romney-3.jpgMassachusetts Governor Mitt Romney did not wait for instructions from Washington or the Department of Homeland Security when hearing of the recently foiled terrorist attempt on what he should do as the state’s chief executive. Rather, he immediately took action as governor to do what he could to protect Massachusetts’ citizens. (more…)

Some $2 million and 100 tons in humanitarian aid donated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arrived in Beruit, Lebanon–desperately needed I’m sure.

The scholarly panel discussion of the Book of Mormon as literature was held Wednesday evening in Salt Lake City. Write-ups about the conference (prior to) are at DMI, Mormon Metaphysics and also The Deseret News. A Motley Vision has a very nice write up on the post conference from Eric Russell who was lucky enough to attend. (more…)

(Updated 8/10/06) [Note: This is an updated post from the old M&A Blogger site, containing the most recent links and commentary on this issue.] A “recent” article in the Los Angeles Times has returned the issue of The Book of Mormon and DNA to the news media. My purpose in this post is simply to catalogue to the extent possible, in one location as much of the DNA and Book of Mormon discussion that has occurred in the Bloggernacle and other sources. If anyone knows of posts, threads or discussions I have missed, please let me know so that I may include them here. I will disclose up front that I believe the Book of Mormon to be what it claims to be, i.e., a Second Witness for Jesus Christ. Therefore, I will retain editorial control over the links I post. My purpose is to provide links that will impart information for faithful Latter-day Saints to become informed on these issues, and to allow them to study it out in their own minds. Many of the Blog links below are generally faithful discussions of this issue; however, some of the comments are at times critical of the Church’s position.
