The silliness continues...

Keeping with the theme of Mormon craziness... I just read this in Utah's Daily Herald. Thanks to a friend in NV:

Convention ends with Satan and immigrants

Utah County Republicans ended their convention on Saturday by debating Satan's influence on illegal immigrants.

The group was unable to take official action because not enough members stuck around long enough to vote, despite the pleadings of party officials. The convention was held at Canyon View Junior High School.

Don Larsen, chairman of legislative District 65 for the Utah County Republican Party, had submitted a resolution warning that Satan's minions want to eliminate national borders and do away with sovereignty.

How do these people get elected? Holding such beliefs is a clear sign of mental illness: belief in 'evil spirits' should be disqualifying for a driver's license -- yet in Utah it apparently helps you get elected to public office.

Suggestibility is a human trait. It is exploited carefully rather than explained in a good education system, which of course we do not have.

This is even worse... it's self-induced delusion: and by public officials no less.

Its like people WANT to move back into the Dark Ages -- where phenomenon are explained by witches, spells and black magic.

Laughable except that these people have power over us...
