  1. So no, why celebrate a sacred tradition if you, yourself (and I’m not meaning you, specifically, Kate) do not hold the tenets and credos of that religion sacred.
    I personally feel religion should be respected and followed as best as possible.
    That’s what they taught me in Catholic school.
    But that’s what I think.

  2. Catholics were the first Christians, why put them in separate groups?

    What about the people who were okay with Bill Clinton being a womanizer and cheater, are they allowed to celebrate Easter?

    1. Kate, that’s a good question. What do you think? In my opinion, I felt Clinton was a much better leader, but he did cheat, so did I.
      It’s all about morality, isn’t it? And lines drawn.
      But by your reasoning then, those who voted for Trump as well as those who voted for Clinton shouldn’t be celebrating.
      Where are morals and religion now?
      Where are ethics?
      I was born Catholic, I didn’t choose it, and I’m non-practicing, because by the strict definition of Catholicism, I’ve done too much to be considered devout.
      And let me pose this question to you – the inverse of your question, if anybody who voted for Trump, and claims themselves as Catholic or Christian, says that he is human, and therefore easily strayed to sin and should be forgiven his trespasses, should we not, then, forgive Clinton his?
      That’s what I don’t like. I don’t like people using religion as a shield to forgive this person but judge that one – merely due to political bias.
      We can’t have our cake and eat it, too.
      If we condemn one, we condemn all.
      If we forgive one, we forgive all.
      We don’t get to cherry pick.
      What do you think?
