Thanks to the freeper who brought it to my attention
Id like the discussion to address the handshake specifically, and what role this greeting has in the LDS culture
Open threads are a town square posters may argue for or against beliefs of any kind. They may tear down other's beliefs. They may ridicule, similar to the Smoky Backroom with the exception that a poster must never make it personal. Reading minds and attributing motives are forms of making it personal. Thin-skinned posters will be booted from open threads because in the town square, they are the disrupters.
Its not often you see a head of state performing a secret handshake.
In that spirit, I hope the mod is open minded enough to allow this thread to stand, as Bush’s actions and activities warrant free and open discussion
What's next a meeting with ron l hubbard (through Tom Cruse) and a discussion of Scientology?
In case you are wondering: liberal democrats, islam and lds.
HAHAHAH It's a conspiracy! GWB is actually a secret Mormon and the hand shake proves it!
Oh wait what's that? It's just a handshake? Well one of the shakers is a Mormon so it must be a secret one of some form that somehow GWB knows!
You should have paid more attention to editing the text than watching the handshake. It barely makes sense.
I’m just saying.
editing or the writing itself - agreed
but hey - if it makes you feel better about whats happening or helps you process the unspoken ramifications, have at it
islam= wants you converted or killed
liberal democrats= enablers of the above
lds= reliable conservative voters???????????????
I was talking about the going along to get along regardless if a group is a cult or not IE liberals, islam, scientology, lds, and etc.
I’m just wondering why there would be a handshake like this, whatever the origin, in a public meeting with a religious leader where it can be noticed.
How do you know it isn’t a Skull and Bones society handshake? Or a private joke between them? Or just a handshake? You really need a tinfoil hat!
That is really weird!
Is “W” A Free Mason?
I have never noticed W giving that handshake to anyone else.
It would be interesting to see if he has given the same handshake to Mitt Romney or Harry Reid or Orrin Hatch.
