It’s a sad fact that many sue anyone and everyone for anythinng and everything. Let’s concentrate on educating ppl to the facts. Let’s teach them how to not fall prey to any commercial, news show, teacher, or preacher. The future is with teaching children to think for themselves and decide if what they are being told makes sense. Blind obedience is dangerous. Critical thinking is no longer the goal of teachers. Imagine how well our youth could deal with anything if they no longer had access to the internet, cell phones, etc., grocery stores, calculators, heck, indoor plumbing. Are your children and grandchildren equipped to deal with that?

Talking words to be wary of. MAY have….followed up with the headline that will get public attention, become a talking point, many will miscontrue it to mean “guilty of”. Becoming the new “talking point” of supportors of the president. Watch for it. It’s now the norm for attacking any opponent.

Bikerdogred, there is the fact that a governor did issue an order that Mormons could be legally killed in Missouri.

Broper, I thought that Reid converted to the LDS faith. I am well acquainted with the community of Search Light, NV, his home town.

I refuse to comply. I wil NOT engage in hatred when I disagree. LONG ago I tried it when I felt I had been injured, doesn’t matter why, it did’t work. I almost let it destroy my life. I had to seriously pray that the hatred would cease. Took quite awhile since I’m stubborn. Never again. I picture myself in the mind/soul of a person consummed by hate. No thank you, been there, done that.
Good for you. I am what I call a passionate person. That does make it quite easy to get caught up in the hate and find it infecting my own soul. You are right to avoid it if it is still a strong temptation. It is for me. I am very stiff-necked or bull-headed. I have learned to stick to the data, avoid name calling, and just voice my opinion and get off the train. There are times though I just quit reading the comments and move on to the next story. Too easy to let myself be dragged down into the mire with others.

Ditto to everything you said, including that I’m a Roman Catholic. You said it much better than I could.
July 12, 2012 at 2:24pm
Thank you for saying it so well. I am not LDS, but live among many who are. “My” bishop went door to door and asked ppl of any faith or none, what they could/would be able to do in the event of ANY emergency in the community. They left the papers, wished us well, and left. I have NEVER felt any pressure to join their faith.
July 12, 2012 at 2:17pm
Many embrace hatred of things they know nothing of. it’s the “cool” thing to do. It’s akin to doing unspeakable things to others to post on Youtube, or say anonymously on the internet. To inhabit that mind/soul would seem to me as hell.You can never have happiness when hatred consumes you.
July 12, 2012 at 2:06pm
I refuse to be consumed by hatred for a person or cause that differs from mine. That hatred will ultimately consume those that do. They will live their lives in misery and unhappiness, always blaming other ppl and things. Those who lose hatred and don’t believe in God will be happier. Hatred is a fatal disase that will kill you, either in real life, or it will deprive you of any happiness.

There are some who will hate people of any faith that worships God. Most true people of faith recognize that in any religion, individuals (any human being regardless of faith or lack there of), make mistakes, ie., sin. No human being is perfect, we all make mistakes. The difference is that ppl of faith try to improve themselves. They try to live their lives to a higher standard, which helps them and their community. One cannot and should not engage in replaying to plain hatred, it is and always been with us. Nothing positive occurs.

I was just waiting for the liberal media to unleash the anti-Mornon (LDS) tirade. Just a matter of time. I am not of that faith, but I do live in a state with a high population of that faith. They are good ppl who respect family values and work on that, and are patriots. They are great neighbors and protectors of the community regardless of faith. I remember when JFK ran, same issues raised then. Interesting the positions are now reversed.
I don't know how many examples it's going to take before we realize that the real enemy of Christianity are Jews. They've been eating away at Christianity for decades through their cultural changing media empires in print and the electronic media.
They play a prominent role in the ACLU, as written about by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, "reminiscent of a temple board meeting."
Yes, it is only going to get worse. What a silly ad!
What church does release its finances???
Mitt Romney has lived an exemplary life of honor, kindness and generosity as does Glenn Beck, can these libs say the same.... just read the post that are attacking Brad Pitts mom, Joy Behar potty mouth and I could include hundreds of these hateful people.
Let's unite and BRING HOME A GOP VICTORY 2012
Judge them each on an individual basis Jerk...God will, just like He will you and I.
@WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK
Let’s unite and BRING HOME A GOP VICTORY 2012
A GOP victory will not give us our country back. A GOP victory may allow us to hang on to remnants of our country for a couple years longer than a Democrat victory will, but that is about all it will do. If you truly want America back you should be looking elsewhere. The R's and the D's are almost the same thing. They are both for big government control of everything. As just one example, Gov. Romney is talking about repealing the ACA, but then what he's going to REPLACE it with. How about replacing it with nothing? The R party and it's ideologues are clueless. As usual. Peace.
[kon-si-kreyt] Show IPA verb, con·se·crat·ed, con·se·crat·ing, adjective
verb (used with object)
to make or declare sacred; set apart or dedicate to the service of a deity: to consecrate a new church building.
to make (something) an object of honor or veneration; hallow: a custom consecrated by time.
to devote or dedicate to some purpose: a life consecrated to science.
to admit or ordain to a sacred office, especially to the episcopate.
No where in the definition of consecrate does it say you have to give up your belongings? Before you say something that is not true, why don't you look up things first before you make your self look like a fool.
Look up the law of consecration in the Mormon scrips and it means basically a form of socialism where all belongings are owned by the church and the church gives members what they need. Sounds like USSR

