Re: Renlund story makes me mad

The example he gave that quoted the actual words of the Branch President is telling. Something about how the blessing could actually heal the person. I suspect the reason the "official wording" is so important is that the brethren have carefully removed any words that imply a promise of healing. Don...

Re: Husband accepted Primary calling behind my back!

The thing I am most attuned to is just how offensive it is to have other fallible human beings believe they can determine another's worthiness. That one is a hot button for me and was the basis for my last church-inspired serious disagreement with my wife. Let's see, you told primary children the tr...

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

Yes I do. I just joined the Divine Assembly, so that's a step toward taking the sacrament. Next step is figuring out how to tell DW without freaking her out. I was talking about How to Change Your Mind on Netflix with my kids on Sunday. I think I will find ways to work it into conversations more oft...

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

I knew I was asking you to describe the indescribable, but I think you did an admiral job of it. Thank you. This adds another tool to the spiritual toolkit that i will continue to use (using the word "spiritual" in a way that has nothing to do with unseen beings, in case Fluff reads this). But it al...

Re: Holotropic Breathwork

I just did your recording. This was my third time. I also tried two of the other recordings. I like yours the best. Your voice is very soothing, and the sound mixing sounds professional. I'm curious what the experience is like for you. This was as deep of a meditative state as I have experienced. Th...

I'm interested. I want to try drugs as well, but I'm afraid that would freak out Mrs. DP, and I wouldn't feel good about doing that behind her back.

Re: "Keep Sweet" or I will break you.

My wife has been watching this, but changes to something else if I happen to come in the room. I'm not sure what to make of her behavior, other than to try to stay away while she watches it.

Re: Mormon No More on Hulu

Just finished the first episode as well. This is so well done so far as I've gone. I was most touched by Matt Easton's motivation for coming out as he did, and his touching interaction with the bereaved father of another BYU student who took his own life. I wonder if JRH had any idea about that and ...

The chickensh*ts said they got revelation to change it.
And IIRC they claimed to have instigated the revelation to change it because of their great compassion. Don't be so mean you bad old HF. Çue the eye rolls and barf bags.

Re: Under the Banner of Heaven TV show

I just watched episode 3. Was the execution of the penalty a little different from what was actually done? It has been a long time, and I only went through a handful of times pre-1990 so I am not sure. I thought I remembered something a little different. I think you are right about execution of the...

Re: Can Confirm - Emphasis on Conditional Love

So I can confirm the rumours are true at the highest In any event, the brethren are going to try and make conditional love doctrine, and I'm not confident at all that the general membership will actually buy in to the concept. Sure, people like my SP, his crew, my TBM wife and narcissist mother wil...

Re: Church assets transferred to GA families

I looked at the County Assessor's interactive map which shows several parcels for the Eagle Gate, as it is a condominium. Each parcel I looked at has a land value, so that appears to contradict there being a single landowner. PROPERTY RESERVE, INC owns several of the units. Corp of the Presiding Bis...

Re: Church assets transferred to GA families

I think it unlikely they would put the property mentioned in Marjorie Hinckley's name. At least not directly. Ownership of land is a matter of public record that can be easily looked up. If they have done something like this you can can expect the truth to be buried under a pile of shell entities to...

Not sure how I would rank the two activities you mentioned. Probably go with what I once heard from a cellist. Music is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. I'll leave it at that :D
