Re: Intervention

You're name is Nebuchadnezzar too? Well I'll be damned! I knew we had this spiritual connection from the pre-existence. :lol: PS. My wife was at the Masonic lodge this morning. Wouldn't that be weird if they sat by each other? Dude, I almost blew coffee out my nose. Slavereeno, this is weird. It su...

Re: Honor Code Stories

RR and I were st Rick's at the same time and ran in some of the same sketchy crowds. I got to speak to the dean and spend some probation time there too. Stupid narks. Some kid got jealous we didnt invite him to Utah to my parents cabin. We were all dragged in and interrogated separately. Who was hav...

Re: Anyone need to talk through this stuff?

It's been awhile since we had a NOM conference call. Anyone want to call in? The hold music is pleasant.

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

Wow, lots of judgment there but if that was said all in one meeting I am impressed. You could take 10 years of WC meetings I have been in and you still would have half the awareness about these items. What RR said, but just dont go (if the family can support it) or do the blue shirt thing. I did las...

Re: BOM Play in SLC this Summer

I saw this a few years ago during a quick trip to Seattle. That also happened to be the one and only time that I've had a chance to meet up with some NOM posters in person--a few of us went out to dinner. The show is very clever but pretty vulgar in places. The music is catchy (and surprisingly cle...

Re: The 3 Main Theories

I like where you are going with this. I often wonder this about leaders. Local and global. However, none of the leaders today are claiming to receive translations for non-existent plates or to speak for God in such outlandish "and thus I the Lord say that this thing I personally require to benefit J...

Re: How the journey through Mormonism is like the Sixth Sense

Yeah I was thinking it would be a fun project to write short mock screenplays of some movies that have that 'leaving Mormonism' parallel to them. Truman Show is a great one. I haven't seen The Others but I've heard good things. I also havent see The Village in a long time but it feels like that cou...

Re: Flat Earth Documentary

Finally watched this. Wow, just wow. I suppose the advice to consider what are our own personal flat earth theories should be considered. I am sure I have some.

Maybe daniel and the lions den. Really?!!

Seriously though, Noah's arc was my first real faith crisis issue. BofA was my shelf breaker.

Re: on being outside

I am several years (I hope) away from any temple wedding but have resigned myself to the likelihood of being outside. I am sure it will be more difficult if it gets closer.

Good luck on your day of pain.

Honestly not sure if this is coincidence or the spirit. I drink lattes all the time. For some strange reason I felt like a mocha latte yesterday. Your post years ago got me on a kick, but generally I am not a chocolate guy. That said, yesterday it was a mocha latte for me. Apropos i guess, serendipi...

Re: The Corbridge Manuever--New RFM Podcast

One of my favorites from you C! Of course I have many RFM faves. My DW is now listening and she really has liked some of yours but has not finished yet and said you (er RFM) beat the dead horse too much on this one in spots. I disagree, but food for thought. I lived the maneuver stuff. You killed it...

Re: Living the Middleway again.

I'm with you. I love my wife more than I am annoyed with the LDS church. Virtually no one asks about my real beliefs at church, so why bother them about it. Good luck going forward, Mackman. Well said Corsair. That is a more concise way of saying what I have said many times. My relationships are my...

Re: Need to vent, has nothing to do with Mormonism

Sorry for this family situation. Great reminder for all of us. These complex situations can turn into long family fights.

Just an update. Things have settled down some, we've had more calm discussions and we're trying. This makes me happy. I wish you both peace through all of it.
