In hindsight, perhaps it would've been best if you had titled the thread something along the lines of Experiences with Religion and Lottery and not singled out the Christian faith. There are people from all religions who are either for or against the lottery. I read where many people of Islamic faith are against the lottery but many of them don't seem to mind taking in the profit from lottery sales at their convenience stores....

No No I titled it just right....because my personal experience was with "Christians"....now I did in fact say in my original post what were other peoples experiences with this.... now if you had an experience with a muslim or a jew then you could have posted those experiences....but for me to admit that I  misnamed my post would in fact strengthen the argument that I was attacking the Christian faith when in fact I did no such thing...So now if people would just stick to that point then there would be no problem....instead they said I said ALL christians are against the lottery.....which is obiviously not true

            But your title is Christians Against the Lottey and Gambling. If' I'd mentioned other religions, wouldn't I have been off topic? lolBlue Angel

                        Even if this thread was "Some Christians are against lotteries and gambling", there would still be those who questioned why the subject was brought up. Just by responding, it's similar to giving up Miranda Rights "Anything you say or do may be used against you".

                        http://www.lotterypost.com/news/115269

                        The link is an example of a group against the California Lottery expanding into Mega Millions. Had someone remarked about a possible religious make-up of the The California Coalition Against Gambling Expansion, the discussion in that thread may have turned like this one.

                        I'm not criticizing anyone's remarks; only pointing out, some times it's just better to remain silent.

                        I Agree!
