Re: Shift in direction of church giveaways

Bible media referrals were quite popular in the southern US on my mission in the 90s. We gave out a lot of generic KJV bibles with the red highlighted "jesus quotes".

Bait and switch to first discussion.

Re: Silver fox is coming!

I have this fantasy that for stake visits my house gets chosen and he shows up so I can grill him over the fire with questions and ask him to heal my paralyzed neighbor. I'm guessing apostles don't stoop that low though.

First time saying no is the hardest, after which they eventually stop asking.

Re: Emma - Victim or Co-Conspirator?

This is similar to the question of whether the GA's are in the know or acting on true belief. Victims or conspirators? Lots of speculation. Perhaps Emma believed Joe's hype at least initially and became trapped in the web.

Re: Silver fox is coming!

Incidentally if he is also coming to your stake next week we should try and meet each other. Pretty sure I'm the only NOM here though.

Silver fox is coming!

Looks like the Silver fox is joining us for stake conference next weekend. Guess I will have to try and attend that one to see what all the excitement is about listening to a former airline pilot and corporate executive board member who still can't heal people.

Re: Green tea is officially bad for you, against WoW

Here is where the coffee and tea interpretation likely comes from or was "stolen" from: Although the revelations left many of the issues raised by Samuel Underhill and his Kendal Community (see chaps. 5, 7) unresolved, the growing Mormonite congregation continued to discuss these issues among themse...

Re: New lawsuit filed against church for deceptive foundational claims

This same topic came up for discussion on the "Mormon dialogue" website. The first thing that stood out to me like a huge sore thumb was how many of the apologists over there turned out to be lawyers!!! They were all saying that in their legal opinion the suit doesn't stand a chance. I wondered if ...

Re: New lawsuit filed against church for deceptive foundational claims

I think this is where the essays' real purpose will come into play. An attempt to reduce damages in lawsuits like these.

Re: KSL websites go down: Satan at work

I think the irony lies in the fact that KSL employees like Deenie Wimmer and Ashley Kewish and the other reporters have to work on Sundays. God is pissed they don't shut down the station on the sabbath. Nah, they don't pay them for Sundays, so it is not work. Do they really all work pro-bono on Sun...

That was painful to watch. Doxxing isn't a very classy move on Quackoo's part.
