While you’re at the SL Tribune

read this.

Regarding the financial outpouring from the LDS church on Prop 8 in California: “He [Reid] said that he thought it was a waste of church resources and good will,” said Derek Washington, a Nevadan who worked as the outreach director for the march. “He said he didn’t think it was appropriate.”

Reid spokesman Jon Summers would not discuss the private meeting, but he didn’t deny the conversation took place.

“While Senator Reid agrees with his church that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Summers said, “he also believes that the resources that went into the Proposition 8 effort could have been put to better use.”

Reid… what an embarrassment and a joke. And the Mormons have to shoulder this burden! Too bad for them. How soon before this guy makes it against the law for churches to advance social and moral causes that run contrary to his (or other socialists) political agenda? 

Converting the dead

I know that when I take my last breath, there will be some distant cousin (on my mother’s side) who will be baptizing me like this. And in death, I’ll be just as offended.

I was born a Catholic and I’ll die one. I’m pretty sure that Father Damien felt like I do, even though unlike me, he WAS a good Catholic.  I’m a pretty lazy one.

This still offends me in a big way. It’s bad enough that someone baptizes a dead person into their church but to then “marry and seal” them for “all eternity” is just… ugly. And pardon me, but sinful, too. I mean, think about it: sealing a Catholic priest to some unknown woman, over 100 years after his death?



Someone needs to thank them

In September Najibullah Zazi was arrested for what is alleged as terrorist plots on New York sites. His plan was to use weapons of mass destruction on “persons and buildings in New York City” and a Brooklyn grand jury brought down an indictment. There is now evidence to suggest that this bus driver had contacts with a very high Al-Qaida official.

Has the White House or the Attorney General said anything positive about those involved in breaking this case? Have there been any pats on the backs from TheOne’s administration or TheOne himself, to those who are working to keep our country safe?

Holder is too busy trying to take down the CIA to acknowledge what appears to be a job well done by our intelligence and law enforcement communities. TheOne is too busy talking about how our cops “act stupidly” and not paying any attention to the bludgeoning of Derrion Albert in Chicago, to say a few words about what a debt we owe these hardworking cops who do their best to keep us safe.

I’m going to be constantly amazed and deeply appreciative at what law enforcement is doing to protect us, especially when I consider the onslaught they are suffering from Holder and the Obama administration.

It’s just disgraceful!
