@ Furry1993Sometimes defending against evil requires us to do more
than just express our opinions. If I can legally do something to stop elective
abortion, I will. If I can legally do something to stop same-sex marriage, I
will. That is my right to exercise my agency. There are certainly enough
individuals (even within the Church) who are pushing the other way which is
their right.As a society, we deny agency to others all the time. I
don't have the right to kill my child just because he's inconvenient,
that includes even if I'm in poor health or I can't afford to take
care of him, etc. I fail to see much of a difference just because he's
outside the womb vs inside the womb but I do allow for the Church exceptions.
I'm not allowed to marry my sister even though we're not hurting
anyone else. Why? Because it's the law and it's a good law and I will
do everything in my power to keep it the law because it conforms to my personal
values and moral beliefs. That is my right. Now, substitute same-sex marriage.
George,I don't "know" that the game will run into Sunday. I
really don't think even you "know" that it will. Most games only
last 3 hours so this should be over by 11:00. You just be a good example to your
teens and turn off your TV if it goes to OT and runs over. Enjoy the
Kickoff is at 8. If the game goes into double overtime, then yes, it could go
past midnight, but it's not terribly likely.And it's not
like this is a new thing. In the old WAC days, the Hawaii game for both BYU and
Utah would routinely go much later into the night due to a late start and the
time zone difference.
I am perplexed by the Church-owned school's decision to play football on
Sunday. Everyone knows the Utah game will run into Sunday. Now how do I teach my
teens that their dates must end and they must be home before midnight on
The rivalry is different. To be honest, I don't care that much about
playing Utah anymore. I would rather play other PAC 12 BIG 10 or SEC Schools
than Utah if I had the choice. It sounds like Utah would rather play Northern
Colorado or other Guaranteed Win Games.
