Re: Outward expression

I find the promulgating the idea of an "outward sign" a disingenuous attempt to create an excuse for wearing them.

Re: What if....

What if: In April conference all references to "same sex attraction" disappear? And the word "Gay" becomes universally used by GAs? Then in a statement to "clarify" the Church's position the following is released: "Gay members are required to live the same moral standards as heterosexual members"? T...

Are You a Failed Parent?

I remember when my mother and father were struggling with the idea that I was the only active child in the family. I have 3 brothers and that meant that the activity rate of my parent’s children was 25%. 1 in 4. Meanwhile, at Fast and Testimony meetings parents were getting up talking about their ch...

Re: How to skip Priesthood mtg?

Her belief system is based on feelings right. My Pop always said, "you can't tell someone they FEEL wrong."

I would suggest you let her know you're uncomfortable at Priesthood Meeting and would like to spend the time with someone who makes you feel better...like her and the kids.

Re: Are youth really leaving?

The fact they even considered regularly interviewing 8-11yo shows something, they are scared. My teens both know tons of active lds kids that are in only to keep parents off their back.

Re: Bishops as counselors

If the church trains them then the church is responsible for what they say.

Ask the church lawyers, they know.

Re: Next "Big Thing"

As society becomes more accepting of different folks the church has to decide which of those folks it needs the most. I had a History teacher say to me once, "Women are the vessels of culture" meaning that men will bend to women's wishes. Anecdotally more men join the church for women than women joi...
