Re: Graceful Transfer of Power

SN, people are going to disagree with some of the things you say, just as I think you will push back against what I'm saying. Give us a rational argument, or a polite rant, but for your own sake "make allowance for our doubting too." (Kipling) Don't let a persecution complex cloud your posts too mu...

Re: Graceful Transfer of Power

This is pretty laughable. LOL My guys have already identified them as Antifa. One of them has a communist tattoo on his hand. The other one has some sort of tattoo on his chest was supposedly means some sort of fascist thing but I don't remember what it was. "Your guys" lack credibility. The extrem...

Re: To share your doubts with your children or not, that is the question

I used to say I was the poster child for failure to raise believing children, since all 4 of mine are non-believers at this point. For the most part I did it unintentionally, and even when I reached the point where I actually preferred that they leave, I generally kept my misgivings to myself, lest ...

Re: Church Growth in Times of Pandemic

I will agree with Reuben in that I am willing to own "offended". But with the proviso that the faithful and the disaffected talk past each other when they use the word. The faithful, speaking generally and not individually, when talking about the offended, are talking about "milk strippings" and oth...

Re: Writing Poetry as Therapy

From the Coffee Shop forum, I wrote a song parody. The link is below. The therapy aspect was in dealing with my frustration over how poor our leadership has handled the pandemic in America. Particularly frustrating is that a perfect opportunity to unite a people was squandered, with the exploiters o...

Re: My New Video: Building a Survival Shelter that Works!

When you cooked up that heaping portion of venison I thought you were channeling Ron Swanson. Not one to eat your food's food 8-) I am curious if you have read any of Tom Brown Jr.'s books. I had never heard of the guy until one of his books quite literally and mysteriously ended up on my doorstep. ...

Re: Lee vilified for tweets

I gotta agree with the penguin on this. It's all about the context. As an academic statement Senator Lee may be making a reasonable assertion, but in context of current American politics it is troubling. We have a liar-in-chief who is trying to undermine confidence in our election system, and a Repu...

Re: "Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Family Proclamation"

In 23 years Nelson will be long dead (and probably the next prophet or two as well) and I imagine the name stuff will be largely forgotten outside of the church's marketing which tries to hide the fact that they are Mormon while usurping the idea of a Church of Jesus Christ. In 23 years the name of...

Re: "Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Family Proclamation"

That's the only reason I'd go. In all seriousness, I wonder if they are making a big deal out of this, so Nelson can have his own 25th anniversary party for HIS proclamation down the road. Otherwise, that nothingburger is going to get...nothing. In 23 years Nelson will be long dead (and probably th...

It looks like concrete was a bad choice for the time capsule. A lot of the material was greatly damaged. Too bad. :?
If it had been preserved better they probably would have claimed a "miracle".

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

Thanks, Angel, for bumping the thread.

While they still have the money to provide the buildings where people can meet, they seem...
