Re: Happy God

I'm not ready to invite a god type entity back into my life, still reeling from the life long deception of the LDS matrix I was plugged into and the aftermath of seeing the corrupt pattern of most religion. I have no desire to envision a god like entity that's anything related to life on this planet...

Re: Flat Earth Documentary

Couldn't this issue be solved by permitting one of the most trusted advocates to go up in a spacecraft or the ISS and do a space walk? He/she could come back and testify that they had seen the spherical earth with more than just his "spiritual eyes"... 8-) I bet it would take the community about 5 ...

Re: Your Random LDS Questions

Here's a legit question I asked in the RMN meets the Pope thread: What happens if all 15 top COBlers parish in an unfortunate plane crash or some other "God needed them more than us." end of mortality demise? If all the beloved non-profits, seers and key holding revelators are no longer living, does...

Re: Soundtrack of the NOM

Winter is back in Utah today. It's funny how many folks freak out and get bitchy about snow this time of year. It's still winter people, get over it! I for one am not ready to mow the lawn and swat mosquitoes. As long as the white walkers are not marching in, I'm happy with winter. Reminded me of th...

Re: If the church were to admit and apologize...

Sorry I can't participate. My beliefs were crushed a couple of years ago, they will never be restored. I think TSCC has already admitted guilt in many ways, but they actually make it worse with appologetics and gas lighting. If they came all the way clean they lose all their truth claims and magical...

Somewhat related question: What would happen with succession if all of the 15 died in a plane crash? Does somebody in the 70 hold all the keys to the magic kingdom?

Re: Visiting New Orleans

As a TBM I attended a work conference there about 15 years ago during Mardi Gras. It was disturbing to see what drunk people do out in public! The flashing of breasts didn't bother me but when I saw a girl giving oral sex to a guy out in the street... I think that would be disturbing even as a NOM o...

Re: John Taylor's (alleged) 1886 revelation on polygamy/everlasting covenant?

Reminds me of the Woodruff letter in the series Big Love that the polygamist were after because it would vindicate their sticking to the everlasting covenant. If such a letter did exists, it would be no surprise it's locked in the vault with many other things at the COB. At face value you have to sc...

Re: Blew up with DW "No more Tithing!"

But what about all of the blessings you'll be missing out on? I know Hagoth wrote that tongue in cheek, but I can testify that when I stopped paying tithing my financial situation improved and the blessings kept rolling in...er rather, life just went on and nothing changed. In fact, my former bisho...

Re: Should I Do This Interview?

This is a difficult one! I'm in no position of any authority to offer advice. I have a couple of gay kids, but they were able to escape TSCC before it had significant impact on their adult lives. All I can say is that I'd support you any way I could if you feel this interview can bring to light the ...

Here's a question that has been bouncing around in my head, that I think is related to this thread: What has the temple done, or what does it actually do that contributes to the betterment of human society in general?

Re: Pope and RMN to meet today

I have a feeling it's a much bigger deal for Pres. Nelson than for the pope. Do you think RMN will refer to him as Your Holiness or Mr. The Beast? Do you think he'll be able to resist saying something like, "You know, I have more priesthood power in my little finger than you have in your entire chu...

What would happen if 15 COBlers died in a plane crash heading over there? Does the top of the 70 instantly get promoted? Is it the presiding bish? Wouldn't that be something? There's that promise that the keys will not be taken from the Earth until the sons of Aaron kill a goat, so what if it did ha...

Re: When my marriage became mixed-Faith, and Stronger

Love over religion, sharing true feeling of the struggle, empathizing with each side instead of judging, these are the keys to how I navigated my faith crisis with my DW and her eventually joining me. Not all relationships have that ability, but I hope those of you with a spouse on the other side of...

It's still a bit of a mind blow to me, my first trip to the temple for my endowments. I had never been that shaken up about something before in my life. It should have been a grand and faith promoting experience; instead it was the complete opposite. It was unsettling, stressful, disturbing, scary, ...

Re: Bill Reel v. Apologist Jim Bennett

Made it through part 4. Jim keeps going on about how Joseph was under so much pressure to “restore” polygamy without clear instruction. But it had to be done right then. Compare this with the Word of Wisdom. Apologists say the reason early prophets didn’t live it was that God was patient with them ...

For a second when I saw the change announcement I was suspicious of the COB troll here on NOM because I had just posted a couple of days ago that Satan was still winning with TSCC still paying tithing money for mormon.org ads on YouTube.

Watching season 7 again to get ready for the new season. Man there's some nice T and A in that series! First season was like Game of Porn. But I digress, that's not the only reason DW and enjoyed it. She likes the women that kick ass and I just think it's great entertainment.
