  1. Not sure what your point is here, but could this not be construed as reminding people to be aware of what there is to be grateful for?

    1. I’m sure that’s what they intended, but Good Friday is the somberest day of the holiest weekend for Christians – a day to acknowledge the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Not sure a TV station slapping a hashtag and logo over a picture of crosses and asking people to “engage” is really in the spirit of the day.

      1. You’re right, The true religious meaning of many things is remembered I’m sure by some. But I’ve observed as more “freedom” from ritual has become the norm over the past 50 years, at least one generation has been raised in a more “watered down” religious atmosphere, which can be good at times. My sense is that those are more and more the people who are calling the shots at news outlets. If you think about it, today’s assignment editors will not perceive what’s news in a manner that someone from Uncle Walter’s era would. I think that difference in sensibilities is what accounts for what FOX31 posted, likely clueless about your own sensibilities.
