Can Christians Be Nationalists? Part 11: Aren’t We Supposed To Treat Others the Same Way We Would Like To Be Treated?

Having established that there is nothing unchristian about recognizing racial differences, we now come to the question of how to apply this knowledge of racial reality.

Once again, let us consider a hypothetical situation where race is not a factor. Imagine an all white city. In this city there is a public bus service, and the city government has decided that mentally disabled individuals should not be allowed to become bus drivers. But in this city, there is a group of misled Christians who have declared that because God requires us to love the mentally disabled, the mentally disabled should be given equal opportunity. Convinced by this argument, the city government starts employing the mentally disabled as bus drivers. The buses no longer run on time, and the number of traffic accidents increases, resulting in many deaths and injuries.

The reader might object that this scenario is ridiculous, but it is exactly the same as the situation we currently face. When black and brown people move into a community, crime goes up and the quality of public services goes down. Having a black neighborhood in your city means that more people will be raped and murdered, and that many public services will become unusable. These are empirical facts. Debating about why black and brown people act this way is beside the point. It would be like debating the causes of mental disability, as if the cause of this disability could have some bearing on whether or not to entrust the mentally disabled with important responsibilities. Even if there potentially could be a cure for mental disability, until that cure is found, it would be criminally negligent to put the mentally disabled in a position where they could harm innocent people.

When you lend your support to the demands for more diversity and more integration, you must realize that the policies you are promoting will result in death and misery for innocent people. This is far from Christian love. And what is is even worse, this lack of compassion for our fellow man is almost always accompanied by the grossest hypocrisy since many Christians who promote diversity are content to impose diversity on others while they themselves live safely in mostly white communities.
To illustrate this point, imagine that your sixteen-year-old daughter has to walk home by herself at night. She has two options, to walk through a neighborhood that is safe, or to walk through a neighborhood that is heavily “diverse.” Which path home would you suggest to her? If you would tell her to take the safe route, consider that when you demand more “diversity,” you are ensuring that some poor white family will be trapped in a situation where there is no safe route home for their daughter. Their entire city has become “diverse,” and every street has become dangerous. When you promote “diversity,” you are doing to a White family what you would never do to your own. You are doing unto others what you would never do unto yourself.

As for the treatment of non-whites, we must understand that there are limitations on the principle that we are to treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated. For example, no one would want to be in jail, but that does not mean we let every criminal go free; and no one would want his city to be bombed, but that does not mean we must never go to war. Clearly it is our duty to preserve justice and to promote the common good of our nation and of all mankind. It is equally clear that the unhealthy desires of those who are in rebellion to God and His created order should not be indulged.

All social policy that starts from the false premise of racial equality only brings more pain and suffering to all parties involved. If we really want to help blacks and other non-whites we must honestly confront the root of their problems. The “help” that has been given them over the last 50 years has done much more harm than good. The most loving thing we can do when dealing with blacks is to recognize their racial limitations and to shape policy based on this reality. It is not loving to put a mentally handicapped child in a classroom full of advanced students and expect him to perform like his peers. The decision to “segregate” mentally handicapped children into separate classes where their needs can be met is not motivated by “hate.” The truth of racial differences must be the starting point for all racial policy and for all attempts at racial reconciliation. If we build on the sandy foundation of the Utopian daydream of total racial equality, then we will only reap more sorrow.

    My Kinist beliefs push my fingers on the keyboard.

    One crucial difference I would postulate in your introductory comparison is that the white mentally disabled belongs with us and to us, as he/she is from us. He/she is one of our people and thus, a part of our community and nation. His/her burdens and blessings are to be shared amongst us. Our kind (as does each kind) consists of many different qualities and all these will find a place in our lands to provide what God willed them to offer. Even the best bus driver, if black or brown, should still not drive the buses for us but rather drive a bus for his people in their lands. The blacks and browns are not our people. They did not come from us but to us. We did not seek them but they have invaded our community by leaving their own. We have no responsibility for them and share no features with them. We our not obligated to do anything for and with them other than what God commands us in His Laws regarding strangers travelling through our lands.

    To your latter example I say this; white peoples, as all peoples, have their elements of criminality (not to the same extent and degree obviously). I believe that all white peoples should hold-back, handle and house their own indigenous criminality while equally, the black peoples should hold-back, handle and house theirs (good luck!).

    Scripture can be used as a weapon as Satan often has. Out of context it is trivial or a banal
    platitude; yet it can be lethal to those most vulnerable.

    I appreciate use of the simile, “mentally disabled ” as a euphemism for sociopathic, since most of the new “American” qualifies for it today . But even if they are not it does not promote necessary homogeneity nor responsibility and consequent subordination to an inveterate citizen . But this is anathema to “law makers” since it preordains a mentality for discrimination and God forbid— law, which of course is the original sin.

    Someone once said that, there is nothing worse than someone or something out of their place. This must have originated from a time or era ,when there was order and law , proscribed or intrinsic It also suggests classes and acknowledgement of inequality . But necessary discrimination for this has been eroded through the constant indoctrination , education if you will, that there must be no such laws nor justifiable reason for them.

    Apparently , the churches have forgotten the admonition , ” test the spirit” .We must not forget nor strive to discover from what source this ideology comes and learn what their true motives are. But I think there is legislation against such liberties.
