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: Baby Steps

I love how your husband basically admitted Mormon church sucks. I would be willing to bet he will be secretly jealous of your freedom, and will gradually begin joining you on skipping out. Maybe an hour here and there and even whole Sundays at times :o.

Re: How to launder your G’s...

This is an epic post RR. As mentioned by Corsair, I especially love the part about hiring your own firm to audit yourself and then report to your investors that all is well. How do they get away with this in 2019???? (And how are they still a tax exempt organization?)

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

With the announcement of a conference like "never before" planned for April it seems we may be being set up for a "Let's all worship Joseph" year again. The First vision bicentennial is just an excuse maybe? And here I thought leadership had learned their lesson years back when they stuck Joseph on...

Re: Tithing settlement

I quit going to tithing settlement a few years ago. We’ve paid via bill pay for a while and had no push back. But I read on exponent that headquarters is changing that now and bill pay donations will be reported. I immediately emailed lds donations honestly expecting them to just confirm what they ...

Re: Vaporware Temples

Can someone point me to where it was revealed that LDS inc has 32b in stock market? I knew about billions in assets being speculated, but not that it seems to be confirmed. I want to share with my husband. We have been watching the Bill Gates documentaries (3 pt) on Netflix and I want him to see wha...

Re: Questions about YM changes

Thanks for the replies. I cannot get over how ridiculous this is. Like I mentioned, I could maybe understand for small branches, but we’re in Az. In the MorCor, there are usually plenty of men to staff these positions. Do bishops now have to teach and plan Sunday lessons?? And weekly activities?? Ho...

Questions about YM changes

So I didn’t watch any conference, husband and sons were out of town for a sports team competition. Thank you to all of you for the conference threads, I love NOMfrence :P So I am very confused about the YM changes. There’s no more YM presidency? What about quorum advisors? Our YM was recently re-org...

Re: Pres Nelson's BYU Speech Today

Wow. So God hates gays, but Russ loves them and has undying compassion for them. So he begged and begged God to reverse the hateful POX and God conceded to Russ’ infinite love and wisdom. Russ just tried to convince Mormon youth that he is better and more loving than God. I feel he did more harm tha...

Re: Mass disclosure

Slavereeno, sorry for how stupid and culty Mormonism is and that they have your family fooled into thinking there's something wrong with you for not worshipping a child pedo, and leaders who taught that God hated blacks til 1978 and gays and women til 2019 (but doesn't condone women being used as se...

Re: Calling Ourselves Mormons Is "Acceptable" Again

I am trying to understand the reason for this update. The name change was stupid and annoying, but not a complete PR disaster that caused members to leave etc like the POX. And people were kind of following it, so it gave Nelson (supposed) power. I don't get it. Were they having a hard time renaming...

Re: Running out of post power--and interest...

Being out and away from the Morcor, I like to come here for updates on the slow demise of the church. Some of the topics discussed aren't all that close to my heart so I don't comment on them when I feel I have little to offer. About six weeks ago I was involved in a fairly traumatic horse accident...

Re: The Letter.

I am sorry. I like your idea of saying you distanced yourself for mental health. Something like “thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and feelings with me. After careful consideration, I needed to distance myself from Mormonism due to my personal beliefs not aligning with their past ...

We are here in Park City this week w/ our kids including our SIL who has never been to Ut or SLC. We plan to go to SLC tomorrow afternoon/evening, and go to dinner. What are some of your favorite places to eat?
