by Stanley Lorencki | March-April 2001

YOUR 'GRACE MATTERS' by Chris Rice ("Is That Racism on Your Shoe?" November-December 2000) was interesting. If Chris Rice is honest and credible, he should marry a black person to prove it.

YOUR 'GRACE MATTERS' by Chris Rice ("Is That Racism on Your Shoe?" November-December 2000) was interesting. If Chris Rice is honest and credible, he should marry a black person to prove it. If he is already married, then their children should be forced to marry black people. These actions will help promote Rice's theory and lend credence to this preposterous philosophy!

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
