Re: Temple Clothes

Anybody remember this bull$hit film on the Restoration of the Priesthood from the 80s? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4B_BTjpG8o&t=983s It lays out the COBs correlated narrative as to how the restoration went down in a nice orderly fashion: 1.

Re: Resignation Submitted!

Congratulations ! Today is the first day of the rest of your life. :) Congratulations to your wife and daughter also.

Red Ryder - ban daily wear and push garments to temple only (if needed at all) - exed?

I think that's going to be my calling in life! The Lord has visited my bed and impressed upon my mind this revelation.

Re: Service missions now an option whilst living at home

Re: Shoot the messenger

I was thinking about this last night as well. Chopping off these heads may offer some benefit to TBMs, giving them false confidence in the COBs authority. On the other side it acts as a catalyst for a bunch of NOMs to go ahead and resign. Look for the uptick spikes on https://quitmormon.com/. Making...

You know, at lunch yesterday I thought I saw a dark presence hanging over you. Now I understand.
I think that was because I had the Jalapeno Cream Ale instead of the Margarita of the day. :D

Congrats! It took 7 business days for mine to be processed. You may be a bit longer with the Thanksgiving holiday next week, but you defiantly should have it finalized by the end of the month.
Wow! That's good to hear. I expected about a month.

Congrats! Thank you Lsunset! Congrats -- I hope to be joining you at some point in the future. And I hope you hang around from time to time - this group seems much easier to hang around in after leaving than Reddit or even some other boards. So glad to see QuitMormon put to use as well, and I'm sur...

Congrats!

Can you write a manual on "how to get your wife out?"

There's a few of us here who could really use it!
Thanks Red! I've offered a few suggestions based on my experience, but when it comes down to it I'm just a lucky man I guess.

Resignation Submitted!

DW finally had enough. The trigger was finding out her nephew, who just left on his mission a few weeks ago, is now returning to deal with some unresolved issues and will have to wait 6 months. The boy's older brother had to come home early from his mission a few years ago and was publicly shamed by...
