You Just Can't Make This Stuff Up
Just when we thought that the Republican Party were making themselves irrelevant and headed for their demise in the '08 Presidential Election -- Vice President Dick Cheney receives an invitation to be the commencement speaker at Brigham Young University. And, guess what -- his appearance is already being protested by students and faculty.
At Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah there are students that are unhappy with a man of dubious character. Go figure!
And, in the State of Utah the Republican Party is loosing support and when recently polled favored a Democratic candidate over a Republican.
I have always respected the honesty and integrity of my Mormon cousins. Our "Community" denounced many of the practices of their church during our period of Reorganization with Joseph Smith III as our President. One of our Prophet / Presidents once described the LDS Church as being a grand machine that had numerous moving parts and mechanisms but produced nothing... That may be harsh, but I still believe in the sincerity of their faithful.
I applaud the veracity of the students and faculty at BYU. They know in their hearts that we have leaders that have not followed the teachings of Jesus Christ. Keep it up, cousins, and tell the world how you feel about Dick and Shrub!
"The End is Coming" placard walkers may want to change their signs to read "The End is Here" -- for the Republican Party.
