Adding my Voice to the Fray
I have been pondering starting this blog for some time. My wife and I have a blog, where we post updates on our family (particularly our wonderful newborn and first born), but I wanted to start a blog for different kinds of posts. As the title of the blog suggests, I am young (relatively, at least -- I still consider myself young). I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly referred to as Mormons). And I am a conservative. I love my faith and issues of faith in general. I also love following politics and current events. Often, I find myself wanting to express an opinion regarding what is going on in politics and the world at large and, sometimes, issues of faith and my religion in particular. As can be expected, any such opinion is framed by my status as a "young Mormon conservative." Hence, the title. I doubt many people will care much what I have to say. That's not why I'm doing this. If you do care to read and comment on this blog, please be respectful. I welcome comments and questions and a healthy, respectful debate. However, any profanity or ad hominem arguments or comments will be disregarded and removed. Let the "fun" begin.
