Now let’s see, I’ve been on Facebook since 2009. From the beginning I have been against the Mormon/FLDS/LDS for profit and deviance because of what they do and have done to the state or Arizona. I’ve said time and time again that they believe that church and state are one of the same. I have for years told you how evil and corrupt they are and how they are making Arizona their Utah. I’ve had many that have criticized my messages. But is an advocate which aims to protect and inform people of a group founded on white supremacy and greed, and bad thing? I’ve warned folks about how you shouldn’t view the crisp collars and well manicured lawns as nothing more than a front for the evil that is discussed in their stakes and temples. She mended guns and faith, it will only be a matter of time that she argues that the LDS/Mormons/FLDS it the only organization that she feels meets her nirvana where the will of the white establishment supersedes all others.

Our Father who art in heaven … could you take a moment out of your busy schedule and come down here, please?
We need You to explain a few things to Arizona state State Sen. Sylvia Allen.
(I know. You’re shaking your head, aren’t you? This might be too daunting a task even for YOU.)
Allen, as You know, is a Republican from Snowflake, a Tea Party favorite who wants to pretend Arizona is an independent country rather than a state, and who believes government should stay completely out of people lives — unless she can use her position to help out a son-in-law who got into some hot water over behavior with some of the inmates he was guarding at a women’s prison.
But that’s another story.
Anyway, Big Guy, they were debating a gun bill at a legislative committee meeting at the State Capitol this week so, naturally, Allen brought up religion.
(In Arizona, complete lack of logic is natural. But, you know that, too)
This was one of those crazy bills in which lawmakers want people to be able to bring concealed weapons into public buildings. Allen got upset because a few people expressed common sense opposition to the idea. Lawmakers here cannot abide common sense.
Allen said, “Probably we should be debating a bill requiring every American to attend a church of their choice on Sunday to see if we can get back to having a moral rebirth,” adding “that would never be allowed.”
She hinted that guns in public buildings might be necessary until there is a moral rebirth.
(I couldn’t find anything about that in the New Testament, but I’m no biblical scholar.)
“I believe what’s happening to our country is that there’s a moral erosion of the soul of America,” she said.
Allen later told the Arizona Capitol Times that she wished things were more like they were in the 1950s.
(Again, I know what you’re thinking: Civil rights problems. Women’s rights problems. Voting rights problems. Segregated schools.)
Allen told the Times, “People prayed, people went to church. I remember on Sundays the stores were closed. The biggest thing is religion was kicked out of our public places, out of our schools.”
I’m not sure that even a Supreme Being such as yourself could get through to the lesser beings in the Arizona Legislature, but perhaps You could take a moment and explain to them the Constitutional reason for a separation between church and state. And perhaps explain as well that religion and morality are not something that comes from public schools, but from our faiths, our families and, ultimately, ourselves.
I’m not one for mixing religious faith with newspaper work, but I say this with both exasperation and solicitation:
God help us.
