    What about following the accounts of political leaders?
    I think he means if you ONLY follow the FP and apostles. I mean, your Twitter feed would be pretty boring in that case

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    • Loved most of my religion classes at the BYU—especially the ones that were taught by the professors most students hated. I found the more popular the teacher the less I liked the class.

      • I see Hank Smith mentioned by facebook friends every now and then. He's the millenial's Brad Wilcox, right?
        "...you pointy-headed autopsy nerd. Do you think it's possible for you to post without using words like "hilarious," "absurd," "canard," and "truther"? Your bare assertions do not make it so. Maybe your reasoning is too stunted and your vocabulary is too limited to go without these epithets."

          No that is not what he said.

            Yeah, if you follow all Q12 + 3FP, you are a borderline weirdo. Sorry, there is no wiggle room. You are either trying to send some message through your follows, or are so unable to think for yourself that you feel the need to hear/see/read everything they say and do. Follow your favorite 2-3, if you must.

            If you follow political leaders on Twitter, you are a freaking loser. Maybe a weirdo too, but definitely a loser.

            There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

              • I think it would be somewhat hilarious if everyone following Hank Smith told him that he was probably right to only follow the First Presidency and Q12, and then unfollowed him.

                My son picked up a couple of Hank Smith CD's as a missionary, and I listened to one with him during a long drive we took together. It was very good - if you like the John Bytheway-ish style of story telling and working in a gospel message and learning with a good dose of humor and spirit. I could see the draw for the younger crowd.

                But I could see him being completely capable of going weird as well. Too bad, I guess.
