Re: Why belief in Satan is comforting

here comes my law enforcement story... I have actually been in uniform and had parents point me out to their young child and say "If you don't behave, that officer is going to arrest you and take you to jail!" I have yet to come up with a good response that wont get me written up with a citizen's co...

Re: The core of my mormon trauma

Out here in God's country you learn real quick not to touch a metal fence. The livestock learn the hard way and pull away in fear if you try to feed them through a fence they know has been electrified. You tested the fence- just to prove its no big deal. But then you found out it wasn't electrified ...

Re: It's not even wrong

When we are reading or discussing things that seem far fetched or against my line of thinking I always ask something related to "I wonder if..." or "I wonder why..." It kinda keeps my opinion out and gets others to think of both sides of a coin. My feeble attempts at the socratic method. It works be...

Re: Bednar

If there was one COBler I could meet on the street it would be Bendnar. I have this social fantasy where I meet him in a public place and have the opportunity to challenge him to strike me dumb, def, blind or dead. I'd call him out on being a dishonest false prophet who has zero magic powers, yet e...

Re: Burial in temple clothes

So... since I dont have the golden ticket- can I at least stay in the room? Thoughts? I'd doubt that a "current" Golden Ticket is a requirement to dress a body, I'd guess it is a "right" as long as a person has been endowed just like how you don't have to have a current ticket to buy or wear Polyga...

Re: Burial in temple clothes

I hate to thread jack- but it is sequitur... My dyed in the wool mother just let me know my sisters will be the only ones who can dress her at her funeral. (it is coming soon and luckily enough we can make the plans with her) I am not sure if I feel some kind of way about this. It doesn't hurt my fe...

Re: Necromancing for the Lord

I have a relative who is otherwise normal. However, anytime we have a family situation of attending the temple together she goes into this frenzy listing all of the dead relatives that were there in the room with us. My family eats this up by the shovel full. They love to hear what she has to say an...

Re: Scientology on Mormon Stories

About 10 years ago a co-worker who knew nothing of the church asked me to explain what we believe. I had served a mission and had no trouble trying to convert others- but that was the first time I felt like I was completely insane while describing the church's history. Trying to explain to an intell...

I can see it being sort of like Paregoric, as well as Soma (the Brave New World variety, not the muscle relaxant). OMG! Thread jack! I loved paregoric! Boy that brings me back to my childhood- long before the days of safety helmets and seatbelts. Paregoric didn't work on me- I had a stomach of stee...

Re: RSP for a day?

My mom taught RS in the 70's that were all about art and culture and literature- they were amazing.

I would bring all of that back and throw out anything that references a prophet.

Re: Are You a Failed Parent?

It took a while but my mother has come around. My parents were married over 50 years before my dad passed. But between 5 children: 2 missions, 6 temple marriages, and 4 divorces. One has died but was active at the time of death, and only 2 of the remaining 4 are active. One of the active children is...

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

Another failure to know their audience. If the church wants to keep the younger crowd they need to do better than hero worship of a dead prophet. That will only endear the older crowd. If it doesn't appeal to the younger generation, they will tune out quick.

I just finished El Camino. I liked the ending and I appreciate the sacrifice his friends made for him in the beginning to get away. In my line of work I have seen that there really is a code among thieves. There was a scene near the end with the strippers/cocaine when they were referencing Brigham ...

El Camino I binge watched breaking bad a few years ago and loved it. I also liked Better call Saul which was a prequel to Breaking Bad. I always wanted them to make at least a mini series for what happened to Jessie Pinkman after Breaking Bad. El Camino is a Jessie Pinkman movie that takes place RI...

Good thing a triple combinations weighs a ton. Right? Then it states that we should rely on the Holy Spiri...
