    Its the last “Traditional” by the way. Do you disagree with my article or just want to point it out for ridicule?

    Sorry about the wrong insertion, Jettboy. Actually, I hadn’t intended to misquote the title.

    But believe it or not, I do agree with you. In America in particular, the LDS Church is the last traditional moralists. The I-15 Corridor is the unique, monolithic bloc in America.

    But frankly, I am at odds with traditional moralism.

    Why are you at odds with it? I am honestly curious. For all I know my definition of “traditional moralists” are not the same.

    I’m also interested in hearing Todd further unpack his statement.

    Moralism in our culture seems to be this equation:

    Moral standards or code (Honor code) + obedience to those standards = righteousness for a man or woman

    But thank God there is another way.

    And what is that other way? Come on, explain yourself fully even if you have to write a whole post on the subject.

    Thanks for the invite, Jettboy. Let me try put together a post sometime next week, more lengthy than my usual little blips.

    And btw, sometime I would sincerely enjoy meeting you in person. You are not the normal bloggernacle group speak. Of course, what typical LDS Idahoan is . . .

    “You are not the normal bloggernacle group speak.”

    That is because I generally despise the bloggernacle. They hide their words behind thoughts and feelings that I suspect many of them realize are not proper (mainstream if you like) Mormonism.

    . . . and then claim that it is or should be.

    sorry, had to finish my thought.
