From the OP:
Of all the ridiculous things to say. I mean, why practice a religion if it isn't going to affect your judgment? My religious beliefs form the core of who I am and how I see the world. All my judgment is informed by my religious beliefs.
Oh, my mistake. I'd better keep that part of myself segregated from every other part, and out of the public square.
Religious beliefs were coloring his judgement, indeed! I should hope so.

Forward the stuggle, etc, ad nauseum.
From what I've seen. Portions of Roxborough, which I am far less familiar with, look the same.
I'm no expert or really knowledgeable on architecture, but I like my city to like urban, I love rowhomes, close in Georgian and Federal architecture, Victorian.
I don't know the statistics myself...I'd just be awfully surprised if a known liberal area didn't have less guns.
Nobody's telling you to hide your religious beliefs. Hide them if you want, don't hide them if you want. But be prepared that if you get up on some pedestal and trumpet them loudly, people are going to react, and you may not like all of what they have to say.
The problem with Satullo is not his religious beliefs per se, but his pompous self-righteous attitude (jeez, never seen THAT in religious people before...) and needless indictment of an entire community.
What amuses me is: most of the white people in Mt Airy are liberal....yet they seem to want to stay there and not live in other parts of the city.
What's wrong with North Philly? Southwest Philly? Don't those areas need diversity too?
So, what do you mean about NE Philly being "ghetto" in 15 years? What makes you say that? What would make it "ghetto" in your eyes?

They have a selfish view on the world and think that theyir way is the only way.
NPD: An all-pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), need for admiration or adulation and lack of empathy, usually beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts. Five (or more) of the following criteria must be met:
Feels grandiose and self-important (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents to the point of lying, demands to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements)
Is obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence, unequalled brilliance (the cerebral narcissist), bodily beauty or sexual performance (the somatic narcissist), or ideal, everlasting, all-conquering love or passion
Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions)
Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation - or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (narcissistic supply)
Feels entitled. Expects unreasonable or special and favorable priority treatment. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her expectations
Is "interpersonally exploitative", i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends
Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with or acknowledge the feelings and needs of others
Constantly envious of others or believes that they feel the same about him or her
Arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes coupled with rage when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted
Re. the second sentence. What makes you think that there are no White people living in those sections of the city?
Re. the rest of your post all you have to do is hang out in the NE section of this site and get your answer.
But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. Matthew 12:25 (New King James Version)
Blue States TAKE the LEAST SOCIAL SERVICE MONEY, but PAY THE MOST INTO THE SYSTEM.
Yet the RED CONSERVATIVES wanna bitch the most about Healthcare reform!
They really do not care about anyone but themselves! Ultimate NARCISSISTS!
50,000 people die a year in this country from LACK OF HEALTHCARE.
A STRONG HEALTHY PEOPLE makes a STRONG HEALTHY COUNTRY.
They want all these babies to be born to women that dont want them yet wont adopt any of them or help pay for healthcare for them. NARCISSISTS!
The people living in the Hollers of Appalachia eating Ketchup on Spaghetti for dinner and rotting out their teeth with Mountain Dew STILL CRY OUT "I dont wanna pay for other peoples healthcare" bitterly clinging to their guns and religion all while waving their Palin in 2012 flags...
And they dont want Gays to get married all while RED STATES have the HIGHEST DIVORCE RATES and TEEN PREGNANCIES!
PS Republican values create child molesters <<Love those Conservative "FAMILY VALUES"
Why are white Appalachians fair game for stereotypical comments and insults? Do you have any idea how elitist and snobbish that sounds?
Do you even care?
Oh, and btw did you know many if not most Appalachians are Democrats? How do you think Byrd got elected to represent many of them in WV?
I have met and worked with people from Appalachia, and they are some of kindest, most humble, devout people. What you are saying is based on urban, elitist stereotypes and no firsthand experience with those poor but proud people.
SHAME on you.
Why not try educating yourself on these people before you let loose with the racist, bigoted stereotypes?
