So is this paper soley for mormons? Why isn't the paper discussing Utahns
in the Olympics, instead of just mormon's in the Olympics?
The Deseret News is owned by Bonneville News Corp, a corporation owned by the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In addition, this article is
entitled 'Mormons in the Olympics, days 1 and 2: swimming and
fencing.' Finally, this article is found under Faith - Mormon Times. So,
yes, this article is written specifically for those of the 'Mormon'
faith who would find this of interest. If you go to the Sports - Olympics
section, you'll find various articles on the Olympics, including 'US
women volleyballers defeat Brazil in Olympics', 'Video: Utah
women's basketball well-represented in 2012 Summer Olympics',
'Lone Peak senior McKenzie Willey makes U.S. High Performance volleyball
team', and others. So the paper is clearly discussing Utahns in the Olympic
games.I guess you'll have to answer your first question
yourself about this being a paper 'soley for mormons', but it seems to
me that there's plenty in this paper for everyone.If, on the
other hand, you simply want to complain about the Deseret News printing items
that do not coincide with your specific theology, I would request that you
please stop. It does get old and annoying.
Candide,Do you have kids, a pet, a life partner perhaps? If so, do
you talk about your own pet, kids, and/or life partner more than the neigbors
kid, pet, or his life partner? My guess is yes.I love it when
people get bothered by all the Mormon talk. I am so happy this has clearly
upset you. I will love all future articles about Mormons in sports. 1 because I
will like the articles and 2 because I know they will bother you.Thank you and God bless
Candide; "Why isn't the paper discussing Utahns in the Olympics,
instead of just mormon's in the Olympics?"I think you meant
to say "the article" instead of "the paper". Clearly this paper
has lots of articles that have nothing to do with Mormons or the Olympics.
Just wondering why it matters which religion the athletes are? It seems to me
that people must be very insecure in their own beliefs if they need to validate
themselves by knowing that there are a few people out there participating in
sports that share their particular mythology. I don't need to know how many
pastafarians there are competing to understand the truth of his sauce. Pure,
unadulterated, hubris."The more I study religions the more I am
convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself."Richard
@ Candide: Well said. The Olympics is a competition of nations, not religions.
@ Ted H: Your argument is completely off base. The only thing taken
from it is your sense of anger and vitriol for those with a different opinion.
Don't forget the upcoming Paralympics, there are Mormons competing there as
Hey Candide! Guess what?! Don't read the Mormon Times and then you
won't have to read about Mormons at all!! Problem solved!
Hey Florida! Guess What?! It's not the mormon times, it's the D-News!!
