September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Do Not Call Us Mormons or LDS Church, Leaders Ask

Leaders of the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Thursday called on people to stop referring to the faith as Mormonism, although the church acknowledged one of its central texts would still be called the Book of Mormon.

An online guide accompanying a pronouncement from the church president also asked people to stop referring to followers of the religion as Mormons and not to use the name “LDS” as a shorthand way of describing the faith.

“The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” church President Russell Nelson said in a statement. “We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will.”

Leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have long proclaimed their faith as Christian and fought any association with polygamy, which was practiced by early members of the church before they abandoned it more than 100 years ago.

Their latest campaign is related to those twin goals, said professor Patrick Mason, the chair of Mormon studies at Claremont Graduate University.

“For many years now, the church has wanted to insist that it is a Christian church,” Mason said, “and a common formulation, especially among evangelical Christians, is that Mormons are not Christians.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has about 16 million followers worldwide.

Thousands of others in North America, who are often called fundamentalist Mormons, practice polygamy, Mason said.

The emphasis on the full name of the church is one way for its leaders to distance themselves from those breakaway groups, he said.

The push by Nelson, who became president of the church in January, to discourage use of the term Mormon follows a similar campaign ahead of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

But that campaign had limited staying power, even within the church. The latest statement from Nelson was posted at mormonnewsroom.org and the church is still using the related site, lds.org, despite its disavowal of the term “LDS.”

A representative for the church could not be reached for comment.

Mason, who is Mormon, said he still expected to use the term Mormon, despite the campaign by church leaders.

“I think the likelihood of it sticking outside the church is low to negligible,” Mason said.
