I just KNEW Joe would try to take care of those kids!

I hadn't seen this earlier. But I KNEW Joe wouldn't be able to sleep nights, knowing the pain that those kids and their parents are going through. Over 500 kids, still waiting to be reunited with their parents.

Crickets from the church pulpit

My wife is LDS, and hadn't attended a church service in nearly a year. She really wanted to attend this particular service, so against my better judgement I drove her and attended with her. We live in a very rural area in Tennessee, so its a very tiny congregation (maybe a dozen families, spread out).
All of this confessing, to lead up to my disgust that there was not a single word concerning the attack on our nation's Capitol! No message from the Church's Prophet and First Presidency. The LDS Church supposedly holds the belief that the Constitution is a "divinely inspired" document, but offers no statement admonishing its members to uphold it.
The Salt Lake Tribune had this to say;
"Top officials in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints declined to comment on Wednesday’s assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump, a siege that included a banner copying the “Title of Liberty” used by the Book of Mormon’s Captain Moroni.". https://www.sltrib.com/religion/2021/01/06/reaction-capitol-assault/

I'm sure that the Mormon Church isn't the only church with nothing to say this morning. Much like the Republican party, worrying more about losing members of their congregations, than losing their integrity.
