Obama is the guy in that Kanye West song

{Verse 3}

Now I ain’t saying you’re a gold digger you got needs
You don’t want your dude to smoke but he can’t buy weed
You got out to eat and he can’t pay you all can’t leave
There’s dishes in the back, he gotta roll up his sleeves
But why you all washing watch him
He gone make it into a Benz out of that Datsun
He got that ambition, baby, look in his eyes
This week he mopping floors next week it’s the fries
So, stick by his side
I know this dude’s balling but yeah that’s nice
And they gone keep calling and trying
But you stay right girl
But when you get on he leave your ass for a white girl

-Kanye West “Gold Digger” feat. Jamie Foxx

Does the LDS Church preach mercy, forgiveness, and love?

People believe a lot of untruths about the LDS Church. Some people actually think, for example, that Mormons do not believe in Jesus Christ. Of course, that reveals a lack of any serious inquiry: The very first thing on the signs outside LDS chapels is the full name of the Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Today, an apparently otherwise educated person commented with an apparently sincere belief that the LDS Church does not ever preach about any of the following topics: forgiveness, love, or mercy. As a Mormon, I hear these topics preached at basically every meeting.

For fun, I checked the Church’s official website,, for each of these topics. They are all there!

In fact, Google can limit a web search just to a single website. It also estimates the number of page results based on the number of relevant pages crawled. As you can see, a search for “mercy” or “forgiveness” turns up more than a half million unique page results for each word. A search for “love” brings up over 11 million hits.

Hollywood Goes to Mormon Country

Hollywood and BYU.

The industry has found a new breed of employee in Utah. One recruiter from Sony Animation Pictures described the typical B.Y.U. grad as perhaps not as talented artistically as students from the other premier schools, like CalArts, but equipped with “a different mind-set.” In most animation programs, each student leads production on his or her own film. But at B.Y.U., everyone works as a team on a single film because, unlike at art schools, students are too busy with religion courses and other requirements to be full-time filmmakers. Out of necessity, production on each year’s film winds up mirroring the way the industry actually works. B.Y.U. students emerge committed to a specialty and to collaboration — prepared for an entry-level job rather than expecting to be treated as visionary auteurs.
