So God made a farmer huh?
February 6, 2013 at 2:36 PM

I'm not even christian, and the new "God Made A Farmer" Dodge RAM commercial even brought me to tears. I was waiting to see how long it would take before someone threw a fit about God being thrown into the superbowl commercials and sure enough I just read through the comments on the youtube video. Why do people always have to turn things into a "that's discrimination" type argument? Just wondering.

    It's not the god part that bothered me, but the whitewashing.

    Never mind the slaves who were forced to work the fields for nothing. They act like only country white folk are suited to farm.

    So I stand corrected. Not only does everything have to turn into a religious argument, apparently i t has to be turned into a racial one as well.

    I'd like to make a video like that, with the maudlin background music, the sad sonorous narration, and with black and white images artfully arranged; but I would title it: "So God Made a Cubical Worker" and would feature a short balding tubby little man who picked his nose in most of the scenes.

    I LOVE and miss Paul Harvey. It was a good commercial... And I don't like Dodge and I'm a Ford girl and waiver in my belief in God

    People read WAY too deeply into things.

    I'm Pagan and I fell in love with this commercial the minute it started. Whether you believe in God or not, it was a commercial that was meant to make you stop in your tracks and I think it did. Our entire household got silent as soon as he started talking. It was kinda crazy!

     Oh geez. It wasn't about slavery. It was about farming. There was a black farmer in the commercial.
