site are like a pack of wolves waiting on prey to pounce on.
    It would be the evil in their own corrupted hearts and minds that try to turn humor into something else.
    And Kirk, you surprised me. You, I thought were wiser than to follow the pack like that.

    Ok, let's get spiritual...

    Christianity condemns racism (love one another, love your neighbour as yourself, what you do to the least in your eyes you have done to Me, etc and so forth).

    However, evolution teaches that some creatures are less evolved than others and led to the misconception that some races are better than others. Hitler used this in his removal of the Jews (whom he thought to be "almost ape"😉 and many Aboriginies were killed and their skulls sent for "Scientific research" as well as the infamous and heartbreaking story of the Pigmy who was taken from his wife and kids and put in a zoo as a missing link. We now know that the very term "race" is redundant as the genetic difference between the races is as insignificant as two people of the same race.

    If a Christian is a racist, he needs to reconsider his religion and world-view because he's living in sin.

    I have plenty family stability and (although David C, Mouldy Crow, Frogstomp and others may disagree) I am mentally healthy despite not being a racist. And I'm not quite a fundee either...
