The Church's law firm advocates depraved indifference to the victims in order to hide the crime so that the Church is financially covered.

Re: child's baptism -- help

Life will go on whether you baptize the child or not. Talk to the bishop, if they are a decent person then they will help make this happen. If you can do the baptism, you might as well grin and bear it. If they are not, you can explain it to your child when he is a bit older. Just because children a...

Re: The Church's Statement on the AP Arizona Abuse Story

Reminds me of when they argue that the retched child kept in the basement room to be tortured is necessary for Omelas to remain a golden city. Then it is time to just walk away.

Re: Church Statement on AP article - training of those who work with children?

In an effort to shield the Church from financial liability and publicity, Kirton McConkie has extended the duration and intensity of the abuse that victims receive. This action means the Church favors its own pockets over the welfare of its members. Is that bad? Yes, it makes Kirton McConkie and LDS...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

My kids took me out to eat for my birthday. We went to a Korean BBQ. I had a Tsingtao beer (#1 in China), and my son had an excellent Sapporo Japanese beer. Everyone else had Mike's Hard Lemonade. Usually, I am the one drinking non-alcoholic, so it felt good to cut loose and walk on the Terrestrial ...

It could be that Gen Z kids scoff at the idea of the coffee and tea plants being cursed as less valiant for growing too close to the demilitarized zone during the Heaven War.

Re: Husband accepted Primary calling behind my back!

A clear case of Primary betrayal.

I can't help but think those extending the calling were aware of reopening this wound. I doubt keeping the kids ignorant of Joseph's skirt-chasing is worth the deception and strife it has caused. Hope you can find some solace, Admiral H.
