    I always seem to remember a line about “Straight (as in direction) is the path and narrow is the gate.” when God referred to how to reach him. I don’t think that means you should bend to every popular whim and opinion of the day if you want to hold to that path.

    God may love the sinner, but he never said he approved of their actions or decisions.

    Let me ask you a pointed question as a member of the church.

    If you let someone come between you and God, which person is closer to where they should be?

    Let me tell you something about me.

    I’ve heard your song a hundred ways by a hundred different people and it always ends the same way. I’ve been judged by twits who thought themselves superior to me because of some supposed piety, but I am still there every Sunday because the Lord and his church are much bigger than the stupidity of some of the members. And yes there are things that go on which I don’t agree with, yet I’ve often found myself realizing how wrong I was because I had my head down in the trenches.

    But that is for you to decide, a man has agency, and you have the choice on how you are going to act. The Lord’s work and His church will continue on with or without you, but I promise you that the blessings of being a part of that marvelous work, regardless of what you feel about the people will be far greater than those you will find not being a part of it.

    You really don’t know much about us Mormons, I would be happy to enlighten you if you sincerely want to know. Otherwise I doubt we have anything to discuss.

    While the Lord did treat everyone with love and respect, he did also call them to repentance, instructing them to keep his commandments. The mistake that many seem to make is that in order to be loving we accept the sinners and tell them everything is alright. When we do so, we are lying to them. Yes the Lord died for your sins and you can repent, but when you willfully disobey him and mock his sacrifice by gaming the system how do you think that is going to play out? We are all sinners, it is true, but the difference is are you trying to follow in the steps of Christ, doing your best to keep His commandments, or are you paying lip service to Him while pursuing the lusts of sin? I can’t be the judge of that and it is not for me to determine a person’s final fate, but I think many of us are smart enough to know which path a person is following by their own words and actions, and it falls to us to call them to repentance as the Lord commanded.

    I’ve seen this several times before in my life, the first time was when I was a child in Ohio. Granted that was before the days when social media so nobody really gave a care about it. These two aren’t the first, and certainly won’t be the last in the long list of people who leave the church then crusade against it. I really don’t care, the work of the Lord moves forward, whether they want to be part of it or not is for them to decide.

    What I say next is only intended for fellow Latter Day Saints or Mormons if you prefer. You know the vows and the promises you have made. If ever you find yourself in opposition against the commandments of the Lord (and yes it is the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ whether given through his mouth or through the mouths of his servants the prophets), then perhaps you need to evaluate where you are standing rather than thinking the Lord need change his doctrine to accommodate you. We don’t teach acceptance or equality, we teach truth which is offered freely and equally to all and while the taste is often bitter the fruits of truth are the greatest gift and love that can ever be given.

    You know, with a bit of cunning this situation could work greatly to our advantage. The insurgents are Sunnis, and if they manage to topple the Iraq government, it would likely force the Iranians to get involved in the conflict. That ties their strength down further, forcing them to handle two nations in the grip of a civil war. The risk to that gamble is that if the Iranians drive back the insurgents, then they will have access to Iraq’s primary oil production areas and infrastructure, as well as our equipment. But with the current leadership of this country, I doubt many have had such a thought cross their minds, oh well just another wasted opportunity.

    If nothing else this is going to send waves running through the highest echelons of the GOP higher ups and strategos. How much comes loose, only time will tell, but the loss of cantor will not be a small impact that they can ignore.

    Expect the nastiness between the higher ups and the tea party to increase drastically.

    Well they were bound to get one incident to fit their narrative since they have been pursuing it for nearly two decades. Getting them to understand the hypocrisy of that, your profile picture about captures the futility of that particular struggle.

    Why does government have to say who a business can and cannot serve? Aren’t people smart enough to make those decisions on their own? Forcing someone to serve against their beliefs only stokes the fires of hatred more. Let them serve who they will and let people be the judge of their actions, we do not need a bunch of self righteous lawyers running around commanding people’s lives to the minute detail.

    I also seem the recall Jesus calling people to repentance. If I were to say “hey it’s okay you are perfect the way you are” then I would be guilty of not tending to His flock and giving them false reassurances about their lives. I cannot support what they are engaging in, in any material way or fashion, that doesn’t mean I’m going to forbid them from being in my business, but I’m not making a cake to celebrate their breaking of Gods commands.

  • June 4, 2014 at 3:51pm

    Ha! I like this guy. Then again I do take a lot pleasure from telling a bunch of self righteous bureaucrats where they can shove it.

    “Bake a cake for the couple.”

    “Make me!”

    Probably won’t end well, but I have to admire someone who finally has the courage to actually do it.

    One problem with that statement, it’s not an accusation it is a fact. The law exists, was it followed? No. Then the law has been broken, not an accusation or opinion just a simple fact. Unless his excellency Barack the First can rewrite law as he sees fit any child would come to that same conclusion.

    Watch as Barack readies his Blitzer and MSNBC puppets for their next act, the title: “What difference does it make?”

    They never learned that lesson, I suppose they deserve it, after all they watched the mass outsourcing of jobs because of the cost and regulations of manufacturing here. Now it will be the service employees who get to learn the lesson, a touch screen register can do your job.

    “Elections have consequences,” this many fruits and nuts in a bowl are bound to result in a lot of bad ideas.

    I prefer “Stupid hurts, never let anyone tell you otherwise.”

    This does seem to be getting worse by the minute doesn’t it.

  • [3] June 2, 2014 at 12:14pm

    The problem is when you show you are willing to give up people to get something back, it will encourage them to use that tactic in the future, why do you think the standing policy is “no negotiation with terrorists?” It isn’t because government is thickheaded it is because once they realize there is a weakspot in your armor people are going to go after again because they know you will cave.

    The is a horrible bit of advice I once heard when they were interviewing a Spetsnaz officer, “if you hesitate to kill your enemy when they hide behind a human shield, you will only encourage others to do the same. You have to show them the folly of that tactic, and sometimes the hostage will die because of it.” Cold hearted without a doubt, but that is the burden of leading armies and a nation.

    When you hang your child out there for the world to gawk at, you should expect what results you get. It is time for parents to be parents instead of enabling every foolish whim of their children, it is no different than all those fools who have enabled their children to be sexually promiscuous or enabled their rampant drug use.

  • [2] May 31, 2014 at 7:06pm

    If they can only survive based on what I, a person how doesn’t know them or care much about them except what they put out, chose whether to live or die based on my opinions, then they deserve their fate.

    If you can’t stand the judgment of others, then stop putting yourself out there for everyone to gawk at, as these parents have.

  • [1] May 31, 2014 at 6:59pm

    It is up to the person to decide, though no matter what clothes you wear and how you dress, you DNA still reads “male” or “female.” These fools who have created “gender” as a part of identify should be shot, you can be as manly or girly as you want, but you will always be one or the other no matter what delusions or degenerate behavior you engage in. Unless you are a true hermaphrodite, but those are somewhat a rarity.
