Perhaps dirt is the necessary condition of beauty…. Perhaps hygiene and art can never be bedfellows. No Verdi, after all, without spitting into trumpets. No Duse without a crowd of malodorous bourgeois giving one another their coryzas. And think of the inexpugnable retreats for microbes prepared by Michelangelo in the curls of Moses’ beard!
If we’re talking about Sinai, we can’t understand it without the 1967 and 1973 wars, and you can’t understand it without the biblical story of Moses leading his people through the wilderness. These are essential elements in the modern conversation about what’s going on in the Middle East that seem to have been lost.
President Hinckley is not only a living prophet but also a living seer. He sees things that others do not see. He has the gift of discernment; he is an optimist and a realist. . . . Through President Hinckley’s divine guidance, the Church has received many far-reaching blessings, many that are not obvious. I strongly encourage each of you to more closely follow his counsel and guidance, for truly ‘a seer hath the Lord raised up unto his people’ (Moses 6:36).
We hear a lot about theological justifications for the conflicts, but very little about the scientific evidence, which in no way supports them. The time period in which Moses was leading his people out of Egypt, into the Promised Land, the Promised Land was Egypt. We know that. Archaeological records are very clear.

There’s a lot of food restriction in the Bible, but it does say you’re allowed to eat crickets, grasshoppers, and locusts. I decided to take advantage of that and eat a cricket. It was chocolate-covered, and I’m not sure that’s the way they were served in Moses’ time. But this was a rule that seemed crazy on the outside, then actually turned out to be pragmatic and compassionate.
No legal ceremony–no election of the woman–no penalty for the perfidy of the man–no law to compel him to do his duty, no compensation for the poor woman who is turned adrift like the girl of the street, penniless, to sell herself on the best possible terms. This is Divine marriage, or Moses and the Bible lie; and this is Bible divorce–putting away!
Americans’ deepest religion is often equality. The notion that Christ alone is God-superior, authoritative, supernatural-and that Christ’s teaching and person is far greater than Buddha’s, or Muhammad’s, or Moses’s, no matter how much great and good wisdom may be contained in those others, is scandalous.
Thus, after a period of about two thousand years the greatest crime became to worship a god other than the God of Moses, whereas injustice became a minor sin. I began to ask myself how this change had come about. Was it linked to a new order in which the female goddesses had been replaced by one male god?
