Re: I'm kinda worried about the children of fundamentalists

I worry about this also -- not only kids of TBM's, but kids of preppers, and relatives of Q-Anon followers. Q Anon cultists believe that the stay-at-home order was not issued for the purpose of isolating people from COVID-19. It was issued so that the streets would be clear when thousands of people ...

Re: Home Church and Women

Oaks’ confusing talk really exposed the fact that it is all made up crap and they have no idea why men have priesthood, but since it makes men superior....oops, since Christ ordained apostles....no, Christ called apostles, no evidence he ordained them, since they want men to have some glorious “thi...

Re: I need a bit of help!

As a suggestion, could you call or text your wife and tell her that you may need to wait until she returns so that she can help sort out the clean laundry? Get the laundry all washed and dried, then set aside the items that are causing the confusion. ( If you try to guess, it might confuse things mo...

Re: #Bringthemissionarieshome

Even if they don't show symptoms, they can transmit the virus. I think it is extremely unwise for them to be going door-to-door and shaking hands, etc. Since the church is canceling other face-to-face activities, IMO, the in-person proselytizing should also be canceled. ( In fact, I'd like to see al...

Re: Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

Now would be a good time to send around a fake letter authorizing Women to bless the sacrament in their homes Yesssss ! And include a thank you to Pres. Nelson for having the prophetic insight to foresee this change six months ago, etc. I wish there were some way to get ahold of the letterhead/font...

Re: Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

This really should bring home the ridiculousness of women having to rely on men for "priesthood authority". Why should a grown-up, responsible woman have to have a man come bless bread and water for her so she can have the sacrament? What kind of foolishness is that? The whole thing is ridiculous. ...

Re: The National Enquirer is True!

If the Enquirer cannot bring down the church with their bombastic expose of tithing as a scam, then few other media outlets can do it. Was this written by Randy Jernigan who always had a crush on Marie Osmond, except she never gave him the time of day? Every so often he writes an article implicating...

It's like I'm at the car dealership with my wife, and I know I'm not buying a car and most of the sales staff knows I'm just here with my wife.

Re: Knowing Joseph: Joseph Smith & Nauvoo Plural Marriage (SLC)

So, the most important thing to teach your child is that you love him, no matter what because he is your son and you don’t need any other reason to love him. Teach him that sure you will get angry and at times you may not like him, but you will always love him. The next most important thing to teac...

Because ultimately your free agency boils down to one choice: do what you are told or follow Satan. You are free to dig your own grave.
