Re: The Prophet Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

The 2015 policy decision to exclude the children of same-sex couples from Church membership was made solely out of anger toward the Supreme Court decision to allow same-sex marriage. To claim it was made out of love of God is a lie. It was a decision based on anger and the policy reversal was made b...

Re: Pres Nelson's BYU Speech Today

The fourth truth is about how God inspired the policy in the first place, but after President Nelson saw all the pain it was causing, he went back to God and pleaded with him to change it and God allowed him to do so. --Consiglieri I was under the impression that the fourth truth was "Hell knows no...

So many unique phrases of protestant theology in the sermons of the time appear as words from supposed ancient prophets. The one thing view of the Hebrews has is a provenance close to the Smiths and more closely t...

I got the impression that Fiona isn't much of a believer and is along for the ride. She actually made a disparaging remark about the GAs and said she prefers Harry Potter to the Book of Mormon.
Perhaps she finds the Dementors less scary than the Correlations Committee.

Re: If the Church went on trial. . . . ?

Pretty sure I would be the guy sitting at home watching the Church cruise around the streets of Los Angeles in a white Bronco. I would be listening for the line, "If the garments don't fit you must acquit".

Why does the Church always feel compelled to lie and then cover things up with even more lies?
Your question makes the Church sound a lot like Name of Politician Removed due to Political Hard Feelings. Just consider it "fake news".
