    Pres. Oaks talk - Be One event

    Exactly. It's not about all the legal eagle wrangling. It's about being Christ-like. It's about repentance. If we want our youth to know the value of repentance, it would help to see it come from the prophets seers and revelators at the head of the church. We don't hold the church to the high degree of infallible the way Catholics do the pope, do we? There has been recent popes who have apologies for the wrongs done in their church's past. Why can't we?

    What a wonderful event!

    I think the same way you do. I wanted, I needed an apology.

    The cost of being Mormon, and the loss.

    I live in the north were Mormonism is small and do not get those kind of reactions. You get them because you live in GA., the Bible belt. It really is dependent upon geography

    Pope Endorses Homosexual Behavior?

    Since we like people to go to LDS sources for accurate information, here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says about homosexuality Chastity and homosexuality 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,140 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."141 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. 2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. They do not choose their homosexual condition; for most of them it is a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

    Pope Endorses Homosexual Behavior?

    Where do you get the idea that he has endorsed homosexual behavior? Please don't tell me it's because he told a man, who happens to be a homosexual, that God loves him???????

    There are plenty of Mormons who work in Hollywood. Even several Osmonds, for what it's worth.

    Noah's Ark.....i know call me crazy.

    Im one of those who believe it was a local flood and not global. People in ancient times such as the time of Noah's view of "the entire earth" was actually very small and not global

    For once in 7 years, life is good.

    ENJOY! Hope that you have a long stretch of the still waters.
  15. Either way, censoring is censoring regardless of the criteria set up to censor. Both the Deseret News, the Tribune and any other private business can censor or not if they so choose. DN censors closely, the SLT doesn't. Both are within their rights
