Jettboy speaks as a true LDS Idahoan in his latest post: The Last True Traditional Moralists.

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.
