No Pictures, Just Opinions!
I guess that's the end of football blogs for awhile. Shall I go back to food? Yes, except that I left my camera in a closet in Santaquin, Utah, so I haven't taken any pictures of food I've made, or anything else for that matter.
I could talk about Tom Hanks' ridiculous comment about Mormons who supported Proposition 8:
"...and the truth is a lot of Mormons gave a lot of money to the church to make Prop-8 happen," he told Tarts. "There are a lot of people who feel that is un-American, and I am one of them. I do not like to see any discrimination codified on any piece of paper, any of the 50 states in America..." (click here for the story).
LAME! I have my personal opinions about Prop 8 itself. IT IS a MORAL issue and it is something worth standing up for. "Marriage is ordained of God between man and woman" (see The Family: A Proclamation to the World). PERIOD! And expressing this opinion is as American as it gets!
I get that he's trying to say that it's discriminatory and that's why he feels it's "un-American," however, this is not the case. No one is disallowing certain lifestyle choices. Preserving marriage as a sacred institution is not discrimination. I'm sick of this amoral society that we live in which is full of relativism and justifications. I know that their is such a thing as ABSOLUTE TRUTH (see the above link).
Let me just say that I believe in the freedoms of America. I believe in freedom of expression. I also believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. And I also believe the most fundamental part of "the gospel" is learning to love one another! I'm not discriminating or hating; I'm expressing my opinion. Everyone deserves to be treated like the child of God they are, but marriage is a sacred institution...and God will not be mocked!
That should be a good enough post for now. Not your usual, eh?
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! I've done a lot of reading about him (I recommend his biography by Clayborne Carson), and I for one am convinced that he was a great man who did many great things! Look how far our country as come!
