Re: RFM Mormon Apologetic Lecture Series

Consig: “I was officially released yesterday....”

John Larsen: “Not under duress I hope?”

Ha ha ha ha ha.

John slips and says “I’ve always enjoyed your podcasts.... I mean posts.”

John Larsen has always been a Prophet!

Re: Bruce Porter, Apologist Fireside

Slavereeno, just for fun why don't you post this over at Mormon Discussions. I would be interested in what Grindael, Shulem, and a few others had to say about Brother Porter's claims. http://www.mormondiscussions.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=1 I requested an account, not sure how long that process wi...

Re: All the single mormon ladies.....

Seems like a marketing ploy to promote the dating site. Why is everything Mormon related total BS? The LDS Matchmaker, a Mormon matchmaking site, is running the search for the mystery man from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Company founder Amy Steven Seal told KSL-TV that 10 billbo...

Re: Maybe it’d be nice if everyone posted a very short intro who they are

I opened Pandora’s Box in 2004. I navigated the rabbit hole and built an impressive google search history on all things Mormon History. I have an innate ability to see and recognize patterns in data sets, organizations, and human behaviors due to my professional career training. I was a young father...

Re: Nihilism

I wonder if there's a difference in thinking about this at age 30 and age 70? I walked from the church in my 50's, still hoping (but not believing) in an after life. At 30 I would have had fear about the end, but only in the unknown of a new experience. Now it's just so final. It shouldn't matter; ...

If it’s any bit comforting, just know that many of us have been through these same thought discussions with ourselves. The path your on is familiar.

Re: Ward Council is Closed (Minded)

Do any of you have anything on this one? I'd like to have something to give spouses that show its ok to have hope, that peace can be found in mixed marriages. Here’s how I have navigated this in my journey. I point out that there’s plenty of lame examples of hope found in the scriptures. The Prodig...

Re: McDonalds, an observation

I’me going to rant here for a second or two. Not at you Melinkie but generally speaking. I just can’t stand this type of thinking that is too common in ex-mormonism. Bad diets, sedimentary lifestyles, obesity, and lack of personal hygiene are universal. Ex-Mormons love to point out the gaping hypocr...

i hate garments too!

Why don’t we start a grass roots uprising!

Ordain Women
End Masturbation Interviews

Sounds like it’s time to petition the leadership!
G’s in the T’s?

Everyone can post their garment horror stories and we can present a book to the FP!

Re: Couples Married Civilly Now Authorized for Immediate Temple Marriage

JTG, that's how I interpreted at first. But, essentially you could be sealed in the temple the day after your civil wedding even if having sexual relations with your partner kept you from having the one and only true ceremony in the temple. OK, but... How is a couple going to get an interview with ...

Re: Changes in the church

All it takes now is for a few progressive people to set the precedent. The sheep will follow. Tuesday Night Weddings will become the norm.

Please join us on ward temple night to witness the sealings of the Jones, Andersons, and Smiths.

Just like stake baptisms. :lol:

Re: Changes in the church

I hate this church because most of the good changes are coming after we've all had to deal with them to some degree for our lifetimes and the best ones will likely be after we're too old and family is set in their ways to actually enjoy the changes. I'm going to disagree here. I've been in this mes...

Re: And sometimes it comes back, in weird ways
