Re: Tales from the Heretic in HC

I said that's fine, you know your ward, but just so you know, that's not what Elder Chrisofferson was saying. He kind of raised a Spockean eyebrow at that (like most Mormons, I'm sure he didn't really read/pay attention to conference talks), and it didn't help matters that the wife of another bisho...

Re: Kosh is back

I was an active participant on the NOM message boards many years ago going by the name Kosh (back in the late 1990s when Babylon5 was first airing through around 2010?), so I have joined this new platform under the same name. I left the church as I had a major faith crisis over doctrine and history...

Re: My Mushroom Journey

Wow, Stealth. I thank you for the encouragement, as I have yet to take the plant medicine sacrament but now want to more than ever. I like how you got your wife to be your sitter. Mine is more hardcore TBM but I think I will ask her to be my sitter anyway as there is no one I would rather share the ...

Re: TBMs who turn to" Real Christianity"

To the OP, the only example on NOM I can think of is Palerider who I think believes in a biblical Christianity. You could search his posts if you want an example of that. I have no idea if he is a stalwart in a local church or if he just practices his faith in his own way. Now to Fluff's threadjack....

Dating yourself and those who recognize the reference. Conference could use a technological equivalent of the going.

Not for long. Weather is gorgeous and I have some outdoor chores to catch up on. But thanks for the recognition.

Re: Keeping up with Trump

It will certainly be a test of our republic. Literacy regarding basic civics in our country is abysmal, so it is not too hard to convince certain people to turn to violence. However, I think I would rather see Trump face charges that are appropriate and provable than have justice denied out of fear....

Re: Mushrooms and Mysteries

So maybe I would get more out of the solstice celebration. Tomorrow's weather is supposed to be beautiful so the church of the big blue dome might be better. I don't have much use for new age woo woo.

Re: Resignation Poll

It isn’t my mama that I don’t want to make cry, but my spouse. Edited to add that I marked that I have no plans to resign, because even if my sweetheart goes first, he asked me not to because that would wipe out our sealing. I promised him that I wouldn’t and I won’t. That's where I'm at. I won't d...

Re: Elder Kevin Pearson

This guy has been on my "tool" radar for well over a decade now. He was one of two visiting Seventies at our Stake Conference over ten years ago when my son was still planning on a mission. Elder Tool told a story from the pulpit about how at a mission meeting of some kind he asked a young elder to ...

Re: Adult Saturday Night Stake Conference "date"

The two times I've been to the Saturday evening SC sessions were the two most awful church meetings I ever attended. It seems like only the most dedicated attend that session and the visiting GA knows that and plays to that crowd. The last time I attended one of these, and I do mean last time, one w...

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 a...

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...
