Well excuuuuuuse me!

Ok, so at the moment I'm feeling a bit miffed. I mean, this is MY blog, I should be able to post whatever I want, right? Well apparently now I'm being told to remove things from my blog, by someone named "Anonymous."

Now, I know they have good intentions, because apparently the quote I posted about Pres. Hinckley is "Mormon folklore" or whatever, but I'm just annoyed that someone I don't even know is telling me to edit my blog.

So, Dear "Anonymous," you and "Heidi" (another person I don't know who felt it necessary to leave a comment on that same post) will be happy to know that I have removed it.

There, are ya happy?

I guess I am partly annoyed also because even though it may be "folklore" it is a quote that just makes you feel good. It's not like I put something on there that was evil or satanic. Sheesh. How was I supposed to know it wasn't real? And yes, if you couldn't tell, I am one of those people who has a hard time admitting when I'm wrong. But, I will, even though I don't like to.

I hope in the future if "Anonymous" decides to leave another comment on my blog that he/she will introduce himself/herself to me before commenting. Thanks.

FYI: The following is the comment:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Our Beloved Prophet, We'll Miss You":

The First Presidency sent a letter to all Stake Presidents and Bishops, which our Bishop read to us in Ward Council yesterday, STRONGLY repudiating that quote, and repeating that neither President Packer, nor President Monson, had ever said such a thing, and that it is not church doctrine. Priesthood leaders have been instructed to use "all means" available to make sure it is not taught or repeated.

Please remove it from your blog.

It was me... yeah right! Now I am really curious as to what quote it even was. You will have to repost it along with this entry. That just makes me laugh. How someone feels they have the right to ask you to remove it... not just to bring it to your attention but to go that extra step.
Maybe after I am refreshed as to what the quite ever said I can post it on my blog. Just out of spite.

Rude! I think Mr. Anonymous could have definitely been a little nicer? And what is their story? Are they searching though random blogs trying to find things to dispute? You go right ahead and be miffed!

Jack and Heidi Shiner said...

How dare they, though my name IS Heidi, I would never tell you what to do on YOUR blog. Besides, I like the quote...

Jenny J said...

that heidi chick atleast left a link to her blog on her profile...mr/mrs anonymous didn't even have the decency to do that - and was rude to boot. gotta love the holier-than-though mormons in church - it wouldn't be the same without 'em.

Shari... is the quote about something like how this generation is super amazing... bla bla... if you send it to me i could tell... but if it's the one i'm thinking of i think it's by brad wilcox... just in case you're looking for an author and want to RE post it :) Love your guts!

Josh & Alex Barlow said...

Got a little obsessed... if this is the quote... this is the source as I found it :)...

"You, the youth of the church today, were generals in the war of Heaven.

Someday when you are back in the Spirit World, you will be enthralled by other souls who will be from many other interesting time periods and who lived during the time of many great prophets.

You may ask one person, "When did you live?" and hear something like, "I was with Moses when he parted the Red Sea," or "I helped build one of the great pyramids," or "I fought with Captain Moroni."

And as you are standing there amazed at the people you are with, someone will ask you during which prophets' time you lived in; when you tell them that you lived during the time of President Kimball, President Benson, President Hunter, and President Hinckley, a hush will fall over every hall and corridor of Heaven and all in attendance will bow in your presence.

This is a very important stewardship we have been given. We were held back for 6000 years because we were the most righteous, most talented, most obedient servants of our Heavenly Father."

-- quoted by Brad Wilcox, at Especially For Youth--

An Early-Morning Seminary Teacher in Texas wrote (April 1999):
This quote is by Jack Marshall and is used by Brad Wilcox in his book "Tackling Teenage Troubles" on page 26 and 27. I called to confirm this just last week for our CES coordinator by calling the Church Office Building. It is being attributed to many of the Brethren but Jack Marshall is the one who made this statement.

I was told by the secretary whom I spoke with that Jack Marshall is a popular youth speaker. I have a bio on him in the book "High Fives & High Hopes: Favorite Talks Especially for Youth". It states: Jack S. Marshall is an institute director in Pasadena, California. He is a popular speaker at youth programs and has published articles in the New Era, coauthored a book, and released two audio tapes of favorite talks. He and his wife, Liz, have five children.
