Re: The Church of Climate Change in these Latter Days

Sustainable energy is now cheaper than fossil fuels. False. Absolutely False. So, so, so, so, so, soooooo soooooo soooooo false. If and when that is true - there will be no fossil fuel production or consumption for energy. The claim that sustainable energy is now cheaper may apply to a specific app...

Re: Testimonies and Idol Worship

The idea that any given noun, verb, action, idea or some such is holy or sacred is idol worship. If a church, or book or robe, or shroud is holy, it partakes in the divine, but is not itself god(s). It is just an object. A holy object. That is the definition of an idol.

Re: Setting & maintaining a temple boundary

You have to weigh it out for yourself and your relationship. I Had been openly non-temple attender while active and holding a recommend. I told the interviewers I found it weird.

Re: How America Has Been Let Down By The Republicans

Great. So we agree. Trump did not say he would imprison any who opposed him. That never happened. Agreed? [/quote] No. It would be naive to make such a statement. Rather we have no available record that Trump has uttered those exact words in that exact order. However Trump has demonstrated disregar...

Re: Ayaan Hirsi Ali Joins Christianity

Does civilization need religion? I suspect it ultimately might, whatever my feelings about the truth claims. I don't think civilization itself needs religion. Elements with the civilizations likely do. There are certainly atheists who feel that they need a social structure to replace religion for t...

Re: How America Has Been Let Down By The Republicans

What is your source for this? Many opposed Trump when he was president? Who did he imprison? With all due respect, your claim is pure gaslighting. Biden’s DOJ and Soros’s DA’s are taking political prisoners and incarcerating enemies. Perhaps you are correct about Trump, but if you are, it can be a ...

Re: Trump & Church

And yet the investigations into solindra found no wrongdoing.

I've already answered was it a criminal trial.

Why is the distinction important here? Is it less fraud? Is it less sexual abuse?

Would you let a civilly convicted child abuser babysit your kids?

Meh. Fraud for paying back a loan? That is not the charge and you should know that. If you want to misrepresent facts that's your choice. It remains that Trump has been found guilty of fraud. You also neglected to talk about his conviction for sexual abuse. And you tried a fallacious distraction on...

Re: Martin Harris- why did Jos. Smith trust him with the 116 pages?

I don't think we have anything like the full story. It was heavily spun after the fact for face saving purposes. And probably before hand for general scam purposes. Based on no evidence, just my understanding of human nature, I suspect that: Martin Harris had his own doubts about JS the scammer, thu...

Re: "Mormon is a victory for Satan" - good idea or bad?

Word vulgarity follows.

There is a book about cursing, Holy Fucking Shit. That title explains what curse words are based around.

The Sacred

Sexual things

Various Excreta

So which one of those does the word mormon fit? I don't have a problem putting it any of the categories.
