Satan's Minions

I’m kind of flabberghasted by this story, to be quite honest. I mean, I know Utah County should be cordoned off and warning signs put up warding off unwary people. But this just cements the fact we should commence building the Great Wall of Utah County.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan’s minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

In a speech at the convention, Larsen told those gathered that illegal immigrants “hate American people” and “are determined to destroy this country, and there is nothing they won’t do.”

Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working in tandem with Democrats, are trying to “destroy Christian America” and replace it with “a godless new world order — and that is not extremism, that is fact,” Larsen said.

At the end of his speech, Larsen began to cry, saying illegal immigrants were trying to bring about the destruction of the U.S. “by self invasion.”

Wow. Illegal aliens are in control of the media, and working with Democrats to Destroy Christian America. Whoulda thunk it.

I don’t know what scares me more. That Larsen really believes the crap he is spouting, or that people down there actually AGREED with him.

Republican officials then allowed speakers to defend and refute the resolution. One speaker, who was identified as “Joe,” said illegal immigrants were Marxist and under the influence of the devil. Another, who declined to give her name to the Daily Herald, said illegal immigrants should not be allowed because “they are not going to become Republicans and stop flying the flag upside down. … If they want to be Americans, they should learn to speak English and fly their flag like we do.”

Uh… okay. (Warning: Stay away from Utah County.)

    I take it that the Kool-aid is extra potent in Utah County. Scary.

    Oh, good grief. Satan’s minions?

    From my front row seat here in central California, where we have more than our share of undocumented guests, most of those folks are only here because they can’t make enough money to support their families in those nations south of the border where many of them come from. And it’s a good thing they come here, because the people who live here legally – of all ethnic backgrounds – mostly won’t do things like harvest the crops because they think they’re too good to do it. Many’s the time, after a rash of visits from La Migra (that’d be the Border Patrol and Immigration and Naturalization), that I’ve seen the signs up in front of farms asking – no, begging – for workers to pick the fruit before it goes bad in the fields because all of the workers they had hired were on buses back to the border.

    Well…I can’t stay out of Utah County ’cause I work there. Heh. While I think the Kool Aid down there may be doctored, I do know someone who was at that meeting and was absolutely appalled by this lunacy, though his/her politics are pretty darn far right compared to mine.

    This isn’t the first time Satan has been brought up lately – some other guy last fall was saying Satan was interfering with his election (not someone who reps Utah at a national level thankfully), I can’t remember his name.

    Satan’s minions may be busy at work, but I doubt they are doing it through some nice Latino people who are trying to make it by and help their families. Anyone ever see The Omen? He was doing it through some “nice” “white” “upper class” guy. Heh.

    Molly the Mormon has been having trouble with Satin lately. I should go to her blog and tell her he’s an illegal alien and not to worry. I’m sure she will be relieved.

    For those on this site who are sincere about wanting to know what Mormons really believe, here is a suggested article from a General Authority of the Church. He is, by the way, a convert to the Church!

    Natalie, you left out the part where Larsen talks about the LDS church discussing whether or not to allow illegal immigrants to hold temple recommends. Because THAT issue keeps me up at night.

    I also read Kenn Smart’s recently posted comments here. http://www.nataliercollins.com/weblog/2007/02/15/the-worst-massacre-in-utah-history/#comment-47917
    I think he made some good points. Just wondering what your thoughts were.

    Thanks for your comments Kenn. I think they were right on the mark.

    I sent that link to a Mormon friend of mine who was disgusted with the article and how these “right wingers” are acting. She also lamented that this is the kind of thing that will get picked up at the national level and make Utahns in general, not just Mormons, look wacky and twisted.

    There are always the people who take things too far. My 1st husband was one of those. I remember him asking me about a new family I was making friends with in the ward. He was asking all their names. Either the wife or one of the daughters was named Lydia, which also happened to be my “new name” when I had my temple endowment. When I said Lydia, as one of the family members’ names, my ex freaked out that I had said that name – even though it was just in a normal context.

    His belief was that once I had been assigned that name as my “new name” in the temple, I should never again say that name under any context except in the resurrection. I told him I thought that was silly, and he thought I was evil for “talking back” to him. He also told me that I shouldn’t be friends with that family unless I could find a way to avoid using the name Lydia when I talked with them. No small wonder I divorced him.

  13. Wayne,

    You did NOT give me valid reasons for polygamy. You merely gave information that someone ELSE used to justify it. Therefore, I did not respond.

    Are you, like, Trapped’s own personal missionary?

    Um…Wayne. You’re reminding me a lot right now of those missionaries in the PBS documentary that kept following the guy up the street and he finally had to specifically tell them not to follow him. And it isn’t really very attractive.

    Anyway, one of the reasons I like coming here and reading Natalie’s blog is that it is generally a missionary-free zone. As, INTJ_Mom said, most of us here know exactly what Mormonism teaches because we’ve been there.

    Speaking of Missionaries, two, very nice, Mormon missionaries came by the house yesterday.

    They told right off the bat they were missionaries, although they did leave out the Mormon part, but their clothes, backpack and bike helmet did give them away. My dad told them we, that is my family, were missionaries also, and one of the guys said, “awesome,” he said that quiet a lot. They asked us with who, and my dad told them the church we go to, again “awesome,” was used.

    They didn’t get preachy or pushy, and we didn’t yell them. They asked if there was anything they could do for us, we said “no,” and then my dad said, “is there anything we can do for you,” they said “no.” Best wishes for a good day were spread all around, and they left for the next house.

    I think my dad telling them we were missionaries threw them a bit, but it ended friendly.

    In my Mormon missionary experiences, they seem pretty friendly, more friendly then the JW’s that come around, but that’s another story.
