Re: Church supports marriage equality

Here's another thing. This bill also protects interracial marriages. That was kind of a shock to me, being in an interracial marriage. It had never occurred to me that my marriage could become illegal again, like it would have been a generation ago. But I guess once you start a nation moving backwa...

Abuse is facilitated through church programs

Mossyback's post in a different thread caused another thought. The church (along with other organizations) have had issues with abuse of children in the past. The church typically falls back on a statement similar to this one made by President Nelson in conference, "Any kind of abuse of women, child...

Re: Reconsidering participation in ministering

I've been thinking about this topic since I read it this morning. I am probably one of the most cynical individuals with relation to ministering/home teaching. Usually, I am with Red Ryder that the best thing to do with it is....nothing! But on further reflection, I'm not sure that is accurate. I th...

Re: He (Jesus) who must not be named

No. I did not count closing “in the name of Jesus Christ, amen” kinds of things nor in references to the church. Only in conversational references to the Person.

He (Jesus) who must not be named

So I conducted a little experiment this conference. It is possible that I might have missed some references from time to time but I recorded each time a speaker used the following words: Jesus Christ, Jesus, Christ, Lord, Savior, and Russel M Nelson. As an added bonus I counted how many times Jesus ...

With that last RMN quote he surpasses the number of times quoted than Jesus.

Jesus has been quoted (by my count) 16 times this conference...and Rusty....17!

I wonder if RMN needs a refractory period between all of these spiritual bj’s.
Ewwwwww....he's been taking his vitamins

I don't have to continually convince myself of actual truthful things I've learned only things that I want to believe but that are constantly contradicted by actual evidence.

He thinks they asked the wrong question and he should have been asked to give a talk instead...so he'll just give the talk in his prayer instead.

Re: NOMference Sunday Morning Fall 2022 - for Mopag

The problem with that challenge is that when I actually focus on Christ, when I ignore the philosophies of men and focus on what Jesus would do and has taught us by his example and life then it actually leads me away from the institutional church.

-50 for Nelson. I won't leave because the church asks too much. I'll leave because it isn't true, doesn't tell the truth, promotes other-ing, and doesn't deliver on its promises.

If it was what it claimed, I'd happily do what it asks.
Amen and Amen!
