Thoughts on First Presidency response to election results

It's here:

Anyway, I don't really have a problem with this. The Church generally has bishops read a letter to their congregations a couple times a year about how they (the General Authority) are completely neutral when it comes to political candidates (but not California propositions), but members should vote and be informed and stuff.

The Church is very diplomatic. And with a Mormon presidencial candidate, it was probably good that they said something. (The Church - as a whole, not the individual members - LOVES the fact that Romney ran, even though he didn't win, because it means more people across the world are learning what Mormons even are.)

It's just this line right here:

"We invite Americans everywhere, whatever their political persuasion, to pray for the President, for his administration and the new Congress as they lead us through difficult and turbulent times."

I can just picture Mormons everywhere being convinced this is some sort of prophecy of things to come, like in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" where the Sorting Hat warns all the students that they need to band together.

But really, the General Authority has been going on and on for years about how awful things are in our modern day.

Really, I just think it's a bunch of old guys who are still shocked to death that porn is now available on the internet.

And there ends my very blasphemous thoughts.
