Re: Are there no GenCon rumor this time around?

Rumors usually swirl when people are excited for a particular change. A lack of rumors could indicate apathy is setting in. It could be the result of all the recent changes that have happened under Nelson's tenure that haven't really made all that much of a difference. If past changes are any indica...

I'm a racecar driver. I don't actually drive a racecar, but I could one day, so I'm a racecar driver. Joking aside, I think some of your steps are out of order. The new guy gets set apart in the calling within a week or two of the old guy passing away, regardless of the timing in relation to confere...

Remember when everybody was finding out about Ensign Peak investments and asking why the church wasn't using that money to help people? Remember when the church said that money was set aside by the Lord for a rainy day?

The church is definitely in retrenching mode, and likely will be at least until Susan Bednar's husband is in the grave.
You mean the guy who turns the young (for a prophet) age of 90 in the year 2042. That's going to be a deep trench.

Re: Oaks vows BYU will not be part of "the World"

His Pres. Kimball reference is dated- 1975 for crying out loud- and shows only indifference to those outliers who would like to attend BYU and won't because of being discriminated against. Same ol' same ol'. Rubbish. 1975? What else was going on in 1975? Oh, that's right. That's when the evil, evil...

Re: The Mormon church releases ANOTHER statement going after the AP

I saw this over on reddit. The church is trying to block the testimony of the ward clerk. The judge has ruled that the clerk is not a clergy member, thus clergy-penitent privilege does not apply. The church is appealing. https://www.myheraldreview.com/news/bisbee/lds-lawyers-aim-to-block-testimony-...

Re: The watering down of what is revelation

Strictly speaking, a revelation could be described as anything that reveals a previously unconsidered, unobserved, or unrecognized thought or idea. Which is certainly not something that could be said of anything that goes on in LDS meetings. LDS meetings are where you go to hear the same idea rehas...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Mike Lee's unwavering support of Donald Trump's criminality will endear him to many Utah voters. In Arizona last year, Lee was able to compare Trump to Captain Moroni. Makes you wonder whether Captain Moroni took home some of the golden plates and stashed them in his basement. Just the sealed porti...

Pretty sure you meant to bishops not do more than the absolute minimum that is required by law for reporting. Leaving out the word not changed the sentence's entire meaning.
