Re: NOMference Saturday afternoon!!!

Several comments on r/exmormon from people tracking this. Be interesting to compare transcripts between live and published Oaks talk.

Elder Cook face to face transcript?

Does anyone know if there is a transcript of the Elder Q Cook face to face on church history? I have not been able to google one up.

Re: MormonLeaks releases audio of bishop speaking with YW after firearm discharges in building

I'm pretty sure guns are banned from church buildings even if you have a concealed carry permit. This is why, you dont want untrained people bringing loose, loaded pistols into a house of worship. I think its in the Handbook even.

Same here! What a great group and family you have. Nobody ever smiled that much in a church meeting.

Have a great day,

Re: psychedelic fungi in Burned-over District, early 1800s?

If you want to read a really fascinating book that talks about the therapeutic and spiritual properties of these substances I highly, highly, highly recommend Michael Pollan's How To Change Your Mind. Hagoth, I'm reading that book right now! It's what got me thinking about psychedelics in Old Joe's...

Re: Why hasn't Archimedes Resigned Yet?

I think your choice is a good one. About the revenge thing, it is, at least for me, satisfying to fantasize about sweet revenge. While it's a great thought, it is something I never acted on. I know I would feel a lot of regret if I had. Part of healing is in letting go. Anyway, a better revenge is ...

I am glad there is NOM and that I can see all you are out there, but we are waaaay fewer and further between than any of us would like to admit.

Re: Why hasn't Archimedes Resigned Yet?

Well the time for me is now. I cant think of a better cause to throw in with than Sam Young's.

This will be good, a clear demarcation of a new life path. Look for me at Tri-cities this Sunday. And pray for Sam. I dont know the man but i think this whole thing is really hard for him.

Tri Cities WA Sam Young vigil

Is anyone else going to the Tri Cities, WA Sam Young event on Sunday? It's only a 4 hr drive for me [along the scenic Cokumbia River gorge!]. Surprised there is not one in PDX. Info available on the angry reddit board, the pinned thread for all sam young events. Would love to meet anyone else IRL if...

Thanks for the links, I thought this was a topic that had been explored by others.

Interesting to speculate, but as WTFluff points out we will never know for sure.

Re: Why hasn't Archimedes Resigned Yet?

Yes, I'm starting to see Letting Go as being a lot healthier than hoping for a sweet revenge in the future. Karma has kicked me in the ass pretty good this past couple of years, no need to engender even more negative Karma. You are wise, thank you.

Why hasn't Archimedes Resigned Yet?

First I would like to thank the NOM forum and its various participants over the years, for providing me refuge and mental stimulation during my long period of trying to make a mixed-faith marriage work in the Mormon church. A little less than 2 years ago my DW left me, sons, grandsons, and the life ...

psychedelic fungi in Burned-over District, early 1800s?

I am just looking into new research on the use of psychedelics to treat mental health disorders like end-of-life anxiety, depression/anxiety and others. ​From my own (not so recent) experiences with LSD and mushrooms, I do recall that they open one's mind to new realities; and can in some cases feel...

Re: McKenna Bears Testimony in Bishop's Ward

If that bishop got sued personally I'm not sure the church would fund his defense. Church lawyers are only there to defend the church against its many enemies. Volunteer clergy get hung out to dry. Why anybody would ever accept that job I have no idea.
