    Here you go again.
    Gotta get married!
    Posting LDS messages to back up what was said at the resent Mormon Conference?
    Wasn't one of the other messages "Be more tolerant of others"?

    If I might respectfully disagree with "Born in Bountiful"... First of all, covering Black-related issues isn't racist any more than the majority of television focusing on white stuff is racist. It's her show, so why shouldn't she cover things that are of interest to her and her target audience.

    Secondly, it's ridiculous to suggest that her remaining single is due to financial needs. She's a billionaire, and has more money than she can spend in a lifetime. Not everyone wants to be married or feels the need to marry. If she's happy being single, why should that disturb any of us. She's made something of herself, she's enabled a lot of others to succeed and inspired many women to push for success, so why should she be expected to marry just to meet the needs of people she's never even met?

    I think she left a bad example when she started to be such a racist, about 20 years ago. With Opra it is all black all of the time. No one else could get away with it. On not getting married, it has to be about the money and exposure to dividing up the cash that keeps her from getting married.

    It would seem to me a strange way to make a living -- combing through various sources to find a way to condemn people who do not have lds values, so that you can post gossip and judgement about them on DN.

    Oprah should marry, against her own personal wishes, to please a columnist at the Rupert Murdock owned Post?

    What if I wrote that mormons should relax and have a few beers, because I think it is good for the soul? Equally ridiculous and non of my business!

    Jesus did not teach by condemning a person of different beliefs who hurts no one.
