..but it's something the church can point to and say, "look, we do stuff!"
Which is the only reason they even did this...like so much in LDS culture it is all about the appearance over the substance.

Re: Church Statement on AP article - training of those who work with children?

In our area it is a joke of an online training (10 minutes maybe) with pathetic examples that you are "supposed" to complete before you actually work with kids...of course if you don't finish it no one really cares...but if you don't complete the training on how to look after the money as a financia...

Re: The widow's mite, or the widow's MUST

For example of how devout he is, he won't let his sons go home teaching with a companion who doesn't have a current recommend.

Re: BYU-I Censors Anatomy textbooks

I would suggest that it should just be called BY-Idaho. To suggest, in anyway, that this is a real university is both a joke and a disservice to actual universities.

Re: 17 new temples?

Temple building has 4 major drivers: 1. Proximity 2. Capacity 3. Investment 4. Perception Let's deal with each in its turn. 1. Proximity.
