Re: Is NOM going the direction of some other online groups?

Old, white guys are the spawn of Satan and if you don't bow down at the LGBTQ alter then you are an ignorant piece of crap not even worthy of the wasted air you breathe. What does this mean, and who here has ever attacked white people? I'm not seeing what you're seeing here. Could you give an examp...

Re: Is NOM going the direction of some other online groups?

Right now, I think a lot is seasonal. It's summer and people are out doing stuff. Yard work, projects, vacations, etc. We are not inside as much where hopping on NOM is as good a way to spend time. Also, thinks have been pretty quiet on the LDS front lately. Nothing more than the normal level of BS...

Re: The Letter.

I'm sorry that all this guilt-tripping and shaming happened to you. If your parents are in their mid-eighties, then you are probably in your forties or fifties and well past the time that you should be treated as a guilty child. It may be time to reinforce the boundaries and let them know that this ...

Re: Heal Me

I broke my arm over the weekend in a horse riding accident. I would be game to have some NOM ex-mos give me a blessing (with anointing) to see if the ex-mo healing spirit is any more powerful than the Mormon spirit of healing. :( Sorry that happened to you ! I broke my ankle in a horse riding accid...

Re: The awkward masturbation talk

Me: I think it’s normal and natural to masturbate. You shouldn’t feel guilty about it. Her: uh, (awkward postering) I don’t know. Isn’t it a sin? The fact that the church is involved with this topic and insists on shaming its members or prying into their personal lives is one of the reasons why chu...

Re: Life gets better

So glad to read this good news. Positive experiences like yours help to support others who are going through tough times and hoping for the light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, the church is still indoctrinating 4 year olds by threatening them with never seeing their parents again. But ove...

Re: Morrissey and the Church

As a teen, I was a big fan of the Osmond family singers, who are about my age. I always thought Donny Osmond was the coolest, and that he was very "woke" and hip. ( LOL). As an adult, I even went to see Donny and Marie in Las Vegas, and they put on an excellent rock 'n roll revival show, full of mid...

Re: Monumental stupidity to faith promoting story

JTG, you're an excellent writer, and this is certainly a 21 century version of a handcart story. It's dangerous to get lost in the mountains, especially when the landscape is still covered with snow, with a faulty vehicle, with travelers have taken no emergency precautions. That's a recipe for disas...

Re: Exmo-Reddit, sometimes I just can’t handle it

But I am really tired of the the pictures of some booze bottle, the nasty tattoos, the weed, the same stupid meme repeated 4 times, and the McKenna Denson and NNN drama. reddit /r/exmormon is like binge watching a really trashy comedy-drama on Netflix. It still might be entertaining, but you know i...

Re: New Wendy Nelson video is giving me a serious case of the heebie jeebies

Sister Wendy, like all women of the church, is really nothing. But she fancies herself the co-prophet. There's no such thing ...

For some reason, I missed seeing these pics 2 years ago, so I'm glad that you brought up this thread from 2017 !

Do you think it came off as accusing?
Nope ! Not at all. You actually gave them the benefit of the doubt far more than I would have. Your essay was very fair and objective, IMO. :)
