Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Is "Merry Christmas" politically incorrect within US? Are state officials allowed to say that instead of "Happy Holidays"?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

Which is ironic because Happy Holidays is still Christian...

Very politically incorrect.  The governor of Rhode Island was just on insisting how it was a "holiday tree."
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
