Comments: HMMM

I once dated a young lady who found my outrage, anger, and pain at watching someone burn the American flag, odd and berated me for it. Knowing her as well as I do/did, I'm sure she is upset at the insensitivity and intolerance shown by Americans regarding any desecration of the Koran.

My thoughts today are let us not stoop to their level, rather let us elevate them to ours. By that I mean we should hold Muslims around the world to the same standards we try to hold ourselves to. We should condemn as ignorant and insensitive their own sensitivity to paper pulp and ink, in the same way many liberals condemn many other Americans for their much less extremist and hateful reaction to watching America-haters burn the cloth and dye that represent our nation.

Two more things. Card is a mormon? (ed. They prefer Latter Day Saints) And always be careful when dating a first year psych major.

The Mormon Church and The Latter Day Saints are basically the same, however, LDS is more like a branch of the Mormon Church, such as Baptist and Southern Baptist, etc. I have a good friend who is a Mormon, but she and her family do not consider themselves to be LDS. Her husband was the state president here in central Illinois until they moved. I really admired them because they truly practiced their faith and were a real asset to our community.

LDS is NOT a branch of Mormonism. There are no "branches", in the sense of related or subsidiary groups - only one, unified church.

Mormon is a nickname for Latter-day Saints.
