Feedback from May 3 and Beyond

Our readers opine on public lands, Boy Scouts and Chinese comfort food



News, May 3, "The Bears Ears Sideshow"
Damn. Thanks, Governor!

Utah's elected officials work for whomever has the most money, and in Utah's case, it is the LDS church. I guess the prophets told them shrinking Bears Ears is the thing to do.

What a bunch of shit!! It's our mountain, not yours.

Blog post, May 2, "Hatch Foundation announces partnership with U and new South Temple location"
That looks nice. Does it have a solid foundation or does it rotate based on wind direction?

[Sen. Orrin Hatch is] another old, decaying white male thinking and talking about nothing but himself while living off taxpayers' dollars.

Take Mittins away, too!

I am zero percent excited about anything that involves him. I'm not a super political person; I don't have one designated party I subscribe to or support, but rather opinions on individual issues. That being said, Hatch has never done anything that has made me exhale with relief nor applaud. The only thing he is true and consistent in, is his commitment to being a career politician.

A foundation to honor political corruption. Nice.

So glad to see Keith Knight's cartoon (Th)ink back this week. Jen Sorensen's is also great. I'd like a different alternative cartoon than Red Meat, but hey, different strokes for different folks. Really miss them when these cartoons are missing.

Every other intelligent person who will now join because they are no longer affiliated with the church.

So Mormons can't do Lamanite ... sorry, "Native American" things in the Scouts anymore? This breaks my heart.

God forbid the gays and women join and try to make a better person out of themselves. It's all part of the lifelong indoctrination churches push to keep the tithe dollars rolling in. Jesus flipped money changers tables in the temple, but for a couple billion a year, we'll rewrite that part.

Maybe non-LDS kids will feel welcome in the Scouts. That would be a great thing.

Yep. We had several non-LDS boys in our troop but every one of them quit when the Scoutmaster made them go to church on a Sunday spent at camp, or be sent home from Camp Steiner in 1982. Boy, did that jackass have some explaining to do when three sets of parents showed up to get their sons.

Bad for the LDS kids. [They'll] never learn about other cultures, ethnic groups or experience anything except what is church-approved. Then go to school and feel like they are perfect, then turn into bullies and intolerant, sarcastic know-nothings about the real world.
