Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

I believe the Catholic Church is basically true. I don't KNOW it's true. I BELIEVE it's true. But my wife doesn't want me to become Catholic. It's funny, for the past 7 years I've attended the LDS church regularly without a traditional testimony, and I've thought I could stick with it for the rest ...

Re: Anti-Catholic Litertature Wanted

I want to be Catholic, but my wife wants me to stay Mormon. She wants me to read anti-Catholic literature just like I read anti-Mormon literature a long time ago. So... do you have any recommendations? Or do you have any arguments against Catholicism? Why do you want to be Catholic, and what is it ...

Re: Visiting in laws on a Europe senior mission... such a frustrating trip.

So far today we were taken to the restaurant owned by a member and her parents had the member come over and tell us her conversation story. I always forget how cringey it gets... and then when I'm around her family it just floods back. Still laughing that they'll drink tea now as they continue to a...

Happy Birthday to NOM, and many, many thanks to everyone for all the wonderful posts. Thanks to Capt. S and to everyone who work to keep this site up and running. It's been a real sanity-saver and a real day-brightener for me. Happy Birthday, and hopefully many, many more. 8-) - Wndr.

Re: Calling to Repentance

To add: Imagine all the people sitting in conference, listening to Oaks' toxic talk, thinking to themselves, "Well, we must show exact obedience, because he is speaking the word of the Lord, so it is not our place to question", etc. Hundreds of thousands of TBM's still caught up in that scam of buyi...

Re: Calling to Repentance

RMN cannot realistically threaten those who have left the church, but he can threaten the faithful with "sad heaven" if they don't get their children in line. Prophets can only exert power over those who give it to them. There's probably lots of research on this topic. It makes me sad that I never ...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

"thanks, but I'm going to ignore what you just said. You have always told us not to expect you to be perfect, you have made lots of mistakes in the past, so I'm going to follow your advice about not expecting perfection and just assume that you are wrong in this case too." I am SO tired of Oaks' en...

Re: Goodbye Garments

bought 5 more non-religious undershirts so now I have enough to never run out and have to revert to wearing the garments. This goes along with my many pairs of heathen underwear. I was surprised by the mixed feelings I got as I took the remaining garments out of my drawer and stuck them in the box ...

Re: Resume fun

The only positive aspect I can think of, is that he is trying to show that he has done volunteer work that entails some kind of responsibility. Sometimes, job candidates list volunteer work as a way of showing that they have experience in managing or supervising other people. The negative aspect is ...

Re: Those Christian billboards

'm sure the intent is to scare the bejeezus out of you at the thought of meeting a vindictive God so you'll call the number, get fixed up, and open your wallet. My reaction to this is to say, "I certainly hope so, because he's got a LOT of explaining to do." This morning during my meditation I had ...

Re: MLK Jr.

The line “the church doesn’t work for me” is diplomatic and non-confrontational. Good idea. I like it because it allows us to speak our truth without having to be hostile or defensive. —Wndr

Re: Joys of LDS Afterlife

Also, in my mind, I believe that the reason Heavenly Mother is silent, is NOT because Heavenly Father is so-called "protecting" her. It's because he's got her tied up and gagged in a basement somewhere. Otherwise, she would have never, never, consented to the construction of the afterlife as it curr...

Re: Joys of LDS Afterlife

Not all can be bowls of cherries and rectangles of baklava. However, are we sure that was not just the lust-filled wishes of Joseph Smith and other hankering polygamists rather than an accurate description of the LDS afterlife? Has that idea been discussed since the time of Brigham Young? I would t...

Re: Joys of LDS Afterlife

think many of the ideas of an LDS afterlife sound wonderful. You get to eventually be a god and have your own planet. You will be floating around with your loved ones (God will sort out all the visitations.... Unfortunately, this only applies to men who will get their own planet. Women will not hav...
