  1. “The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what – that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. “If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions – remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions – it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the deve
  2. Ah.....That's a good one, but you must remember that no one expects the Mormon Inquisition!
  3. When will we learn our lesson not to fall for the first news about a supposedly controversial event?
  4. So in honor of this quote I will cut out my tongue, puncture my eardrums, and gouge out my eyes. That will show 'em.
  5. Yes. When the new hymn book was announced I suggested printing localized inserts that could be added to a general hymnal, even including national patriotic music and regional composers. The revolution in computerized music publishing makes it really easy to do exactly this.

  10. There is no grace, forgiveness, or mercy in Cancel Culture, only justice. Unfortunately, canceling the Atonement is creeping into some folks in the Church.
  11. The Pharisees were not among those who followed Christ and then turned away. Of those, he said
  12. God will find a good place for all his children. "In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."
  13. Tying the prophesied calamities of the Last Days to the current disintegration of the family makes it up to date. So, for you it is not valid, but for me it is. Perhaps we should come to some sort of agreement on what the purposes of Proclamations and Declarations are. Así es la vida.
