Bila pendidikan mengajarkan sopan santun kelak akan muncul anak yang sopan dan santun, bila pendidikan mengajarkan kekerasan kelak akan terlahir generasi-generasi anarkis, dan begitu pula bila pendidikan menanamkan jiwa pluralistik dan multikulturallisme, kelak akan lahir manusia saling memahami, menghormati, dan menghargai eksistensi masing-masing dalam kehidupan damai dan demokratis. Hal tersebut dimaksudkan sebagai pernyataan dan semangat bangsa Indonesia yang menjunjung tinggi perasatuan meskipun negara dan bangsa Indonesia terdiri dari keragaman yang begitu kompleks. Dengan demikian meskipun disadari keragaman budaya yang kompleks, dalam kenyataan kehidupan bangsa Indonesia, kesemua itu dapat dirangkum dalam kesatuan yang kokoh dan teguh. Dalam perkembangan perjalanan sejarah bangsa pernah terjadi bahwa keragaman etnik dan pluralisme budaya dianggap tabu untuk masuk kedalam domain publik. Negara menjadi represip untuk mengakui dan menghargai keragaman budaya, dimana isu SARA menjadi momok dan harus dipendam, dan hal itu menyebabkan menjadi laten dan sensitive.

I work 54 hours a week to be able to support myself my family is unable to help more than they already arevolunteer, am taking a class, and mcat studying. That and this recent article https: They are trying to explain how it's ok that the founder used a magic rock to hunt for buried treasure to earn money, and then used that same "seer stone" to translate the Book of Mormon. Ultimately, it comes down to this. To others making this consideration, I would certainly suggest that you converse with your Father in Heaven about this important choice. The way he wanted to live his life, the family he wanted to have, the wife he dreamt of- matched the type of person I longed for. Now after reading this blog I feel like I made the right choice. And Mormons were basically encouraged to marry other mormons. So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity.
And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. The important part of finding a partner to marry does not, in my opinion, revolve around whether or not you are of the same religion. I try to be understanding but I find myself getting so angry.
