Illegally downloading music is against the Honor Code, BYU NewsNet reminds BYU students. So not only will corporate music's legal jihad against its customers threaten you, but BYU will pile on and kick you out of school. I don't suppose it would make any difference to the Honor Code office that the school's namesake was in violation of federal law most of his adult life with no apparent remorse.
The controversial LDS chapel in Park City is one step closer to construction, reports LDS Newsline. The city planning commission voted 5-2 in favor of the project, which the article notes will house three wards. The actual location is in Silver Summit, which I think is the scattered community of homes just north of where Highway 40 meets I-80. If the Church would just throw in racquetball courts and a small weight room to complement the cultural hall, I think neighborhoods would be a lot happier to host LDS chapels.
Texas sheriff visits Colorado City, reports the Religion News Blog. The FLDS Church is building a compound somewhere down in Texas, you see. They're a little nervous down there, after Waco and all. And I think they're a little sore about Alamo flopping too.
A Light in the Darkness is the first of a 3-part series on depression, over at the always-interesting Meridian Magazine. This one might actually be worth reading. It's written by a PhD in family science, although not an MD or a psychologist. Starts out saying "depression is not something that is uncommon or abnormal or sinful." Sounds like a good start. The Ensign used to run interesting articles like this until it got gutted by the Correlation Committee. Now it's mostly faith-promoting stories from junior GAs.
