    3 Mexican Cops + 5 Middle East Terrorists = 1 US Marine

    Withmy89vision,

    Just an FYI, Mormons do not practice polygamy. That practice has been abolished by the church for nearly 124 years now.

    The FACT is proper hand-washing techniques at a food establishment would not allow for the tattoo to remain hidden by make-up all day.

    It sure sucks, when you have to live with the consequences of the decisions you make!

    You have the right to have the tattoo on your hand just as much as the employer has the right to not have it in his business.

    It may be covered up, but she works in a food establishment. This means that she should be washing her hands many times throughout the day. Unless it is waterproof makeup, it should come off with each hand washing. If it is not coming off, she is not washing her hands at all or not washing them appropriately and is violating the food handling policies.

    As an employee, you are not only held to the rules you talk about in your job interview, rather you are responsible to understand all the policies and procedures once you take the job. That is part of your job. Does your employer have tell you to breathe while working too? Grow up people.

    That’s the hole I dug as a kid, trying to get to China. When I realized I was not in China, I had to fill it back in. Guess I missed a spot.

    First of all Ed, it’s Mormon, not Morman.

    Second, as a Mormon, Glen gives the Church 10% of his income and many hours a week of volunteer work within the Church. How much do you give Ed?

    It sure sucks when you have to actually live with the consequences of your decisions, huh?

    As an employee or customer, I will tell you right now, if I was in the women’s bathroom and saw a penis, I would be complaining to the store manager, calling the cops on the Pervert (I’m not claiming she/he is a pervert, but that would be my thought if I found him/her in the women’s bathroom). Hobby Lobby has to look out for the “feelings” of all it’s other employees and customers too.

    I don’t think they need more fans. Over 715 million watched the world cup final. Super Bowl was 111 million and NBA final was 26 million. Soccer does not need more fans. They have 7 times more than the NFL and 27.5 times more that the NBA. The article is just pointing out that the only market soccer is small in is the USA, and that is changing.

    Americans do have a choice what to watch. But they can only watch it if it is broadcast. I live in the small state of Utah. The Utah Jazz can barely get 20,000 to a game with half the tickets given away. However, Real Salt Lake (the soccer team), draws 20,000+ every game. As you can already see, ESPN and other sports networks are starting to see this increasing market and making bigger and better contracts for soccer to be televised. So right now Americans have the choice what to watch, but have a very limited choice. Luckily, you will see that choice increase over the coming years and I think you will be surprised at how well soccer will do.

  • [2] July 14, 2014 at 7:19pm

    So, 715 million people watched the world cup final. That is compared to 111 million watched the super bowl and 26 million watched the NBA final (game 7). The world must be full of more people wanting to watch boring soccer than those thrill seekers that prefer the action of the NBA or NFL. I hate to say it, but more people in the world watch soccer over any other sport. Heck 18 million Americans watched a group stage soccer game, that rivals with the final game of the NBA playoffs. And you have to admit more than half to two-thirds of the viewers of the Super Bowl are only there for the chips, dip and commercials.

    LCDR-

    You won’t rehash the prophesies that have not come true, because you don’t know what they are. How many of John the Revelators prophesies have come true? Not all of them!!! Why not all of them? Because some are still to be fulfilled. Who are you to say that if Joseph Smith prophesied something as a prophet, the time for it’s fulfillment has come and gone? Are you God? Do you get to decide when a prophecy expires? I thought not.

    You fail to understand Genesis 3 also. Satan was telling Adam and Eve the truth when he said that if they partook of the fruit, they would become like God. How? They would then begin to understand right from wrong, good from bad, joy from pain… The last few verses confirm this as God says they have become like us. So I ask, if we could come to understand as they do, why could we not become like them in infinite power if we now keep their commandments? As God, you should know this answer too, right?

    Two-

    “Transparency is the key”. You are correct. Everything the Mormon Church believes or does is very transparent. You can find it all written in the Bible or the Book of Mormon, the LDS.org website, in their congregation lessons, their General Conference speeches. Nothing is SECRET in the Mormon Church. However, there are things that are SACRED. There is a difference between SECRET and SACRED. Sacred things are kept out of the eyes of non-believers so that those participating in these Sacred things can focus on Christ and the reason they are doing these things. That is why temples have been built since the early ages. Can anyone see and participate in these SACRED things? Only if they are willing to take them seriously. Are they SECRET? No, anyone willing to vow that they are serious about participation in these things are granted permission. Everything done in the temples and out of the sight of the general public can be read about in the scriptures.

