God will have bigger concerns
I read with interest the letter from the gentleman who bemoans the fact the Veterans parade is always on Saturday so he can’t go because of his religion. Well sorry friend, but most parades regardless of holiday are on Saturday because most people aren’t working and the kids are out of school. As long as the recognition is heartfelt it does not have to be the day of the holiday. Heck, does anyone really know if the son of God was born on December the 25th? Truth is, we don’t know. That date comes from centuries of deduction and conjecture, but not being sure does not demean our recognition of what that life changing event meant to humanity.
I’ve always found it interesting the different religious tenants that say you can’t go out on this day, have to fast on that week, can’t eat this kind of food. I mean seriously, the Gregorian Calendar didn’t come out until 1582, so who’s to say what day it is anyway? Bottom line, come judgment day I’m thinking God will be concerned with far more serious infractions than what day someone watched a parade or what they had for dinner.
