In the April 2014 general conference, Church leaders answered many questions relevant to youth.  

Why aren’t women ordained to the priesthood?



“The divine nature of the limitations put upon the exercise of priesthood keys explains an essential contrast between decisions on matters of Church administration and decisions affecting the priesthood. The First Presidency and the Council of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve, who preside over the Church, are empowered to make many decisions affecting Church policies and procedures—matters such as the location of Church buildings and the ages for missionary service. But even though these presiding authorities hold and exercise all of the keys delegated to men in this dispensation, they are not free to alter the divinely decreed pattern that only men will hold offices in the priesthood. …

“The Lord has directed that only men will be ordained to offices in the priesthood. But, as various Church leaders have emphasized, men are not ‘the priesthood.’ Men hold the priesthood, with a sacred duty to use it for the blessing of all of the children of God.”

Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “The Keys and Authority of the Priesthood,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2014, 50, 51.

There are many questions related to the recently publicized Church discipline of Kate Kelly. I have searched today, some of the responses and related material the Church has made available on the subject on its public websites. 
News media are reporting today on a letter from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sent to a women’s group called “Ordain Women” regarding plans the group has to demonstrate for female ordination at the Church’s worldwide general conference. In response to multiple requests from news media, the Church has provided a link to the entire letter.

Feel good story of a returning Vet.....

Published on Jun 18, 2014
A retired Marine Corps Iraq veteran returns to the home he bought with his wife bought in January. But thanks to a friend and thousands of dollars of donations, they hardly recognize the place.

The surprise began with flags lining Highway 12 in Solano County, California. A trail of them, actually, leading to their newly renovated home.

But when Master Sergeant Jacinto Bernardo showed up in a limo with his family today, nice was the last thing they expected...

LOL  The BoM is clear there were NO other peoples there and have proudly claimed for almost 200 years that the brown skin of the Native Americans are a result of their being punished for their sins, like the Africans are the descendents of Ham still bear the mark of dark skin because Ham saw his drunken ass stupid parental unit naked.

June 28, 2014 From the Office of the First Presidency

"In God's plan for the happiness and eternal progression of His children, the blessings of His priesthood are equally available to men and women. Only men are ordained to serve in priesthood offices. All service in the Church has equal merit in the eyes of God. We express profound gratitude for the millions of Latter-day Saint women and men who willingly and effectively serve God and His children. Because of their faith and service, they have discovered that the Church is a place of spiritual nourishment and growth."

Smart Teen Exposes The Secret Political Money Trail They Don’t Want You To See http://b4in.org/c57x

Ever wonder where your congressperson’s political contributions come from? A new browser plugin is aiming to shed light on the money trail, and it was built by a teenager.

While there are already great tools to help informed voters look into what special interests are impacting local and national politics, such as those by the Sunlight Foundation, the new web browser tool is possibly the easiest way so far to get a glimpse into the often shady underpinnings of corporate contributions.

The plugin automatically highlights the name of any US lawmaker as you browse through the web, and a simple hover produces a popup window with a quick rundown of where that politician’s money is coming from.

The ‘Greenhouse’ plugin, available now for Chrome and Safari (and soon Firefox), displays both the percentage of political contributions to House and Senate members by small donors as well as those from industry.

The online tool does this by pulling in data provided by OpenSecrets.org from the last full election cycle in 2012.
According to the plugin’s 16-year-old creator, Nicholas Rubin, the intent of the tool is to provide greater context to voters, regardless of their political affiliation.

“The motto of Greenhouse is: ‘Some are red. Some are blue. All are green.’ What it signifies is that the influence of money on our government isn’t a partisan issue.

Whether Democrat or Republican, we should all want a political system that is independent of the influence of big money and not dependent on endless cycles of fundraising from special interests.

The United States of America was founded to serve individuals, not big interests or big industries. Yet every year we seem to move farther and farther away from our Founders’ vision,” says the self-taught programmer.
