Grateful for Religious Freedom

With all the backlash from proposition 8 in California, I have taken time to reflect on what I believe. I am grateful that even in this time of opposition, I can say proudly that I am thankful to be a memeber of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In a conversation I once had, the question was raised, "What if you die and find out that none of what you believe is true?" My response was, "Everything I believe in makes me want to be a better person. How can I go wrong there?" There is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to be good enough to live with God again. Certainly better than what I would have to do in order to go along with what people are saying and doing to church members and church properties aournd the U.S.
