    What about Ben Carson?

    This is absolutely a non-story and shows the ignorance of everyone who has never been around the deaf culture. Facial expressions and exaggerated gestures are part of ASL. It’s how they communicate emotions when you can’t hear it in someone’s voice. There was nothing “over-the-top” about this interpreter.

    I don’t get it. Are there no gas stations where you travel?

    Did you even listen to what was said??? The whole point of the press conference was to clearly state that the LDS Church believes the exact opposite of what you just accused them of. Hate the sin, NOT the sinner.

    Exactly what did they “give”? They just pointed out the obvious: Gays should not be to take away any part of religious freedom.

    My point is, is that there is no place in a football stadium that has a temperature of 85 degrees unless someone was intentionally making the temperature that hot for a special purpose. Then having 11 out of the 12 balls deflated is too much of a coincidence considering they would have needed at least one ball to make sure their kicks and punts were good. If the balls were just “accidentally” inflated in a significantly hotter than normal temperature then they ALL would have been deflated. Especially since the NFL is so anal about the PSI of all the balls. This scrutiny of ball PSI also begs the question of how that one “good” ball got in there if this was all just an accident. Wouldn’t that ball have been filled up significantly higher than the regulated PSI, thus forcing the officials to have the ball deflated to the proper PSI during testing before it was taken by the officials to the field?

  • [3] January 26, 2015 at 1:30am

    While that is true it would have meant that the balls would have to be stored AND TESTED in an environment that was at least 85 degrees in order for the balls to register at 12.5 PSI at testing then drop to 10.5 PSI during the game because the outside temperature at the game was around 50 degrees. So while they may not have necessarily “deflated” the balls by letting air out of the balls there was STILL someone obviously trying to deceive the officials by altering the air temperatures of the balls at inspection. Either way someone cheated.

    I’ve also found it interesting that no one has talked about the fact that one ball was fine. Do you want to know why they would have not altered the air pressure of one of the balls? They needed that single ball with good air pressure for field goals, punts, and kick-offs. If they had a flatter ball for any of those the kicker wouldn’t have been able to get the ball as far.

    James, writermomof4 just owned you. There’s no talking yourself out of that point. The only tactic you have left is the universal liberal fall-back of name-calling.

    Well from reading the article I think what everyone is mad about is that the coach told them not to shoot the ball in the third and fourth quarters until there was only seven seconds left. Which means unless the other team was able to cause a turnover there was really nothing they could do to get the ball back. Perhaps what happened was the team went up by a ridiculous amount then just held onto the ball the rest of the game to keep the ball from getting into the other team’s hands. I agree that would be super annoying and wouldn’t exactly be teaching the kids to play the game. However it sounds like to me that this team is just far superior to everyone else and they’re just whining about it. If you have a good team then you have a good team. You want to beat them? Build a better team!

    You’re implying that Christ said “It is finished.” as if God’s work on this earth was done. If you believe that then you’re completey missing the point of why we’re even here on this earth. God’s work is us. This earth was created for us. The Atonement of Jesus Christ, the very thing Christ was referring to in the quote you just gave, was for us. The scriptures are for us. The very Gospel of Jesus Christ is for us. All of it is for us to learn what we need to learn so we’ll be prepared for the next life after this. It doesn’t end once we’ve passed from this life. There’s more knowledge, more lessons, more growing to be done. God will never be “finished”.
    I find it ironic that so many Christians criticize the LDS Church for having the belief that God has given the world a prophet once again and more scripture (records of other prophets’ dealings with mankind) for us to learn from. Was this not the very same criticism that the Jews had against Christ and His followers? Although many of them were righteous and sincerely wanted to follow God, they had their noses stuck so far into the customs and culture of their religion that they couldn’t even see who Christ was when He came.
    Maybe Christians of every sect should take the time to consider that perhaps God really HAS established HIS church on the earth once again? That His children are prepared once again to have a prophet to provide guidance specifically for our day and to straighten up doctrine just as He has done since the beginning of history?

    So be it. The federal government doesn’t dictate the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And if/when they do come after this religion don’t think they won’t line up every other religion as well, especially Christian sects.

