I posted on my religion blog a recent talk given by Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Here is his reponse to questions about his talk.
Now watch this response by Keith Olberman
My response is to quote this scripture:
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Matt 5:10-12
