Thanks for sharing this. Isn't that how Blacks got the priesthood? The powers that be were threatening BYU football?

Re: SaveBYU - was I a religious Nazi when I was there too?

The removal of wording in the Honor Code is easy to understand:

Church: "We aren't. Not even a mention of it in the Honor Code....never has been..."

Re: SaveBYU - was I a religious Nazi when I was there too?

Things to remember about SaveBYU.

Limited posts (five if you're generous). Most recent May last year.

The thing is dead. Poking it could wake it up. Let the dead sleep.

I'm impressed that SquareSpace caught this so quickly and removed it. There's an archived copy of the page somewhere but the fact the link is broken and the content gone buoys my heart.

Re: BYU announces honor code changes

The new handbook puts a great deal of weight on Bishops for "Membership Councils" and this Honor Code business seems to say "We'll take it care of it case by case" meaning that if you're careful and discreet you're going to be OK. My reasoning is that although being in a same sex marriage is verbote...

Re: Cremation v.s. Burial

I'm always struck by LDS who offer "How will God reconstruct your body if it's been destroyed? You need to be buried so God can rebuild you." Uhhhh...what if I'm eaten by a shark or atomized by a nuclear weapon? Sometimes Latter-day Saints don't get how powerless they make God through their own prej...

Re: Rumors of the Handbook Changes Generally True

There's a confusing nuance to a lot of this and it's because of people in the church who still hold to Gay stereotypes. Personally I believe that the new Handbook is clearly trying to find a way to be inclusive and play both sides of the fence. Good news is that with "Membership Councils" originatin...

Woof. Dang it Michigan is pretty narrow...Distances still seem to be an issue but, you get to believe what you want to believe.
