  1. Hah. I would have simply ended it with the condemnation of indoor plumbing. Would have been amazing satire.

    Either way, I’m glad you covered this. Sadly this will not stop those who believe that such things as celebrating Thanksgiving is a blot on the church that Christ will purge with fire.

    I thought about ending on that point, but someone would’ve taken it seriously.

  3. Some evangelicals prefer to see “Christian” doctors and lawyers. One COG group even went to a Christian mediation service in the last year or two, to resolve differences between top leaders. Wouldn’t many other COG’s reject that, saying they’re not “REAL Christians” so they should be avoided?

    If you had misused several, commas, semicolons, and colons; in the first section, it could have EASILY passed for: the ramblings of you-know-who.

    That was hilarious! Also, in all the times that I’ve read through the Torah, I somehow didn’t make any mental notes about God’s bathroom instructions, so I appreciated the novelty of that as well :)

    I’ve actually been thinking about Thanksgiving for the last couple of years. I still don’t have a satisfactory answer, and I think that the historical record is just splotchy enough for people to put it into whatever convenient frame they want to suit their conclusions. It never occurred to me until I noticed that there has been an effort by some to paint it as being loosely, but consciously, based on the Feast of Tabernacles (a thought which immediately made me uncomfortable), but after examining it I don’t think there is any evidence to support that other than the obvious connection that it is focused on the harvest.
