To The Caravan Moves On,The doctrines of both the Southern Baptists
and the Mormons are essentially the same. That is why there is no reason for
Southern Baptists to join Mormonism. Featherstone was a soft-hearted, naive man.
Don't place a lot of stock in his "prophecy".
RE: Not_Scared | 2:18 p.mONe thing you FAILED to mention,it was a DEMOCRAT president that allowed the cherokee removal, "trail of
tears",also the deprivation of rights to the mormons, that ultimately lead the extermination order and the kicking out of
mormons in the middle of winter, which lead to them moving out the country to
what is now Utah and mountain west.funny thing is, now a lot
non-mormons and anti-mormons do not want the mormons in utah to have a voice
there either,if it wasn't FDR or Wilson and now Obama doing
something horrible, and anti-consitutionalit was a past democrats
Why is the FAR LEFt so vested in attacking state rights? why are
they so sttrongly behind consolidating all power into the federal government,and having one big brother central government,quite
anithesis to "liberalism"something to ponder.
Hey Socalmon (10:43PM) - FYI, I've been told of a prophecy by Vaughn
J. Featherstone that the day will come when the Southeast, the "Bible Belt" of
Christianity, will baptize more new members than all the rest of North America
combined.Having served my mission in southern Lousiana, Mississippi
and Alabama, as well as having several military assignments in the Southeast
(Columbia, MS and Valdosta, GA), I can honestly say I believe this prophecy.
Lots and LOTS and L-O-T-S of truly good, decent Christians down there who don't
have the fulness of the Gospel only because they currently don't know where to
find it. I met SO many nice people down there, it was refreshing and highly
invigorating to learn that in the battle for Christ and goodness, the Latter-day
Saints are not alone.The south will indeed blossom as a rose!
Thank goodness the South is eventually getting a learning curve towards
introspection of their past. It will become even more heartening to see
less one-on-one prejudice disappear towards Mormons, in the rest of Dixie
someday. I believe the barriers will begin to evaporate more rapidly, as more
prominent Mormons are shown on the American landscape, from the likes of such
members as diverse as Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), to Glenn Beck.There
are so many wonderful people in the South.
When I first saw this I thought this group was honoring Governor Boggs! Kit
Bond does seem like a more plausible choice. I think the same year the Idaho
Legislature repealed a law that had been on the books for a hundred years
denying the vote to Mormons.
ER in AF | 2:00 p.m Read about Jackson, the Cherokee Nation, the Supreme Court
decision and what happened and see what I mean about state's rights.
In citing state's rights, it seems you are suggesting that a state has the right
to make ANY law according to their desire. In fact, that is not true. A state
cannot create a law to kill Canadians, Episcopalians or socialists. A state
cannot enact a law that is clearly contrary to the US Constitution; a document
that makes us united in the United States of America.Many
individuals now want to suggest because the federal government does not do
things exactly as they might that state laws can trump ALL federal laws. That
is, at the basic foundational level of our nation, not correct. Moreover, this comes from me, a person in opposition to the current party in
power. Currently I live in a nation in which the opposition candidate for
president was recently imprisoned prior to the coming election. I may not agree
with everything the current US administration does, but I will fight to the
death defending President Obama's right as the freely elected President to rule
under the constitution of the United States of America.
The extermination order is a historical vestige of state's rights. If a
government did this today, federal troops would enter the scene.
