FBI Report: Crime Falls Nationally, But Climbs Again in Utah
As the nation celebrates a six-year decrease in serious crime, Utah’s crime rate went up—again.
An FBI report released Sunday showed that serious violent and property crimes went down 3 percent nationally. But crime in Utah went up 3.8 percent in 1997, continuing a four-year-trend.
Not only is the state’s crime rate climbing, but more Utahns on average are victims of crime.
Nationally, an average of 4,923 out of 100,000 are affected by crime. In Utah, the number is 5,661 people— 13 percent higher than the national rate.
Utah was one of 15 states whose crime rates increased in 1997.
In Salt lake City, 11,969 people out of 100,000 were victims of crime in 1997.

Utah: Salt Lake City
Nearly half of the 131 women killed between 1994 and 1999 in Utah were slain by husbands or boyfriends, according to a report released by state health department officials. They urged judges, prosecutors and clergy to pay more attention to the signs of domestic violence and to intervene before it escalates. USA Today

Do you need more evidence your assumption is wrong?
What just is a “born again” type?
Either you are born again or you are not - it’s really that simple.
Thanks for the good post, svcw.
I post these graphics because:
(1) I have heard what former ldsers and what well-read researchers have said about lds beliefs., i.e. the lds believes that God did not create everything out of nothing.
(2) I have had CURRENT lds people tell me that what I am saying is true, but that I shouldn't say it, because they feel uncomfortable about discussing the issue and its implications.
(3) I believe that God's WORD is living and eternal and that He can use it to scrape away false doctrines from the souls of people.
(4) I post these because the false doctrines of human pre-existence and of eternal marriage are FALSE. They are useful hooks to get people to stay in the lds, but those doctrines are USELESS.
(A.) They diminish the creative power of God, that He created our spirits out of nothing, and
(B.) the eternal marriage doctrine defames and contradicts the teaching that Christians WILL be married in eternity. We will be married to Christ .... but NOT to each other.
