Re: It gets better?

My apologies for not updating this post. Not sure why but my life has turned into a living hell. This discussion is just one component to it. Man I must have pissed off gob.

I’ll update again when or if things ever straighten out.

Thanks for the thoughts.

Re: It gets better?

Thank you all for the wonderful, sincere advice. I really appreciate all the kind thoughts and direction. It has been so busy the last couple of days that we haven’t had any further discussion, but I’m assuming it will be soon. I really like the suggestions to gently ask her what her end game is for...

Re: It gets better?

Thanks Beast, I have really enjoyed your posts over the years as well. You and several posters from the old NOM have been great virtual “friends” through the journey. One time Hiding in Plain Sight mentioned he had visited you and that you were an awesome guy irl. I’ve often though how cool it would...

It gets better?

For 11 years I’ve been hearing people say “It gets better”. I kept hoping it would. But, the truce regarding religion with my TBM DW has been a stalemate at best, and a slow, glacial paced deterioration at worst, until today that is. Today the fuse to a potential relationship powder keg has been lit...

Re: Faith Crisis Report

They fucking know all the problems. They've known since 2013 This the fucking best they can do 5 fucking years later? This. If they’ve really truly had this information for that long, and they’ve done nothing to help support/counsel couples where one spouse is in a FC, then “F” them. They are respo...

Utah North Conference

Did anyone else have to suffer through the Utah North conference today with Russ Ballard? Russell mentioned the gospel topics essays and plugged Saints, and he said it was okay to ask questions. He also said that there were answers. He said that the church is completely transparent. (rotflmao) He wa...

Seeing as how I do not know what God wants I do not care
I think that John Larsen coined the phrase “Apathyism” (or something similar) for this belief system in one of his podcasts.

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

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-

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...
