Re: The challenges of attending church

I have just the opposite problem. I have lots of friends at church, and enjoy the association with them, but not church! We even have a standing invite from one family for Sunday dinner every week. So I go to talk with my friends.

Re: The Holy Ghost vs. active shooters

I work for the DOD, and we get training every year on "Active Shooter". The rules they drum into us is Run, Hide, Fight, in that order.
The same should work in a church, mall, or office building.

Re: Whats good on netflix?

Life After with Ricky Gervais. Very funny, with Gervaise playing a widow that is depressed with the death of his wife, so he has no filter Life After Dead To Me . Lots of twits and turns in every episode! Atypical very good show about a highly functioning autistic kid. Very funny as he says what on ...

A good listen, but be forewarned there are F-bombs and a very graphic incest joke about Donny and Marie, but is said to show what ...

Re: Temple garments prevented neighbors from joining the church.

What about getting tattoos of the marks on your skin? Just once and done for life, although excomunication might be painful when they told you you couldn't wear garments anymore!

Re: Will Nelson apologize to the NAACP?

Nelson did not apologize, but the guy (Brown) and introduced him implyed he did, maybe in private? From the SLTrib reporting on the event: Nelson did not apologize for the church’s previous racial policy, but Brown seemed to suggest the faith already had. The Latter-day Saints “had the courage to sa...

Re: Is NOM going the direction of some other online groups?

I think reddit (both /mormon/ and /exmormon/ has filled in where NOM once stood. Also the privite facebook groups are big now. I'm on several of them, and they also scratch the itch that NOM once did

Re: I think I want to be cremated...

Interesting fact: The reason there is a one-year wait from time of death to when temple work can be done? Because members would do temple work the day after a non-member family member dies, and then bury said family member in temple clothes! Then the big 15 heard about this, than implemented the one...
