    Liberals in the Church

    For myself, while I tend towards ideals that most would consider conservative, the truth is that I pretty much view politics as a distraction from what is most important: The Plan of Salvation. It’s why we are here in mortality. It seems to me that many of us spend so much time debating which political ideology has the greater merit that we forget that living and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ has infinitely more merit than all other ideals.

    Church has issued a statement on Covid-19

    Oof. The worst part is wondering how this might spread to other illnesses. Perhaps even the common cold, and how Mr. Fred spread his germs to Mr. Joe causing him to miss work for 3 days and now wants recompense. I believe the dynamics of the (past) status quo might be susceptible to change after recent events and seeing how these have detrimentally affected the nations.

    Help from our leaders...

    We disregard the words of the holy prophets at our own peril. Naaman almost disregarded the prophet Elisha’s advice. There was no “thus sayeth the Lord” or anything other than the counsel given. He almost missed the opportunity to be healed. Likewise there were some who didn’t want to look at the serpent on the staff because they didn’t believe it would heal them. They missed the opportunity to be healed. Sounds like solid advice. Let’s not miss our opportunity to be healed.

    ob·jec·tive·ly /əbˈjektivlē,äbˈjektivlē/ adverb adverb: objectively in a way that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions Are you trying to tell me that the majority of people aren’t politically influenced by their personal feelings and opinions? In many ways, politics has become a team sport, cheering for the home team while hissing at the opposition.

    Help from our leaders...

    These two statements seem contradictory.

    No. I don’t think they are objectively assessing at all. I think they are assessing with a preconceived, desired outcome, just like most people do. That I agree with you. I think, perhaps, you misunderstand what I am saying. I agree with your assessment that they will still be voted for by many people.

    Well, “objectively assess” is key phrasing here! Of the actual results, unfortunately, I’m pretty sure we both already know.... 😕

    DICTIONARY id·i·ot /ˈidēət/ noun INFORMAL a stupid person. ARCHAIC a person of low intelligence. As this person clearly has not been given the intel of the situation, by his own admission, he is a person of low intelligence. For what it’s worth, I agree with MG that he is attempting to be deceptive by downplaying the situation. But what else can he do and still hope to get re-elected? How can anyone objectively assess this situation and vote for him (or especially the mayor!) ever again?

    LAPD Budget

    - Closest I have found. And honestly, it’s all going to come down to whether the officer is justified in shooting someone resisting arrest, under the influence, and using a taser in the process of trying to escape. As usual, the answer to that question greatly depends on your aligned attitude towards current events.

    LAPD Budget

    Hmmmm. It has been reported extensively that crime rates have been getting better for quite some time.... If you are speaking to the tensions between police and minorities not getting any better, perhaps we should look to a broader societal problem rather than placing blame on law enforcement directly?

    LAPD Budget

    I have heard these same ideas tossed around for decades. So, if we will take away some of the department budget for the guys who are overworked, under paid, overly stressed, and expected to make life changing decisions in the blink of an eye on a daily basis then that should solve all those issues...? By either taking pay from the guys already working massive amounts of overtime just to make ends meet OR by removing the tools used to keep them safe each day we can solve the issue? If Batman would just quit being so scary then all the criminals would stop being so bad! Is there a chance.... just a small chance... maybe... possibly... that this idea is an attempt to buy votes from poverty stricken, blighted areas of certain cities via redistribution of taxpayer funds? And that those same cities’ politicians who promote this idea are the very ones already at fault for the poor distribution of these funds thereby being responsible for the very poverty stricken areas in the first place? Sure, let’s blame it on the icky tactical-styled uniforms and weapons utilized to keep those officers safe from the crime infested rat holes created by the corrupt, democrat leaders of those areas. {Whoops. Was I not supposed to say that? Were we still pretending that “both sides are equal” or two sides of the same coin?}
  14. Soapbox - Is this the one the mainstream media controls? The one that many on the right consider to be highly compromised? The one termed by the US President as “fake news?” Ballot box - Is this the one where there have been rampant reports of dead people voting, out of state people voting illegally, and many others are starting to become skeptical of their legitimacy? Jury box - Is this the one where appointed judges with agendas have tainted the confidence of many people of having a “fair” trial? The thing is that I AGREE with you. By the same token, I can also understand the frustrations of those who feel that, like the Nephites of old, we might be getting to a point where we can no longer be governed by law as our laws are becoming corrupted. Helaman 5:2 For as their laws and their governments were established by the voice of the people, and they who chose evil were more numerous than they who chose good, therefore they were ripening for destruction, for the laws had become corrupted.
