Re: Debate night: RFM vs Midnight Mormoms

Will there also be a live audience? It would be fun to attend.

Re: Debate night: RFM vs Midnight Mormoms

There is no question that RFM would pulverize them in a real, well managed debate where the opposite team is actually responding to what is being said, but from what I have heard from these guys it's pretty hard to to imagine them actually participating in a thoughtful, sincere, logical debate that ...

This should be fascinating! I suppose a URL will be made available for watching the stream?

Oh, and playing dress-up during that power-point presentation isn't culty at all ! :shock: Not since they gave you permission to keep the robe on the same shoulder for the whole session.

You know you're in a cult when...

(Just acting on Red Ryder's musings in another thread)

...your mother cries every day, and your neighbors are scowling at you, because your underwear doesn't have secret masonic markings.

...You are asked if you have enough faith to NOT be healed by a guy who claims to be an apostle of Jesus Christ.

Here's a RadioWest episode where Will talks about both points, starting around minute 32:00.

Re: John Larsen and the handcart horror story

There were a couple of points that I learned about from Will Bagley that Larsen didn't discuss that I think are very important. Which Will Bagley source did these come from? It's been a while since I read Blood of the Prophets. It was an article he sent me that was being prepped for publication, bu...

The church would prefer the birthing of children directly from your head or thigh, like Zeus did, over Hephaestus' thigh hump. But both probably require confession to your bishop.

Re: Lamanites called to Enoch Space City?

There is a very interesting alternative chronology of history that I glanced over which compares the historical recordings of the solstices instead of the ancient writings passed down from the nobles and monasteries of the "dark ages" in Europe. This mathematical reorganization of the past reveals ...

Re: Soaking and Jump Humping in the news

The Alpha House series on Prime had a Mormon girl who wouldn't have sex with her boyfriend, but soaking was ok, so they showed them soaking and soaking and soaking in all kinds of places and positions. Sex seems to be the recurring major theme of Mormonism, whether you're in it, out of it, or studyi...

Re: Mormon Stories about Chad Daybell

First takeaway: Mormonism sets the stage for these kinds of tragedies by telling us that continuing revelation means there is still important information coming. It puts that in the context of last days where we are told that those who are not prepared will suffer - soon. But then it leaves us hangi...

John Larsen and the handcart horror story

I thought John Larsen did a great job of telling the horror story of the handcart pioneers. I especially appreciated his observations about how you can hide a huge mistake by celebrating it as a success and turning it into an emotional youth indoctrination tool. There were a couple of points that I ...

Re: Which doubts to doubt?

Hiding In Plain Sight (remember him?) used to talk about two Jehovah's Witness families he taught on his mission (forgive me if I'm mascaraing this story HiPS). One family converted to Mormonism and the other didn't. At the LDS church on Sunday the family that converted were constantly held up as ri...

Re: Which doubts to doubt?

We should doubt the thoughts that interfere with following the true order of priesthood authority and doctrines of the church. 1: The current living prophet 2. The first presidency 3. The quorum of the twelve apostles 4. Correlated doctrine 5. Any policy or practice determined to be relevant by the...

Which doubts to doubt?

The more I think about it the concept of "doubt your doubts" the more I realize how nonsensical it is. Maybe someone can help me with understanding what the appropriate TBM take on this is be and how you can know exactly what lines you shouldn't color outside of. My immediate response is to ask, "wh...
