Re: It's been a while. What next

With the ward members, I would think you could just fade away and it's none of their business why you aren't at church every Sunday. As far as family goes, I would think the same thing applies as being none of their business and I'm not sure if I would even tell them. I personally have never told my...

Re: The challenges of attending church

I did read a few of the answers here on this post. I do have to hand it to you guys that manage sitting at church. Thank Heaven for you guys it's only 2 hours now. I just don't understand how you can deal with the guilt tripping on tithing and temple worthiness. Even if my wife started going back to...

Re: Going to grow a pair

Good for you Macman! I had to grow a pair to stand up to my mom when I was in my forties since she was constantly quizzing me about the church. The wife doesn't attend anymore but is still TBM. My deep conversations and bashing on the church has to be left at work. Not to get off topic (like I alway...

Re: Bizzare Mormon Dr. replaces husbands' seed with his own

RR, you're absolutely right. An 80 yr old lady is not going anywhere with no skills, no personal retirement and she's not going to jeopardize the "eternal marriage." Kind of like when I was a kid and my dad dumped a pot of macaroni on my mom's head. My poor mom probably thought she deserved it. I kn...

I don't know how many times I've brought up this story on Reddit. How could his wife stay with him after this came to light?...oh yeah, do what you're told and follow the Priesthood holder.

Re: I hate to even have to ask this question

I'm actually glad this happened in Utah but feel bad that it even happened. It's just a bigger deal when it happens here. I want to say that KSL didn't print "former" bishop in the first news story like they typically do. This was pretty crazy news though. The hell with doing background checks. One ...

Re: Question about conference

HOAKS just needs to STFU now about LGBTs and the afterlife. If he doesn't know all the answers about polygamy then he sure as hell doesn't know the answers to LGBTs. Did his shock therapy treatment ever work on gays? Nope...fuck him!

Re: New firearms policy...stirring the pot

So my concealed gun is a .380 but when you really think about, I'm probably gonna be outgunned by most active shooters. I don't attend any more but it still worries me. I hope that someone in the audience that knows how to use a gun is packing regardless of this policy. I think I'd rather end up ali...

Re: Temple garments prevented neighbors from joining the church.

It wouldn't surprise me if there were changes down the road on garments. Anything to slow the bleeding right? TSCC likes to keep armor-alling the tires of the the 1970s car behind the house in the field that hasn't run in 20 years.

Re: Couples Married Civilly Now Authorized for Immediate Temple Marriage

JTG, that's how I interpreted at first. But, essentially you could be sealed in the temple the day after your civil wedding even if having sexual relations with your partner kept you from having the one and only true ceremony in the temple. Am I interpreting this correctly? Yes, that makes sense tha...

Re: Couples Married Civilly Now Authorized for Immediate Temple Marriage

Sorry, not sure if this has been asked...in the middle of a hiatus here of anything MORMON so haven't been on here lately. So a young couple doesn't have to be asked if they live by the Law of Chastity if there is no waiting period to be "sealed" in the temple? Basically they just have to answer all...

Re: Packing Heat

Talking to a member of the bishopric several years, I was trying to get his opinion on packing heat at church despite state law and he pretty much thought it was a dumb idea. He insinuated that no harm could happen in "the Lord's" church. I thought that was a pretty silly assumption. And this guy wa...

Re: If the church were to admit and apologize...

I've often thought about TSCC coming clean but they never will. Too much damage already done. Who's going to admit to or even apologize to "hey, we were wrong about excluding you from seeing your son/daughter get married." Or "hey, sorry we didn't counsel you and your ex-spouse to stay together desp...

Little River Band coming to Brigham City

Thinking about checking this band out in June. They've got several good tunes and probably a break from concerts I usually attend. This would be a good time for our family to chill at the park and I can reminisce the 80s.

FiveFinger, apparently they've kept that option when paying to SLC to keep the amount anonymous? If for some reason I ever did go back and needed a TR, I'd pay on surplus and direct to SL.

Re: Blew up with DW "No more Tithing!"

Hope your DW handles it well. Yeah, you need to go off of her income only and let her know that's the only way those bills are getting paid. Hopefully it'll stick after that. My wife only pays tithing if close family members decide to get married in the temple. Luckily we haven't had that happen in ...
