    Morality is not something that a person on this earth decides. It comes from the standards, laws, commandments, etc. that God has given us. God is perfect. He knows all things. He has given us these things through the scriptures and prophets (His spokesmen) so that we can be tested. He wants to see if we will follow those things despite us not being able to see him or have a perfect knowledge like he does. This is how “faith” is tested. Faith is believing and acting that something is true even though you cannot see it or know the end result BEFOREHAND. That’s where God has given us a gift to help with this. What we call a “conscience” is that guidance God gives us to encourage us to choose the right act when we are presented and opportunity to test our faith. Once you have exercised your faith by acting the way God wants you to, then he will confirm to you that what you did was correct. This accumulation of experiences helps us shape our knowlege of what right and wrong is.

    As we continue testing our faith and make the right choices, then God gives us more understanding. We cannot determine what things are moral (i.e. right and wrong) without relying on God’s knowledge. If we try to only rely upon our understanding, we will fail. However, God allows us to fail so that we can see the difference between doing it his way and our way.

    I know that doing it God’s way is the only way. I found that out by doing what He said to do. I hope you might too.

    Is that “improving” the “handness” through beta testing?

    We need to call all the airlines traveling into and out of these countries and ask them to stop the flights, not rely on the US Government to apply a ban. It’s the airlines flying, not the government.

    A vote NOT to repeal gives you the answer. YES she would have voted for it.

    I used to live near Kagoshima in a place called Sendai. Visited several times to Kagoshima and got to experience the normal amount of ash in the air. You can’t really wear contacts there or dry your clothes outside (a normal practice there.) It’s constantly been active but rarely to this kind of level. Sakurajima (Cherry Blossom Island) is an awesome and beautiful sight though. I loved southern Japan.

    Actually, AMDATME is technically right. In the scriptures Christ said, “For verily, verily I say unto you, he that hath the spirit of contention is not of me, but is of the devil, who is the father of contention, and he stirreth up the hearts of men to contend with anger, one with another.”

    You can catch a glimpse of the hand of one of them in the video. Definitely dark skinned.

    Only white people can call each other “cr***a,” especially to white males. That’s just our culture. But if a black person said “cr***er,” that’s very offensive. Unless a white person says it, then it’s ok.

    If you have any doubt about who established the Constitution, read the words of Christ:

    “80 …I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood.”

    Doctrine and Covenants 101:80

    Christ is the author of the Constitution. This country was established for Christ’s purposes.

    There is no doubt that through the years there were probably some leaders and boys who have struggled with the temptation of being attracted to boys. That, like any other temptation that conflicts with the principles of Scouting, is something that any scout has to overcome. Yes, I said overcome. The Scout Oath and Scout Law apply holistically to every scout to be morally straight and clean in action and in thought. Why thoughts? Because thoughts lead to actions.

    But what if a scout steals; is he kicked out for not being honest? If a boy, probably no, but it would be addressed. If an adult, more than likely yes; especially if it is a criminal matter. But that kind of action probably doesn’t incite threats of lawsuits from parents. Lawsuits from parents of boys who were “sexually assaulted” by adult leaders prompted BSA to create the rules in place. Security of the boys is the primary priority, but having to lose tons of valuable donations speaks a little bit louder. Now the threat of lawsuits by these “offended” people is prompting change again.

    This bothers me because,
    1. it is legitimizing the tendencies as “natural” and ok to entertain
    2. provides a platform for enticing the behavior
    3. puts at risk exposing this disgusting behavior to others to further spread the temptation

    What disgusts me even more are the adults who are pushing these children to embrace such a damaging mindset. Next to murder, this is the most damning thing one can do to their so

    The next time there is a weapons running operations that needs to be covered up by allowing an attack on the delivery guys, a supposed demonstration will happen because of this video…..several months from now.

    Love the comment “You’ll never see kids paraded at a Pro-Choice Rally.”

    I don’t need a reason to exercise my GOD given rights. I don’t need a reason to buy certain weapons. Every weapon is an “assault” weapon. It can be used to assault someone else. Just look at all the “assault” weapons in prisons (spoons, forks, toothbrushes, etc.) The left use the word “assault” to incite fear and demonize and inanimate object.

    God given rights are to be freely exercised when and how I want. Government can’t infringe on that. If it does, government is in trouble.

    As an Eagle Scout, I know how much work goes into earning the award. I similarly didn’t earn mine until right before my 18th birthday. I understand the sense of pressure. However, there are consequences to not living up to rules or promises made. The Boy Scouts of America make it VERY CLEAR from the beginning that they do not tolerate having ANYONE in the organization (leader or scout) that commits any act of sexual impropriety or even PROFESSES to be homosexual. They are a private organization and they can do this. This boy and his parents knew the consequences. They are just pissed and acting like immature children using the “media” to try and pressure other to give up on following the rules too.

    The Boy Scout Oath says:
    On my honor I will do my best
    To do my duty to GOD and my country
    and to obey the Scout Law;
    To help other people at all times;
    To keep myself physically strong,
    mentally awake, and MORALLY STRAIGHT

    Obviously this boy hasn’t followed the oath that he took. He needs to learn that there are consequences to every action, both good and bad.
