I see a lot of negativity in the forums, which is typical fare for an online forum - but come on guys and gals - this is Christmas! And Christmas is about forgiveness and moving on to what we all hope to be a better year, right?
So, I propose an idea. Think of something you said or did this past year (online or offline) and offer your apologies. Perhaps, by everyone showing they have had a moment they feel wasn't their best we can all appreciate that none of us are perfect and all just as likely to falter as the next.
Of course, I would never ask others to do that which I am unwilling to do myself, so I'll get the ball rolling.
My apology revolves around arguing with others over evolution in the religious forums. While I might have my views on evolution, it's not a religious topic, and therefore I should have never argued it there. For that, I apologize, and I have already resolved not to do so again.
So, anyone else willing to show a bit of subtle humility and ask for forgiveness?
It's time to come correct, I'm sorry I'm mean to the liberals, gays, progressives, ACLU, loose women, hill country dogs, men who wear womens underwear, NOW, PETA, telemarkers(ski), enviromental nazis, islama nazis, Illinois nazis, people who don't mow their lawn, people who can't drive, tattle-tails, cry-babys, bully's, whimps, pansys, fruitcakes, spitters, women who can't get a handle on their hair, goths, women that hit and atheists. If I've offended you and you weren't in a subgroup of those listed, I'm sorry. I really am sorry, I'm crushed. So I'll ask Santa for stronger meds so I'll be numb to your ridiculus reasons for being you! Merry Christmas!
Everyone of those listed I've either taunted or made fun of! I apologized for not understanding where they are coming from. It was meant to be funny and slip in a apology by showing it isn't them it's my fault. Sorry I wasn't clear.

Yoshi-- yours was a nice gesture in the spirit of the season-- and it should be encouraged. Let it be-- not everyone will respond in kind, and some are just being flippant. it is what it is. Cheers and happiness to all who will receive.
Christmas is a time to forgive, and yes, let me add this- forget. Since it's easy to forgive than forget, let's just put this two-gether, for the true spirit of the season. I forgive all those who believe I can't be a better hubber. LOL! Merry Christmas to One and All!
It is good, to not let the sun go down, on any wrath. I believe Christmas, is also about Love:) Without Love there may not be any forgiveness. Yet, without forgiveness there is not love...(thinking outloud now, yoshi:) "Merry Christmas!"
Here ya go, Mark.An open thread for you to get feedback about divorce/adultery and if/how Christians in particular have obtained forgiveness for those sins.Or make one of your own, whatever floats your boat!
I'm part of a family full of people who don't say I'm sorry. I had to actually learn how to say those words. My mother never said I'm sorry to me for some of the hurtful things she said and did.Have you ever had moments...
What do you think of people saying, "I'm sorry" Does it really make everything okay or right?Do you think saying sorry for something still makes everything 'right' between you and another person? Do you think...
