I am glad that Mitt Romney asked someone like Kenneth Hutchins to offer the
opening prayer. It is much more appropriate for him to ask Hutchins who has no
political resume than otherwise. I am sure that the news media will look at this
the same way.
And this is "Breaking News" because??? Wasn't our nation founded on
Christian beliefs. If prayer is "Breaking News" than we are in serious
This is "breaking news"???
Massachusetts's? Romeny? What happened to proofreading? DeseretNews, get a
grip. You're embarrassing yourself. I usually send feedback like this
direct to the author, but there's no contact information for Jeff Benedict.
We should be appreciative of the good news that this brings and not that someone
was killed, murdered or raped. That is what yellow journalism is and this is
great news that prayer is still part of our society, especially in Utah. God
gave us agency and the world has too much news that is not good. I will take
good news any day. After living in Central and South America, Asia, Europe and
even travelling to Africa and living in a variety of states in the United States
of America and seeing the sensationalism people try to make of news and make it
appear enticing and ready for the six o'clock news, this type of breaking
news is worthwhile. Some want everything to be ready for headline
types of news in a different way than letting us know who is praying at the GOP
national convention. Prayer can be in many forms and in many forums but in this
type of scenario of a Presidential and National Elections for all members of the
House of Representatives and one-third of the Senators, it is an important
election for people to vote in. Thank you DN for breaking news
@ Red Corvette. Why yes, it would be so much better if hired campaign staff
called Mitt's dear friend to invite him to pray at the convention. That
would so improve the campaign. /sarcasm
Right on, Mitt!
Hmm! I didn't read anything in this article about this (Prayer) being
"breaking news". I'm excited DN reported something good to read.
Red CorvetteSACRAMENTO, CAIt would behoove Romney to get a
professional political staff instead of relying on his sons and family members.
Perhaps that is the problem with his whole campaign. They are just too
politically naive.Hmmm. Well, doesn't Obama have a professional
political staff? How then do you explain the problems with his administration
I knew Ken Hutchins for many years when my wife and I lived in Boston. He is an
excellent choice, and am excited to see him at the convention next week. Was
saddened to hear about his cancer though. Best of luck President Hutchins!
Integrity, honesty, character, and all the code of conduct and ethics is what
politics should be, not lying, cheating, stealing and lack of ethics. It is a
shame that Chicago is known for those types of deceit in their political arena.
The team of rivals came because of the Lincoln nomination and they were crucial
to the success of the country through the Civil War timeframe. This bunch now
is doing the opposite of uniting for the success of the country. Divide and
conquer is not what they should be doing at any cost. This country was meant to
have people such as the Founding Fathers who gave their all for the country,
heart, soul and mind to further the divine destiny of life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness. 99 percent of those who have come to our country for 250
years have wanted a better life through the hard work. A land of opportunity
with freedoms that no other country has enjoyed is what people want. The
unfortunate aspect is that some have put their lives on auto-pilot and let
others do their guidance plan for them. They let others decide for them, not
God and study.
Amen. Enough said!
Nice, but why is this news?
In a world of bad news at every front and people who label news as bad, it is a
refreshing moment to have good news about people who have led good lives in a
world of "trouble".Thank you, Deseret News, for you
publishing great good news. We need all the prayers that we can get in
Re: Red Corvette SACRAMENTO, CA"They are just too politically
naive."Let's wait until November 6th to see how politically
naive the voters are. There is no question as to who people that that
don't want to work and think others owe them a living will vote for. A
growing number of people are dissatisfied with our current administration and
think its time for a change.
Serve with a guy in a Bishopric and you get to be nervous in front of millions
