Re: Houston we have a problem !

I’ve struggled with the same worthiness concept as well. Worthiness is so arbitrary. It is just invented. Here is how I look at it. When you go into a worthiness interview, it is like going on the set of “Who’s line is it anyway”. Drew Carey is like the interviewer. He pulls a topic out of a hat and...

Re: My son is posting anti information on FB now.

By saying posting anti-Mormon things are you saying he is posting the truths about church history that TBMs often deny as well as true information that is not 100 percent faith promoting?

Re: Christmas, Bah! Humbug!

I’ve disliked Christmas for a long time. Time with family, gifts, giving, food, sharing with others are all good things that are overshadowed by the huge money making business of the corporate Christmas. A few years ago, I broke out of this Christmas depression by adopting a family in need. We bough...

Sister Jones just spoke of her mother being sick for christmas and all the family desperately praying for a healing miracle which didn't happen. Do these people hear themselves?!? Has the day of miracles ceased?
No, they have faith not to have their prayers answered.

Re: Are You Spiritual

When I started my transition, I used to say that I was spiritual, but not religious.
I don’t think I’m spiritual now.
Spiritual for me is standing in the middle of a stream fly fishing. Whatever that is, that is where I feel closest to nature/Mother Earth/the spirit of greatness.

Re: Casual dress in church ????????

When I was TBM, white shirt and tie was the only way. Now I usually wear colored shirt, no tie, and sports jacket. It is a cultural respect thing. I usually wait until after the sacrament is finished and the deacons sit down before I open my diet Mountain Dew and sandwich. Some families feed their k...

Re: Observation #2: Salvereeno's opinion is off Limits

Several years ago after I told my wife that I no longer believe she asked me why. I told her a few things about Joseph Smith that bothered me - things about polygamy, the translation of the BOA and a couple of other things. I felt like I was really holding back and was trying to be as gentle as I c...

Re: Bras

Ladies, how many bras does the average woman have/need?

Re: Wendover Marijuana Dispensary

Yes, I signed up for this program a few weeks ago as it was posted on my Bishops office door. We will be all going to Delle in the desert and posting signs of free coffee and donuts. The idea is people will pull over at the lonely exit and then we will give out copies of the BoM and charm drivers wi...

Re: Hagoth goes down under

The genetic and archaeological evidence for the colonization of Polynesia is even more of a disaster for the BoM than Mesoamerican evidence. LDS prophets have confirmed many times that Polynesians ARE descendants of (the other) Hagoth, like for instance, the dedicatory prayer for the New Zealand te...

Re: Last Podcast on the Left

I listened to parts of a podcast a few weeks ago. Pretty funny. I was impressed with how much information they gathered on Mormonism and could then compile it and present in a meaningful way. It felt like they had some very scholared we xmos working with them behind the scenes

Hagoth goes down under

In the BoM, the character Hagoth sails away on a ship, taking a group with him. If I remember correctly, he comes back, picks up a new group and leaves forever, never to be seen again. Some have supposed Hagoth ventured to New Zealand and the people of the Pacific Islands descend from him. Question....

Re: Equality of pay for women

Why does pay have to be equal? The man is the breadwinner so pay should be more for men.
Besides, a women’s place is in the home raising and nurturing children, keeping it clean, and preparing supper for when the man returns from work...said every Mormon leader when I was growing up.
