Importance of Form over Substance

How issues are explained to (or avoided) converts is important. What they are being fed is much more appetizing when it is called Creamed Chip Beef on Toast rather that the more colloquial S**t on a Shingle. For those raised in the Church, being fed S**t on a Shingle is not a problem.

Whichever term is used, apologists would suggest using Jell-O salad as the accompanying graphic. Hope that clears things up via analogous metaphors.

The return of Trump heralds much for those followers of the Age of Aquarius. Elves vs Reindeer, soon it will be a Santa red wave... the likes of which you've never seen. Those boys and girls who have been conspiring against Santa and giving FAKE NEWS will soon learn the wrath of SANTA!!! How much news time are Fox and Friends willing to devote to this conflict?

Anyway, it will soon be December and thoughts turn to holiday eggnog. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bsHOxQtBW4 Eggnog: A Christmas History

What if the Council of the Fifty had decided to relocate to Vancouver Island rather than the Great Basin? Instead of making pacts with the West Desert Aliens, the Saints may have become a maritime people controlling the fishing industry of the Pacific Northwest and potentially the oil pipelines of the Yukon and Alaska. They would still have been forced to give up their beloved polygamy but may have started polygamy colonies in Thailand and Borneo.

Solution to End the Brethren/LGBTQ War

I think I may have a solution for the Brethren ending their longstanding war against the LGBTQ community and still save face.

The Brethren could announce they are ceasing their hostilities in the Temporal Realm, but are using their full spell-casting abilities in the hereafter to prohibit same-sex marriage and handholding. They could even announce the creation of an LGBTQ-repellant forcefield around the Celestial Kingdom, and I doubt anyone outside of Mormonism would bat an eyebrow.

Musket Fire and obedience oaths could still occur at BYU as a pressure relief valve.

Does this sound workable?

Utah Senate Race 2022

This November Sen Mike Lee, the Trump-endorsed candidate, will face off against Evan McMullin, of the Independent Mormon Party. The Democrats declined to nominate a candidate and decided to back McMullin as a much better alternative to the Trump endorsement. To give you an idea about Lee, his best friend in the Senate is Ted Cruz, but he is happy to carry a bucket for Trump anywhere on the grounds of the Versailles Palace. Anyway, all this confirms is that Utah is unlike anywhere else on Earth (but does share some similarities to Oblibish of the Kolob Federation).

Lee explains the LDS belief that in an early dispensation, Ronald Reagan rode on a velociraptor firing a machine gun. It is meant to show Mankind being booted out of the Garden of Eden for excessive credulity.

Here is a YouTube video that has a random encounter with a couple of LDS missionaries at the beginning. For me, it was as though a bird watcher walked out his front door and encountered a blue-footed booby or seeing a Nephite mounted on the back of a tapir. I mean, such things do exist in the wild... but out your front door. What a rarity.
