    From where are you hearing these moving stories? Was it from MSNBC, NBC or CNN radio? How were these people moved? Weren't they already religious before they arrived?

    No, it wasn't a Tea Party rally and it wasn't advertised as so. It was advertised as recognizing the troops, not a religious revival meeting from a man who claimed to have a vision. There are elements of religious belief in some members of the Tea Party, but definitely not all. I only know what I saw. Admittedly it was hot and not a great day to listen to speeches, particuliarly rambling ones and that may have effected the reaction. But I heard most of the speech and I did not find it all that simulating.

    Rupert Murdock must be wetting himself with excitement over this one.

    I don't give a hoot if Christian Conservatives unite. They can form up like Voltron and go stomping around like Godzilla for all I care.

    That's why I said "any effort on his part to organize and guide Christian conservatives."

    My problem's with the circus clown, not with the clergy.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I left the Church eons ago, but it continued to bother me that I didn't have a suitable retort (or the will to research one) for that nonsense.

    Thanks much. I love to put it in someone else's face when they're spanking on someone needlessly, even if I disagree with that someone.

    A boy in my daughter's class was pestering her repeatedly about accepting Jesus as her personal savior and being born again. I told her to tell him that she was born okay the first time.

    I swear, most religious disagreements are the sort that can be reduced to:

    "My dad can beat up your dad!"

    "Oh yeah? Well MY dad can strike YOUR dad down with a lightning bolt!"

    "MY dad can kill YOUR dad's firstborn! That's YOU!"

    "MY dad can strap YOUR dad to a rock and make a bird eat out his guts out EVERY DAY for all time!"

    And yet so many people listen to him and hang on his every word. That's the scary part.

    The way I hear it, LDS continue their work in Heaven. There is no rest, not while there are billions more to convert in the afterlife that hadn't been converted in their first life.
