Way EXciting News!!!

My Brother got ENGAGED!!! Ya I really was excited when he got engaged... Then he decided to move the day up to Dec.30. Wow that's soon! He's marrying a real neat girl. Here's some pics of them. I think they look well together!

My sisters are a bit crazy!

I love my sisters! Too bad only two of them live here! anyway... I took some pics of my two little sisters a couple days ago. (I'm trying to practice and get better at Photography) It was fun. They crack me up. I thought I'd just stick a couple of them up for ya'all to see.

Who really is intolerant?

I find it funny that people who were so against Prop 102 here in AZ 

or Prop 8 in CA have been so angry at those 

of us who have a different opinion.  I especially 

think it is interesting to say that one is intolerant 

of intolerance, 

when the truth is they are intolerant of anyone 

who has a different opinion than their own.  I saw 

this news article 

not written by an LDS bishop, but a Catholic 

bishop and liked what he said.  

  (This news release was issued by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento) The following statement was released today by Bishop William Weigand, head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento and former Bishop of Salt Lake City, in response to attacks on (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) for supporting California’s Proposition 8, defending the traditional definition of marriage: 

“Catholics stand in solidarity with our Mormon brothers and sisters in support of traditional marriage — the union of one man and one woman — that has been the major building block of Western Civilization for millennia. 

“The ProtectMarriage coalition, which led the successful campaign to pass Proposition 8, was an historic alliance of people from every faith and ethnicity. LDS were included — but so were Catholics and Jews, Evangelicals and Orthodox, African-Americans and Latinos, Asians and Anglos.

“Bigoted attacks on Mormons for the part they played in our coalition are shameful and ignore the reality that Mormon voters were only a small part of the groundswell that supported Proposition 8.

“As the former bishop of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, I can attest to the fact that followers of the Mormon faith are a good and generous people with a long history of commitment to family and giving to community causes.

“I personally decry the bigotry recently exhibited towards the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — coming from the opponents of Proposition 8, who ironically, have called those of us supporting traditional marriage intolerant.

“I call upon the supporters of same-sex marriage to live by their own words — and to refrain from discrimination against religion and to exercise tolerance for those who differ from them. I call upon them to accept the will of the people of California in the passage of Proposition 8.”

Land that I love.

Obama won... he's the new President of the United States. I don't really know what to do! I guess I'll just pray for him and for the country as a whole. I am very happy though right now that the marriage amendment is going the way I want it to so far. I love that I live in a democratic country and I am grateful for the right and privilege to vote! God Bless America!
