Nicely done. I should have had more discussion before trying to ditch mine.

After wearing garments for 26 years and discovering the truth, I could wear a dirty dish towel down there and it would feel 'effing amazing!

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

With my DW, being vulnerable and talking about my insecurities, pain and anxiety about the church stuff was far more effective than actually talking about the church stuff. I can see how this might back-fire though, if this is perceived as "loosing the spirit" then the response may cement into one o...

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

With women this fear is a little worse because not only do they lose the man they love, they get “assigned” to somebody else. This fear of finding themselves the 33rd wife of John Doe who is a total stranger to them is horrifying. Damn. As a male in the church, I never thought about how upsetting t...

Re: An integrity crisis?

This is a tough issue. One of the nice things about being in the position we are here is that we recognize that there is no one-shoe-fits-all answer anymore. What may work for one family does not work for another. I was put in a pickle about a year ago. Some of my family knew I was out and some did ...

Re: Grant Palmer's non-believing GA revealed

I am not sure what to think here. I don't always agree with JD, or how he approaches things, but his stuff has been helpful to me along the way. I can see how this gives his critics ammunition. Certainly as a therapist this is not cool. It also discourages future high level leaders from talking to a...

Re: Changes

Some philosopher that I truly do not remember said that the problem with metaphysics is that there is no laboratory for testing those statements. It's like when a family friend warned me about my Lesbian daughter marrying her girlfriend. "What are the consequences? She can still come to my house an...

Re: Changes

Oh and I guess there is a special place in Hell for me because I have "corrupted" my family. There's also a special place in Heaven for helping your family come to a better understanding of reality. The only people condemning you to Hell are those who are adamantly certain of their conclusions. Yes...

Wow. Seems things are changing fast around your family. Hope the pandemic break from church will push everyone to find new things to do on sundays. Wow...when things move fast... they move fast. Hopefully everyone is doing OK through the transition - I know from reading and listening to others that...

Re: Changes

UPDATE:

DS 1,2 and DIL (all RMs) are mentally out now, after reading the CES Letter. DS 3 is mentally out and currently not planning on a mission. DD 1&2 don't know what to think but want to stay involved because all their friends are Mormon. DW is most likely mentally out as well.

Re: Changes

Letter to my wife was written by a guy on Reddit who came up with a list of reasons to explain to his wife why his faith was challenged and eventually lost. May have felt the CES letter tone was too harsh and this letter is a softer tone directed to his wife. If I recall his user name was JeffreyRr...

To take a break from conspiracy, I'd recommend https://ourworldindata.org/ website. Just look at numbers of things and decide if the doomsayers are right.

Slavereeno, I am happy for you but I can tell also from your recent posts it’s not all easy. My husband is still putting his hands over his ears and shouting “la la la.” So we basically almost never discuss issues. How was it that your wife read that letter? I have never heard of it, but I’m curiou...

Re: Bruce Porter Stuff Again

Obviously, Ronan the Accuser was a servant and priest of the most high God. His culture faithfully (as faithfully as possible given that they are also fallible mortals) preserved the ordinances of exaltation. This is a testament to the truth of the gospel as it has been given to us on this planet. ...