    PRIVACY is also very important to anyone. For example: You will not get a bishop to speak about why Harry Reid is still a member of the church, because Harry Reid and his bishop have PRIVACY issues to deal with. It is not our right to know the PRIVATE conversations of Harry Reid and his bishop.

    Please understand that SECRET, SACRED and PRIVATE are very different things.

    And what proof do you have that he didn’t translate ancient text?

    Guilty until proven innocent! That’s the America of today.

    Why would God give golden plates with ancient scripture on them to a modern day child to translate and then take them away again, so no one else could translate them?

    I’ll tell you why. God is smart. He left the ancient writings of his apostles and they have been translated by many. How many different translations are there of the same ancient script? Too Many!!! and they don’t all say the same thing. A period moved from here to there, or a comma added where it shouldn’t be, can change the entire meaning of a sentence.

    Now if you wanted to make sure something was to remain the same, wouldn’t you only allow one translation? Now remember, if God truly was behind this translation, it would be 100% accurate, or he would not allow it to be published. If God was not behind this translation of the Gold Plates, Joseph Smith was a lot smarter than people give him credit for. After all he was 14 years old when he “wrote” this book and it confirms and clarifies all of Gods teachings in the Bible(s). Civilizations have been found in parts of the Americas that correspond with the land descriptions and details given in the Book of Mormon. I have yet to read anywhere that Joseph Smith was a world traveler and ever went out West, let alone to Central America where these discoveries were made.

    “I wonder what Mormons teach about other Christian sects?”

    I’ll tell you what they teach. They teach that every person is a child of God, whether they are Mormon or not, thus they are to be loved and respected.

    They also teach that other Christian sects have parts of Gods Gospel, just not all. So Mormons are taught to not bash or discount other Christian sects, because they do teach good things. For example, all Christian sects teach baptism, however, some do it as an infant, others as an older child or adult. Mormons believe you need to be of an age of accountability, but should not condemn a Catholic who’s parents baptized them as an infant, yet holds their baptism dear to their heart and takes it seriously.

    Believe it or not, Mormons have a compilation of 13 verses called the “Articles of Faith”. These are short statements about the most basic of Mormon beliefs. One of them states: “We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.” That means Mormons are taught to believe that you have the right to worship differently than them and they are to respect that. After all, isn’t that what this country was founded on? Does that mean they cannot discuss the differences in your beliefs and try to persuade you to think differently? NO.

    …”and then you go to the next reporter and you have the same thing, as if the first one didn’t happen at all. You begin to wonder how valuable a service to the nation that is in the end.”

    I take it he is referring to the fact that one reporter asks him a question and he ***** foots around it for 15 minutes, so the next reporter has to ask the same question. You are right Mr. Carney, what value is your job to the nation? It’s not valuable at all. I’m glad you realized that you were just a clown for the oval office, now I pity the fool that thinks he is taking over your oh so important job of spin master.

    Believe it or not, you still have the right to yell “fire” in a crowded theater, however, your freedom to speak that word does come with some hefty consequences.

    Freedom of speech does not mean you get to say whatever you want without paying a price. Your freedoms cannot take other persons freedoms away. In this case, she has the right to say what she said, but the owner also has the right to fire her for potentially driving people away from his business. Her freedom of speech cannot trump his freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness.

  • [2] July 3, 2014 at 11:46am

    AGREED!!! Freedom of speech does not come without consequences. Social media has screwed up our society. That is why I do not have any facebook, twitter or other social media accounts. Fortunately my children have followed our example. My teenager was the only one in his class that raised his hand when asked if anyone is not on facebook. Believe it or not he is still popular and class president for his High School. Get out while you still can. Everything you post stays forever and future employers will find stuff you wish you had never posted.

    Funny thing is, these companies do not have to support one way or the other. Target could very well have said to the Mom’s group, “You can be proud to know that we abide by all laws in the areas in which our stores are located.” Now Target is not the target for any groups, rather the local government is.
