probably the same place you go to unsubscribe to snobbery about people entertaining people/children in giant novelty costumes crossing into your field of vision

Really?!?
1. I don't see how playing your favorite song in the same way your teammates are playing theirs is pushing anything.
2. http://www.ijreview.com/2015/02/251741-isis-terrorists/


What in the ever loving crap does that isis story have to do with Tim's comment about people not being encouraged to push their beliefs on others on this forum?

Also, it's really doubtful that is his favorite song. If he's playing his wife's (awful) music he's trying to promote his wife's (awful) music. Like if one of these guys was married to One Direction and played their music in their walk up, that would suck.


Someone suggested that no other religion pushes their beliefs on others. I implied that a group of people who were killing people for their differing religious views were doing just that. Its pretty straightforward.

I'm not pushy with my beliefs. In fact, I've been in this forum 13 years, and I'd venture to say that none of you even know what my religious views are. But I kind get sick of the "everyone should express themselves, but if Christians express themselves in EXACTLY the same way, its pushy" mantra.

that occurred to me. still would seem weird to fly out here just to check it out and then fly back out west for a game tomorrow (not that all of them will play)...still, that's probably the most likely reason.

You have to be searching for an opportunity to feel slighted to come up with that interpretation.

I really am confused then. I don't understand why he would say that, and I don't see any other way to read it than the way I did. But if he wasn't saying that Christianity is the only religion that that encourages its adherents to "push their beliefs on others", then my response is a non-sequitur, and I apologize. I really don't see another way to read.

Because you came in whining about everybody but Christians getting to express themselves.

And I stand by that. Its a little ridiculous that people would be so offended by a song.

I'm thankful to live in a country where you have that right. That does not preclude his right to play his favorite song like everyone else.

I'm telling you man, that's not his favorite song. And in this country we frown on shameless promotion

I'm clearly still missing something. Why is it not his favorite song?

I like a wide variety of music. On my goto playlist is Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jimmy Hendrix, Bob Marley and Elton John. As a musician, there is very little on Christian radio that I find appealing. But the "all Christian music is crap" was 25 years ago. You specifically said "religious pop" and I would probably agree. But to me most all pop music is garbage.

There are niches within the niche where you can find some great music. PM and I'll send you some examples. I wouldn't want to provide links publicly, thereby inflicting my views on innocent bystanders :wink:

Folwer is hitting leadoff and Heyward is hitting second to start the year, though I'm guessing we will see some combo other than those 2 before we even get to the home opener.
