Just to play devil's advocate, my wife's previous dog absolutely lost her shit around black people. Not just overly aggressive barking, but baring her teeth, making Cujo look like a kitten type evil. She was a rescue so who knows went on before my wife got her, but it's apparently a real thing.

Of course, in the case above, instead of advertising it and sounding like a racist douche, just lock the dog up when the maid is there.

I don't think this is particularly unusual. My mother had a dog that didn't like dark-skinned people, both African-Americans and Latinos, and would go crazy whenever she saw one. (The dog, not my mother.) I've had quite a few people tell me they've had similar experiences with their dogs.

It was really kind of awkward, because I'd be sitting in the car with that dog, and she wouldn't do anything until a black person walked by, then she'd start barking and lunging at the window.

I googled that a while back, and couldn't find a satisfying explanation as to why some dogs are racist.

I read that it has to do with dogs color blindness and visual recognition but the catholic preacher just sounds like an asshole

Lol at "her role in the church". That talk should have been first to explain all the others, and he can just read from 1st Corinthians :

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Religion: men telling women what to do. And so many women keep falling for it.

Yeah, it's the rainbow promise! God will never again murder the whole planet via flood. He'll have to come up with something new next time he's disappointed in everyone.

The whole world will not be flooded by climate change. That's silly. If the sea level rises 500 feet, the bible belt will wash away but the Mormons in Utah will be fine.

I assume similar to Christrian bands and musicians. “Wholesome”. No dirty language. Etc.

Yeah, Christian comedy has been a thing for a long time. I remember when I was a kid one of my cousins had some records of a Southern comedian named Jerry Clower who was fairly popular among Southern Christians and the country music crowd in the 70s and 80s. His act was 'clean' and while it wasn't always about Christianity or God, that was still a recurring theme in his stories. His storytelling style was very similar to many Southern Baptist preachers I heard growing up.
