Re: My Interview with Brian Hauglid is Up!

I'm about 2 hours into it. The surprising part to me is Brian being open about the process for writing the BoA essay. Has anyone ever talked this candidly about the creation of any of the essays before?

Re: An integrity crisis?

It is interesting how even Ex-mos don't interact as much as you would think we would. I got really lucky that DW and I both left the church at the time time. We both had the same trigger. While the individual paths and thought processes were different, we both came to the same conclusion at roughly ...

Missionary Health Survey

I got a message from Quitmormon.org where they are asking along a reporters request for information and I am passing it along to you: Dear [Zaphod Beeblebrox], We wanted to pass along some information about a developing news story that we feel may be of interest to you, or possibly even impacted you...

Re: Grrrrrrrrr

"We believe in being subject to kings, president, judges, magistrates, in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law." If the local government has banned large gatherings of people, then a good church member will follow the government's directions. I bet this will cause some cognitive dissonance for s...

Re: What’s the future of anti-Mormonism look like?

I don't know about accountability though. I think the Church will likely do what they always do - make a show of changing without changing anything. Put up window dressing and rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic. They will never, ever allow themselves to be held accountable for anything. I wou...

Re: What’s the future of anti-Mormonism look like?

I would think the future of anti-mormonism can be summed up with two words: Apathy and Accountability. Both are things that LDSInc is freaked out over. Apathy: People just not caring for religion and Mormonism. They have moved on with their lives and no longer need a bunch of old white men in a Utah...

There was a part of Bednar’s speech that was left out, as some heard him mumble under his breath .... “it is better for thousands of old and less healthy people to die, then for a whole nation of people stop going to church and dwindle in unbelief.” ..."and when they do die, we get a nice chunk of ...

Re: What To Do About The Police

I think there is a basic core problem that the average person doesn't trust the police. Even with simple stuff. I can't tell you the number of times that I am driving, at the speed limit or just above, and I get passed by a cop car going way faster with no lights on. Or I have seen police cars stopp...

Re: RMN deeply saddened

NAACP says the Church's reticent actions are little more than lip service. Indeed, the two organizations have collaborated on a handful of employment and education initiatives. But those were “minor efforts,” Colom said. They “do not befit the stature and magnitude of what the LDS Church can do and ...

Another Abuse Lawsuit

Two women are suing the church for failure to protect them from a child molester. In 2009 Joseph Neipp was bishop. A women notified the church that he was stalking her and her children. He was then released as bishop, but no mention was made to the ward as to why. So he molested at-least 2 children ...

Re: Another shot at church lawsuit

Sounds like the judge is doing his job.

There was no legal justification for banning gay marriage that didn't violate separation of church and state. Like it or not, churches can tell whatever story they want to people. This judge is just doing what the law says to do.

Re: A reminder about sexual predators

In related news, my wife got her temple recommend renewed over Zoom last week. The signed temple recommend was mailed to her a few days ago. This is, seriously, a good model for worthiness interviews because this puts the authority figure under secular scrutiny as much as the congregant under eccle...

I would like to say again at this point that Brother Tom Phillips and his wife were not among the couples that day. So it is not true his tale about the second anointing. For argument sake, let's cross examine the witness. How to you know today (5-25-2020) that this is the case of what happened? Th...

Well, LDS Inc held on to it for about 30 days. How much did they make off of interest with this?

Prophecy in Mormonism is like Nostradamus. You can only tell after the fact and then you have to do a lot of mental contorting to make it work.

Re: Horrifying Initiatory Story on Reddit

As far as molestation accusations from the temple, the thing that surprises me is that this is not more common. Sexual abuse of kids is rampant in Mormonism. Every few months some new case surfaces where someone in a leadership position is arrested for messing with kids. The whole system is prime gr...