I disliked statistics in college, but it did teach me a great deal. Polls and charts utilize statistics, and statistics can be, and are, frequently skewed to produce the answer that is desired. Graphs that are often used to make a point start with a collection of statistical data. Polls, charts, and graphs that defy the reality of your life and the lives of your community mean nothing. They are nothing more than a commercial to induce you to accept the information presented.

I don’t use any of those sites. ixquick is a good research engine. How nothing to do with how I vote.

Seems like the Girl Scouts are now a feminist, pro-abortion organization. Adults have involved young girls in an agenda.
PORTWINE...........Evil usually sneaks in and attacks the weak or young first. Satan is a first class predator, that is why he has been so active in public school and universties. It is a shame that the parent's are such willing gulls.
July 9, 2012 at 3:07pm
I notice that the Girl Scouts haven’t been repeatedly sued like the Boy Scouts.

It really is time to address the elephant in the room. Radical Islamist Terrorists now contol the world. I repeart, radical Islanst Terrorists, NOT all Muslims. The president said he his own book, paraphrasing here, he will support his Muslim brothers. Those might actually be some of the only true words in his books. He has proven by his own actions, that he will, in fact, side with those who oppose Isreal. He has snubbed their leader, never been there. England is hosting the olympics, and terrorist suspects carefully watched. It seem like only one group of ppl are the terrorists people and countries fear. I’m sure I’m now being considered a threat and may be silenced. This administration seems quite clear on where it’s priorities lie.

If I belonged to any church that held that belief, I would leave. My church does not preach that as a gospel teaching, bible scripture, or any thing else that holds that belief. That would be my FORMER church.
Our church is in a difficult position because the PCUSA holds the deed to the land it's on. The PCUSA did, however, allow them to divert their funding away from the national PCUSA and keep it local as an expression of their disagreement with Prop 10 (allowing gay clergy). If they stay on track they will have their mortgage paid off in 2017 and hopefully can distance themselves more.

Reminds me of a movie that I saw called “Distinguished Gentleman”. Character was elected to a dead man’s seat because same name. Name recognition. BTW, good movie, but beware of filty language. Eddie Murphy. Enough said. lol

Senator Hatch is now 78. If it should become necessary to have Govenor Herbert appoint someone to finish his term, Herbert was and is owned by teachers’ unions, local and national. Our last governor, who quit mid-term, was Jon Huntsman, Jr. He left to serve in the Obama administration, quit that job to run for president. I recently read that he now has a job doing something for a liberal organization.
June 26, 2012 at 11:26pm
I’m a resident of Utah. I’m very sad that Sen. Hatch has been elected yet again. At one time, he was a good senator. I’ve written letters and called his local office and DC office many times. He is a perfect example of a career politician that began to believe that he was so important that it was outside the realm of possibility to not re-elect him. The communications I’ve received spent 80% of the time detailing how important he is, and implied that I couldn’t possibly understand how complex his job was, and that I just needed to trust him. The world has changed a great deal since 1976, he hasn’t. He’s 78, time to pass the baton.
Several years ago I would defend Hatch when my wife spoke ill of him. This time I had to convince her to vote for Liljenquist over Hatch. Hatch layed down with dogs (Ted Kennedy in particular) and got up with fleas. We'll have to live with fleas in the senate for a few more years.
