the mysterious mysteries

This blog is just a little rant on a conversation I had with my sister the other day about equality and or the lack there of. And I have been thinking that why? Why do we have the desire to be equal to something we are not. For instance I would not dare try to be equal to my wife or sister or any other woman. Why? Because i am just plain old not that awesome for one thing. They on the3 other hand can stop a crying baby ( I do not have that talent no matter how much but patting or back rubbing I do.). But its not just motherly things they are my superior in. They have way more Faith and faith is the true cornerstone to power in the gospel. It is Faith that moves mountains or changes lives, not the fact that someone has a specific title or calling. It is faith that allows us to see others the way the savior does including ourselves. If you have faith you don't need to know the mysteries of the gospel because they can't save you but your faith and the things that you do because of it will. And Women in general hold that card way better than most men ever will or could. True Some men don't see it that way, but some women don't either and that is dumb. Men are better in some things like farting and starting wild fires or committing major crimes against humanity. So don't even try to equal are greatness in these markets because you will fail.
On another little side note here is my rant on gay marriage. I do not wish to offend and I say this with love not hate. You choose the path you take in life and that path often eliminates certain things naturally. It is the order of things. If you choose to play the tuba you can't sit with the violins in a concert, both are instruments, both make music but... Lets just say you don't get a lot of tuba, violin duets. When you choose to be homosexual and yes I do think in almost all cases it is a choice you choose the path that lifestyle leads you to. You are still a member of society you still can vote and serve and be a positive influence, but marriage is not part of that lifestyle. So why do you need it, You don't play that instrument so why bunch yourselves with that group. In all honesty I don't think it is a equal rights issue it is a identity issue. So there you go, that is my opinion take it for what it is.


  1. you know what, jon? you DO fart way better then i do. and i'm getting a little frust-rated myself with the whole gay marriage thing. kind of interesting the way you talked about why we want to be equal but we are different so why try to be the same thing. or something like that. i shall pontificate on the subject. some more.

  2. Good points Jon. I agree, isn't it possible for a man and a women to stand side by side but not be totally equal in all things? The important thing is that they are standing side by side.

  3. OK give us your man card. . . hand it over! Yeah were are you going. . . COME BACK!
