Also for your previous post.

Firstly, it amazes me how you can find out so much about my age, gender, etc. Conservatives must be really powerful, what with having ESP and all. But they're still dumb.

Secondly, there are Muslim Filipinos, so it is possible to be both. However, I'm a Catholic Filipino. Note that my being a Christian does not mean that I am a white-worshiper who admires the West, it does not mean that I will let the West just take over this country. I don't think Christianity is a "Western" religion or something Western civilization can claim as part of its culture. One, because Western Christians do not always live up to the standards of the religion they claim to represent so much, even as they try to convert non-Westerners to that religion and condemn them for being "un-Christian". Two, because Christianity did not originate in Europe but in Israel, which is part of the Middle East. Jesus was not white, most people think he was Jewish, a few think he was African, but no one thinks he was white. And three, because Jesus Himself said he came to save the whole world, not just Westerners.

Lastly, it is also strange how you would lump communism and fascism together. If they were "cousins", why did they despise each other so much? On further examination, though, it is good for right-wing capitalist conservatives such as yourself to associate fascism with communsm, thereby disassociating yourself from such an unsavory ideology. Afetr all, no conservative alive today (well okay, maybe some) would ever admit to having some fascist beliefs, because that would seriously damage their reputation and credibility. I think, though, that many of you, in your heart of hearts, really agree with fascist ideas. Only you can't admit that, because that would destroy everything for you.
