    I just showed the movie Joyeux Noel to my students 2 weeks ago. They loved it!! Such a great story. It is hard to believe we will be acknowledging the centennial of this event in just a few weeks. I told my kids that this would be talked about–and here it is.

    As I was reading this, I had to admit I gulped pretty big when I found out who the bishop was. Mark Paredes and I have been friends for about 12 years now. I’ve had him in my home and went to church with Mark many times, long before he became a bishop. Secretly I and others in my congregation have said the same thing about Harry Reid. I don’t know how he sleeps at night. But at the same time, I’m not Harry Reid’s ecclesiastical leader, nor am I a spokesperson for the entire Church. Harry Reid is just who he is. I don’t get him, I really don’t. Almost all Mormons don’t understand Reid. We almost all have the same sentiments; Mark is just bolder than I am and has a forum to speak and write about it. All I know is that Reid will have to stand before the Savior one day (as we all will) and explain himself. Hopefully Reid retires–he’s certainly done enough.

    Dude, she’s a conservative. I know her. I went to Church with her. I know her husband Jason. She’s a conservative and a true patriot.

    You beat me to it. I was going to say–he’s only 1 chromosome short of Kevin Hart… :)

    Glenn does believe that the Book of Mormon is the word of God (as do I). He does believe in the teachings of Joseph Smith (as do I). He WORSHIPS the God of Israel (Our Father in Heaven) and His Son Jesus Christ. I think it is high time people stop trying to disprove other faiths, and start recognizing the good in ALL Judeo-Christian sects. We have a lot to learn from each other–and we need to build each other up. I think it would do everyone a lot of good to read and ponder the Book of Mormon. It is monumentally powerful–so Christ-centered and supernal–and it changes lives for the better! All seekers of TRUTH eventually find it and come to know if its veracity. I testify of it. So would Glenn.

    Very flattering photo of Soledad, but she is not going to bite the hand that feeds her. She can spin her conscience away from reality all she wants, but inside she knows she works for the devil. It truly is amazing what people will believe and justify when their very livelihood depends on it.

    Boy, these guys do look–”Deliverance-y”.

    His humor reminds me of Douglas Adams. Dry, witty, cerebral.

    Yeah, that struck me too. Multiple camera angles in a private room…at Hefner’s mansion. That would do it.

    “It’s been HARD ON my family and HARD ON me.” A bad choice of words considering the context…I still can’t believe that the cops actually were going to try to get pictures of his erection AFTERWARDS to compare the sext? This is really a bizarre case…

    “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me…” “Render unto Caesar, what is Caesar’s. Render unto God what is God’s”. I would feel very sorry for the IRS if they attempt to steal from God. Some serious WRATH would be dished out.

    Kipling was right. “When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins”… One step further: We are paying people for their sins. Man, we’re in trouble.

    The sad truth is that Hollywood is short. It’s true. Most of the actors that are huge–are NOT. Lots of “small” stars on the big screen. Cruise, Hoffman, Downey Jr., Sutherland, Broderick, Stiller, Gibson, Slater, Stallone, Wahlberg, Cage, Fox, Damon, Radcliffe, Jack Black, Jon Stewart, Ryan Seacrest, Seth Green, Giovanni Ribisi, Kevin Hart, James McAvoy, Scott Caan, David Spade–the list goes on. All 5’9″ or less. Of course they can all stand on huge piles of CASH. That makes them a little taller.

    Yes, I am a Mormon, and very happy that I am. I am not reducing God in any way. What the Bible though seems to be very clear about is, that what God creates is of infinite and amazing worth. The doctrine of God being Glorified Man (Christ is often referred to as the Son of Man) doesn’t diminish God–it ELEVATES US! Man is just below the angels, and we need to start respecting that. It’s an awesome bit of information and should serve to remind us that we need to love one another more, be more kind and Christ-like. It should remind us that God is our Father, He is well aware of His children and we were created in His image–and also that the resurrection is real and will occur in the same manner as Jesus’ was. It is very clear from the Bible that this is so. 1st Corinthians 15:
    20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

    21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

    22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

    Too often there are those that believe IN the Bible–but they don’t BELIEVE IT. God is Glorified Man. He had a Son. Christ wasn’t kidding when He said, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me, hath seen the Father;” — John 14:9
    It’s perfectly logical

    thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen: Ex. 33:23 .
    With him will I speak mouth to mouth: Num. 12:8 .
    a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son: Matt. 3:17 .
    every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God: Matt. 4:4 .
    for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have: Luke 24:39 .
    he that hath seen me hath seen the Father: John 14:9 .

    the express image of his person: Heb. 1:3 .
    men, which are made after the similitude of God: James 3:9 .
    when he shall appear, we shall be like him: 1 Jn. 3:2 .

    I never took geometry. It wasn’t required in Idaho in the ’80s. I was fascinated by it, but I do agree, maybe we a little too excited about a fairly logical math pattern. I don’t think people appreciate that simplicity, precision, and consistency can be rather stimulating. Most kids today want the spectacle, explosions, and what not. This is quite a rudimentary, but well-played illusion–that’s particularly interesting.

    Amen. I’m glad I live in Texas, where I don’t worry about CC, but NCLB is still robbing us of our ability to function in a classroom. I love the kids, but administration…
