    Handel’s Messiah has been at the top of the charts since 1742.

    Only when it’s combined with the Grand Old Duke of York’s, “And when you’re up, you’re up! And when you’re down, you’re down! And when you’re only halfway up, you’re neither up nor down!”

    Thank you for removing all doubt that you are trolling. I don't remember the exact words of the post. I know throughout the thread, he has been questioning people's beliefs. Write clearly can't handle that.

    If you want a response to a specific post, find it and quote it. That shouldn't be so hard to do, but you don't want an answer. You want to troll.

    He won't. He's too busy trolling.

    While we’re at it, why isn’t there a holiday called Wester? After all, the West works just as hard.

    And let us not forgot JS Bach's Passions, esp. St. Matthew.

    My guess is that there isn't the same commercial hook as there is with Christmas. The Christmas story of three smart dudes presenting gifts to the baby Jesus creates a cultural and economic event that simply isn't there with Easter. Christmas also has the benefit of being close to New Year's, thereby creating a holiday season.

    I'm glad your experience differs from the national averages.
    Still, self-proclaimed evangelicals do seem to have a proclivity to love their guns.
    Packing in the Pews: The Connection Between God and Guns

    According to 2017 Pew Research Center data analyzed for CT, white evangelicals are more likely than members of other faith groups or the average citizen to own a gun; 41 percent do, compared to 30 percent of Americans overall.
