Re: Debate night: RFM vs Midnight Mormoms

Would Midnight Mormons be an answer to the question, "Who's on the Lord's Side Who?" From what I have seen. their answer to anyone not wearing their garments on the outside would always be, "well not you, that's for sure!" Followed by the roasting of red herrings over a burning strawman in the form...

Re: Now that we know Mormonism is a cult what do we do?

I know I have talked about this before (because I'm a bit of a revolving door!), but I love Alan Watt's revolving door analogy, and I think it applies to this question. Watts compares churches to doors. The purpose of a door is to help you get from one place to the other. The problem with churches i...

An Abrahamic test

The church loves the idea of the Abrahamic test. Their version is that you be willing sacrifice anything and everything FOR the church in order to strengthen your faith in the church. How about this for an Abrahamic test: Place all of your most beloved beliefs on the altar. Surrender your trust in a...

Re: Not historical?

It's weasel words. Church: The Book of Mormon is true and historical. Human: Then why isn't there any evidence to support it? And so much that refutes it? Church: It's generally, overall true and historical but it's not a freakin' textbook, so don't think you can pin it down to specific, textbook st...

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 ...

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.

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.

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...
