Dude, a bunch of people responded negatively to your post.
It could have been easily resolved with “I misspoke, my apologies” if the post above was your ultimate mindset on the issue.
Personally, I think your post was wrong. I don’t hold it against you because I had to read back pages to realize it was you saying it. The content of the post was dismissive to things many of us have thought about for ages.
Literally nothing has stopped you from saying “what I said was wrong, this is what I meant to say” if that was what you wanted to convey.
No one should be embarrassed about being wrong. It happens to everyone. Maybe next time, instead of throwing up a defensive shield and threatening to leave the board, think about why so many people reacted negatively to that post.
I thank you for your response Brock...even though I said I was out of here after my response. LOL
I have always respected you as an owner of TD, and I have always respected you for your Twins and baseball perspectives, even if we didn't always agree. (Though most times we have). And my respect for you only grew in other sensitive articles when you spoke about your family and their experiences. I tip my cap to you sir for being an intillegent and good man! You are amongst many that I truly hope I can meet one day at Twins Fest or other gathering.
You are correct that my second post was more in keeping with my intent and my beliefs. In good conscious, I can't just say "I was wrong" with my first post simply, as I stated, I was simply TRYING to open up dialogue and asking questions I don't have the answers to. To me, asking honest questions is never wrong for those of us who want to know, and embrace knowledge and change.
I HONESTLY offer apologies if my first post was simply done poorly! Again, I attempted to be more clear in my second post. I was just attempting to add and open dialogue for this important subject. And in no way was I attempting to be dismisivve of the topic or sensitivities regarding such.
I ABHORE any sort of discrimation! It's not me, how I was raised, what I believe in, or what God and my Savior Jesus Christ believes in. (Yes, I'm a Christian). And I am a humble man. And while my intent was pure, it sure seems my intent was done poorly, though I swear I thought I was being clear. It sure appears my intent...at least the first try...was badly done. And again, if someone took offense or didn't understand my intent, man, I really, really apologize.
