Re: Tales of Tithing Settlement

Question on tithing. What percentage of each dollar armed in Utah goes to the church? For example, if I earn $1 and pay tithing on it of $.1, and then pay my kid $1 for chores, and he pays $.1, then on that same dollar, the church has earned $.2 or 20%.

Unwritten Order of Santa

I have some Santa and Mrs. Claus lawn ornaments. Does Mrs. Claus get placed on the right hand side of Santa? Or is it the left? What about elves and reindeer?

Prayer Circles

I learned something really unusual today from Reddit u/Mormon that in 1978 SWK banned the use of prayer circles from the homes, stakes and ward buildings. Arrangements could be made to do them in the temples. This was brought up in the Mormonism Live episode with Denver Snuffer. I haven’t listed to ...

Re: Seven Months Down. 53 To Go.

Thank you for the detailed report. It is always good to hear of how dependent people are on the church. When the church killed BSA and fired all of the young men leaders, leaving the bishop responsible for all of it, I knew it would be problematic. As a kid, I wanted to be part of the decisions on w...

Re: Snufferism is better

I’m still fearful or leery of religion. Religion tends to suck you in with platitudes that are appealing to the human senses, and then ask you for money and to sleep with your wife.

Re: Dehlin Alternate Reality

I think NOMs exist, but it certainly depends on each worldview. Dehlin seems to have developed a black and white world view. Either for or against. I don’t believe the church is true. I would separate from it immediately if I thought I could without destroying family stability. I just done think it ...

Re: NFL Team in Utah?

Would “The Covenant Paths” be a good name for a NFL team in Utah? It may be a hard pill to swallow while sitting in the stadium on Sunday (fake Sabbath day stolen from Jews) and cheering, “Kick A$$ Covenant Paths”…

NFL Team in Utah?

Utah governor Cox recently indicated he would Utah hard to get a NFL team to Utah. How profitable would that team be? Most games are on Sunday. No Utah, you can’t sign up and only play on Monday and Thursday nights. The average NFL attendance is about 70,000 people per game, unless you are the charg...

The way I understand it, everyone in the celestial kingdom will be walking around in their garments. So anyone from a lower kingdom will be noticed pretty damn quick! :lol:

Possibly all mesh with the 60’s style butt flap.
This makes sense with the recent survey on garments.

Re: Why does religion exist?

I think religion started out as a lack of understanding of science. Particularly, solar and planetary science. Then people figured out it was a way of gaining power, control and wealth and that is what it has primarily become. It is evident that Mormonism started as a way to make money. This is why ...

Re: The Branch is broke that is zero dollars !!!

I can’t think of anything be greed. The church is hoarding gold like Smaug in The Hobbit, and paying little attention to members. Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon. The church has been acting this way for many years. It felt like we had more control back when we had to raise our own fundin...

Re: Saturday Sabbath

The sabbath represents the seventh day when god rested. It is Shabbat, and the calendar named the seventh day after Shabbat: in English it is Saturday. Christians, including Mormons, stole the name and practice from Jews and moved it to Sunday, probably just to piss them off. Suppose in a village th...

Re: LDS callings: we've got it backwards

I like the idea of setting conditions and expectations with a calling:
Bishop: we want you to serve as nursery leader.
Me: I will accept if you install a small fridge in the nursery, a slurpy machine, and a cotton candy machine, and provide all of the supplies.

Re: What to ask the professor...

What was the greater miracle?
1) That president Nelson survived the firey spiral of death airplane where an engine exploded and flaming oil and fuel were put out by the spiral death dive
Or
2) That the safety investigation and pilot report indicated there was no damage to the aircraft.
