    To the DN moderator I was being sarcastic in my reply to hutterite and my comment was denied so I will try and resubmit. To Hutterite just exactly who are you referring to when you say we are all nationalists here? The new President of UVU is foreigner from the Philippines. No we are not all nationalists here in Utah. Utah is worldwide headquarters of a religion that prides itself in it's worldwide membership.

    Utah is a smart place for the UN venue. Utah is unique with a significant population of men and women who have served overseas with deep personal connections... Its one thing to speak the language, another to share a humble Sunday meal with a family, and understand that "except by the grace of God, there go I". Hopefully it will reinvigorate our collective international role.

    Where much is given, much is expected.

    The Church plays a big part of what Utah has to offer. True religion - to look after the widows and orphans - knows no boundaries or classes.

    Many could learn personally from what the Church does institutionally. Though we may float a little higher in Utah, we don’t yet walk on water . . . (it's the salt - not us).

    The scripture applied justifiably to Temple Square has application with the upcoming UN visit:

    "And it shall come to pass in the last days, when the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." (2 Nephi 12:2-3)

    How did we land this one? We don't like the UN, or what it stands for. We're nationalists, not globalists. Those outside people, they're all foreigners.
