I was listening to the radio this morning, and some dude was giving "holiday season advice" about being thankful for what we have and to not be focused on just the things that we want.
I thought to myself, hmm that sounds familiar. And then I realized that he was basically giving advice straight from the Bible. And yet, if he had tacked on a Bible verse at the end of his comments, then tons of people would be up in arms about him trying to brainwash us or something.
Anyway, I just think it's funny (and sad) how often people gladly accept general statements that are true unless a controversial tag (like the Bible) is attached to it. Humans are funny creatures.
