Gold Horse, what happened to you has happened quite a bit lately. Not sure why but it has. When I joined about
a year ago, the kind of debate(used loosely) that your original post started was rarely ever seen. But lately it has unfortunately become fairly common. Maybe it's the time of year. Maybe it's the fact that there is a group here that is staying longer than most and they are beginning to get on each others' nerves. Not sure why. What I am sure of is that you are NOT to blame so stick around, if for no other reason than to watch the goings-on. My Daddy was a Baptist preacher and he and I NEVER agreed on ANYTHING. Get my drift?
But I respect all beliefs that don't require my active participation. If a religious observance helps, have at it. Maybe better not to go into too much detail on this forum, however.
James, you are unfortunately expecting too much from us "adults"! It's the kids that get along. We adults seem to have lost that ability. Just watch the news.
Oh well... I hope I didn't just start another flame war.
