Re: Church apologizes for Racism!

Here’s what I don’t get. Why doesn’t the president of the NAACP call out Russ directly and say something like “Your second prophet said that the African race was inferior” (and then cite one of BYs horrific quotes). “How do you respond to BYs comments today? Do you believe he was speaking for God?” ...

Re: Incredible Message for Native Americans!

This kind of overt dishonesty pushes me away faster than anything. Yep. And it’s like the church is giving me the middle finger at the same time saying, ”We have your wife, your kids, your extended family, your friends and your money, and you can’t do $hit about it because we won’t let them think f...

Re: Cobra Kai

Honestly I wouldn’t have watched this if I hadn’t seen your recommendation and review, but I watched the first two episodes yesterday and I liked them. I was an 80’s teenager and I loved all the flash backs, the red firebird, and the rock n roll. 😀

Thanks for the tip!

God, Angels, Weapons, and Prophets

This post on the “Why I love the essays” thread made me think about a question I’m not sure I’ve seen answered before: Am I missing anything? Does this accurately rank "angel with a drawn sword" within the hierarchy of LDS restoration? As others have mentioned... If the angel has to show up with a w...

Re: Ex-Mormonism is just as crazy as Mormonism!

Probably, but I think exmormonism has a shelf life. Those who CAN detach eventually do. (Think Star Stuff, Bugoy1, GD Teacher, and all the others). They’ve all moved on while their TBM counterparts continue to perpetually cray. I’m on NOM mostly to keep my sanity because I live with TBMs all around ...

Re: In which crazies gonna craze

Tonight I’m really sad. For 11 years I’ve hoped that there would be any glimmer of understanding from TBM DW about my not so subtle change in beliefs. Sometimes, albeit very very infrequently, she has given me the slightest of hints that her orthodox rigidity would flex a tiny bit to allow me some a...

Re: Return and Report- Smelders Quorum Mtg the First

Bishop, counselors, and assigned HCer took our whole meeting telling us what they knew and didn’t know so far.

Also, “those guys” letting the rest of the group know THEY know it’s all inspired and proves we’re on the verge of a growth explosion. (Yep. You heard it here first).

Do tell! Mine was pretty vanilla, just the usual platitudes with a dash of "new prophet" adoration thrown in, but nothing too exciting. Sorry for the delay... We normally have a subset of the crazies every month to count on. Today brought them all up, and some of the fringies as well. RN and Leader...

I do want to spend more time outside. If you are in Northern Utah there are a few of us NOMs who get together a couple of times per month and hike local canyons on the Watsach front early Saturday or Sunday mornings. We’ve done Parish, Baer, Adams, lake Blance, etc. You (or anyone for that matter) ...

The good news is it’s all made up anyway so whatever you felt pressured into matters not. Made up yes, but unfortunately they’re happy to take real dollars from your pocket to sell you the fantasy.
