Re: LDS Church proposes new community near future Tooele Valley Temple

Yes, Erda is now another suberb of SLC. I have a coworker who has commuted from Erda to SLC proper for years. He enjoys or maybe i should say enjoyed the semi rural character of the place. Another coworker also commutes from out that way. Not uncommon any more.

Re: The tone-deafness is staggering

May personal disaffection did not follow the usual route of discovering disturbing things about church history. It really started from a recognition that church leaders are nothing special and that the Living Prophet was indistinguishable from any aged chief administrator of any large earthly organi...

He also talked about the church filling North and South America. Didn't get Cook's memo, apparently.

Re: Saturday Morning NOMference Thread!!!!

I'm going to give the session a +20 for the closing hymn. It also should earn some Jesus points since it is the most Christ centered hymn in the COJCOLDS catalog. That hymn is not in the current hymnbook, and I suspect that is because the Bruce R. McHardA faction didn't like a hymn about grace and u...

Re: Will it be a softer, kinder general conference?

I predict a talk that compares the corona virus to criticism of the Church, and tells members to keep their distance. :roll: Guaranteed laugh line. My guess is Holland uses it. However, I forgot there won't be an audience. Maybe a laugh track will be used after all? I think the analogy is a given a...

Re: Latest Lawsuit

Even if there is actually a legal standing where LD$-Inc. could actually lose, I believe the tactic of K|McC a lot of the time is to simply drag things out until the plaintiffs run out of money. Who was the lawyer on MormonStories who has done sexual abuse litigation against the church and says the...

Re: More active = greater fear of transparency

Interesting. I have heard it said that transparency isn't about building trust, but about managing distrust. This seems to fit. The more blind trust they put in the organization, the less they care about transparency.

For the sake of the many good members I know I wish that trust was warranted.

Re: Multi-Cultural "Unique" Choir

They are not asking for nonmembers if you read carefully the article and the application. Which of course makes the multicultural thing more challenging. They'll need all 5 black singers to apply :lol:

Do you think they'll ask Gladys Knight to front the choir?
