Fundy asked to return

After corresponding with Fundy this weekend I have decided to re-issue his invitation to participate in this blog as a regular contributor. I know this will dissappoint some of you but I feel it is important that all voices are heard on the issue of Polygamy. Fundy assures me that he will be a courteous blogger and I am willing to take him at his word.

Thank You
Weblog Administrator

Thanks Admin for your fairness. I too believe all should have a voice. Fundy was irritating in his manners. Many of his posts had interesting information. I hope he will take a good look at the style of the blog and add to it instead of trying to change it to fit him. It was a complete turnoff to see what was being done. Now behave Fundy! And welcome back!

Admin, you are a good man or woman behind the monitor. I just hope that Fundy will respect the other bloggers and not use colored fonts and post entire pages of information on the cover page of the blog.

Titles, subjects and paraphrases are appropriate, but not diatribes on the main page. IMHO

Please tell Fundy that we will follow the links if we are interested in the main thread. But to please refrain from hogging the whole cover page.

And thank you Admin for giving us this blog.

I have to admit, I usually pass over most of his posts. But the ones I have read...I have learned something new from and have helped my research.

And it definately helps the blog not become stagnate. Without him or OTS, we may not have anything to talk about. :)

Mark Twain

Once when Mark Twain was lecturing in Utah, a Mormon acquaintance argued with him on the subject of polygamy. After a long and rather heated debate, the Mormon finally said, “Can you find for me a single passage of Scripture which forbids polygamy?” “Certainly,” replied Twain. “‘No man can serve two masters.’”

What you mean, there, nonny. I ain't even posted once on this thread? What! You out walking in your sleep, or just flat out drunk on your ass? Now, THAT is perverted, and yes, the streets are certainly being swept clean.

Does anyone see the problem with this?

Adam was the first. Adamdam means Eden, more than one damsel.
