    Either way, it looks like a good date night movie with my wife!

    Better book the babysitter now :)

    On a lighter note – fellas – anyone else try for weekly date nights with your wife? I’m trying to do it more often. It’s fun to date her again!

    Your short post has so many mistakes it’s hard to take seriously enough to even respond… but for the sake of the casual reader here…

    #1 – The 144,000 doctrine is Jehovah’s Witnesses doctrine.
    #2 – The name of our church is The Church OF JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints – you missed the most important part (I’m sure intentionally).
    #3 – Missionaries – from any religion – are not solicitors – they are simply sharing their message.
    #4 – Neither The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints nor the Jehovah’s Witnesses are a “cult” – to use such a lame word makes you sound like the liberals throwing out the term “racist” to try to end the conversation.
    #5 – I doubt the JW’s you ran into were “dumbfounded” by your ‘brilliant’ question – I doubt that’s a new one for them.
    #6 – ‘Mormons’ don’t follow the “rapture” doctrine.

    Ug, I just spent waaaay too much time on that…

    Sounds like we have a former defendant commenting from prison during computer time. Hope your cell mate isn’t stunningly bad as well!

    might be reading his local statutes trying to prep for a trial that he has to testify at – which doesn’t start until 10:00 am – which means he has to work overtime after working a graveyard shift – after arresting several idiot wife-beaters the prior night – and hoping the trial will end in time for him to get home and take a nap before picking up his kids from school – then trying to spend a little quality time with them before starting his next shift that evening – and then doing it all again the next day… all while cop-haters complain about him accidentally nodding off during his 5 minutes of down-time at work.

    BTW – I have never been a cop – but I have been a prosecutor and have seen how hard they all work – and then we drag them to trial on 2 hours of sleep.

    BTW – I know those of you who disagree with me won’t budge even with my response. However, just imagine – what IF God continues to speak to us through a living Prophet – just as he has from the beginning of time? What IF we had a modern day Moses, Abraham, or Isaiah?

    IF someone told you that such was true, wouldn’t you at least want to listen to them and then pray about it to know the truth?

    Now is your chance.

    All of the infighting here is shows perfectly how the Great Apostasy occurred and why we need a living prophet today.

    The Great Apostasy occurred after the Savior established His Church. After the deaths of the Savior and His Apostles, men corrupted the principles of the gospel and made unauthorized changes in Church organization and priesthood ordinances. Because of this widespread apostasy, the Lord withdrew the authority of the priesthood from the earth. This apostasy lasted until Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son appeared to Joseph Smith in 1820 and initiated the restoration of the fulness of the gospel.

    We members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that, through the priesthood conferred to Joseph Smith by the ministering of angels, the authority to act in God’s name was brought back to the earth. This is “restored,” not “reformed,” Christianity. Our belief in a restored Christianity helps explain why most Latter-day Saint converts, from the 1830s to the present, converted from other Christian denominations. None of these converts were leaving Christianity; they are simply grateful to learn about, and become part of, the restored Church of Jesus Christ, which offers a more complete and rich Christian Church spiritually, organizationally, and doctrinally.

    During the Great Apostasy, people were without divine direction from living prophets. Today our living prophet is Thomas S. Monson. See Amos 3:7.

    @Gerry,

    No, I’m going crazy from the hypocrisy.

  • [7] September 24, 2014 at 2:49pm

    Exactly.

    The priesthood of God cannot be bought for money by going to a school or otherwise. It is received only by worthy men who receive it by the laying on of hand from another who holds the authority.

    This is the same way men received the priesthood long ago, even in the days of Moses: “And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron” (Hebrews 5:4). Aaron received the priesthood from Moses, his priesthood leader (see Exodus 28:1). Only those who hold the priesthood can ordain others, and they can do so only when authorized by those who hold the keys for that ordination.

    Men cannot buy and sell the power and authority of the priesthood. Nor can they take this authority upon themselves. In the New Testament we read of a man named Simon who lived when Christ’s Apostles presided over the Church. Simon became converted and was baptized into the Church. Because he was a skillful magician, the people believed he had the power of God. But Simon did not have the priesthood, and he knew it.

    Simon knew that the Apostles and the other priesthood leaders of the Church had the true power of God. He saw them use their priesthood to do the Lord’s work, and he wanted this power for himself. He offered to buy the priesthood. (See Acts 8:9–19.) But Peter, the chief Apostle, said, “Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money” (Acts 8:20).

    @Tango

    Actually violating a law does mean you did something wrong. Think United States Constitution.

    If you don’t like a law, you use your elected officials to change it, you don’t get to pick and choose which laws you will obey. That’s what Obama does, picks and chooses which laws he will enforce and obey – not us.

  • [81] September 24, 2014 at 2:26pm

    NO!!!

    We CANNOT, I REPEAT CANNOT ACCEPT THIS BEHAVIOR JUST BECAUSE HE’S A CONSERVATIVE!

    Even IF Dinesh was caught because he was looked at closer for opposing Obama – IT DOESN’T MATTER – HE STILL INTENTIONALLY BROKE THE LAW!!!

    He wasn’t convicted and sentenced because he’s conservative, he was convicted and sentenced because he BROKE THE LAW!!

    And of all things, he broke the law in an attempt to influence an election – isn’t that the EXACT same thing that we are always calling out the liberals of doing???

    I’m shocked that we as conservatives continue to minimize and dismiss his illegal behavior because he is a conservative celebrity right now. He admittedly broke the law – period…

    If we are going to retain ANY credibility, we need to hold ourselves to a HIGHER standard than the rest!

    I posted my initial posts yesterday – then just this morning I heard Dinesh doing his rounds on talk radio (Mike Gallagher)… Dinesh and Mike were actually doing it again! They were actually trying to blame his conviction and sentencing on political bias again!!! So embarrassing.

    Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone takes responsibility for them. That is the difference between those who get second chances and those who do not.

    BTW – For today’s show and others, I’m done with Mike Gallagher – he’s just waaay to emotion based without facts. For anyone else who is looking for a better conservative talk radio program to listen to, I’ve stumbled into Michael Medved… that guy is seriously amazing in his logic and arguments (as an attorney I value both highly).

    glad to see the anti-mormons are here giving a ‘thumbs down’ vote to anything to do with mormons… even though my original post defends members of other faiths.

  • [3] September 23, 2014 at 6:50pm

    PEOPLE, we can’t blame the liberals for this one…this is embarrassing to conservatives!!!

    You know, when this all first started, I remember hearing this guy say that it was all political revenge. I believed him. Now, I’m embarrassed.

    Seriously people, when one of our own breaks the law IN AN EFFORT TO EFFECT AN ELECTION, we need to be the first in line to throw the book at him – ESPECIALLY since we are always bagging on how liberals try to cheat in elections.

    To rationalize and minimize his actions by saying “well, a liberal wouldn’t have been punished as much” is to detract from our own credibility.

    This story was shocking – as it should be to all.
