Re: What's all this talk about coffee

No way they can permit coffee. One day it is keeping you out of the temple and therefore from salvation, and the next it's OK? It won't happen. If they want to change that rule they need to first take the word of wisdom question out of the temple recommend questions, then after about 5-10 years they...

Re: The Corbridge Manuever--New RFM Podcast

That talk is so mired in its self-affirming assumptions as to have no actual meaning. Right! The test I always put things to is: "Would the use these same methods of finding truth lead a Muslim, or Hindu closer to the truth, or further into the bosom of their own faith?" Corbridge and so many other...

Palerider... I salute you.

Oh... and my understanding is that the average congregation size was also decreasing, at least in some areas.

In other news, one more sister joined me in apostasy. Yay for not being so alone!

Is the women’s veil even necessary to wear now?

What’s the point of wearing it if it’s not going to be used to veil the face?
Are they still going to cover her face with it before they close her coffin?
Yikes! I forgot about that.
Me too. What a terrible custom.

This is being shared elsewhere: These changes seem like changes that both make sense and seem reasonable, so I am inclined to believe this report.

Re: Coffee 101

I made a mistake... I learned that a Starbucks Macchiato has no real relation to an Italian macchiato, which is just espresso with a dollop of foamed milk in it. A Starbucks Macchiato, on the other hand, is basically foamed milk with some bonus flavors like vanilla syrup and caramel. Also one that I...

Resigning, now all this coffee talk; you may have to change your name "Goodboy" ;)

Thanks for the map through Starbucks.

Coffee by any name still tastes as good.......
Haha! I think you're right! I've been a little more naughty with all my coffee drinking lately.

Coffee 101

How to interpret the Starbucks menu options: Almost all of the drinks that I didn't understand are made with espresso. Espresso is a quickly made, and very concentrated coffee made by forcing hot water at very high pressure through very finely ground coffee. HIgh pressures are required because the c...

Re: What's the shelf life of a NOM?

Why do some people process quickly and move on while others seem to stay stuck in limbo forever? Good question! I have some hypotheses however... People who tend to stay as a NOM tend to: * Not be black-and-white thinkers. * Have little difficulty fitting into church culture. * Have friends and fam...

He's Lost the Spirit

I watched one of my students, who was raised Muslim but doesn't believe in Islam, eat pork in front of other Muslims and he acted like a whipped puppy. Maybe because he knew he was being judged by his peers. His behavior was interesting to me because what he was doing wasn't wrong and he knew it. Pa...
