Re: Keys To Sexuality

It is absolutely about control, but a lot of it is about using sexuality to inspire guilt to get that control. You see, contrary to the Parents' Guide nonsense on the subject, the sex drive is very real, and very, very difficult to control to the extent Mormonism expects you to. Particularly in men ...

Re: Direct link to Plural marriage in Nauvoo

Thanks. When I click on this link with my iPhone, it takes me to the gospel topics page and not to the polygamy in nauvoo page. Do you suppose that church has done this on purpose? Let's put it this way: Anyone who knows even a miniscule snippet about decent webpage design can see that LD$-Inc. has...

Re: Why go to a "Membership Council?"

And you know what this tells us? The Church recognizes Church courts are a problem, but can't bring themselves to let go of one of their favorite control mechanisms. So they do a little rebranding and hope it will fool people. Does it tell us that the church actually recognizes the courts are a pro...

Re: Who’s next on the excommunication list?

Who's next? Who knows. It is an entirely capricious process. Whoever happens to be getting under leaderships skin on a day they feel grouchy. They seem to like to smack down women pretty quick, they don't want anybody riling the sisters with uppity ideas. But they are anything but consistent on who ...

Re: New Thread -- Netasha got exed

The farther I get from the dumpster fire that is Mormonism, the more ridiculous it looks. It takes a truly asinine organization to do something like this. It would be astonishing if it wasn't for the preceding two centuries of tomfoolery and and buffonery on the part of the Church - in that context,...

Re: Why go to a "Membership Council?"

While the relabeling is pretty disingenuous, the biggest lie in the whole statement is this one right here: As before, these councils are an expression of love, hope and concern, designed to help Latter-day Saints through their repentance process. Even as a true blue believer I always regarded the t...

Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

So everyone is busy tonight, and I decided to just try to sneak in a glance at the vigil for Natasha to see what was going on. Apparently, Natasha's computer wasn't working properly, so she wanted to use her phone to access her notes. They were so worried that she would record the council, they dem...

Re: An April Fools' Reminder: Mormon Youth Sex Interviews Are Foolish

Missed it. Well, it is April 2, so I will give a true news report and a question: The Atlanta shooting suspect's church has been caught deleting incriminating sermons teaching intolerance. My question, will there be an occasion where the LDS Church needs to delete some of this same type of stuff fr...

Re: A New BYUtv Show will have LGBTQ+ Characters

Hmmm...guess these poor characters will have to be completely celibate - no dating, kissing, marriage, relationships of any kind with those they are attracted to. That isn't 1/100th as disturbing as the fact that is what the Church expects of real, living people.

Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

Pretty dumb but expected. She’s semi-famous in the Mormon internet community and they don’t seem to like any competition. I seriously wonder if any of the GA’s and their respective spouses have ever had recreational sex. With the time constraints of Mormonism, the draconian attitudes, and guys like...

Re: Church updates handbook.

Now that I think about it, they start training priesthood holders early to be obnoxious pushy busybodies blind to the manipulative nature of things like showing up on someone's door step with a blue envelope asking for money. No wonder so many of them grow up the way they do.

Re: Church updates handbook.

The part of telling members to get vaccinated and not to commit affinity fraud through their numerous investment frauds and multi-level marketing pyramid schemes sounds good. Wish they would have added a line about giving back tithing monies that came to the Church directly through these fraudulent...

There are a million legitimate reasons for leaving the LDS Church, but this one should rank high on the list.
