Too Deep for Words

I’ve been mulling over a post on theodicy prompted by my experience at the hospital with Sara. Not surprisingly, I have a lot of conflicted thoughts on this topic.

And to be honest, I’m not even sure how to word it. So, I may or may not eventually post on it. I was going to, but really, I'm having a hard time with it right now.

It's been consuming my mind these last couple of days leaving me with nothing much else to say. If you have any thoughts on it, or ways that you reconcile the conflict, let me know in the comments.

Well, to make sure this post isn't a complete dud, I’ll leave you with something else that could be controvertial. Have you seen it? What do you think?

I’m not going to tell you what I think of it (at least not yet, but probably in the comments).

Well - where to start...
I remember reading an article once where someone pointed out that people in politics watch John Stewart and Steven Colbert because it gives them a glimse of what what they are doing appears from the outside. They're a pulse monitor of sorts. Nothing is really funny unless its true. My first instinct is to take umbridge and scream "THAT'S NOT TRUE you silly silly man!" because I'm on the inside on this one and not on the ouside. And you can't deny there are probably a number of someones somewhere who don't completly understand the relationships in play have thought that if Romney was elected that the Pres of The Church would have hand in the policy making pot. Not that thats a bad thing. But again, I'm on the inside on this one. I have a testimony of the Prophet.

On the whole I felt like Steve was just trying to finish writing the show before air and wanted to cover news, the campaign, and the writer's strike in the same paragraph. It felt forced so you can tell he was rushing.

I'm afraid I couldn't access the whole video here but all I saw was something with South Park and President Hinckley on the same page, so I turned it off. It just can't be good.
