Re: Life gets better

TLDR;
Life gets 10% better when you leave the church and 990% better when your spouse takes the church panties off!

Did I get that correct? :lol:

“God given” talents?

What do you think about the idea of God given talents? Is this just a quick and easy way for human’s to label their phenomenal ability to do something very well with little effort? Or did God truly bless some while leaving others to struggle? Or is this just another nurture vs. nature conversation? ...

Putting your kids through hell and then using their hell to build up your faith in the institution that you are putting your kids through hell for is messed up.
It’s Heavenly Father’s way of doing things.

Re: Still no thread on President Oak’s anti-LGBT bigotry?

Excellent post by Nibbler on the other thread applies here: I think the rank and file members do cause change, but only indirectly. For instance, I don't think we'd see all the changes in the temple since 1989 if not for what was going on among the rank and file. The average member can cause leaders...

Re: Still no thread on President Oak’s anti-LGBT bigotry?

I say pushback against President Oaks and his ilk is more important than ever. I see your point and your examples are solid. I was thinking from a non-Mormon perspective only in as much as we pay attention to the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Scientologist, Amish, Catholics, etc. Not my tribe, not my vibe! ...

Re: Exmo-Reddit, sometimes I just can’t handle it

I still go there. There are times when I need the angst because it feels good. That is something I need to get past. I still feel trapped and forced into my current level of Mormonism. I still have family that treats me like I have an infectious disease. I still have to deal with people that believ...

Re: Still no thread on President Oak’s anti-LGBT bigotry?

TSCC rides the "moral majority" conservative Christian right wave by keeping it's non-profit status while it continues to build it's multi-billion dollar corporation off the backs of sincere believing members. That Mr. Oaks, is the most dishonest of dishonesty and you are one of the main heads of i...

Doesn’t anyone ever get tired of doing this? I guess when you’re paid to be a shill for the church then it’s easier to do.

Re: The Direct Approach, to the Lord - KJV & Prayer

Please share your intervention experience. It sounds fascinating. Prayer for me was a way to dump all my thoughts out on whatever issue was on my mind which always seems like confirmation that I was making right decisions. I’ve come to think of it now as useless and talking to myself but I’m always ...

Re: New Wendy Nelson video is giving me a serious case of the heebie jeebiesn

I would be interested in how you rate Sam Young? Is he the same as Wendy or Kate? Or is he a very different category because he is male? Or maybe because you understand his soap box and don’t understand Kate Kelly’s? Because I would put Kate in a very different category than Wendy who married power...

Re: My Journey out from the flock, Getting a Coffee Maker

I stopped drinking soda about 6 months ago which eliminated 95% of my caffeine intake.

I replaced with the free coffee from work but got tired of it. Now I do the occasional DD iced Carmel machiatto.

Drinking more water and paying attention to hydration has made me feel much better.

Re: New Wendy Nelson video is giving me a serious case of the heebie jeebies

She isn't using her position to make life any better for other women in the Church. She is making it worse with her pharisaical brand of rigidly conformist Mormonism. She is an ironic figure in Mormonism - she has carved out a position for herself to wield more power than any woman that has come be...

Alas, I understanding what you are saying. Let’s call it the Sistoration! In some way I think Wendy is actually doing more harm to the teen/young adult membership base. I’ve heard comments from the youth who think she is crazy and can see through her bull crap as much as we can. It’s ironic that Aun...

I like her. But I like her because she's kind of terrifyingly fascinating. So let’s celebrate this deviation from the normal Mormon misogyny and continue to speculate how long it takes her to wrestle power away from Elder Oaks before RMN gets transferred to the spirit world in 2 years. YES^^^ :D I ...
