Re: Thread Deleted

Alright, Brian has weighed in on the situation, and says "No problem discussing it."

Kinda thought he would say that. Will move it back to the proper forum.

Since this thread basically continued the discussion, I will go ahead and merge it with the original.

Re: Do you speed?

I usually maintain the speed limit and up to 5 over. I always stay in the most right lane whenever there are multiple lanes on a road. What really iriitates me though is even with going 5 over the speed limit in the most right lane, people still come up on me going super fast and then act annoyed t...

Re: Thread Deleted

Not confusing the two words. The actual quote from the report is: It names a bishop who is not a very public person and accuses him of "hidden agenda to bring about a discussion on changing church doctrine". This seems to be hearsay. cyclOps did provide some quotes, but there is nothing about changi...

Re: Thread Deleted

What could be considered heresay is the notion that the bishop has an agenda. Now that may very well be the case... or it could be that the LGBT group is just using the poor guy and he's doing his best with the situation. Things get blown out of proportion and twisted on the web, and not everything ...

Re: Thread Deleted

According to MANY of the comments on this Bishop's Facebook page, dozens of people (who are also pro-gay, like the Bishop) have already sent copies of the 3rd-hour Sunday meeting to their own Bishops and stake presidents - so anyone who is trying to keep this "quiet", for whatever lame and unrealis...

Off topic, sorry, but what happened to the Apostasy in Riverton thread?
I deleted it. It got reported. Apparently, at least one person thought it against forum policy to discuss a bishop in such a manner, regardless if it was true or not. I was inclined to agree.

Temporarily Locked, b/c someone reported it. This isn't about a public figure, which apparently can be construed as going against the forum policy. Pending thread review by Brian and fellow Moderators.

Re: School Shooting in FL

I think the solution might not be so much to ban certain weapons, but to instead unban all the weapons and instead require people to have licenses for weapons the same way we do with cars. Cars are dangerous devices, right? You can easily use one of the big vehicles, and mow down a bunch of people....

Re: School Shooting in FL

statistically speaking, as far as violence around the world is concerned, we aren't significantly worse off than we were 20-30 years ago. The difference is that the common people are more aware of and exposed to acts of violence via the internet.

While these things may be used for the devil's purposes, they can also be used for good purposes as well. Like most things on this earth, I do not think that 5G and Artificial Intelligence are inherently evil.
