      Again, Koolaid, if he is a temple recommend holder it is between him, his bishop, and the Lord and is none of your business. Your comments and arguments hold little credence when you lack the courage to use even a real first name. I can only conclude that you don’t really believe in the ideals and slander that you throw about on the comment boards. Above that, you end up discrediting relevant and important issues that need to be addressed with your attempt to be thought provoking.

        Wasn’t a bishop caught in a prostitution sting? Wasn’t another bishop caught in some scam ripping off people? So much for the temple worthiness. May as well allow anyone to be temple worthy, not just those current in tithing and wearing secret undies.

    I be here not long. And want to get koolaid is how you say very slow in brains. He think because people not always good but a least try. Koolaid us just not good and not worth trying because I know them the molested at young age and will never be happy until help is given to himself it not kool to have aid but to try and they can’t cause what happened at to young age. When they put others down to help themselves they only go worst until they have only negative and they spread to other like them selves until they go away. I hope they would come with me were I wast born and bad talk original people kool aid would be beneath when they were young age.

      I don’t give a rat’s behind if I’m temple worthy or not. Based on your comments, you are either stupid or drank too much of that religion koolaid. “Stay worthy, my friend!” Idiot

      • You missed the point. August 18, 2014 at 6:22 pm

        I don’t care if you are temple worthy either. The thing is, you goof, is that you insist on your tired comments asking if everyone else is.
