It’s convoluted and not quite ready for prime time, but if you’d like to understand something about where I’m coming from, I’d like to invite you to read this post:
And before you take a gander, let me just say, I agree.
If my side ever intends to effectively respond to tactics like the RNC’s “72-Hour Task Force” … we’re gonna need to start thinking about showing up for church in the weeks and days before regular church-goers are getting admonished to get out and vote.
That said, please give up the delusion that you’re talking to someone who ever underestimated the Mormons in all of this. If anything, I’ve spent the last four months railing on my political allies re the stupidity of ignoring the power of the LDS ground game.
It’s impressive. Has been for the past three election cycles.
Go on thinking that I’m scum because I dirty myself with the nitty-gritty of our political processes. Electoral politics is what it is and I’m not gonna apologize for participating in the inherently vulgar aspects of a system of governance that I continue to believe in, even when things don’t go my way.]]>
Your welcome to attend my ward’s fast & testimony meeting. They need a wake up call as to what the adversary will try and do to disrupt the ultimate spread of the gospel. Kinda of like punching a beehive (i crack myself up. . .but I digress)
News will spread quickly of the event, thereby creating even more forward movement for the church. Remember, when you kick a Mormon, they do not go down the stairs, they go up the stairs.
Let’s get together and talk about a good time to make this happen.]]>
Perhaps, but who ever thought that we’d arrive at the point of being able to actually test this hypothesis?
Not me. I guess now we’ll see.]]>
If you follow your previous statement to its logical conclusion, no one could ever advocate laws against any behavior, as there will always be someone who disagrees with you and wants to practice that behavior.
Logically, however, there are probably behaviors that even you want to have proscribed (laws against polluting for example?) and I suspect you do not think you are “forcing your view on other people” when you advocate such laws. You just think you are trying to make your world better. That’s what Mormons think they are doing on Prop 8. You can certainly disagree with them, but not for the reasons you stated above (at least, not if you want to be taken seriously).]]>
And isn’t it a shame – $15,000,000+ donated by mormons to make sure others are forced to live by their code; just imagine how much good that $15,000,000 could have done in the world. How many children would that have fed? People need to get their priorities straight.]]>
Probably a case of overestimating the amount of support in typical CA congregations.]]>
