  1. You specifically told her to go back to another board. That much is clear.
  2. This seems germane to the discussion...something about shutting down conversation using the admonition to take her "nitpicking" to another board...or something.
  3. So, not distancing themselves at all from the "hosts" who place themselves in the middle of controversy and who publicly demonstrate poor judgment.
  4. John Dehlin is a known quantity. I'm not sure why anyone would be surprised by his flair for the dramatic, or even debating it at this point, other than as a means to deflect attention away from the real questions at hand; namely - Why does FAIR continue to associate itself with a figure who is regularly at the center of so much controversy? I am speaking, of course, of Kwaku El, lest anyone construe my comment as a reference to John Dehlin.
  5. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I submit Exhibit 14 in support of the notion that some defenders will literally defend anything. In short, the ends justify the means and principles are far less important than winning.
  6. I'm not a Dehlin fan, if that's what you're implying. Never have been. I don't care for his drama or his attempt at building a cult following.
  7. Well, I'm not talking about Dehlin calling the police (which seems pretty pointless to me, btw). I'm talking about your cries of racism from the beginning.
  8. Well, I'm not really here to talk about my position on race (I support BLM, for the record), but you are now engaging in a false equivalency. What happened to George Floyd was a clear and flagrant improper use of force borne from decades of systematic racism in law enforcement. In short, the "punishment" didn't remotely fit the alleged "crime." Criticizing Kwaku El for behaving in a tasteless and inappropriate fashion is about his activities on social media. There is nothing in the criticisms that I have seen which are out-sized when compared to his conduct. I'm willing to admit I am wron
  9. Who said i was color blind? I simply don't see the link you keep making between criticism of Kwaku's behavior and the color of his skin. His behavior is worthy of criticism irrespective of his skin color. You harping on his skin color looks like an attempt at diverting attention away from his bad acts.
  10. And, yet, you seem to be the only one making an issue of Kwaku's race in this entire set of events.
  11. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I submit Exhibit 13 in support of the allegation that FM's association with Kwaku was a TERRIBLE idea.
  12. It seems apparent, to me, that this was a massively bad idea. The execution is juvenile and in poor taste. At some point decision makers need to cut their losses and put an end to this embarrassment. Doubling down will not end well, in my opinion.
  13. Yep! Just enter the license plate, and you're good to go!
  14. But, in an easy to use online format, complete with automatic upload for use in the Temple?! That's just genius.
  15. According to the book Mysteries of Godliness, the Church had a curse book included in the True Order or Prayer for a brief time during the conflict with the U.S. government over polygamy: ""In 1880 Mormon leaders responded to efforts by the U.S. government to suppress plural marriage by convening a special temple prayer circle of general authorities to curse the church's enemies. Among the nearly 400 names listed on the prayer roll were those of Martin Van Buren, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B Hayes, and James Buchannan."
  16. Any chance they could bring back the curse roll? I have a few names I might like to add....
  17. Dad's an idiot. Clearly, this guy is a bomb waiting to go off; if it wasn't the mission issue, it would have been something else.
  18. Pretty sure he responded because you're hilarious. ETA: I see he responded already. I like my summary, though.
