The majority of online shoppers are unaware of various hacker attacks, phishing scams, and how they affect them. Not knowing how to keep yourself safe is the biggest disadvantage of online shopping. despite warnings from Snopes and other cyber "police" sites, the store may be a scam put up to gather people's credit card data and social security numbers.
Second, online shopping puts you at a disadvantage. You can't see and feel first hand or try for size your purchase. You take the word of the description of the product which is usually cleverly crafted by online stores to make it sound appealing to people. There is no hands-on inspection, nor visual or physical impact for product suitability. Only when it arrives at your address, do you have the opportunity to check the purchases for what it is advertised as. The greatest rip is the inaccurate transactions which could result in no savings or additional expenses to the buyer. this is probably one of the biggest disadvantages of online shopping that many people .
The second amendment says, "A well regulated militia being necessary to security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The second amendment was made for two things.
While the Founding Fathers of this country were developing the system of government, as set forth in the Constitution, many feared that a standing army controlled by a strong central government would leave them helpless....
While the 1995 case involved a federal law against carrying a gun within a certain distance of a school, this year's case involved a woman suing two men for rape under a federal law....
As stated by Elder Turley in the Swedish Rescue, the Church doesn't want to create a website that lists the historical problems of the Church. Apparently the Church only wants members to look at the essays and apologetic defenses if they already know about the issues. It's likely that the Church doesn't want its every day members exposed to these issues, at least in depth, if they aren't already aware of the problems.
Editor Comment: By only releasing the 'first tier' essay of each troubling issue this will just continue to validate the critics' arguments that the Church is withholding information. We don't know why the Church would continue to make this same mistake that it has already acknowledged has become a problem for many members.
It is also a misdemeanor to promote or possess "obscene" material, which is defined as "patently offensive sexual acts, normal or perverted, actual, or simulated." (Macavinta)These examples show that creating a new set of laws for the Internet are unnecessary because federal, state and local laws already apply to users of the Internet if they are in the jurisdiction of said laws.
There is a temptation for the writer or the teacher of Church history to want to tell everything, whether it is worthy or faith promoting or not. Some things that are true are not very useful.
The first result of these essays will be to validate much of what many of the LDS critics have said for years. Things that many members were told were 'anti-Mormon lies' will now be validated as facts. However, the authors of the essays tell the facts in such a way as to not make the issues seem to be faith challenging.
One such example occurred when America Online user John Delmarle was sentenced to three years probation and six months of home confinement for distributing "sadistic conduct" of young children through the Internet (Whitmer).
I ask myself this question, could the Founding Fathers of this amazing country have possibly envisioned a world in which teenagers could casually walk into a classroom, pull out a loaded pistol and cold bloodily murder their teachers and fellow classmates....
So where does this leave FAIR, Maxwell Institute, the Interpreter, and other 'non-approved' apologetic sources? It's clear from the that the LDS members want official answers not apologetic opinions. If the Church essays are thorough then apologists would become obsolete. Unfortunately, the 'approved' answers given thus far are very incomplete and they are likely to stay that way unless the Church releases the '3rd tier' of the essays. We expect apologetics to become less relevant going forward.
