1- Over the years several people have mentioned that it is difficult to navigate both of my blogs. I have now posted a listing that will hopefully make it a little easier to quickly peruse all of the past posts along with a brief description of what they are about. You can view it here. http://thechiefinspector.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/blog-listing.pdf It is not complete yet but I am off to a good start. That web address may change when I update it since it is a pdf
2- I am passionate about “Jury Nullification” and have posted about it here, https://onewhoiswatching.wordpress.com/?s=jury+nullification There is now a wonderful book out about the legal principle of states rights and state nullification http://www.amazon.com/Nullification-Resist-Federal-Tyranny-Century/dp/1596981490 by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. Here is a great speech he gave http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qp5hMiTS2dg and here is a great interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2YaTVRR90g . Here is a comical interview called interview with a zombie that he staged with a friend to show his frustrations in dealing with the way politically correct people try to negate what he is trying to say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrcM5exDxcc
3- There has been quite a bit of drama lately considering the firing of Daniel C. Peterson and his entire staff at FARMS. Apparently, the LDS Church feels that the type of apologetics done by FARMS and Peterson is counterproductive. Some people believe that his treatment of John Dehlin over at Mormon Stories may also have had something to do with it. Bryce Hammond, an LDS Temple Endowment apologist and mindless disciple of Hugh Nibley and Daniel C. Peterson, speaks about how Peterson and many of his apologist cronies have now created the “interpreter” and will continue to do apologetics on their own. You can read about it here- http://www.templestudy.com/2012/08/03/farms-interpreter-journal-mormon-scripture/ . The new Interpreter website is here http://www.mormoninterpreter.com/.
4- The Bible, Book of Mormon and 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants all taught that faith in Christ, repentance and the spiritual rebirth of baptism is all that is required to get into the strait gate that leads to salvation and eternal life. That all changed when the saints fled to Utah and the gospel of Brigham Young was introduced. All of the sudden an additional ordinance was required to get into the strait gate. The ordinance had to do with the Masonic Temple Endowment and the related necessity of marrying multiple wives. Thankfully the church has temporarily stopped practicing polygamy but that pesky endowment has become the foundational ritual of the LDS cult. By virtue of believing that the “endowment” is necessary for salvation in the highest kingdom, the ordinance of baptism is perverted if not totally negated. I recently came across a brilliant LDS comedian who uses humor to get Mormons thinking (if that is possible) about the ridiculousness of many aspects of Mormonism. He is kind of a mixture of Red Skeleton, Jim Carrey and the three chick monks. Check him out doing his spoof on temple marriage here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXAx5SpCsOA
Here is his piece on City Creek Mall http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaaX3dPxTyw
