    NeedleinA reacted to Just_A_Guy in David Archuleta Reveals He Is Part Of LGBTQIA+ Community   
    On a personal note, I certainly wish Archuleta the best.
    On a broader cultural note:  I wonder whether we will ever see the day when men who publicly commit to chastity while maintaining that their attraction to children was God-created and God-approved, can get the same degree of sympathy and support and acceptance as men like Archuleta who publicly commit to chastity while maintaining that their attraction to other men was God-created and God-approved.
    I rather don’t think we will.
    Because I think that in our heart of hearts we all know that when someone says “this is how I was created and God doesn’t mind”—they are, consciously or not, laying the foundation to justify a future course of tangible action.

    NeedleinA reacted to Traveler in Encouraging Temple recommend renewals?   
    Anciently the concept and expression of righteousness is someone that makes and kept covenants with G-d.  Thus we should understand that the righteous are the worthy temple recommend holders.  As one reads the sacred scriptures I believe that they can better understand warning and blessing with this understanding of maintaining a current temple recommend.  Without any doubt - I believe that in the parable of the 10 virgins that all of those that had oil for their lamps (in our modern age) are worthy temple recommend holders.  That for sure those 5 without oil - not one was a "worthy" current temple recommend holder.

    I can't speak for @NeedleinA  but I can speak for my own concerns.  I do not know what the FDA skipped to grant EUA... but the fact that they skipped something to grant the EUA is evident in the fact that it is a EUA and not a normal approval.
    We are told to trust the science and trust the experts... So should we be trusting the science and experts when they say the full process is necessary to insure safety or should we be trusting the science and experts now when they say the full process isn't necessary?    Or to greatly simplify... where they lying to us then?  Or are they lying to us now?  And if we catch them in any lie why would we trust them at all?
    And if they weren't lying before and they are not lying now... that means the current vaccine didn't get all the checks it should (aka an emergency shortening of the process) then it become completely understandable for people to say... No thanks I'll wait for the full completion as a matter of protecting there own personal health.

    The EUA use vs. full FDA approval, is only one factor among several reasons why I will continue to decline the vaccine(s).
    If EUA is synonymous with full approval, then they should label them as full approval and remove this obstacle for many hesitant individuals.
    If they are not synonymous, then we can't pretend that EUA products are just as good as fully approved products that have had longer follow up periods for efficacy.
    Q: Anyone know if I got the jab today, how long would I be protected for?

    This, among other reasons, is why many of us won't take it. I naively already thought everyone knew they weren't approved by the FDA.  (Thanks Facebook, Twitter, Youtube for suppressing things.) This is the argument about being involved with the largest trial test ever conducted on humankind.

    People have said that the vaccines are "Fully Approved" by the FDA.  Apparently not.

    The two m-RNA vaccines are through all the process except the last:  One has submitted papers for final approval.  The other is getting the paperwork ready.
    I haven't seen anything on the final approval for J&J traditional vaccine.
    All, so far, have only been approved for emergency use authorization.

    What are you insinuating? Halldóra is NOT a spy. She is NOT trained in lethal bladework and poisoning drinks. She most certainly does not use her seductive charms to learn industrial and intellectual property trade secrets for a clandestine multinational cabal based outside of Reykjavik. I mean, come on! Have you ever heard such nonsense? Please.

    Years ago there was a Stake Pres. Counselor, doctor, who: had every part of the temple recommend memorized, very direct and never broke eye contract... ever!
    By time it was done I confessed to being a Russian spy and for stealing a lolli-pop in the 3rd grade.
    AWKWARD to say the least.
    He was a family friend too. Soon as the interview was over, poof! right back to being his normal ol' self. He did it with everyone and all of us jumped for joy if they got the other counselor instead.
    Good times.
