Re: WML - Are you in town this weekend?

Yup. They definitely stop asking when you constantly say no. I don’t answer texts. Nor phone calls. That really helps too.

Great job on the boundaries.

Re: Mormon No More on Hulu

I have to give a shout out to Sally’s mom and dad. They have decided to wear rainbow pins to church so that everyone knows they support their daughter. Sally’s mom is asked if she is worried what people think and she’s says “not anymore… I don’t care what people think anymore.” She explains how issu...

Re: Mormon No More on Hulu

Just finished the first episode as well. This is so well done so far as I've gone. I was most touched by Matt Easton's motivation for coming out as he did, and his touching interaction with the bereaved father of another BYU student who took his own life. I wonder if JRH had any idea about that and...

Re: Mormon No More on Hulu

That's amazing that Sister Ryder watched this with you. Do you think that you will watch any further episodes, or is it just too stressful? I have difficulty watching or listening to video/ audio with the voices of G.A.'s, other church officials, etc, because they strike me as being so toxic and so...

Mormon No More on Hulu

We just finished the first episode of Mormon No More on Hulu. The show tells the story of Lena and Dally, two Mormon women, each married to men and have children together. They meet at a ward party and realize they are in love and are lesbian. They each divorce their husbands in order to pursue an a...

Re: "Keep Sweet" or I will break you.

We watched the first two episodes last night. It seems life as a polygamist was vastly different after Warren Jeffs became the prophet and tightened the rules and control by moving everyone to short creek. In some ways this is parallel to the last 25 - 30 years of the church changing its focus to ob...

FLDS Garments and Temple Outfit

We watched the first two episodes of Keep Sweet last night and noticed that Uncle Rulon was lying in his casket with the same pleated robe and green apron that mainstream Mormons use today in temple ceremonies. Is the temple costume the same for both sects? Also wondering if the garments are the sam...

Re: Elder's Quorum Service Coordinator? (Calling offered to me)

Mormons helping each other move since 1847!

Imagine where the church would be today if Brigham Young called a moving coordinator to help the saints move West and that guy turned him down?

Utah would have probably been a whole different town!

Re: Baptized my Son

Congrats! Family milestone moments are always the best when you can navigate the Mormon land mines and nobody gets their spiritual legs blown off. The temple recommend requirement to confirm the Holy Ghost is just so stupid. Like your priesthood is invalidated if you don’t have the paper? Or your no...

Congrats RR! What matters is how well the two of you connect. Do you care about her feelings? Does she care about yours? Is there communication? Trust and safety? Is the balance of power even? Not all marriages are worth saving, but if the relationship is one you care deeply about and both of you a...

Susan Hinckley has a soothing voice and is able to articulate the problems very eloquently without anger.
I'm not familiar with her, RR. How or is she related to Pres. Hinckley?
I’m really not sure. I don’t believe directly related but I’ll have to see if I can find out.

Sister Ryder is having a faith crisis. It’s been a few weeks and a lot has happened. I’m hesitant to type all this out for some reason.

Thanks for the insight Allie!

I wonder what will happen with Will Bagley’s research materials and information he’s collected now that he has died?
