Re: New message about choosing to believe

Making sure to say "the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" instead of simply saying "the church," quoting LDS scripture, a fixation with having a "testimony," echoing elements of a talk that Bednar gave... for someone that has had a faith crisis he sure likes to frame his journey entirely ...

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

Yeah, the 200th anniversary of the First Vision is a big deal, I guess. I think the LDS Church leaders feel like they can't let go of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and the restoring of priesthood keys and etc. Because if they let go of those things, what do they have left? Not enough to keep ...

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

A part of me thinks this extra special celebration was conjured up because Nelson realizes he won't be around for the 200th anniversary of the formation of the church on April 6, 2030 but he still wants to be the guy that threw that party.

Re: I hate to even have to ask this question

Background checks only turn out people that have already been caught. While it's a much better start than the nothing that's currently being done, the preferred solution is to stop worthiness interviews altogether. Stop them.

Re: Conversion Therapy

I would have thought that Oaks would know this does not work since he was president of BYU when they did all the awful experiments. I'm just sad. Maybe that's part of the reason they're fighting this. Similar practices occurred under Oaks' supervision and those practices are now considered illegal....

What changed with the recommend questions?
I didn't notice anything of substance. Just slight rewordings, possibly mashing up two questions into one, but overall identical to the questions before.

Re: NOMference Fall 2019 Sunday Afternoon

I guess the door to relaxing the WoW and garment use is effectively shut.

With the April 2020 conference announcement it sounds like it will run the risk of being a JS worshiping session.

Re: NOMference Fall 2019 Sunday Afternoon

"The temples are the crowning Jewel of the restoration." There is no Biblical indication that there would ever be multiple temples. The only certified temple acceptable to the Lord will be the one built in Jerusalem. All others are frauds. -100 I think that was (emphasis on was) one of the symbols ...

I guess the talk works for me if it's okay to consider the church to be Hobbiton.

Re: Womens NOMference 2019!!!

I guess they didn't do the same with YM (get rid of the prescribed 3 groups) because the YM need to be divided into the PH quorums?

Or maybe they did, I don't know. Cook was hard to follow.

Correction: She was just reading the theme, can't really deduct form her for that. Still, scrupulosity is a sickness rooted in the culture, all ages.

If this session had a theme, reading between the lines: The church is having issues not only with people leaving but with the people that stay refusing to hold callings. Get rid of the YM president, one less MP PH holder required to run the show. Women can be witnesses in the temple, fewer men requi...

-5 for "covenant path"
-10 for homophobia
+5 for the perfect hair. I’ll bet he woke up exactly like that this morning. Perfect hair, slept in his suit, straightened his tie and walked over to the conf center.
I prefer to think that they unplug him from his charging station dock.
