I would read it, but if there is one thing that I am less tolerant of than religion, it is Facebook. Well, also Pittsburgh. I almost forgot the song Red, Red Wine, I am less tolerant of that too. Let's not forget cheating. OK, it's in my top ten list of intolerance.

I appreciate your honesty.

It is a video, I suppose I should have mentioned that in the OP...

And it is not "preachy" -- just a great man coming to terms with end of life.

"I know to be true true that Jesus was born", opening sentence. Sorry that sounds like preaching to me.

I disagree with you.

He is proclaiming his own faith, not - at any point - does he begin to proselytize.

There is a difference.

It doesn't to me -- at least, not in context. If this was a message that a person just happened to make and to share with non-believers, then yes. But if it's someone coming to the end of his life it sounds more like he's expressing comfort in his faith and satisfaction in the path he's chosen for life.

The existence of Jesus as a historical figure is not the most controversial of concepts and not at all limited to the religious in acceptance.
No, but going on to say that he was (for example) the redeemer of our sins is religious.

Except he has chosen to share it with everyone, including non believers.

Actually there is not, preaching is proclaiming your faith to others.

preaching
present participle of preach (Verb)
Verb

Deliver a sermon or religious address to an assembled group of people, typically in church: "he preached to a large congregation".

Publicly proclaim or teach (a religious message or belief).

Where did modern religious folks get the idea that Jesus was poor? His father was a skilled craftsman and would have been firmly middle to upper middle class. Is it the manger story? They do know that they were in the manger because there was no room at the inn not for lack of funds right? Where does this whole poverty stricken child idea come from?

11:31 in wherever BoardGameGeek registers itself.
Or not, if you customized your timezone in BGG.

They were poor enough early in Jesus life at least. We know this because they took a sacrifice of doves to the temple (Luke 2:24), which is what people did who couldn't afford a lamb (Leviticus 12:8).

One would assume that when the Magi showed up several months later (they weren't at the manger), their gifts significantly elevated them out of this status.

Maybe they were just cheapskates. Anyone who knows 'well off' people, knows that one of the main reasons they're 'well off' is because they're cheapskates*.


*This does not necessarily hold true for people who were given their wealth, e.g. the 'spoiled rich kid.'

But separation of church and state means any time anyone expresses any religious thought at all, they are preaching.

Wait... whut?
