[rolling eyes]

I'm sorry, I still have some venting to do, I guess.

From LDS Church headquarters:

The Church calls on those involved in the debate over same sex marriage to act in a spirit of mutual respect and civility towards each other. No one on either side of the question should be vilified, intimidated, harassed or subject to erroneous information.

No vilification, eh? Like, "Gays marriage will result in the downfall of society and the fundamental understanding of a family; it is an evil institution inspired by Satan." (See various Ensigns and statements made by LDS General Authorities.)

No intimidation, eh? Like, "If your child enters into a gay relationship, you should not allow his/her partner into your family." (See various Ensigns and statements made by LDS General Authorities.)

No harassment, eh? Like, oh, I don't know, the entire Proposition 8 campaign.

No erroneous information, eh? Like, "Legalizing gay marriage will force religions to accept homosexuality, will force private adoption agencies to adopt to gay couples, has the same rights as domestic partnerships and civil unions." (See the official LDS Church's site concerning Proposition 8.)

The term "Smiling Eyes" comes to mind.

Maybe Ugly Betty will help calm me down.



  1. Oh gracious. What a statement. Vent all you need. :/

  2. DAMN, FART, HELL!!!


    Thanks, Amanda!

  3. It's too amazing. Is the PR department just trying now to open the wound wider? They can try to step into the legal matters of our homes, hope to annul our marriages, and insult us and our children, and then pretend like... eh, never mind. I already went off on isocrat about their asking for our respect earlier today.

    It deserves a stronger word than fart :-).

  4. I read that news release yesterday, and that same exact sentence annoyed me to no end! I came home and read it to Scott.

    nothing erroneous? B.S.!

    (I hope you don't mind if I vent a little, too!)

    Hang in there!

  5. yeah.

    more and more it pisses me off, too, chedner.