    How could we ever value life, happiness, joy, love, excitement, compassion, gratitude, kindness, respect, humility, and every other positive trait that a person can learn/inherit if we were never able to know what they were? You can’t know these things without something to contrast them against. Without question, the best people I’ve ever met in this life were the ones who faced seemingly impossible adversity and never gave up or let the darkness of those moments take over them. They are people who can express those emotions and feelings of love, compassion, hope, joy, etc. at a level that is just as seemingly impossible as the dark moments they went through.
    On the other hand there are those who allow those dark moments to control them. They become bitter, angry, resentful, jealous, full of hate, etc. The difference between them and those who became better people is following those principles taught by our loving Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. That’s the whole purpose of why we’re here. To learn those eternal principles and how/why they work. They’re just as real and relevant as every other law that governs our universe like gravity, the laws of motion, magnetism, flight, thermodynamics, etc. Most of our world believes these laws without question even though we don’t exactly know why they work the way they do (take gravity for example). The principles taught in the scriptures can be measured and tested in the exact same way these other laws were.

    “Facts” usually require proof. While I will agree with the statement that men in power have killed in the name of Christ, you structure your statements to make it seem like Christianity and Islam have been equally violent through their histories. That is absolutely false. The entire article you’re commenting on specifically talks about this.

    And this folks is what happens when you create gun laws that purposely discourages citizens from owning a weapon. Shooting fish in a barrel…

    Giving unborn children a special name like “fetus” or “embryo” may make you feel better but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a child. The Nazis did the same thing with the Jews. Made everyone look at them as “less than human” so it would be okay to get rid of them. Most Islamists still use this trick today to justify killing Jews. We did it with Africans which made us feel better about making them slaves. Go actually read about how society viewed black people before segregation was abolished and especially when we were practicing slavery. We raised our kids to think Africans were some sort of sub-human species. The “technical term” trick has been used since the beginning of time to justify the systematic killing of a group of people.

  • [7] January 7, 2015 at 1:54pm

    Well why did we get rid of slavery then FutureSailor? It was legal for over 200 years in this country since pilgrims first landed here until we fought a war that killed hundreds of thousands of people so that we could force half of our nation to stop the practice of it. Was it the right thing to do? Absolutely! So your argument that people should not speak out against abortion because it’s “legal” is just ridiculous. What if no one had spoken out against slavery? Where would we still be in this nation? Practicing slavery and probably murdering those same slaves when and where we liked without consequence! What about giving the right for women to vote? It was legal to deny them that right until just several decades ago. What about segregation? That was not only practiced but it was forced upon businesses and public buildings in many states until just a few decades ago. I could go on and on…

    So you want to still argue this… GIRL SCOUT?

  • [20] January 7, 2015 at 1:40pm

    Exactly JRook, which is why abortion should be UNDENIABLY ILLEGAL in this nation. An unborn child should have every right given under the Constitution WHICH INCLUDES ‘LIFE’. Abortion is absolutely murder and we as a nation are going to pay the price for our continued tolerance of its practice.

    baddoggy, It wasn’t Christ’s crucifixion that allowed all mankind to be saved from their sins. It was His Atonement; which occurred before He was crucified in the Garden of Gethsemane the same night Judas led the Roman soldiers to Him. The whole purpose of the crucifixion was to seal His mission with his blood and allow Him to die so He could take His life back. His Resurrection is what will allow all mankind, regardless of if they are believers or not, to also be resurrected after He comes again to the earth. It is a free gift to all mankind. However being washed clean of one’s sins so that they can return to live with Christ is a gift that one has to accept by following Christ and living His teachings.

    Who the heck did they get to bring the horse because that lady had no idea what she was doing with the horse. First of all she’s holding the wrong reigns. Second of all you better have a good horse that is okay with something around it’s hind quarters like say A WEDDING DRESS!!! Next time get someone who has actually trained a horse rather than your rich neighbor who has horses for the spectacle and because they don’t know what else to buy with their money.

    @sieden. People like you always go to the old argument, “Well I believe people should have the freedom to choose.” This isn’t an argument about choice. It’s seeing the cold, hard facts about the consequences of good choices and bad choices. You’re free to make the choice to walk down to your corner gas station and rob it. That doesn’t mean you won’t avoid the consequences. The same goes for every other bad choice. We may be able to avoid the consequences for a time but sooner or later those consequences show up and they’ll make you pay the price. I’ve seen other couples just like you and your wife that thought they were independent of these consequences. Every single one of them ended up in a circumstance of unfaithfulness with their spouse. Some of them were able to forgive each other and turn their lives around. Others walked away from each other and continued to walk the path of unfaithfulness… I 100% guarantee that yours will end up in the same circumstance if you continue down the road you are.
