Re: Pray Pay & Obey And Humor

For many Mormons, it is the Puritan influence. Those stuffy Mayflower people (not Puritans, but the same attitude) and then the even stuffier Puritans who settled Massachusetts and most of New England. I mean, can you imagine anyone who is so stuffy they have to escape England, the stuffiest nation...

Re: Is the church headed for a schism ?

While at the same time, it seems you believe it would be OK if a man pretending to be a woman would be perfectly OK to be called as one of the three representatives of an all women organization of 7 million women? This is where we truly part ways. I don't believe most transgender individuals are pr...

Re: Is the church headed for a schism ?

This is a place where mormons of every stage can express ideas about mormonism. There is nothing ridiculous about questions around mormonism. There are real problems at the border that need to have solutions. What does that have to do with this thread? That can be discussed on some other thread in ...

From 15th to 23rd

As progressive Americans force feed the country their Marxist religious ideology, America falls from 15th on the global happiness scale to 23rd for the first time ever. Progressivism is so simple to understand. Let's compare Progressivism to the strategy of the Mormon church. The Mormon church survi...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

Good lord, Dirty Bird. Half of what you say makes you sound completely full of shit, and most of the other half of what you say makes you sound completely uninformed and ignorant, but thankfully a little bit of what you say makes you sound like a decent human being with a modicum of intelligence.

Pray Pay & Obey And Humor

One of the main reasons I was never really a good decent Mormon is because I have a great sense of humor and I love dirty and raunchy jokes. Maybe Mormonism is different in other areas of the country, but where I'm from Mormons don't really have a great sense of humor. One dirty joke can clear the r...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

So, if the issue is not necessarily the guns, but mental health, why is mental health much worse in general across the USA than in the 1970s and 1980s? That's the real question! Thanks for speaking up because we shouldn't have to give away our freedoms just because mental health is worse now than i...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

The progressive stance you're taking is basically this. 1. Protect our politicians with pistols and long guns but not our children while they're in school. 2. Protect our judges with pistols and long guns but not our children while they're are in school. 3. Apparently you are OK with police and eve...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

Thanks for your thought-provoking post, alas, and also for the helpful communication tips in your other thread. Marriage is one area where the church teaches all the wrong stuff. In the 80’s and 90’s, the church’s programs for teens and young adults put an enormous focus on avoiding pre-marital sex...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

Dirty bird, read the book. It gave the statistics to say why it is BOTH guns and lack of mental health support. And it named all kinds of things that your swear word Republicans fight such as better mental health programs for the poor and in schools. If it is REALLY mental health, why are the repub...

Re: Teaching the wrong stuff

I am reading a book about mass shooters and it is heavy enough I have to take it in bits and pieces. It helps that I have a degree in psychology. It talks about school shooters, but also those who go into work places, stores, churches. It has been analyzing what it is about American society that we...

Re: Liberal/Democrat Propaganda is More Important Than Women

M E, look at it this way. When you were a True believing Mormon, didn't you feel like you found true freedom through the gospel the brethren taught you from birth? I did! I thought I was one of the luckiest people on earth because I was born into the only true and living gospel on earth. I felt fre...

That said, calling someone a shiteater is an interesting approach here. I'm just saddened by the fact that Americans are so starved for inspiring leadership that they have to cling to someone like Donny. It's ok for him to slander everyone else with false claims and childish name calling, but peopl...

But please don't smash up o...
