Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day! The Great El-ahrairah wishes all the readers of the Warren a very happy Independence Day. For those of you not from Utah or a part of the state's dominant relition, Independence Day is not only a national holiday, but a holiday with religious overtones for members of the LDS Church. Members of the church are taught that an ancient prophet foresaw the events that would bring forth the creation of the United States in 1776. For the LDS Church, although there are members of the church around the world, the United States is "God's Country" and the words to our national anthem and other patriotic songs (my favorite being "God Bless America") are almost like hymns (in fact, the "Star Spangled Banner" is included in the LDS Church Hymnal in the US). So, as I segue into plug for Mitt Romney, what better man to elect to be president of this great nation than one who has been taught from his youth that the United States is a divine country and under God's protection and whose religion thinks there is nothing wrong with flying the US flag at it's churches and temples? Makes sense to me.
