Hey, Nancy Starks of Salt Lake City- Go To Hell

From today's Tribune: "I'd like to respond to Cori Christensen's letter (Forum, Aug.13) blaming the Sierra Club for the long waits on Interstate 15 from Bountiful. The blame actually could be found as I read one woman's obituary on the same day: She mothered seven children and now leaves behind 42 grandchildren, 120 great-grandchildren and 19 great-great-grandchildren." Pathetic Nancy. Truly classless.

While the author could have used more tact, the point does have merit. When do we stop promoting enormously large families in this state? Land is becoming scarce, traffic is piling up, and water will be the ultimate concern. Over-population is not too far off in this area, but yet our religious leaders still promote large families. At some point won't they have to compromise religious doctrine when there isn't enough water to drink or land to raise all them kids on?

Dude, chill out.

All she is saying is that building more highways will not sustain a rapidly expanding population, she wasn't railing against big families.

Is everything okay, Ethan? Your posts seem to be somewhat acidic as of late.

Two points:

1. When was the last time you heard, in General Conference that is (other stuff is interesting, contradictory, fun and doesn't count), an LDS religious leader promote large families?

2. Overpopulation isn't the problem. The problem is that we all want to live in the same place and there's not enough water here. Go up to Oregon some day and watch the mighty Columbia River dump millions of gallons of fresh water into the ocean. There's plenty of water--it just doesn't drain into our lovely Deseret.

Mike.

Mike,

When was the last time an LDS faithful said they wanted a "small" family?

If we Gentile immigrants are numerous enough to skew the religious makeup of the valley, then obviously WE are a bigger problem than large Mormon families. Mwahahahahaha!
