The UN envoy to Syria is asking Bashar al Assad to step down. A Russian deputy foreign minister said that Assad's control over Syria is weakening. So what does the Obama Administration do? It riles up the situation by sending US troops into the fray.
If you see the glass as half empty, you are a pessimist. If you see it as half full, you are an optimist. If you learn to expect that God can help you fill your glass to overflowing, you are a synergist.
Anti-Mormon critics often set up as a straw man the claim that the LDS Church teaches that prophets are infallible. It does not. Antagonists cite, for example, the talk "14 Fundamentals in Following the Prophet" as well as the song primary children are taught called "Follow the Prophet". It is not fair to take such things out of the context of how LDS Doctrine is really established. Detractors from the Church do not make LDS doctrine. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does.
