What I have to say, is not intended to find fault with the Church or the University which it owns, but instead, hopefully to alert some of it’s membership, that some of our thinking, some of our actions, and some of our our attitudes in general, (that we are better than everyone else), might be doing far more harm to the Church and the University than any good that they could be accomplishing.
Admittedly, what I may say, may be more harmful than good, and if the editors think this to be so, I request that instead of suspending me for 100 years, that instead, you just delete this posting and let’s be friends…
1Q. Why do we always blame others for our own short comings?
2Q. Why do we blame those that we deem as prejudice”
3Q. Why do we blame those that we call far left liberals.
4Q. Why do we always feel that those other guys are against us for no good reason?
5Q. Why do we believe that we are not doing anything wrong, when evidence says we are.
Why can’t we see what is keeping us from having the respect we need to get into any P5
conference? We can have respect by being respectful. Why can’t we be respectful?
Why can’t we see that others do not want to deal with people/places/things that
expect everyone else to give in to their needs, but at the same time, refuse to give into
some of the needs of the organizations which we want/need to be in? Why do we see
our values as the only values worth while, while seeing values that differ from ours as
useless, or worse, we see them as bad and/or uninformed…
Why do we blame liberals, for our failures, because liberals want us to be more fair
and more inclusive of those in the organizations which we so badly want/need to be
a part of?
4A.) Why can’t we understand that we can not interfere with California Politics from Utah
(Prop 8) where USC is and where UCLA is, and where Cal is, and where Stanford is,
and expect them to like us and vote to have us join the Pac 12?
4B.) Why can’t we stop from telling the world that the LGBT community is an abomination
in the sight of the Lord, but the Straight community is not, and not realize that 2/3 of the
world Capital for this group is in Hollywood and San Francisco, where the other 1/3 is on
one of the Greek Islands. Hollywood is near USC and UCLA while San Francisco is near
Cal and Stanford. How can we expect these four Universities in the Pac 12 to vote for our
inclusion into the Pac 12, and be tormented by the LGBT community for doing so when all
the pac 12 has to do is vote against our inclusion and thus avoid the baggage that we would
be carrying with us. It is better to not have to deal with us and our unpopular baggage.
Our baggage is not the making of the Pac 12 so they should not have to deal with it.
The Big 12 decided that it would be better to stick with only 10 teams than to have to deal with all the baggage that BYU would have to bring with then because of the mess they made with the LGBT community. A modified version of 1978 needs to be made in a hurry to give the LGBT community a full respected and benefitted seat at the table without reticule. .
4C.) Why can’t we believe what the Bible tells us? “Judge not, (lest ye be J U D G E D.”
“leave all the judging to God.” Why are we surprised that when we judge others, when told
by God, not to, that we will suffer the consequences of not obeying this commandment. As long
as we judge the LGBT community, they will set judgement on us and any conference that might
have let us in. No !!! They will keep us out and it will be of our own making. Prejudice? No!
Surprise? No. Liberals fault? No!! We expect the whole world to think as we do and they don’t,
and we apparently, are not smart enough to figure this out, or perhaps, we are just too arrogant to
think it is our fault.
Why do we continue to believe that we are not doing anything wrong when what we do, and
what we say, and how we act, keeps us out of the sports mainstream world that we so much
want and need to be a part of. What will it take for us to realize that it is not prejudice, unless
we do, say, and act in such a way as to cause people to be prejudice against us. We have a
habit of calling those that follow the commandments of the Bible, in Loving thy neighbor as
yourself, and judge not lest ye be judged, and leave all the judging to God, as bleeding heart
liberals. Shish!!! Wow!!! is this what we are really about? We need to make some changes in
Finally, there will always be those irritating people that pretend to be more holy than God,
that will ask, "Ron, what is more important, 1. Keeping the Mission of the Church or 2. Getting
into the P5 conference? My answer to these self righteous brothers would be, If the mission
of the Church is not in conflict with what the Bible teaches us, one need not choose between the
mission of the Church and Football, but see them inclusive of each other.
