Standard-Examiner: Our View: Politics and Religion

Back to the Deacon's Quorum for the twisted Bishop Paredes, we say
No one is de­ny­ing Pare­des, or any­one else, the right to crit­i­cize pols or take po­lit­i­cal stances. What’s be­ing crit­i­cized is the id­i­ocy of claim­ing that Sena­tor Reid is not a wor­thy Mor­mon be­cause he is a Dem­o­crat. That is an ob­nox­ious, back­wards sen­ti­ment that should be shunned by any sen­si­ble mem­ber of the Mor­mon faith, re­gard­less of party. One hopes that the ig­no­rance of us­ing party af­fil­i­a­tion to de­ter­mine some­one’s “rig­teous­ness” is an idea that will wither away.
Be­ing in­volved in the po­lit­i­cal pro­cess, whether as a Re­pub­li­can, Dem­o­crat, in­de­pen­dent, or with a third party, is most of­ten an ex­pres­sion of pa­tri­o­tism as well as al­tru­ism. It’s an ef­fort to im­prove our na­tion. When one falls into the ma­li­cious trap of in­ter­pret­ing di­verse opin­ions and stances as un­righ­teous, it is an un­healthy, ar­ro­gant abuse of both po­lit­i­cal and re­li­gious tol­er­ance and de­cency.

Top-shelf editorial from this morning's SE hard-copy edition:
Our Weber County Forum view? This nitwit John Parades should be stripped by "The 'true' Church" of all his heretofore LDS church  "vestments."

Back to the Deacon's Quorum for Bishop Paredes, we say.
