Re: Utah researcher: theory of religious influences in Utah LGBT suicides may be overblown

DD came home from school early, mostly for monthly girl reasons but also because she was upset about the rumors spread by this snotty little beauch. Our DD has had depression and issues with suicide in the past and continues to struggle socially at the high school. DW and I discussed sending the pa...

The guy probably lives off of kale smoothies and no sugar, still snow skis and still has a full time job that is very taxing (tons of travel). He is also crazy intelligent. He may live to be 120 years old. If this barber can do it, why not the Lord's Anointed? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201901...

Re: Having an 8yo baptism, or not.

Just tell the bishop you're having a same-sex marriage on Saturday. That will end the child baptism harassment... My friend brought up a point, he is in a mixed faith marriage and having to figure out baptisms. He compared having a baptism at 8 in a mixed faith marriage, in the same light as the ba...

Re: Missionary name badges

Anyone remember the old days of Stake Missionaries? They would wear their badges to all meetings, I even had a neighbor who wore his all over town as well. I remember walking in on a Stake Missionary meeting as a kid, and looking around at the weirdness of the badges and the meeting. Slowly backing ...

Re: The long rumored temple changes are happening now?

Re: Areas where science has forced the church to change their story/approach/whatever?

Pretty sure President Nelson came out against evolution when he was still an apostle. Guess he was the ideal person to walk back the possibility of evolution given his medical background. He phrased his reservation against evolution without saying "thus saith the Lord" allowing the BYU biology depa...

Re: Alcohol Content of Beer in Utah vs Walmart

I know someone on the DABC commission. They have been aware of this for while, they have a plan in place to recommend changes to the legislature. I doubt they do anything unless their hand is really forced.

Re: BSA considering bankruptcy

I am the scout advancement chair in my ward. That position will obviously disappear next December, but I have done this job for several years and plan to support the young men for as long as scouting remains supported nominally in the LDS church. And I'm disappointed in the decline in the BSA. I'm ...

Re: Temples and land speculation

The location of the Tucson temple pretty much goes against the normal land speculation of other temple locations. The land was already zoned for a commercial or religious purpose and the surrounding residential properties are 1+ acres and are pretty much already built up. There might be apartment p...

I would think the Islanders would be laid back. Probably don't care what SLC thinks, they will do it their way. Especially if they are the we are our own people.

The trailer makes it look like a low budget rated R action movie. The kind you see on Netflix. I guess we will see if it gets off the ground. The way my friend is posting about it, you would think he is mortgaging his house for it

Reign of Judges movie

Does anyone know what is going on with the Reign of Judges: title of liberty.

Is the movie already made? Are they still crowdsourcing money?

My friend has been posting about it all this week

Looks like Braveheart, with white dudes fighting big polynesian guys with Meso American backdrop.

Re: BSA considering bankruptcy

So is the church just responding to the writing on the wall, or are they trying to insulate themselves from liability. That begs the question, if a lot of BSA's financial trouble is due to lawsuit payouts, could the BSA go after LDS Inc. for reimbursing settlements due to leaders that the church pu...
