You interpret it the way YOU want. That's ok, but you're wrong.
Can you explain to the casual observer how making a thread titled:
Kavanaugh & Joseph Smith
isn't inherently political, with a follow-on comment that Joseph Smith ran for President, also isn't political?
Can you point out how your opening post

Kavanaugh 2018:Dr. Ford's allegation dates back more than 36 years, to a party that she says occurred during our time in high school. I spent most of my time in high school focused on academics, sports, church, and service. But I was not perfect in those days, just as I am not perfect today. I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends. Sometimes I had too many. In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now. But that's not why we are here today. What I've been accused of is far more serious than juvenile misbehavior. I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes.
Smith 1838:I frequently fell into many foolish errors, and displayed the weakness of youth, and the foibles of human nature; which, I am sorry to say, led me into divers temptations, offensive in the sight of God. In making this confession, no one need suppose me guilty of any great or malignant sins. A disposition to commit such was never in my nature. But I was guilty of levity, and sometimes associated with jovial company, etc., not consistent with that character which ought to be maintained by one who was called of God as I had been...
Some things never change...
... on a thread started by you isn't political in nature? You take two political persons, draw a parallel, and then claim it's not political?
What kind of thread is this then?
