I am so disappointed in our elected officials right now. The United States is in trouble, and I am sad to see the direction we are headed. Unfortunately, some of the elected official who belong to the LDS faith are leading us down this troubled path.
I was thinking about a great way to send a message to Congress to let them know how I feel, and then I decided that the best thing I could do was send them a pink slip. Of course, this pink slip will merely be a symbol of my disapproval; I can’t really fire them. My pink slip alone won’t do much, but if I can get enough people to do the same, imagine the message it would send. So, here’s my invitation to all of you–send a pink slip to your elected members of Congress. Pass the idea along to your friends, and encourage them to do the same.
The reason I am so disgusted with the LDS members of Congress is that their actions seem so counter to some basic principles of the faith. I am going to end this post with some well-known verses from the Book of Mormon:
8 And it came to pass that he said unto them: Behold, here are the waters of Mormon (for thus were they called) and now, as ye are a to come into the b of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light;
9 Yea, and are a to mourn with those that b; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as c of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the d, that ye may have eternal life—
10 Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being a in the b of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a c with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?
