Re: Church Spokesman Dishonesty - Bishops are "Volunteers"

So let me get this straight, bishops and high counselors and stake president are all volunteers? Therefore, general authorities are somehow not volunteers because they are paid. A volunteer is unpaid while a non-volunteer is paid. So does that settle the argument of whether or not general authoritie...

Re: "We don't say that person is gay..." - I'm furious about labeling

Do you think Dallin Oaks controls all of the thought and discussion points around the gays for all of the GAs? I wouldn’t be surprised if their discussions are all scripted and they have stay within the gay boundaries that Oaks has circumscribed.

Hmm...if even half of what John Dehlin claims to have found out about this guy is true, he is a real piece of work: https://www.mormonstories.org/podcast/steven-murdock/ All those years I thought the bishop could read my mind while I was in his office, and here this guy gets away with all kinds of ...

I suspect Mr. Oak’s death at some point in the future will be highly celebrated, similar to BKP.

Re: Tithing Question + An Introduction

Welcome to NOM. We have all been in your exact position. My anger toward the church is subsiding a bit, but not a lot. I still feel deceived. I have a TBM wife and play the role of good Mormon husband, but only go to church 1-2 times per month. The link to Rock Waterman’s article on tithing has alre...

Re: Bishopric -> EQP: And I feel.... numb.

I think the stupor of thought you have is because you were probably hoping to finish your BP counselor job and then check out. Now you’ve got another few years. Some ideas: Teach lessons from the gospel topics essays. Hold monthly open meetings to discuss doubts and other problems most people are af...

Re: Green tea is officially bad for you, against WoW

The big irony is that everyone outside of Mormonism knows how healthy tea is. It’s almost like if the church came out and said that water is bad and must be avoided Ike the plague. Our church is looking more like the cult it is. This should really help the church expand in Asia.

Thanks for posting this Hermey. I thought it was a great article, and it really sheds a bad light on the Mormon culture.

Re: Required training to prevent abuse

I will likely have to take this training. I doubt it is anywhere close to the BSA training. I also doubt a background check is required either.
Still sounds lame.

Re: Ed Smart comes out as gay

I read somewhere on Reddit that Lois Smart filed for divorce on July 5 ( something like that). So the family has been dealing with this for more than a month prior to him being outed to the world. I also read a statement from Elizabeth that was very supporting of her father and mother and family. It...

Ed Smart comes out as gay

The father of Elizabeth Smart has come out as gay. A very good article in the Deseret news explains. Interesting, it speaks of him going through a change of beliefs (in the church it seems) that led to him being able to come out. Discuss. https://www.deseret.com/2019/8/15/20807894/ed-smart-father-of...

KSL websites go down: Satan at work

I just saw an article on KSL about a power outage. Didn’t really read much though.
How long before people start saying it was Satan trying to disrupt the efforts of the church?
