Re: How to Tarnish Your Brand in 5 Easy Steps

Why is it they can't keep from stepping in it. Anyone in the business of getting information from COJCOLDS needs chest waders. It seems Oaks' Where Will This Lead went completely unnoticed by internal consumers. This quote is such a gem. How many churchocrats did it take to wordsmith this down to su...

Re: Richard Dutcher's Films Are on Amazon's Prime Video

Thanks, Ghost, for the tip. I probably have a VHS of God's Army. I also saw Brigham City in a theater. But I really wanted to see States of Grace and missed the opportunity when it was out. I do have Prime so I found it and watched it. I actually found that movie very moving. In fact this movie help...

Re: Humor to Soften Truth

I remembered how I LOL'd at this scene when I was TBM.

Some people just can't talk about religion.

Re: Bob McCue: The Church is like a Narcotic

I want to add that to the "one liner" thread. "I individuated" Yes, another fine variant of my favorite one liner. Individuative/reflective is the title Fowler uses for stage 4. Individuation is a normal part of human development that high demand groups suppress for their own ends. Bob McCue was on...

Re: Are You a Failed Parent?

I certainly felt like a failed parent as a believer. Now I can brag to the NOM, post-mo crowd that I haven't raised a single adult tithe payer. The weight of the failure was crushing as a believer. I very much worry about how my TBM wife handles the burden. Does she have amazing confirmation bias de...

Re: Harold Bloom Dies

He also did an op-ed in the NYT when Romney was running for president. In it he explained what "the American religion" is. The emancipation of greed. Fits corporate Mormonism very well.

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

I cannot devote my life to an organization I find to be neither true nor truthful.

I cannot fit reality inside the church's box.

With a nod to Hermey: What's good about Mormonism isn't unique and what's unique isn't good.

I found blind obedience to be incompatible with personal progression.

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. I like that. It’s similar to “I outgrew the cult.” General authorities are substitutes for parental authorities. Parental substitutes they were for me, particu...

Re: NOMference Fall 2019 Sunday Morning

Standard plan of darnation talk. Meh. +5 for Tolkien. I could dock him for failing to be the progressive voice he has sometimes been, but that would be holding him to a higher standard. Another +5 for imagery. +5 for teaching unconditional love. +5 for his approach to missionary work, despite his un...

Re: REVELATION TIME: President Nelson Announces Upcoming Important Message for Young People

The timing is what makes this suspicious. Is this some cultic obedience test to see who will get their kids excused from school for this? Is it a publicity stunt to help the COJCOLDS kids get noticed by their peers. As in , whoa that old guy must be super important to ditch school for. I predict tha...
