    which reminds me. Whatever happened to Eagle Forum?
    Their website appears to be a malware infested site so I'm not going there, but their FB page shows that they are as active and whackadoodle as ever.

I never would have guessed that they would have held stronger and had firmer faith in the political cult instead of the religious cult."

    Now...outside of her calling the religion a cult, I am in 100% agreement with her. I didn't realize that most of the people I grew up with and go to Church with are more entrenched in their political party than their religion.

    People are making way too much out of this.
    The level of indignation/anger is impressive.

    I'd agree with this. Happened for me when Prop. 8 rolled around. Took me a while to realize how to handle it. Made life easier for me when I learned how to separate the two. Interesting that this happens a week or so after the Church updates their handbook on respecting everyone's ability to following the political party of their choice, even if it doesn't align with Church doctrine. (Paraphrasing there because I can't find the tweet listing the changes.)

    I had a really good friend that has blocked me on FB because of something similar to this. He went on a huge long rant about how he was disappointed that the 1P has fallen into the political trap and "fake science" behind the China Virus hoax. He said "I can testify that the FP is speaking as men here and not as God's mouthpiece." I told him that I backed him up 100%. I said "I get the same confirmation from the Spirit every time the Leadership of the Church tells us that being Gay is wrong, or that being gay is a sin. They are only speaking as men and not for God, so I choose to ignore them. Glad we understand each other.

    It spiraled downhill really fast.
    this is delicious. The same prophet who played a huge part in the 2015 policy is now appealing for human decency in COVID times. And it’s the appeal to decency that’s not prophetic.

    I hope you all noticed that they "urged" us, not "commanded" us.

    Yep.
