WHO ARE WE GIVING THANKS TO ON THANKSGIVING

My previous post on the Marion High controversy could further tie in with today's post.  Thanks to Nolan Finley, Detroit News, who said this:

Editing God out of history distorts truth:

Ask any grade school kid who the Pilgrims were giving thanks to on the first Thanksgiving and I'll lay you three-to-one odds that the answer you get is, "the Indians." Public education is so obsessed with separation and so uncomfortable with discussions of religion that it has sanitized the unbreakable link between faith and America's founding. Now children are taught that the Pilgrims set the first Thanksgiving dinner for the Native Americans who helped keep them alive during their first harsh year in the New World.

This is more than just a small distortion in the name of political correctness. And it's not one of those Merry Christmas versus Happy Holidays issues. Whether you're a believer or non-believer, you should be concerned that God is being written out of this nation's history because doing so will limit our understanding of who we are as a people.

A H/T to A Conservative Teacher for the following blog expanding on Finley's thoughts:

Happy Thanksgiving to all that read this.  I personally have a lot to be grateful for, especially my many online friends and patriots.

  1. I found an interesting article that contains some interesting and rather unknown facts about the origins of Thanksgiving as well as insightful reflections on what it means to be thankful in a religious context. A very nice thing to read today, I think: http://dstp.cba.pl/?p=3347
