LDS Curriculum and the Priestly Hermeneutical Tradition
"In an important way, this curriculum shift is further proof that Mormonism is a priestly, not a scriptural, religion, meaning that authority is found in those wearing the mantle of authority rather than those found in the scriptural text. Instead of the notion of continued revelation destabilizing contemporary authority through the prospect of possible fallibility and future revision—an impulse mostly found in a liberal periphery of the LDS tradition—the concept has actually been interpreted in a way that solidifies the very concept of contemporary authority. Read through this particular hermeneutical vein, Mormonism’s open canon centralizes authority not in the scriptural texts but the bodies of current leaders: it is not so much important what the scriptures say, but what current Church leaders tell us those scriptures mean, and how those fungible texts can serve as springboards or creative evidence for modern arguments. It is the classic problem of originalism magnified through prophetic authority. Ancient prophetic texts act as malleable clay with which modern General Authorities construct their contemporary message."

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand' - Europe - World - The Independent
+1 Pope. "Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI. … “When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said."

The most stunning stat of the 2014 election - The Washington Post
Go North Carolina! One negative ad every minute! "Tar Heels last week endured more than 10,800 U.S. Senate election-focused TV ads that featured at least some content that tarred and feathered either incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan or Republican challenger Thom Tillis. That’s more than one negative TV ad every minute from Tuesday, Oct. 14 to Monday, Oct. 20."

What if ISIS took Fox News' advice and tried to weaponize Ebola? A play in one act - Vox
"Terrorist 2: Your new plan is that we get Ebola, fly to the United States, and lick a bunch of doorknobs? Terrorist 1: Not just licking, duh. Poop and vomit carry Ebola too. So we could, like, cover doorknobs in poop, and then people will grab them while they're still wet, and then put their poop-drenched fingers in their mouths, and then — you know what, never mind. Even I can tell this is dumb."

Email threatens mass shooting if USU doesn't cancel feminist lecturer | The Salt Lake Tribune
Despicable. "An email to Utah State University threatened "the deadliest school shooting in American history" if the school did not cancel a lecture Wednesday morning by a well-known feminist writer and video game critic. "Feminists have ruined my life, and I will have my revenge, for my sake and the sake of all others they’ve wronged," read the message from a sender who claimed to be a USU student."

Drastic Times: This Man Never Makes Political Pos... | ClickHole
"It was something he said he’d never do, which may be why we took him at his word. Facebook is often a destination for spur-of-the-moment, heated debates, usually with a lot of hurt feelings and no clear winner. But despite this—or perhaps because of it—Nurkich has always made a point of keeping his Facebook page a fun, safe space for friends to stay in touch, free of any drama. Which makes what came next all the more dramatic. It’s unknown whether this feeling had been building for a while, or was simply a spontaneous reaction, but the catalyst of discovering an eye-opening article about the effects of global warming today was enough to make Nurkich turn what we knew about his Facebook wall completely upside down."

Attacking the Family – By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
"But there’s widespread agreement that being employed, and being able to support oneself and one’s family, is a good thing. Even if we disagree about how to get there, I think that’s a goal we can all work toward. And if my socioeconomic story is correct—and more people than just me think it is—then improving the job prospects of young men and women will serve to strengthen marriage and the family—just what we, as members, are charged to do."
