Sorry, but Andrew Young is anything but revered. He is one of the divisive people on the left and has made many racist comments over the years. Kasim Reed is following in his footsteps, but being elected by 50.4 percent of the vote over his challenger in a runoff is not evidence of a new Democrat powerhouse. He only got 42,000 votes in that runoff. Sure, Atlanta is a big, international city, but it's run using petty politics by a relatively few amount of people.
Ron Paul will never be President.
Then you're an idiot.

If you take the verse out of contect, you can make it mean anything you want. Looking at the whole of 1 Corinthians 15 shows that it it all about convincing the people of Corinth that there is a resurrection. If it was something done by the early Christians, not only would Paul have referenced many other groups doing it, but it would have been throughout the writings of the New Testament. Verse 29 is refering to specific groups within Corinth. You have to look at the history of the area, and particularly Corinth itself. It was a cosmopolitan city that had numerous religous beliefs, apparently one of which included baptisms for the dead. Baptism for the dead is not something taught by Christ, nor was the early church involved with it.

And yet, ironically, while that is in the BOM, it is not what the church and its prophets have taught. “As man now is, God once was; as God is now man may be.” ( The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1984], 1.) D&C 132:20: 20 Then shall they be gods, because they have no end; therefore shall they be from everlasting to everlasting, because they continue; then shall they be above all, because all things are subject unto them. Then shall they be gods, because they have all power, and the angels are subject unto them. To be honest, I don't know of any other Christian church that teaches that man may become God, or that God was once a man.

You do know, don't you, that the Book Of Abraham has been found to just be a part of ancient Egyptian funeral rites, and has NOTHING to do with Abraham? They found the actual papyrus that Joseph Smith tried to translate, apparently with no success.
