  1. Considering that next year’s SS curriculum has a lesson on the Proclamation on the Family, I expect it to be officially canonized. If not in October (since it’s going to be virtual again), then in April.
  2. Except in cases of self-defense, killing a child’s other parent is an act of abuse. Yes, murderers absolutely should lose custody unless and until they are judged innocent.
  3. I work in a kindergarten, and those kids do NOT social distance. However, requiring them to wear masks or face shields is completely reasonable. Little kids are pretty flexible about meeting new rules if the parents are not undermining the school. There was a Facebook post going around recently about a kindergartener with cystic fibrosis who had to wear a mask to school if he didn’t want to end up in the hospital. His classmates were totally on board with “we need to keep our friend safe” and washed their hands and stayed home if they had any sniffles. The teacher said she had never h
  4. I have read many statements from truck drivers saying that if a road is blocked by protesters, they will not stop. They remember Reginald Denny all too well.
  5. She had been studying Captain Moroni’s Guide to Diplomacy.
  6. And masks are allowed. I predict a cottage industry of fancy white temple masks.
  7. Harvard has a reserve of $40 billion, for just that one school. Compared to that, the Church’s reserve does not seem excessive at all.

    I’m so sorry.
  9. Jesus faced all the temptations we do, but succumbed to none of them. I’m not sure terms like “gay” and “straight” even apply.
  10. My thought is that we need to slow the spread long enough for antivirals and vaccines to be readily available before too many people catch it.
  11. My Bishop was all set to require two priesthood holders to bless the sacrament, since this is the preference normally. Ministering brothers would have been needed for at least 2/3 of our families. Fortunately for the sanity of my EQP dh, the Bishop changed his mind to authorizing family priesthood holders. Those without are to be offered the sacrament weekly, with the hope that everyone will receive it at least once per month. I have a couple friends (different stakes from each other) whose stake presidents initially would not authorize home Sacrament. They both received word Sunday a
  12. One of the boys from my ward is in Equador. The government is set to close the borders tomorrow. Since he has only 80 or so days left, he is being released instead of being confined to his apartment for weeks.
  13. Well, now you have me searching through my 1918 hymn book for candidates. So far, I’m pretty sure I can eliminate “Where is My Wandering Boy Tonight?” and “O Stop and Tell Me, Red Man”.
  14. Nitrile gloves are what health professionals usually wear. Even my ridiculous-number-of-contact-allergies youngest managed to not react to them. A lot of doctors’ offices (especially oncologists and such) have a box of masks at check-in with a sign asking people to wear one if they are sneezing or coughing. Maybe we could make that a thing at church.
  15. I would do it. As a teenager, I valued the opportunity to meet with other Latter-Day Saints every day. If we didn’t have release-time seminary here, I would want the same for my own kids if possible.
