13 million members?

So there are basically twice as many Mormons as Jews in the United States?

Wow.

That's okay

laughing is good for your soul

not so for evil tobacco, alcohol, or caffeine.


anyways, with every dark cloud there is a silver lining

yes, we loss our beloved Gordon

but, now there is a fall back for Mitt to have his Presidency.

We shall just have to see where the Lord believes he can be a better servant.

Speculation is that Thomas S Monson will be called as the next President.

Historically the senior most Apostle, which Thomas Monson is- is usually called to the Church Presidency.



Mitt will just be a member in good standing.
