Can a person be a born again Christian & be a racist? My wife claims to be born again. She attends church regularly & reads the Bible. But, she's a racist. She hates blacks with a passion. I don't know how many times I have had to listen to her call Obama the n word. It's not only Obama that she directs her venom at. When we were watching televised coverage of Katrina & other recent hurricanes, the hate that she spews at hurricane victims who are black makes my stomach turn. I don't know how she can reconcile this racism & at the same time claim to be a Christian. Didn't Christ teach that racism is wrong? I was not brought up this way. As far as I'm concerned, whether or not you believe in the same political views as another, or a person's way of thinking, that person is still a human being deserving respect, not racist epithets. Opinions needed, please.
