  1. from the closing line on the wiki article:

    “When families are in financial trouble the bishop is responsible for making sure that their basic needs are met. He can do this by helping them create a budget and debt reduction plan, providing temporary assistance or simply giving them advice”

  2. My mormon friend and I discussed this very topic a few months back.

    Which is why we’re laughing at all these “The Romney’s are out of touch” news stories.

    Mind you, the same mormon friend who’s in charge of arranging any moving service needs for less fortunate members of the church.

    Male members will voluntarily show up with trucks and help with the move.

  3. I like how Billy Graham’s daughter said we should not focus on the differences in religion, but on the differences in how two men would lead the country.

    We’ve seen how one of these men has been running the country and where he and his minions are trying to take it.

    I am setting religious differences aside, and am in full support of Mitt Romney for President.

    I am, and have been for quite some time, one of the dreaded “Evangelical Christian Fundamentalists”. I fully know the many differences between my beliefs and the Mormons, and am still here to say that we must vote Obama out, and Romney in.

    May God bless America.

  4. I came home last night to find a Mormon Missionary in my living room dripping from the rain, and another in my bathroom bleeding in the sink. It turns out one of them biffed it on the bike and the Mrs. took the poor things in, and help patch the one up. They were so cute and all alone, but we couldn’t keep them so I took them along with their bikes back home in the truck.

  6. How’s this actually helping people in need stack up with being a “community organizer?”

    Joebandmember (3): exactly, and ditto. I do not like the LDS thing, and how I feel about that is completely irrelevant in this situation.

  7. I like Mormons. I especially like their sense of clan and community.
    Every Mormon I know personally are kind generous and good people. I like their moral values.

  8. Me too Headmissey. Especially those Mormon ladies I bought drinks for in the back alleys of Salt Lake City, when deployed there with my squadron at the local Air Force base…… (one of my pilots asked me a grand qwestshun, “Skipper, what do you call unmarried polygamy?” I replied, “You don`t…”

  10. I was raised LDS, haven’t been active goin’ on 20+ years now, but I know that I want to be around LDS types when the SHTF, cuz they’ve got crisis management down to an artform.

    BTW I don’t know if Ann’s ever been Relief Society President, but if she has, damn that’s a management position if ever there was one. The Wiki doesn’t have a breakdown of the local job, but they are responisble for managing the women of the ward, and do things like help prep for weddings, funerals, and providing for those in the ward who need help. When there is an illness, birth, death the women of the ward will provide meals, child care & cleaning help for the families. When I had my last child the local ward (where I don’t go) called to offer help, and brought us a couple of dinners.

  13. I once threw a couple of elders out of my house. I had invited them in to share with me the “fullness of the everlasting gospel” but one of the missionaries was a dick so I asked them to leave.

  14. I doubt Romney will turn the White House into an LDS temple any more than JFK set up a hot-line to the Vatican.

    I still don’t like the fact that he tried an early version of ObamaCare (or HillaryCare) in Massachusetts (and it failed), but maybe he’s the kind of guy who thinks, well, that didn’t work, lets try something else.

    Likely not. He didn’t turn Bain into one did he?

    Oh the other hand, The One, who has previously likened Himself FDR, Reagan, Lincoln, Gandhi, and I forget who all else has now, at last, been likened to Jesus by his awed wife, who is finally proud of America.

    E.g.: “This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/michelle-obama-president-has-brought-us-out-dark-and-light_640374.html

    WTF?

    Anyhow, is “coming to light” the same thing as “being brought into the light?”

    Maybe so: Fast-and-Furious-gate, Solyndra-gate, GSA-gate, Secret-Service-Gate, and oh so many more….

    I’m kind of hoping there will be more, new light every single week until the election. There’s certainly enough material to support that.
