College bound question?

Anyone have any good recommendations for places to live for kids going to BYU or UVU?

Reading the online reviews it's nearly impossible to tell where the truth lies. Half are bad and the other half are too good to be real.

Re: "The church gets more right than it gets wrong"

Seriously though, the argument is really a brainless way of admitting that they haven't dissected their own religion enough to see it's flaws. Bennett is guilty of this. It provides good moral values; but creates a system rule for abuse. Other similar lines of thinking: My job is ok, it's probably b...

Re: "The church gets more right than it gets wrong"

What the church got right: Set up a system that defers all authority to one man called as a Prophet. Create a narrative where said Prophet speaks for and on behalf of God. Create a set of rules known as sin. Then bind people to these rules through obedience lest they be cut off from the presence of ...

Re: If the church were to admit and apologize...

None of the above. I need all tithing refunded plus compensatory damages for emotional pain and suffering. But how do you value the cost of enslavement in polygamy panties and the loss of visual intimacy with a spouse for 20+ years? 150 Million and I might consider the church in a respective way. Di...

Re: mocha latte for Neal

Fifi,

I'm away on spring break with my family. Every year I remember vividly the day you posted about your son because of the timing with spring break. I'll happily pay it forward again this year and may this tradition for Neal never die on NOM.

May you continue to find peace.

The battle is over. The church has officially lost control of its message.

Sorry to hear alas.

Perhaps the church could find a symbol to clarify the name and mission of the church.

Sex, Money,and Power on the altar for and in behalf of the name of God.

Metaphorically speaking.

Any of those three can fit into the temple dynamic back in Joseph Smith's day and certainly in the modern church.

Sex, Money, and Power influences everyone to control others.

Re: Living the Middleway again.

What's the requirements for rebaptism? How high does the approval process go? SP and Area Authority? Or FP? One reason I'll probably never resign is because if for some reason I go back then I have to jump through approval hoops. On the marriage note, would you say that the act of compliance by bapt...

Re: Mormon/LDS/ETCOJCOLDS website name changes now official

Yikes!

I feel like I'm losing another part of my mormon identity. Like when I was an AOL customer, then Netscape browser user, and a former MySpace user.

ComeuntoChristy.org is available if anyone wants to mirror and spoof the Mormons.
