Hah! It’s still Monday!
So, what I thought would be two longish posts has turned to be quite longer than I expected (which is simply foolish of me as I should by now know how long-winded I can be). In a way, this may be a good thing. This way I can make many points I have made and wanted to remake as well as new points I wanted to make.
In order that my readers will spared book- or treatise-length posts, I have divided what I wrote into four parts with the first two further divided into sections. The last two are sort of appended issues. The first and second parts each have four sections. I will post a section a different day. And so:
Wednesday, February 6: Section 2, Part I
Thursday, February 7: Section 3, Part I
Friday, February 8: Section 4, Part I
Saturday, February 9: Section 1, Part II
Sunday, February 10: none
Monday, February 11: Section 2, Part II
Tuesday, February 12: Section 3, Part II
Wednesday, February 13: Section 4, Part II
Thursday, February 14: Part III
Friday, February 15: Part IV
One of the things that motivated me to post these posts was Nice Deb‘s “California Textbook Teaching PC Version Of ’Jihad’”.
At around 11 am Mountain Standard Time (12 pm Central Standard Time), The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the new First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:
President BOYD K. PACKER is the new President of the Quorum of the Twelve. He was Acting President of the Quorum throughout the presidency of President Gordon B. Hinckley while President Thomas S. Monson, the actual president of the Quorum, was in the First Presidency. So this is not a new responsibility for him.
President Henry B. Eyring was the Second Counselor in the First Presidency in the last months of President Gordon B. Hinckley’s presidency.
