Re: SLC NOM lunch: Wednesday, April 10, City Creek Centre

We’re meeting and discovering some of us are related.😲 Yes! We discovered that DPRoberts is married to my cousin. I've been to his house only a couple of times and that part of my family is huuuge, so it took me a bit to work out that his face looked familiar because we might be related... To cousi...

Re: SLC NOM lunch: Wednesday, April 10, City Creek Centre

I'll be wearing a black t-shirt with "Since 1791" on the front. It's my favorite shirt to wear in England. I have a class that ends at 12:40, so that kind of puts a damper on it for me, but maybe I can swing by late and say hi. Please post specifics once you get there. We'll post as soon as we know ...

Re: Equally yoked? I don't think so.

What makes me even sadder is when I talked with my wife about this and she not only accepts it but defends it. I made a comment on that photo earlier and this was a response I got from a random believer: "As a woman I resent the way you talk down to me and others, as if we are victims of some horri...

Nelson's talk was horrible. DW didn't like it a bit.
Sounds like your wife isn't afraid to empathize with you, and has gone one step further to being aware of messaging that's harmful to you.

Now is not the time for "I told you so"

Keeping tabs on r/exmormon during the latest kerfuffle has been interesting and a little saddening. The first thing I noticed was that almost every post was a variation on the theme "I told you so" or "This isn't enough." I figured that anything like the first theme would be a terrible way to start ...

Re: Anyone need to talk through this stuff?

"Just have faith" is in constant tension with "ye shall know them by their fruits." Mormons are told to resolve the tension by choosing "just have faith" for everything unfavorable toward the church and "ye shall know them by their fruits" for everything favorable. One problem is that it's a terribl...

Re: What's all this talk about coffee

I kind of hope it doesn't happen. Not drinking coffee has been a cheap way to increase group cohesion. It's like wearing a football jersey. If it disappeared as an in-group marker, believers would feel the change and adjust for it. What would take its place? Genuine love and concern for all? Nah. It...

Re: Church to allow baptisms, blessings for children of LGBT parents, updates handbook regarding 'apostasy'

My prediction of how this will be spun by some members: The saints were not ready to live this law because of their worldliness; too many of were too sympathetic to The Gays. It will be reinstated once we have properly repented. I've seen this and I've seen them say this was an Abrahamic test. It's...

I have no statistics to back this up, but I suspect that you are more likely to die from natural causes in church (boredom if it is a Mormon church) than a shooting.
I can confirm this from personal experience.
