Re: Bill Reel and General Conference Rumors

Well, other than 2 hour church, GC is turning out to be a revelation bust.

Same as it ever was.

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Morning

The hardest thing for me about RMNs talk is that I can’t even politely say anything to my TBM wife that would hint at me questioning or not fully agreeing with the Prophet’s message. Here’s a question: RMN basically said use of the nickname has snuck I over the years. Well, hasn’t god had a prophet ...

I was hoping he would have something important to say. Think of it. This is God’s message to the whole world-

“Listen to me ye inhabitants of the Earth. Don’t call us Mormons. That is all.”

Re: Dissecting Elder Cook on Church History

I really liked the podcast. Cook et.al responses made my blood boil. (His laughter at the first wife’s pain was just awful) I kept wondering though, in their commentary, why RFM or Bill didn’t reference Boyd Packer’s talk to the BYU CES audience that; there is a temptation to tell everything when te...

Re: Being Unnecessary

Not only would the TBM women in my life NOT strike, they would take up ardent opposition to anyone who DID strike. The status of women as special second class citizens in the church is an honor and a blessing. They are well behaved Church of Latter-day Saint women who know what it means to honor the...

Re: "Why I Left" Map

So, let’s say that hypothetically someone added a pin but accidentally marked the wrong house. Ya, I’m that dumbass. I couldn’t find a way to move it or delete it. Anyone know? I do know the people in the house I tagged and they are as TBM as you can imagine. They would be mortified to know this tag...

Re: Marriage Masturbation

My position is the same as that of the sage counsel from the apostle, seer, and revelator, even Boyd K Packer: “Sometimes the truth isn’t very useful.” Too bad the church teaches that a person’s individual sexuality is the business of so many other people, and that god is keeping score of when, wher...

Back to school blessings...

I don’t know why it bugged me as much as it did, but my DW asked me “how I felt” about giving my kids back to school father’s blessings to the start the school year. Honestly, I would have loved to have a family counsel where we had root beer floats and just talked about how much we love each child,...

Re: New RFM Podcast on Church History Interview

I’m through the first one so far, great listen. I had to make a quick comment on something that Bill said: Basically once a person allows for logic and critical thought, they no longer have “questions”, rather they have non-faith promoting conclusions. The talks from church leaders and videos like t...

Re: Elder Cook to Take on Church History Questions!

This is what I'd like to post: 1) In the Gospel Principal manual regarding honesty we read: “There are many other forms of lying. When we speak untruths, we are guilty of lying. We can also intentionally deceive others by a gesture or a look, by silence, or by telling only part of the truth. Wheneve...

Re: My list/summary of why the church can't be true... (24/25 complete)

Great list!

I was thinking that just the fact that it is taboo to talk about anything on the list, should be on the list. Also, gaslighting.

Re: Russell M Nelson: commander of an invisible realm

Are all of the dead prophets on emeritus status on the other side? Shouldn’t that side of the veil be their gig? Why does RMN need to issue a call to the other side as well? Seems like he should be focused with the living sheep. I wonder if all the prophets on the other side are given a modest celes...

Stephen Smoot went back and deleted an entire long sub-thread in which he showed himself to disadvantage. Fortunately, somebody saved the entire exchange. Where can we find this archive...
