I won't disagree. Sometimes I wonder if it's better to cry with the saints or drink with the sinners, but that's a story for another time.
It's guilt, pure and simple. People who say things like this are riddled with self guilt and their only outlet is through making others feel guilt for something they had no hand in doing. Remember when a group tried to get all of the colleges to change their mascots if it was native American in connotation? FSU and others? Well, turns out to be a bunch of white do-gooders that had less Native American in them than Custer. I just don't get it.
Family gatherings just were. Unreligious, un-PC, unrepentant, unadulterated enjoyment of everyone's company. IMO, just as it should be. Simple and sweet, whatever others call it.
