    Funny, put real life abortion in broad daylight and even the abortionists have to run away and hide it. Shouldn’t they stand proud and tall for their cause?

    The lack of fathers is a problem regardless of race. But it is accurate that African American families struggle with it far more than other races. This wasn’t always the case. After the Civil War, African American families remained just as strong as European Americans until about the 1960s when African Americans bought into liberalism and switched from being Republicans to Democrats.

    Healthcare costs skyrocket for two reasons:

    1. Government spending on healthcare is a bailout of rising prices. Hospitals will charge higher and higher prices as long as the government is willing to pick up those tabs. We see this in tuition prices as well.

    2. Hospitals rarely reveal their prices for services. Consumers are powerless when they have no idea what costs are and the different options. Imagine going to the grocery store and there were no prices and you were told what to buy. It would be a total sham and illegal. Before long prices would be out of control. Yet we allow this with healthcare.

    Jesus taught that He and His Father were two men:

    “It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.” (John 8:17-18)

    While praying to His Father Jesus taught that the disciples can be one (in purpose) just as He and the Father are one (in purpose):

    “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.” (John 17:11)

    Lastly, when Stephen is being martyred he looks up into heaven and sees Jesus standing next to God:

    “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.” (Acts 7:55-56)

    But that’s the point. There were at least 4 long scrolls which when unrolled spanned beyond an entire room. The few scraps which remain today can hardly be used as conclusive proof of how Joseph translated his Book of Abraham.

    Joseph was bombing over the target and you’re quibbling over whether it was Pharaoh or the power of Pharaoh?

    As for the four sons of Horus, they were idolatrous gods and they do represent the four cardinal points of the earth, north, south, east, and west. Frequently they would place these jars in the four corners of a room.

    But these were probably just lucky guesses by Joseph.

    True or false: Egyptologists recognize that Pharoah can be represented as a crocodile?

    True or false: Egyptologists recognize that the four jars underneath the lion couch are idolatrous gods who represent the four corners of the earth?

    Joseph also gets names and places right as well. None of this makes sense if he’s just making stuff up.

    I just read the statement by the LDS Church and it didn’t say anything new. The media act like these statements represent some shift in thinking by the LDS Church. I think these statements are mostly a rebuttal to the misinformation spread around by critics.

    Critics of Joseph Smith love to focus on the mystery of how he translated but ignore the content of his books. This is because Joseph’s Book of Abraham contains many pieces of information about Abraham which were unknown in the early 19th century but have been confirmed by various Abrahamic texts since found. And Joseph’s interpretations of the facsimiles is way too much in agreement with modern Egyptologists to just chalk it up to luck.

    Obama is toxic. His poll numbers are in the toilet. The last things these Dem candidates want is to be tied to Obama this election.

    It accelerates a bit faster than the donkey he uses to get to work.

    I think Beck is doing the right thing. People of other nations are still children of God and our brothers and sisters in the human family. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves. It doesn’t mean these illegal immigrants should stay.

    Conservatives have the brains but have failed to engage the heart of the public. If conservatives can rebrand their positions as being the truly compassionate solutions it would be a major blow to the failed policies of liberalism.

    If public safety is the concern, why put people at risk and then hand out revenue making tickets? To me it seems ineffective and conveniently enriching to the town.

    Romney has name recognition which gives him a big advantage. None of the other possible candidates do except Jeb Bush. I would vote for Romney again. However of all the current possible candidates I think Scott Walker is my favorite. Anyone who stands up to big unions and wins should be in charge of the Republican Party.

    The comments in the Youtube videos say the girl survived. But they didn’t source their info.

    This whole “controversy” seems a bit contrived. The guy selling his movie needs a scandal to get free publicity and it is working. I can understand why the producers of The Book of Mormon musical don’t want to promote a movie about LDS missionaries being abducted. The last thing they want is for people to connect the soft bigotry of their musical with violence against Mormons.

    The CDC, Mayo Clinic, WebMD all say that gay sex is risky and unhealthy. It isn’t anti-gay, it’s just the facts. If gays want to do that to each other then they should be free to do so. But calling it marriage is a joke and an insult to real marriage.

    The amount of black on black crime and black on white crime is staggering. Liberals seem to think this is acceptable, and even blame white racism for it. Of course we know that skin color doesn’t make people violent, it’s the breakdown of the family that is to blame.

    Are we ready for the Fair Tax yet? It’s time to ban the IRS.

    In this day where gender is blurred, concepts like gender roles rub some people the wrong way. The women in the LDS Church have their own organization called Relief Society which is patterned after the Priesthood. The differences are in small degrees of emphasis. There is a small emphasis upon men to take charge of spiritual matters and a small emphasis upon women to take charge of family matters. But both are supposed to support and assist each other heavily in those responsibilities. LDS women give sermons every week, perform priesthood ordinances in the Temple, make visits to member homes, preside as pastors over various organizations (like children and young women’s groups). Even at the higher levels of the Church the Apostles will always be men, but there are also positions that only women will hold, like the Relief Society General Presidency, etc.

    It’s not about equal rights, it’s about MORE rights than you and me.
