  1. The Tweet's text is: A theological question: Is it racist to post this image? Against whom?
  2. Isn't it visible in the post? It is on my phone/laptop. Is this visible?
  3. I don't know if it is a theological question but the stereotypes, biases, presumptions, politics, sociology and much else that could be pulled from and put into this image are legion. I know I'm long winded but I suspect entire PhDs could be written on it from multiple points of view.

I still shudder to think of the inhumanity, violence and destruction that mobilises an entire society to war. It is a very thin si
  8. Language has consequences. Try to fit too much meaning into words and they actually loses meaning - I feel this thread is doing this with the phrase concentration camp. Life is precious and to arbitrarily imprison is a big deal ... to arbitrarily kill a huge deal.
