Re: Should I get a Priesthood blessing?

Oliblish! Wow, I hope you can recover with your eyesight. Tough question. The idea comes from the heart of your compassionate daughter. I’ve watched a few shows where miracles have happened. Not debating they are true from a religious point of view or not. Just saying that hope is something we all h...

Re: Garments and Temple recommend interview

What do you think born in the covenant means? Conceived through the garment “veil”. Birthed though the garment “trap door”! That’s the way real hardcore Mormons Do it!! Mormonism is really weird isn’t it? Religious underwear has to be the single most silliest thing ever. Here, put this on! God wants...

Re: Garments and Temple recommend interview

It should not be removed for activities that can reasonably be done while wearing the garment For me,...

Re: Moving out of Utah

Welcome! I grew up in the PNW before my family moved around a few times and ultimately ending up in Utah for my senior year of high school. I left Utah to go to college and never returned. It was a good decision. For you, put yourself first in your decision. Don’t move to run away from Mormonism. Mo...

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

I get it.

I’m married to a TBM!

What???? You want me to take my garments off? The cog dis pushes out all rational thought.

Re: Garments and Temple recommend interview

Thanks for posting the wording.

Seems like it generalized the question.

However, the day and night rhetoric is still burned into every TBM’s collective memory.

No way any TBM is removing their garments to sleep comfortably at night.

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

Exactly Graey! We would have to clarify that the 90 day challenge would be centered around giving up the organizational aspect of the Mormon church and not God. This should point out that Mormonism isn’t the only pathway to worship God. Any TBM confident in their belief in God should be able to cont...

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

It sounds like it’s time to negotiate a joint sabbatical or 90 day No Mo challenge. Ask her to give you a 90 day test run to see if she CAN be happy outside of the church. After 90 days, if she isn’t happy then she can return. But it has to be 90 days out. No garments, no attendance, no BoM reading,...

June 13, there is a church-wide youth lesson on "Avoiding pornography". True to form the manual doesn't say anything helpful either way, it just quotes scripture about how lust = adultery, and refences old talks that talk about how addictive it is if you take one step in the wrong direction, that y...

The Lords Battalion

It's 7:00 am Sunday morning when my phone rings waking me from my slumber. It's the Bishop. He needs me to come down to the ward house for another intervention. I jump in the shower, find a pair of clean garments on the couch wondering why the wife didn't get the laundry put away yet. I find my suit...

Re: The fall of Communism/Mormonism

With 130 billion in the bank they can survive for a ling time. Agreed. The church ideology can fade but the organization will perpetuate forever. As long as they continue to build temples, hold no audience conferences, and self report their numbers, the church will never fail. A Potemkin village of...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

President Nelson could really make an effort to get the Utah Mormons to vaccinate if he had another policy change revelation that required vaccinations as part of the temple recommend process. Russ, go get the light pen and politely ask Wendy to leave the room again! New CDC data shows that vaccine ...

Then after the question, the interviewer must read you a big paragraph on how the church wants you to wear them.
Is this online anywhere? I googled but didn’t wade through all the Mitt Romney and Mormonboyz garment porn results.

Curious to find where to read this.

Thank you both for your thoughts. I need to process some more and then come back to this. A friend is sorting through childhood trauma and the common response seems to be to forgive the offender.
