Re: Anti-Catholic Litertature Wanted

Catholics drink out of the same sacrament cup... gross! Yeah they wipe it, but seriously disturbing. That was enough for me to gtfo. Mormons are just as bad. When i was tbm i sat as close to the front as possible. Less chance of a mom letting their 4 year old with green boogers try and put their sac...

Re: The Letter.

WTF it really sucks you are going through this. I went through the same. What i found worked best for me was using the philosophy of stoicism. You have found what works for you and brings you happiness. People will try and take that away from you because they think their way is the only one. You can...

Re: Have you had this experience? Care to share?

I have had similar things happen. I was reading D&C 132 and had this overwhelming impression that the church is totally made up. I later confirmed it through Google searches.

In my case I let my wife run it and I sit there passively. I have a "do no harm" policy regarding indoctrination. I won't stop it because I can't, but I won't be an active participant either. This is the approach i take also. Ive tried to limit the indoctrination of my kids and it caused some serio...

Sacrament topic; Joseph Smithmas.

Ive only gone to sacrament meeting a few times this year, somehow each time the topic is about how awesome Joseph Smith is/was. It seems the church is really focusing its efforts on building credibility with joseph. One speaker said he really has a problem with Joseph's follies but goes on to to rel...

Re: Joseph Smith and L Ron Hubbard -- both malignant narcisists

Moroni told Joseph his name would be known for good and evil. L. Ron Hubbard could have said the very same thing about himself.

Re: The Rebranding of Revelation

God is offended if nick names are used for his church according to RMN, and the use had slowly crept in over the years. Dogma is what has crept into the church. So RMN, if he is right about this, just confirmed that god is a passive aggressive god, he has been pissed off at all the other prophets fo...

Re: The problem of evil and the name of the church

Honestly I think its because of the churches leadership age that you get this craziness. Think about it rusty is in his freaking 90's. Go talk to the majority of people in their 80s and 90s they just don't get it. Granted there are some who maintain their cognitive youth well into advanced age but i...
