Anger and intolerance are on the rise. I feel it all around me. I'm trying not to participate in the bad karma. President Thomas S. Monson dedicated a keynote talk to the issue of anger just a few weeks ago.

Citizens of this country have legitimate differences of opinion on how the nation should be governed. They are basic, bedrock differences that cannot and, I believe, should not be changed. Let's not give way to the lie that one partisan point of view is always correct and the other always incorrect. In the real world, both sides have merit, and both sides certainly deserve respect. But there are those who exploit these differences for their own purposes, predominantly political commentators.

They are purveyors of hatred. Their goal is to set individual against individual. They thrive on conflict and contention. They destroy respect between parties. It is what drives their ratings.

They have shown that they clearly do not care about the dreadful social fallout they are causing.

Obviously, the writer is referring to talk show hosts on radio and television, programs I seldom watch or listen to.

But, there are some things which are so inherently evil that they should never be tolerated, and yes, there are some things, such as eternal principles, that justify violence.

If that were not so, our United States of America, the former Republic of Texas, the failed Confederate States of America, and the modern State of Israel would never have been created.

Nor could The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints exist, for there would have been no constitutionally guaranteed freedom of religion to make it legally possible.

Today, just as our ancestors did in 1775, later in 1836, again in 1861, and as did Judah in 1948, we find ourselves poised on the brink of violent bloody armed revolt in order to restore our lost republic and our Constitution.

It is an inevitable consequence of contemporary tyranny, caused by the ongoing betrayal of the Republican Party and the Democrat Party deliberately rigging and negating the electoral process.

Thank you.
