    My wife and I both waited until we were married, and we have absolutely no regrets. I’m grateful to God that I had parents that taught me by word and example to keep your virtue. No need to kick the tires. We were able to easily figure it out.

    Would you shush it already? :) Any time ANYTHING has a positive effect on the economy, progressives are aroused with fantasies of finding the minutest problem with it so they can regulate it into the ground. If it isn’t broke, they’ll fix it until it is. It is considered evil if they don’t control it.

    I have fond memories of my years at BYU. I worked hard, had a lot of fun, and met my wife there. While I was single though, I was bound by the honor code prohibiting me from engaging in sexual activity with anyone who is not my wife. Yep, that means that there was no messing around. I have no regrets. The same honor code that I obeyed applies to those with same-sex attraction. No sex outside a heterosexual marriage.

    This is a flawed argument. We are ALWAYS voting for the lesser of two evils. What, should we all write in Jesus Christ now? C’mon! Look, the reason why we have primaries is so that you can vote for the candidate who shares our principles. For example, my vote, my advocacy, and financial backing was for Ted Cruz. He didn’t win. I’m not dumping my principles now for trying to affect the outcome of the election in a way that does the least damage. Do I endorse Trump? No. Will I financially back Trump? No. Will I advocate for his causes that are not my own? No. Will I vote for him? Absolutely. You see, Trump with all his problems is STILL better than Hillary. We can vote for Trump, or we can scrape the bottom with Rodham. Take your pick.

    Division and disintegration are the inevitable consequences of not having living oracles, organization, and recognized living authority, regardless of noble intentions. While it is true that the Bible clearly and unambiguously condemns homosexual relations (and hence homosexual unions), the Bible alone has no way of authoritatively enforcing itself in Christianity, nor is meant to be an administrative document. The “priesthood of all believers” ensures there is no consequence to deviations from the revealed word. That is why we in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have a message for the world that the heavens have been opened once again, and that God has revealed himself in our day and time. We claim that God has restored the same organization that existed in the ancient church at the time of Christ, complete with apostles and prophets. This truth we declare, not with any insistence that you take our word for it, but rather to invite you to come and see for yourself.

    Is it selling out to be honest and truthful about your experience, regardless of whether that fits the template? Absolutely not. When you honestly don’t know whether allegations are true or not, withholding judgment until you get more information (if you have a good chance of getting it) is exactly what we SHOULD do. To do otherwise is to behave like the left, who like to classify everyone and assign collective guilt by group. I believe that guilt is individual, not collective. For that reason, I blaspheme social justice and collective guilt as the flying spaghetti monsters that they are. While you have to be more patient to uphold individual justice, but you make fewer mistakes and have far less to be guilty of.

    Wow, you are on a roll! Dead on accurate too!

    Cute. No, that passage came after an account of a man named Korihor in Alma 30 of the Book of Mormon. I guess I assumed most people would think this passage applies more to Adolf Hitler than Joseph Smith. Perhaps you’re the exception. Oops, my bad.

    “And thus we see the end of him who perverteth the ways of the Lord; and thus we see that the devil will not support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to hell.” –Alma 30:60 (The Book of Mormon)

    While I realize that there are some matters that are not addressed with clarity in the scriptures, gender and marriage isn’t one of them. For a follower of Christ, the prototype of the marriage covenant being between a man and a woman was defined by the Lord Jesus Christ himself in terms that are fundamental and nonnegotiable. Look, if you can’t take seriously his assertion that God made them in the beginning male and female, and that he commanded that a man leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they twain to become one flesh, and that Christ reaffirmed this truth, then you aren’t taking anything Christ says seriously anyway. You aren’t a follower of Christ. For those who are serious about their discipleship to the Savior Jesus Christ, it is not their business or inclination to tamper with clear and unmistakable declarations given by Him. As Matt Walsh explains, it is one thing as a Christian to violate the directives of the Lord, and it is quite a different thing for him to knowingly subvert, frustrate, undermine, or openly rebel against well established fundamental precepts and doctrines.

    “We Need to Recognize Our Privilege”

    First off, no “we” don’t. Second, “we” in this context is nothing but Hillary’s imaginary friend. There is no we. Thirdly, I will stiff any person or organization who attempts to fleece me or attempts to impose a guilt trip on me for an imaginary crime, and so should you. “White privilege” is an arbitrary and invalid concept that no person on earth has any obligation to dignify.

    I am a Mormon, and I condemn their fraud wholeheartedly. I have no complaints about the justice they are getting, especially when it involves underaged girls. As long as we are at it, why don’t we also condemn the fraud of those who have children with multiple women and don’t take care of them, yet still receive government welfare.

  • [2] February 23, 2016 at 6:25pm

    In this country, you can father 20 children with multiple women and still not commit welfare fraud. The FLDS men merely made the tactical mistake of not abandoning their women. It is only when you have the audacity to live with all the women that you’ve been with that you run into problems. That’s kind of warped if you think about it.

    The non-endorsement of Ted Cruz by Jimmy Carter is probably the best endorsement Cruz could get. Consider yourself in good company not being liked by Jimmy Carter, Ted. Another way to look at this is that a democrat will never tell you who they think would be the best president (because it will always be a democrat), but instead whom they want their candidate to face in the general.

    My wife and I both saved ourselves for each other. We are the only ones each of us have ever been with, and this year we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary. Waiting for marriage gives you a clear conscience and no regrets. It also is a blessing and gift to your children.

    On 12 May 2012, Mitt Romney spoke at Liberty University to quell “deep” Evangelical concerns about his values. Imagine that. He had to reassure them that their values on life, religious liberty, etc. were also his. Even though he got the Evangelical vote by in large, there were plenty who had reservations–many so called experts on values and conservatism. I even know of Evangelical pastors who encouraged their members not to vote for him because of the M word. You were so worried about cults.

    Fast forward four years. Today, too many Christians all too easily jump on the Trump bandwagon. There seem to be no concerns about Trump supporting partial birth abortion, an assault weapons ban, eminent domain laws, single payer healthcare, tax increases, Hillary Clinton for President, and impeaching George W. Bush. Romney had to bow before these hypocrites 4 and 8 years ago, to prove time and time again that his conversion on legalized abortion was real (It was.). Trump, on the contrary, has to prove nothing to many evangelicals. Many of these “discerning” Christians who were once the “guardians of Bible truth and morality” in 2012 are now throwing their credibility overboard.

    While many of you Evangelicals are rock solid on values, I’m frustrated that too many self-proclaimed authorities on cults are all too eager to join a cult of personality that is Donald Trump.

    You’re preaching to the choir, my friend. There are a lot of betrayed conservatives in this country who vote every election, including me. Even so, we have a candidate in Ted Cruz, who has proven he is comfortable in his conservative skin. He is not ashamed of this country’s founding, and he has proven he will buck the system. He is reliable, and although no candidate can possibly give us everything we want, he has shown that he can be counted on to sustain, uphold, and defend the Constitution.

    While I respect Trump’s boldness, and would vote for him in the general if he were the nominee, I have reservations about him being our nominee. We have better choices than Trump.

    If I’m not mistaken, was it not Palin who was criticizing Romney for not being conservative enough? Now lo and behold, here she is endorsing someone to the left of him. To those of you who criticized Romney for not being conservative enough but are now on the Trump bandwagon: do you realize how utterly PHONY you and Palin look?
