This couldn't be better news!

Jim DeMint:

“When the U.S. Senate brought the Amnesty bill back up this week, they declared war on the American people. This act created a crisis of confidence in their government. Thankfully, the American people won today,” said Senator DeMint. “This is remarkable because it shows that Americans are engaged and they care deeply about their country. They care enough for their country to get mad and to fight for it, and that’s the most important thing of all. Americans made phone calls and sent letters, and convinced the Senate to stop this bill.”

“The Senate rejected this bill and the heavy-handed tactics used to ram it through. Americans do not want more of the same – amnesty and broken promises on the border. Americans want legislation to be written in public – not in secret – and they want Congress to engage in an open and fair debate.”

“There is a better way forward without this bill. The President has said that the border security measures can be implemented over the next 18 months, and they can be done under current law. Now the Administration needs to prove it and stop holding border security hostage for amnesty.”

“Once we have secured the border and restored trust with the American people, we can begin to take additional steps.”

He's absolutely right. And, now it's about time to turn on leeches like Harry Reid and Bennett R-UT, and eliminate their treasonous carcasses from government. Maybe we can't eliminate them from the Church but we sure as heck can boot them from office. Never, ever forget what they tried to do to our county.

O.K., here's a question for all you LDS amnesty supporters

Gordon B. Hinckley stated, “I wish to state categorically that this Church has nothing whatever to do with those practicing polygamy. They are not members of this Church. Most of them have never been members. They are in violation of the civil law. They know they are in violation of the law. They are subject to its penalties. The Church, of course, has no jurisdiction whatever in this matter. If any of our members are found to be practicing plural marriage, they are excommunicated, the most serious penalty the Church can impose. Not only are those so involved in direct violation of the civil law, they are in violation of the law of this Church.”

This is true, thankfully. But I ask you, how are illegals any different? They are in violation of the civil law. They know they are in violation of the law. They are subject to its penalties. The Church, of course has no jurisdiction whatever in the matter.

Why doesn't it also follow then that if members are found to be in this country illegally that they are disciplined by the Church? I'm not saying they must be excommunicated but clearly they cannot be found to be in good standing because they are in direct violation of the civil law and they are without question in violation of the law of this Church unless committing crimes, demonstrating disdain for the 12th Article of Faith, lying, stealing and defrauding are considered somehow in compliance with the law of the Church.

We should not be baptizing unrepentant such people any more than we should baptize an unrepentant polygamist.

On Another Issue

Have you ever noticed that sometimes Aaronic priesthood shows up at Church improperly dressed or groomed for administration of the sacrament? Still, they wind up doing it anyway and when a correction is attempted all you ever hear are lame excuses accompanied by references to worthiness as if worthiness is the sole limiting factor. Try to imagine a worthy high priest dressed as Bozo the Clown administering the sacrament. Hard to imagine isn't it? That's because a worthy High Priest has more respect for the institution than to ever make such an attempt. I note also that inside the pamphlets for Duty to God every picture of a Young Man performing his priesthood duties shows a Young Man properly dressed white shirt, tie and dress slacks with shoes. I note also that in our foyer ther eis a large pictorial book titled: "The Mission" which shows missionary work and members throughout the world. In every instance when it comes to pictures of priesthood administering in their duties, it's well groomed young men in white shirts, ties, shoes and dress slacks, even with members living in poverty in huts and dirt floors. So why leadership here in the USA permits sloppily dressed, long haired, sneaker and cargo pants wearing young men to administer the sacrament is a question without any acceptable answer.

Isn't it ironic that the same young men who show up at a Stake dance here in the USA improperly attired are not admitted until they change their clothes so they meet the dress standard for the dance but when they show up improperly attired or groomed for sacrament administration they are allowed to proceed. Something seriously amiss here.

Now, lest you think I am arguing for some sort of uniform, I'm not. But at a minimum the standards in For the Strength of Youth ought to be adhered to which means conservative dress and appearance avoiding extremes as the word "extremes" applies in the LDS community not in the world. There is no reason why for instance they should not all wear white shirts ( or possibly a pastel dress shirt) and ties with shoes (not sneakers) and dress slacks not jeans or cargo pants.
So the question for the day is: Which should require the greater attention to dress standards, a dance or administration of the sacrament? If you get this wrong you need help.

Illegals Lack Integrity

Spencer W. Kimball said:

"Integrity in individuals and corporate bodies is not to ask, “What will others think of me, and my practices?” but, "Is it proper? Is it right? Would the Master approve?" … Integrity in man should bring inner peace, sureness of purpose, and security in action. Lack of it brings the reverse: disunity, fear, sorrow, unsureness."

This is precisely what we see with illegals in our nation and why we should not be baptizing criminals or permitting their attendance at the temple before they repent for what they have done, they utterly lack integrity. Because they have done wrong, intentionally and do not seek to repent for it they suffer fear, sorrow and unsureness, and rightly so.

General Handbook of Instructions and Illegals

Under the Discipline provisions of the General Handbook of Instructions the following is called "serious transgression":

"serious transgression is defined as a deliberate and major offense against morality. It includes (but is not limited to) attempted murder, rape, forcible sexual abuse, spouse abuse, intentional serious physical injury of others, adultery, fornication, homosexual relations, deliberate abandonment of family responsibilities, robbery, burglary, theft, embezzlement, sale of illegal drugs, fraud, perjury, and false swearing. "

It also says: "A disciplinary council must be held for a member who demonstrates a pattern of serious transgressions, especially if prior transgressions have resulted in Church discipline. "


"A disciplinary council must be held for a member who commits a serious transgression that is widely known. "

Hmm... since all illegals are here under a pattern of behavior which includes: false swearing and fraud -any documents that are false such as fake IDs and fake SSNs or other false documentation necessary to obtain a job, and since they are not legally entitled to work here and receive the benefits of this country, they are defrauding employers and stealing governmental services and benefits, it is pretty clear that to the extent any such are members of the Church they should be disciplined by the Church. As the status of many of these folks is in fact widely known in the Church this constitutes yet another reason for Church discipline.

Clearly this is behavior which is not consistent with membership in the Church. It occurs to me that the scriptures state that for the purposes of salvation all men are required to enter in at the strait gate and that repentance precedes baptism. We are all to show by our walk and talk that we are worthy of it ...unless of course we happen not to be citizens of the U.S. in which case, fraud, perjury, false swearing, theft are no longer matters implicating worthiness.

Mr. Bush and all you shamnesty types need to listen up:

The American People Demand Enforcement of Existing Law! The Status Quo Is Indeed unacceptable, we demand enforcement! As for LDS bleeding hearts get real. People who violate criminal statutes intentionally and strive to cover it up and continue the violations are no more likely to obey the laws of God than they are to obey the laws of man and as such are unworthy of membership in the Church. Let them first accept the first four principles of the Gospel the second of which is repentance, after that they can be baptized and then accept the 12th Article of Faith and show it by their lawful compliance with the moral and constitutional laws of the land.

Lunatic Fringe

This is a song dedicated to Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy and every amnesty loving anti-American loon out there. Of course you liberals are the limp wristed types winding up on the bottom where you belong.

New York State Gets It!!!

In an excellent move reflecting the fraudulent nature of illegals the New York State Court of Appeals ruled that illegals can't have driver licenses in part on security and identity issues.
