Re: Morrissey and the Church

As humans we tend to see our idols and roll models with rose colored glasses. Whether they be musicians, athletes, performers, politicians, scientists, historical figures, etc, we tend to only see the good stuff about them that fits our paradigm. The tint of these glasses can grow with time, to the ...

Re: Second anointing and the priesthood

This is why women cannot be ordained to the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Because he (Jesus) is not her lord. Her husband is her lord. Well, that makes sense, in a weird, sick sort of way... In the temple endowment a women is told that she will be a priestess “unto” her husband. So if a woman is invo...

Re: Monumental stupidity to faith promoting story

My mom is normally the more TBM of the two, but I will say, as funny and faith promoting as my dad finds it, she is much less impressed with the experience.

Re: Happiness in Sacrament Meeting

I think to some degree people are pressured to be happy, or at least make everyone think they are. This isn't a church thing, it's a social media thing. How many people do you know on Facebook that only talk about how great their life is. How good the kids are, how great their vacation was, how pret...

Re: Saints 2: No Unhallowed Hand

No mention whatsoever that the church claimed the Native Americans were the literal Book of Mormon descendants, no mention that the Saints felt they knew a LOT about the 'Indians' because they were Lamanites. Am I wrong or is this just a complete rewrite of Mormon history? If they are going to talk...

Monumental stupidity to faith promoting story

My TBM parents decided to take a three week cross country drive to see the sites, visit old friends, and be good Mormons. My parents are mid-late 60s, but my dad had "health problems" that are so severe that he can't do much more than watch TV for 10-12 hours a day. Taking the riding mower out is su...

Re: Taking indefensible position?

One question you may want to look at is were you a real porn addict? A porn addiction according to the church and according to clinical psychologists are two completely different things. I would not trust the diagnosis of any Mormon therapist. I have had issues with trained therapists who were Mormo...

Re: The Great Rib Debate

It is interesting what the implications are with this discussion. I don't care for the actual discussion itself, but what it says about the positions people have on it. If you take the Bible literally, that the earth was made in 6 days, ~6000 years ago, then by that logic, you would almost have to c...

To be fair, when is he not going off on a hate fulled rant? I have not heard anything about it. Of course I'm well outside the MorCor.

Thanks for the status update e-mail that got sent out to everyone on Saturday. It's appreciated. It's was good to know it was a software issue and not the board just up and disappearing like the first one did.

So my thanks for your efforts to mange the site and be transparent on what is going on.

Re: Thrive

That was actually one of the major things on my self. The local church pushing sales of this stuff through...

Re: Den of Sin

Even as a TBM in college, I was introduced to Starbucks and found a number of things that I could get there that were 100% WoW Approved. Smoothies, non-coffee frappe's, flavored cocoa, etc. I got rather fond of cocoa with various hots of syrups in them. Plenty of ways to fit in with the non mormon c...

"Den of Sin" refers to the proposed StarBucks. That came from one of the headlines I saw about this. Make any appropriate jokes you want.

Re: My Journey out from the flock, Getting a Coffee Maker

Pick up a cheap drip style unit. You can get them for as little as $20 at Walmart, cheaper if you get one without the timer. If nothing else, this is good education for the in and outs of coffee, My first one was a Kureg as well, but they are a pain to maintain. Mine eventually got to be too much ha...

In the Martinsburg WV case, one of the parents of the children abused suffered a stroke while the trial was on going. After the stroke, he was different. At one point he went on a public tirade claiming that the church was trying to kill him. Fortunately, the trial was winding down at this point and...

Re: Skipped 2nd Hour with DS

This week was priesthood and I don't go to that, so I told my son I was going home and he could decide if he wants to go to his class or come home with me. Also that if he came home he would have to spend 30 minutes cleaning or serving somehow. I cleared the offer with DW before talking to DS. He h...

So if BYU "accidentally" lost or destroyed all their documents, what then? Can a class action suit be filed against them for obstruction of justice?
