So you don't care about civil rights? That includes your rights, you know.

Cut the nose off to spite the face is usually the operative logic.

White Christians. Drinking Beverage

Rich white Christians, and only if they're the "true" Christians as to be defined.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Rich white Christian males, although you might be able to fake the Christian part (Trump is a prime example of this). No getting around the other three, though.

It is a little weird, but it's in the Bible (in the book of Wisdom, not surprisingly). Wisdom is characterized as a person -- who was there when God made the world. So they're not making it up. That weird shit is in the Bible. When I used to go to Catholic Mass, they would read from that book occasionally.

Just to correct the error I made above, this bit about Wisdom personified being there at the creation is not from the book of Wisdom -- it's from the book of Proverbs (specifically, Proverbs 8:22-30), which is in all Christian Bibles, not just Catholic ones. I discovered this by noticing a reference to same at the beginning of Book VII of Milton's Paradise Lost (and Milton was certainly no Catholic!), and checking out the relevant footnote.

So it's definitely not a Catholic-specific thing.
