Re: Polynesians with native american DNA article

I haven't been online much this week, but I haven't seen this posted by the usual DezNat types who would claim victory for the BoM. Are you seeing people pass this around as proof of the BoM? It reminds me of that (National Geographic?) article about finding human remains in North America but then ...

Re: I have passed the garment hurdle

My wife has adjusted in a healthy manner and I am really enjoying not wearing 2 shirts in the hot summer weather. I also like not having white poly-cotton hanging out from shorts and necklines signaling virtue and compliance to the world.

It's a nice lifestyle improvement.

Re: What aspect of Mo’ism do you still hold dearly?

I think a lot about the circumstances of my ancestors leaving Europe for America in the 19th century and realize I wouldn't exist if it never happened. And while growing up in a fundy religion wasn't my choice I have to respect the hardy if gullible ancestors that made it possible for me to enjoy th...

Re: What’s the future of anti-Mormonism look like?

Here's an idea for an anti-Mormon protest movement. A bunch of people just start wearing temple clothes in public. I'm not recommending it, I'm just saying that it is perfectly within your constitutional rights and it would cause quite a stir if you're into that kind of shrill statement making. The...

Re: Undie Apocalypse

...as a convert I was completely blindsided by them during temple prep. But then my dad could remember his parents wearing ankle-length garments. That was when they used to kneel for the sacrament prayer and raise both hands over their heads when they prayed. What. What?? Is this sorta along the li...

Re: What’s the future of anti-Mormonism look like?

Then Oaks will become the Prophet we all thought Elder Packer would have been had he lived long enough to ascend to the throne. Oaks will be the hardliner who pushes the progressives out. The next 10 years will be fun to watch from the outside but intolerable for those on the inside trying to make ...

Re: Missionary Shirt Change?

I wore a blue shirt and no tie to our first sacrament meeting back post covid-19. Feeling pretty comfortable about that after this announcement. Masks are the new ties. [emoji1787] How was the Sacrament handled? Did all handlers wear masks and gloves? Did they pass around open trays to everyone or ...

How social justice movements are like the LDS church

Both are willing to overlook the faults of their martyrs to use them for the greater cause. Both will lay the sins of the parents on the children (earlier generations sins being laid on the children, IE you should feel guilt your parents were gay or polygamist) Both effectively take advantage of pro...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

I don't think anyone knows enough about the situation to get on a dogmatic high horse and judge others unless they know for sure they are infected and purposely running around spreading it. Dunning Kruger is in full effect. If you think you know a little about infectious disease from articles and me...

Re: Mormon things that just pop into your head

Bad church film lines have been coming to me lately:

"Mahanna you ugly!"

"Stonecutter" "Same as the next man?" "Much better Sir!"

"Papanwa!"

"You must do what truth requires!"

From that cheesy church film "the testaments" when spray tanned papanwa tells his artist son during Jacob's polynesian thug's trial for the murder of the prophet:

Re: Anti-Tithing Anecdote

Everyone must find a solution that fits their situation but one thing that must happen is less money going to a $124B real estate corporation and more going into your own bank account or mutual fund. I had to compromise with my wife who has no income and so I allow her to pay a little from my income...
