    The LDS is adjudged to be a "conservative" religion. As a Catholic Navy vet, this is so with such as Catholics and Lutherans and Orthodox Jews as well as Orthodox Christians and Evangelicals. I had a good Navy buddy who was LDS. He was very proactive in regard to his marriage. Unfortunately, from analysis of the recent election with Mr.Romney as the standard bearer, there are distinct reflections involved which appear to attack with one swab like Tom Sawyer on the fence. There is no doubt that God is on trial and the country is falling away from belief in God and replacing that belief with the "Gospel according to Snoop Dogg". Churches have very few young people. The ones that attend are viewed as "nerds". The Republican Party is dying out like the Whigs. The Democratic Party has become the anti-party to obliterate privilege and replace it with personal fulfillment. Even Cardinal T Dolan recently raised eyebrows with his comments about "doing things differently". This links to the beliefs of Teilhard de Chardin and what the writings of Malachi Martin linked to world socialism and the unification of church and state.

    My favorite has to be the call of Edward Dube to the 70, since he is the first General Authority from Zimbabwe, and this is the first time there have been two general authorities who are racially African. I should have known he would be once he was announced as released as an area seventy, since he was just called as such last year, but I was too happy about Fred Parker, the first African-American area seventy, to really remember any others, except Moroni Bing Torgan, but he has a cool name combined with probably having been the highest ranking Latter-day Saint in the Brazilian government. Interesting at the same time a former US senator (Gordon Smith) was also called as an area seventy, and then there was Elder Echo Hawk, who was a high ranking official in the Obama administration at the time of his call.

    Amazed at Brother Uchdorf pronunciation and accents in doing so. And love to sustain these brethren. Was disappointed at this part of the meeting which I anticipated would include canonizing (so they can be included in August's print editions) the Family Proclamation and Testimony of the Apostles -- things we all carry around loose in our scriptures -- which would be nice to have added and cross referenced.
