Re: "Earthly Identifiers" or "Don't Be Gay"

Are those old fogies trapped in a thick enough bubble that they don't even realize what they are doing? Or do they just not care? I think this is based on the unfortunate human failing of needing someone to look down upon. Remember how they could always be counted on to jab at those communists? Tha...

Re: The widow's mite, or the widow's MUST

This means the bishop or RSP filled out the form for 2 loads of bread, a stick of butter, and an instant jello pudding.

Another big claim in Mormonism is that the world lost technology after the fall of Rome. Hence the "dark ages" where the world technology level actually fell for a few hundred years.
Didn't Mormons claim the Dark Ages were less valiant in the Heaven War?

Gathering Info on Orcs

I have been hearing about Orcs recently and some of the information is both contradictory and disheartening. They say that Orcs will marry your daughters and wives any chance they get.

What is your experience with Orcs?

Re: Church 2021 Annual Report - "Caring For Those In Need"

Do they provide that info anywhere? I skimmed through it but noticed that they were intentionally vague throughout so you could never actually put numbers to any of the sections beyond the generic datapoints they wanted to give. Here is a further breakdown of info: https://www.reddit.com/r/exmormon...

Re: Church 2021 Annual Report - "Caring For Those In Need"

Almost all of the $906 million (roughly $850 million of the total) relates to fast-offering pass-through, solicited from members and given back to other members via Church welfare and Bishop's storehouse projects. Charity-wise, the amount was 40 million.

Whatever happened to the POX?

"POX" = ? The Policy of Exclusion. It was from the revelation that the children of same-sex marriages could not be members of the Church unless they reached the age of eighteen, formally renounced their parents, and obtained special permission from the Quorum of the Twelve. The title was a bit conf...

Re: Immunology, Immunopathology, and the BoM

The native Americans weren't immune to those diseases because they weren't actually around the livestock mentioned in the BoM. So the story was made up. Just because something didn't happen does not mean it isn't true. Moon probes may still discover the Moon Quakers if given enough time. Reading th...

The reason I am not pursuing Psychiatric Nursing is because I will not be specializing in disorders that may need medications and I have no desire to undergo a nursing program.
My mistake. I was confusing you with another poster who was already an RN. Sorry.

Re: Under the Banner of Heaven TV show

We watched the first two episodes and I thought, "What a very Mormon show". I can see why the apologetic LDS boards are so condemning of this movie and eager to set their voodoo pins in the show's director and actors. They want things sanitized, rather than see what happened. The LDS Church today wa...

I thought this post would be the perfect place to share some good news. I’m so excited to share that yesterday I received an acceptance letter into the MSW program that was my first choice. Congratulations! Out of curiosity, what prompted you to pursue an MSW program over a psychiatric nursing MS?
