What Do You Know About My Underwear . . . And Would You Like to Know More?

What Do You Know About My Underwear . . . And Would You Like to Know More?

Clearly this is not our preferred method for introducing a conversation about our faith, and yet, this is a topic of prurient interest that has come to the forefront of many non-LDS minds.  A few years ago, I had a brief Facebook conversation with a former high school friend who wanted to know what colours […]

Post Election Hope

November 8, 2012
ObamaVictory2012

After the election results were announced, I was surprised by the number of people posting doom and gloom.  I read comments about how the outcome showed that we had lost faith in God as a country.  People talked of Armageddon and the Mayan Calendar.  You would have thought the world was ending.  To me, it […]

Sexism and Political Hypocrisy

Sexism and Political Hypocrisy

In the October General Conference, E. Cook cautioned against political extremism that supersedes and erodes testimony and commitment to the church: Many who are in a spiritual drought and lack commitment . . .  have made unwise choices. Some are casual in their observance of sacred covenants. Others spend most of their time giving first-class […]

What God says about how we Should Vote

What God says about how we Should Vote

In a revelation to Joseph Smith, God says (in Doctrine and Covenants section 98:4-10):  And now, verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them.  And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle […]

Did Mormon Fasting Create a Romney Debate Victory?

Did Mormon Fasting Create a Romney Debate Victory?

Rumors of a widescale Mormon fast prior to the presidential debate were rampant on Facebook and even in some news articles.  I particularly enjoyed Pat Bagley’s cartoon on the topic.  In light of the much touted debate bounce that has resulted in a game-changer according to recent polling, I wonder if some of those faithful […]

Obama vs Romney: A Mormon Dilemma

September 19, 2012
ObamaRomney

We’re in the home stretch of the US Presidential elections.  Hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent to try to pursuade voters to vote one way or another.  We have a Mormon running for the first time against a first-time African-American president.  We have multiple issues – massive debt, economic problems, wars and rumors of wars […]

Did Romney “Bain” the UK?

Did Romney “Bain” the UK?

Last night I had a dream about my wallet.  The external coin purse on my wallet has a zip closure, and in the dream, the zipper was broken in both directions, and I had no way to keep the coins inside.  And there were so many coins.  They were spilling everywhere, and I realized I […]

What Would Pres. Monson Ask Pres. Romney To Do?

What Would Pres. Monson Ask Pres. Romney To Do?

Critics of Romney have worried that his Mormonism will affect him in his office as President of the United States.  This concern has been raised from several different angles, and becomes an even bigger question as his tax records reveal his tithing contributions.  To those who lack the context, donating 10% of your income to […]

What’s So Maybe About Mitt?

November 1, 2011
What’s So Maybe About Mitt?

Wow, people really do not love Mitt.  A recent Onion article satirized his failure to connect with voters (and staffers!) emotionally.  He can’t even get a break on Google! (Type in “Romney can win” and it will ask if you meant to type “Romney can’t win”).  Is it his Mormonism?  His politics?  His polished good […]
