So God made a farmer huh?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm not even christian, and the new "God Made A Farmer" Dodge RAM commercial even brought me to tears. I was waiting to see how long it would take before someone threw a fit about God being thrown into the superbowl commercials and sure enough I just read through the comments on the youtube video. Why do people always have to turn things into a "that's discrimination" type argument? Just wondering.

Pretty much.

So I stand corrected. Not only does everything have to turn into a religious argument, apparently i t has to be turned into a racial one as well.

Never mind the slaves who were forced to work the fields for nothing. They act like only country white folk are suited to farm.

People are always going to comment... If they didn't the internet would be a lot more boring.

I am atheist, and I don't care if people express their faith... it does bother me that it was used to sell trucks, I think that's kind of an abuse of faith and while I am not religious, I don't like to see religion used as a tool to make money. I think its something that's supposed to bring you strength and hope and make you want to be a better person, not something to be used to gain worldly possessions.

Paul Harvey had a voice that could do that to people. :)

I'm Pagan and I fell in love with this commercial the minute it started. Whether you believe in God or not, it was a commercial that was meant to make you stop in your tracks and I think it did. Our entire household got silent as soon as he started talking. It was kinda crazy!

I LOVE and miss Paul Harvey. It was a good commercial... And I don't like Dodge and I'm a Ford girl and waiver in my belief in God

People read WAY too deeply into things.
