  1. I don't think anyone was really concerned. There was no harm done, just free speech. https://kslnewsradio.com/1944384/students-light-byu-y-in-rainbow-colors/
  2. I look at it as more of a national park (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist).
  3. I learned how to study and how to manage my time effectively.
  4. It seems it might of been a good thing to re-state. This statement coming when it did makes it clear that the church in no way supports or defends the actions of the insurrectionists on January 6th. Some of those people were clearly Mormon.
  5. The first presidency just put out a statement on the violence at the capital. It would be great we could get everyone in the country to read it and then take a couple of steps back and chill.
  6. Are you really comparing the 2016 election with the 2020 election? Give me a break. Yes, there were people who were unhappy with Trump being elected and some did speak out. But that is not extremism, That is called free speech. Extremism is when you dress up in your red hats and violently attach the nations capital. There is no justification for this.
  7. We saw dangerous extremism happen on Jan 6, and it wasn't anti-trump people.
  8. Off Topic: This was one of the larger of the historic Utah frauds. I have studied the Relief Mine history and actually explored the mine itself. There are still many of the faithful in Southern Utah County who continue to believe Bishop Koyle's story and hold Relief Mine stock.
  9. Elder Dale G. Renlund said Monday that wearing a face covering need not be politicized or contentious, the latest statement supporting masks made over the past nine months by leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints https://www.deseret.com/faith/2020/12/7/22158497/mormon-lds-church-masks-covid-19-coronavirus-christlike-love-pandemic-apostle-renlund
  10. I think he is setting a good example to all members to adhere to social distancing during this pandemic. I also read into this the importance he places on friendships. I agree with this. IMO we are social animals and we derive joy and purpose by being with and helping others. As an aside, could this Instagram post by Holland be considered a hologram?
  11. This inability to fully use the Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) database seems like a major issue. And as such there should have been a delay in the publishing of this research until they worked this out. If there would have been peer review of this research, I believe this would have been identified and called out.
  12. I think the optimal word in this whole rant is rationalize. COVID is real, and the church has responded appropriately. COVID will pass, and members lives that were saved by not meeting in large groups will continue on.
  13. Can I apply for the ward greater position? I have an engaging smile and a warm demeanor, and I am very well acquainted with the ward foyer, as I spend most of Sunday school there.
