Re: The church would collapse faster if...

I was really hoping more changes would take place after the Sam Young fast/marches. We know why minimal changes took place following this. We can't have a disaffected member be more inspired than the profit. Had something big happened to worthiness interviews, i.e., no longer conduct them, the missi...

Re: Korea missionaries coming home.

This could be a blessing in disguise for those that were struggling to stay out. On the other hand, if you're a greenie (and you're not the chosen one) you could just start freaking out like everyone back home and tell them you're getting on a plane. I think everyone back home would be ok with it.

Re: Why I told my kids

Wow, guess I missed that one. I almost had to do the walk of shame. Thanks DD for calling that one off. Also thanks to the kick ass bishop that married my DD in the mountains and who listened to me and DD and followed request to not shame or counsel in his speech. TSCC... destroying families one wed...

Re: The final curtain falls

If TBM kids are all married, I'm not sure why anyone would want to hang onto the TRs. Agree that TBM spouse can complicate things. Also I've always thought that they could just streamline the whole interview thing by asking the most important question. In reality I think they care more about tithing...

My favorite part "moms looking at other moms and their boob jobs"

I'd have to say that this was one of my early issues how we as nembers have the HG and everyone else only having the Light of Christ. What a joke!

I see people cutting out pages inside the Book of Mormon so they can put their cell phone inside there just like inmates hiding their contraband.

Re: Casual dress in church ????????

Alas...Well, I'm sure I could have seen what you are describing. We spent a few days at an Airbnb in Paris Idaho this past summer. Sunday came and I went home. Mom and dad had to go sit in church...ugh. Hell, my oldest brother had to leave Saturday night because he said he could not find a sub for h...

Re: Casual dress in church ????????

In Brazil you'd see many people in shorts and flip-flops. Nobody cared or judged you. It's amazing how one church talk from a GA can blow up and all of a sudden everyone needs to start wearing the white shirt and tie. On my "want" list is a sweater for those rare occasions that I do have to suffer t...

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...

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'm actually glad this happened in Utah but feel bad that it even happened. It's just a bigger deal when it happens here.

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...
