Re: Mission rules are now just suggestions.

I wonder if this is a response to the fact that 50% of returned missionaries are leaving the church or becoming inactive or that 1/3 or missionaries come home early, mostly for mental health reasons and for "health" reasons that are often cover stories for underlying depression or anxiety. I also w...

Re: How to Tarnish Your Brand in 5 Easy Steps

Is Medicaid State funded? If so perhaps the state of Idaho put pressure on byu-Idaho to pay for insurance. Maybe I'm way off base but I could see it happening. I mean a bunch of religious conservatives would never want government funded healthcare, would they? When I first read the story my first th...

Re: Breasts in the news

My city is basically a good city. A bit progressive. City and citizens aren't afraid of spending a little money to make things a nice place to live. Generally tries to be inclusive and treat people equally and nicely, but not always successfully. I wasn't at all surprised that this ordinance was pa...

This disturbing part of that quote is that this prosecutor thinks it is the job of the legislature to dictate morality.
Boobs don't even have anything to do with morality. The Utah legislature just think they do.

Mission rules are now just suggestions.

I saw an article on KSL.com a few days ago, It said mission rules are now no longer meant to be taken as a hardline black & white. The mission kids can now take a softer approach at the rule book. Missions may be slowly becoming less and less culty. When I was out missions fell into the cult categor...

Re: Adam and Eve possible?

According to 23 & Me I have Neanderthal DNA. I'm walking proof that A&E did not literally exist. That story makes absolutely no sense. Why should anyone take the A&E myth over the creation myth of Native Americans or the Aboriginals of Australia? Just about every culture has come up with a creation ...

Re: Four-year seminary graduation required for foreign missions

Maybe seminary is better than it used to be. My 11th grade seminary teacher was such a weirdo I would skip class and go to Carmacks (Main St in Bountiful for any Davis County old timers). They wouldn’t let me take seminary as a senior unless I made up all the missed classes. I took a 2nd photography...

Re: Book of Abraham

The church knows the BOA isn't real. If they really believed the papyrus was truly written by Abraham, they would have a huge museum to display it. If it was really written by Abraham's own hand, then about half the world's population would come to take a look. It would be considered the greatest ar...
