The branch president has the authority to tell you to not use your cell phone exactly to the extent you allow him to.
this. These are the kinds of stories I share when people say "we let people govern themselves!"

I've been personally piloting zero-hour church for a couple of years now. The breakdown is 0 minutes SM, 0 minutes break, and then 0 minutes SS/PM (alternating weeks). It goes by really fast.

Re: Talking around the issues

I would think that the kingdom of God should involve much more helping of the poor, and I would be supported scripturally in that attitude both by the Bible and the book of Mormon. Faithful members disagree. This is what I have been annoyed by since my disaffection. The absolute disconnect by TMBs....

Re: Shifting towards gay acceptance?

I came late to the drama yesterday but I read the post before it got deleted and I shocked my kids by reading them some of the more awful statements. All of my kids are millennials (I think) and I agree they won’t tolerate this bigotry/discrimination. I have one out, one with his foot out and two mo...

Re: The challenges of attending church

It's weird, I used to do 2 hours pretty easily but died at 3. Now that it's 2 hours, I can barely sit through 1. I have no idea how to handle it better than I am--I just countdown how many years I have left and try to figure out how to get out of attending as much as I can without upsetting the DH.

Re: Mormon guy's adoption scheme...again

I had the same reaction to #2. Felt like a gotcha moment. I also found it odd that he even commented. Don’t the GAs keep quiet until told to speak up? Isn’t the MO to let the official church spokesman make the comment? I have a strong testimony that Elder Rasband was moved upon the spirit of Kirton...

Re: Explaining Miracles

my favorite was when Yahweh appeared to Moses and showed him his butt instead of his face. I clearly didn’t pay attention in my BYU Old Testament class :shock: Exodus 33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a pla...

But I read on exponent that headquarters is changing that now and bill pay donations will be reported. I immediately emailed lds donations honestly expecting them to just confirm what they h...

Baby Steps

Read through some of my posts over the years here. It’s not a new realization but the reason my husband is ok with my faith crisis is because I have totally given in and for all intents and purposes am an active member. So today I reminded him that when the youngest is an adult in a few years I will...

Mormons are always trying to see them on other Mormons though...I’ve been garment checked by several family members and had a brother call me out for not wearing them.

Re: Loyal Christian's hanging onto mormonism

That would reasonably describe me. I am hanging onto Mormonism simply for family and friends. This is not something that would be a welcome discussion in your average ward. The LDS church simply cannot and does not let their members simply be "Christian". It seems that the LDS church operates by be...

Re: Fear as motivating conservative values

I used to talk about Satan like he was real but deep down I thought it was a little silly, like believing in the bogeyman. Like others, when I lost belief in God/Christ then Satan belief died too. When I started down this path a few years ago I definitely realized and acknowledged that my fear based...

I hear you. When my kids were little I wouldn’t let them sit by other people or go to the bathroom alone. The more sex offenders are in the news the more anxious I get about littles.
