My panties don't get bunched. I actually find it amusing the lengths some will go to.

And I don't appreciate your give me a fucking break or your condescending panties in a wad comments. You don't agree with me, fine. Be civil. I have never been rude or condescending or disrespectful to anyone here, ever. Even if they are acting like dicks.

Although there are good signs like Blexit, and Jexit...the fact remains that 80+% of college educated young people and a high percentage of non college are very liberal. That's what they are taught. I am 73 years old and saw it first hand in college. Not only that but I am a serious student of late 19th and early 20th Century American history. It is easy to see why we are where we are.

Very little hope that the trend will change. Trump delayed it by a number of years though.

So really, for me, I will be slobbering in my wheelchair by that time. It is just sad to see the direction.

Folks like RD will be oblivious to it and keep spouting the same stuff as a forum warrior. To stay sane the rest of us can just watch it happen. I spend pretty much time training and being trained pistol. It helps

I do. We don't worship Easter, we worship God. Whether we are doing that on Easter, Christmas, or Groundhog day makes not a lick of difference.

This would be obvious to most folks I imagine, but apparently society has taken a holiday from common sense.
Uh, I think you're being a little too literal there. I also think you know this.

You're usually well above this, Helena. What gives?

Questioning his opinion yet not once have you ever questioned your appreciative pal.

That's awfully odd.

I'm not questioning his *opinion*, I'm questioning his *interpretation* of what was said.

The local Catholic church refers to holiday services as "<holiday> worship" quite regularly.

As such, attendees would rightly be called <holiday> worshippers, in this case, Easter. Trying to spin that as a claim they are worshipping the holiday itself, and not the reason behind the holiday is far beyond ridiculous and pedantic, IMO.

Take a second and Google 'Easter Worshippers' and tell me how far back this term/group goes.

Thanks.

Oh please, spare me.

You have one ex-military guy who says Democrats are evil and is sorry he defended the country for people like them.

But claiming someone has their panties in a bunch is over the line. Usually when I say that to someone it's in jest.

You're going out of your way to stand by a phrase that's literally only hours old, I'll give you that.
Must be a new progressive thing or something. Avoid a word by making up a new phrase.

When you can name another religion, besides Christians, that celebrate Easter, this stupid argument will actually matter.

Easter is the pagan goddess of the Sidonians btw.

So unless there was a bunch of Sidonians in Sri Lanka celebrating their pagan goddess, we can all safely equate "Easter worshippers" to Christians, unless you want to be either obtuse or irrational, take your pick.

Right so why would they call them Easter celebrators kinda like illegal immigrants are undocumented or janitor calling himself a custodial engineer. It's a way of disassociation and slanting the narrative. Apply it equally to muslims and other groups or dont do it at all.

Slanting the narrative?

The only people slanting the narrative are the ones more bent out of shape over "Easter worshippers" than the fact over 200 people were killed in a bombings.

Oh no, there's me, slanting the narrative, I called them "people".

Oh youre right proceed. Now it's all clear. The point is the left only care about the dead people that fit their narrative, hence dont really care at all. White supremacists evil's deeds vs some people did some stuff.
