Default Re: Thanksgiving

I believe that Religion and Politics should not be discussed at the Thanksgiving table. Just a reminder to keep the pushing of any agendas like: religious, cultural, gender orientation, race or political, out of 6066GMCCLUB...... (and possibly dinner ). You will always offend otherwise. Everyone should know that by now. "Happy Thanksgiving" was enough to express good wishes to members. Like everyone else did.

Have a good one Dave and Lewis.

AZken, Thank you for schooling me on your opinion. I will be sure and check with you before posting anything again. I made the mistake of thinking general discussion meant just that. Please forgive me I am not up on what is politically correct and will pass your test. Your humble servant Dave

If you think that what Lewis posted is general discussion, you do need schooling. It's not a political correctness issue. It's way deeper than that. I tried to explain it but you are stuck in a rut. Post anything you want. But don't be surprised if sometimes there are other perspectives. You are the one who doubled down.

Oh I get it and would explain it to you if I thought it was productive. We all have free will to believe what we want. I wish you well in whatever your beliefs are. I'm not in a rut, I'm sitting in my recliner with a full belly. Tomorrow I'm going to cling to my God & Guns and start getting used to saying Merry Christmas. Sincerely, Dave. Ps you are the one who started this and I will always double down on truth. I am done.

I was going to stay out of this one, but feel the need to say. Is thanking God against the rules here on these boards? If so, we need to know it. If not, I'll say what I have said on other boards when the need arises. If someone doesn't like what we are talking about, just don't click on it.

I hope someone out there gets what I'm saying about a specific post, before more words are put in my mouth and the subject is changed to not thanking God, God and Guns and saying Merry Christmas. This fake news stuff won't get it boys. Nice try. I said nothing about you, or to you, Bill. There is no "we" and us and them. I click where I want to click.

You obviously reacted when it became Religious for some reason.

I'm not putting ANY words in your mouth.

Yes there is. There is "Us" Christians and then there is another who is reacting to it.

Sure you can. It is your right to click to where you want to click. But don't expect it to be the way "you" want to be without some resistance if others have different beliefs.

One of my favorite sayings: Live and Let Live.

But I'll be danged if i'm going to jump on any American for expressing their thankfulness grounded in our Christian roots. The country could use 1000% more Jesus and a lot less back-biting. We used to be so good when 90% of the country was practicing Christian. Look at us now! Breaks my heart to see what we had then vs. where we're at now.

And to top it off I think PC nonsense like that is making it so much worse by preventing us from talking to each other at all. Nothing fills that hole in your soul like Jesus. You can try to fill it with anger, money, drugs, booze, or women. It never works long term.

Ok I get it now. My bad. We are a Christian group and we bash and insult all others. We decide who is Christian and who is not. We denigrate their spiritual beings with hateful names. We tell people they have a hole in their souls and somehow women are used to fill it, but they are just as worthless as drugs and booze. We defend anyone who wants to preach an interpretation to us on the back side of saying Happy Thanksgiving as long as they invoke Jesus. If you try and explain that pushing agendas is offensive to some, we persecute them into hades. You are all making my point better than I ever could. Bless us all.
