"Some are offended when we bring our religion into the public square, yet the same people who insist that their viewpoints and actions be tolerated in society are often very slow to give that same tolerance to religious believers who also wish their viewpoints and actions to be tolerated. The general lack of respect for religious viewpoints is quickly devolving into social and political intolerance for religious people and institutions."
Elder Robert D. Hales explains why religious freedom is necessary for us to exercise agency and fulfill Heavenly Father’s plan.

I can see you are very passionate about this issue. This is why you felt the need to bring up the topic in my posting. You have every right to believe what you feel is right and have a right to fight for your cause in the public sphere.

My only word of warning is to not fall for the temptation of using force of government to impose your beliefs on others. Yes you feel that you are doing those children a service and saving them from possible tragedy.

But know this. Compulsion is a two way door, and once you start down the slippery slope of imposing the beliefs of some onto the many, it will someday backfire and someone else's beliefs will be forced upon you. There are some people who believe just as strongly as you believe that the procedure is good for children and all boys should have it done. What if their politics became in power and you were forced to circumsise your child?

Yes I have seen the procedure performed in person. It was heartbreaking to see the baby's reaction. This gives me empathy for your belief. But I also have had it done to me and have nothing but good feelings about it, this gives me empathy for the other side.

We live in a diverse world. Individual freedom of conscience is one of our most prized gifts. I hope that we can keep the humility as a people to realize that our own perspectives are not the only valid perspectives.

It is far better to protect the freedom of your enemy than to use compulsion to remove their freedom. For without ability to make hard decisions, nobody can learn and grow. Life was never meant to be without trials. Life is meant as a place to grow character. This will be impossible if the freedom to make mistakes was taken away.

Good luck sharing your beliefs. Always do what you feel is right and I'll continue doing the same. We will live together in peace by sharing a common love for freedom.

After fixing the memory leaks in domChanger (my implementation of react.js) and adding support for pointer events, touch events and mouse events, it works well on all my devices.  That includes surface rt tablet, ipad, android tablet, IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari on windows, chromeos and osx (where available). :)

It even runs on my old HP TouchPad using an old version of android chrome.

No, it's made from scratch.  Also it's much higher contrast than solarized and has a lot more color.

That screenshot is just 4 codemirror instances with float-left.  It wouldn't be hard to make them resizable though using some ui framework/library. CodeMirror handles resizes pretty well.

"Today there are some who would have us believe our search for relevance can be satisfied only by obtaining position and power. Yet, thankfully, there are many who are uninfluenced by this perspective. They find relevance in seeking to be truly good and without guile. I have found them in all walks of life and in many faith traditions. And I find them in large numbers among the truly converted followers of Christ."

The new code mirror is really nice.  Test my new "notebook" theme and the new jack-lisp mode created for the course I'm developing.

I made a pair of very colorful CodeMirror themes from scratch.  Enjoy!
