Being Gay in a Strait World

Though I am not gay, I often wonder what people would think of me, judged of me, if I were to come out. Even now those people may wish to have some assurance, but what should I say to assure you? First, why do you need an assurance? Fine, well, if you know me at all, you know […]

Kritzinger’s Warning To The Media and Rioters In Ferguson.

HBO produced a film several year ago called Conspiracy. The movie was about the Wenesee Conference, which was a secret meeting held by some of the high-ranking officials of the Nazi party. It was at this conference where Reinhard Heydrich revealed his plan in how to carry out the “final solution.” The movie closed with […]

I have never once spewed hate toward the Church that I love. I have never uttered a single anti-Mormon sentiment. […]

I can’t help it. I cannot keep quiet. But I should preface this post with something reaffirming in an attempt to protect myself from some kind of backlash. I have a solid testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which fullness I believe one finds in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I […]

Where Do the Tyler Glenns Go?

I am an emotional person. In fact, I sometimes allow my emotions to control me, and that often leads me in the wrong direction, leaving me with regrets great and small. One emotion I keep to myself in most company (close family the only exceptions) is sadness. While I cry, and I have cried often, […]
